View Full Version : M1 passiv with other Preamps

09-21-2012, 02:37 AM

i want to use the M1 passiv wiht a non lr baggs preamp. Because I need a build in tuner, and parametric Mids.

Is there anyone who uses the M1 passiv with fishman prefix +, or other build in preamps ?

What are your experince about that kombination ?

The LR Baggs Venue DI might be a good choice.

Hi Steve,

The passive M1 has a fairly low output. I can say it would not hurt anything for you to connect the passive M1 into the pickup input of another maker's preamp unit but you will probably encounter a mis-match between the output from the pickup and the gain structure and EQ voicing of the preamp. The Prefix Plus is normally paired with a pickup with much higher output. Connecting a lower output pickup in its place will result in a weaker output from the system overall and a lower signal-to-noise ratio.
