Hello. I'm from Spain and I have a number of devices L.R. Baggs are: Double Barrel, MixPro, Element and M1a. I don't like the sound of the Double Barrel because of the disadvantages of micro. The Element alone has an acceptable sound but improvement. I just purchased the M1a and I like its sound better than the sound of the Element, but I'm thinking of doing a mixed Element-M1a through MixPro. Do you know how it sounds that mix? I wish I had some reference before cutting the cable of the M1a and solder it to preamp Element. Thanks.
