M1 Series 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 guitars soundboard with a punchy string attack, the M1s 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 doesnt 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 guitars soundboard, a body signal is created in the suspended coil that adds presence and realism to your amplified sound.

M1M1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup
Available in completely passive design, the M1 delivers professional amplification in minutes. Adjustable pole pieces provide balance from string to string and the 1/8 jack makes removing the pickup a snap for when you are in the studio. Install the pickup with the strapjack or use the 10 external soundhole cable for absolutely no modifications to your prized instrument.

• Highly Feedback-resistant
• Adjustable pole pieces
• A perfect blend of string and body signal
• Quiet hum-free operation
• Built-in gold plated 1/8" jack
• Includes a pre-wired strapjack harness and 10' cable for no modifications
