M1 ACTIVE

ACOUSTIC GUITAR SOUNDHOLE PICKUP

Description Options Buy

Body-Sensitive Magnetic Pickup

The M1 Active is a patented humbucking pickup with a twist. In a common stacked humbucker, the lower coil cancels hum, but doesn’t contribute anything positive to the sound. We unlock the lower coil with a carefully tuned support that allows it to capture higher frequency resonances. Read more...

As the pickup moves with the guitar’s soundboard, a body signal is created in the suspended coil that adds presence and realism to your amplified sound. The plug-and-play design has built-in electronics with audiophile-grade circuitry for that sweet and pure acoustic sound we are known for. The internal electronics boost the pickup’s output for a full and direct signal to any acoustic amplifier or P.A. system, eliminating the need for any external preamps. The addition of a built-in volume control provides the player quick access for any performance.

REVIEWS

“Plugged in, my M1-fitted Alvarez produced an amazing lifelike tone that sounded more resonant and “woody” than anything I ever heard from a magnetic pickup.” Read more ›

Danny Miles - Guitar World Acoustic

“The tuneful M1 Active is much less prone to feedback than mic-plus-undersaddle pickup systems, making it ideal for onstage use.” Read more ›
