L.R.Baggs M1 Active

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.

Body-Sensitive Design

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.
