M1 and M1 ACTIVE - The M1 has spent the last few years generating a lot of praise for its easy installation and great tone. I've installed a number of these, and this pickup rocks. It's a magnetic soundhole pickup, but its tone is remarkably acoustic for a magnetic. The tone is no doubt helped by its individually-adjustable pole pieces, which let you adjust your string-to-string balance. And what really sets this pickup apart is the flexibility of its installation: You can hardwire it internally or do a temporary installation with equal ease. The pickup is packaged with internal wiring and a long external cable, all of which meet the pickup with 1/8" miniplugs, so you don't have to solder a thing. This means that you can hard-wire it into one guitar, and then when you want to switch instruments, just unplug the connector and move it easily to another guitar using the external cable. The standard M1 is a passive pickup, and is best paired with an external preamp like the Para Acoustic DI, but the M1 Active adds an internal battery and preamp, eliminating the need for external preamps, all for only $30 more. The Active version also features an onboard volume control, but does not include the external Mogami cable.

The M1 Active is a body-sensitive soundhole magnetic pickup designed to fill large arenas and cut through the mix on a loud stage without feeding back. Plug in and you will quickly find that it has never been easier to get a superior live sound from your acoustic guitar! Unlike other soundhole magnetic pickups, the M1 Active captures both string and soundboard vibrations, creating a huge and natural sound from one pickup. The adjustable pole pieces allow for the perfect balance in any acoustic guitar. Feel free to plug directly in to your acoustic amplifier or PA system because the built in preamp bypasses the need for additional external preamps. If you are looking to eliminate the trade-off between ease and performance, this is the pickup for you.
