LR Baggs M1A Active Soundhole Magnetic Pickup
While it’s always fun to play with toys, a simplified all-in-one approach is definitely preferable when it comes to fine-tuning the sound of your instrument especially when that instrument is something as delicate and malleable as an acoustic guitar. L.R. Baggs’ M1 Active pickup features adjustable pole pieces for each string, giving players the ability to fine-tune each string sound to make adjustments based on string type and gauge. The built-in electronics in the preamp give this pickup a major boost that eliminates the need for additional preamp processing which avoids any signal coloring or disruption of fidelity that can occur when you start adding other elements to the mix. Its humbucker design eliminates the risk of any feedback or humming, which is one of the bigger concerns typically held by acoustic guitarists. Best of all, this pickup is made to last a long time; it can be powered for up to 1,000 hours by one single 3V lithium coin cell battery.
