Is M80 swappable with my existing M1 Active 1.8" cabling
First time here. Looking at getting the M80. Proud and satisfied owner of M1 Active for a number of years. I like the idea of more body amplification, battery checker and the ability to switch to passive mode. My luthier installed end pin jack and cabling for the M1. Can I use the existing cable and simply plug in the M80?
1975 dreadnought Martin clone
Finger picking and strumming style
Wireless Line 6 Relay ( for wandering around the audience)
Two amplification modes:
BOSE L1 Compact using line out no guitar preset on Channel 2 the BOSE guitar preset on the L1 compact is too boomy for my ears
BOSE T1 mixer using M1 Active Tonematch preset into line out on Compact
Also have BOSE L1 Model II and use it for larger venues always with the T1 Tonematch
Thanks for your help.
The M1A and the M80 use the same output harness. So you can use the M80 with the jack that is already installed, and without any modification to the guitar.
Thanks Caleb! Just another question regarding the M80. I have watched all the performing artists and note that they are seated. Since I am often moving about among the audience will the M80 be too senstitive to my movements? I often play a duo where the other player is using an arranger keyboard with drums,bass, etc. My thought is the M80 will help me cut through the mix when I play with him. Thanks again.
The M80 is sensitive to the body, but not overly so. I've seen the M80 used live by some very active and energetic bands, as well as playing it myself, and I've never noticed any over sensitivity.
And we have lift off! Picked up this afternoon (pardon the pun) easy switchout and a noticeable improvement over an already good M1 Active. Very happy! Thanks to Lorne and all the crew at LA Baggs!!!
