Body-Sensitive Magnetic Pickup
The M1 is for players who love big acoustic tone With high feedback resistance on any stage. Combining the natural characteristics of your guitar’s soundboard With a punchy string attack, the M1’s body-sensitive design provides enhanced realism while cutting through a loud mix.
The M1 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. 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 M1 Active’s plug-&-play design features a preamp With audiophile circuitry for that pure acoustic sound we are known for. The built-in electronics boosts 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 M1 Active includes a volume control and adjustable pole pieces for perfect balance and tone between the strings.
