    If you take apart a 9v disposable battery, you will see that it's made up of six very narrow cylindrical batteries. In an alkaline battery, these six batteries each have a voltage of 1.5 volts. ...
  2. LR Baggs and rechargeable 9v batteries.

    Rechargeable batteries have really improved over the past couple of years to the point where I feel pretty comfortable using them. With 9v batteries, there are several variations: lithium, regular...

    That notch should work really well then. A little more on my bad Carvin S600 experience. When I got home I tried the amp again and it sounded fine until I turned it up pretty high. That day we...

    Ok, I found a good deal on a used Session DI and decided just to go for it. What I really need is the notch. Hopefully the touch of saturation and EQ/compression will sound as good as it does on...

    The guitar sound in that Charlie Worsham video is just spectacular. I've listened to all the M80/Anthem demos on YouTube and that one just stands out head and shoulders above any of the rest. ...

    How about with the M80? I know that the saturation and comp/EQ are going to sound great, but how about the notch filter? I just moved from an M1a to an M80 and at least on my guitar, the M80 has a...
  7. Session DI and 200hz resonance

    Another note. I saw a country band last night where the acoustic guitarist was using an M80 pickup. The guitar sound was pretty trebly and thin. Otherwise the band sound was top notch. My guess...
  8. Strong 200 Hz peak in M80.

    OK, a little more on this. Looking at an RTA, I can see the problem. The M80 has a strong resonance at around 200 hz. On the Carvin S600 this resonantes the cabinet like crazy when I turn up the...
  9. LR Baggs systems and acoustic amps.

    This horrible experience with the M80 and Carvin S600 has me wondering about LR Baggs Anthems, Lyrics, and M80s and acoustic amps in general. I've read some posts by some people who are pretty...
  10. Not good with Carvin S600, fantastic with everything else!

    Today I went over to a friend's house to practice and since we were going to need three channels (his and my vocals and my guitar), I grabbed my Carvin S600 to use as a practice PA. My guitar with...
  11. 4001

    Ok, I just put an M80 in my original Recording King replacing the M1a. It sounds fantastic! The issue of the the glossy body squeaking is simply not an issue. The sound is great like it is on the...

    Ok, I tried it but the bridge end of the soundhole is even worse for accidentally hitting the pickup. I'm back to the recommended positioning. I'll just adjust m y playing style.

    Is the same true of the M80? I don't want to use it left handed but, in the current position, my fingers often brush against the pickup. Would reversion the poles and installing it at the bridge...

    Well I got the M80 today, and popped it in my new Martin DX-1 right before heading off to an open mic. Wow, I really like this pickup. Once I got home I tried it through my amp (an Henriksen Bud). ...
  15. Finally getting an m80

    OK, I'm back. When I was last here, I had just bought an M1a and had it installed, only to get home and realize that there was the new and improved M80 version.

    The other day, I found a really...

    One last question about the M80 vs the M1a: How is the M80 for fret squeak? Twice the body sensitivity might exaggerate the squeak but the way the body sound frequency response is in a lower range...

    These days I do more video than music, and when I do do music, it's sort of sneaking it in. Anyway, here is a video I did for a local Celebrate Recovery program (a Christian 12 steps program). The...

    I just found this. Not in English but you can tell which is which by watching him change the plug. A mic comparison of the M1a and M80 with a soft fingerstyle, and while they both sound pretty, the...

    I will add to this rather than start a new thread since my subject is related.

    I just bought an M1a the other day and had it installed in a Recording King guitar that I bought the same day. It...
