The M1 Active is an acoustic soundhole magnetic pickup, with built in class A electronics, eliminating the need for any external preamp, and making it compatible with any outboard equipment. It also has an easy access volume control for any performance situation.
It is an excellent stage tool, with stability and feedback resistance in the loudest live situations. It can deliver superlative tone at loud volumes either strummed or picked, but it also possesses clarity and depth capable of capturing the nuances of delicate studio work.
The very punchy response that is effective at cutting through the heavy mix of a stage ensemble, and a round warmth that excels in solos and intimate environments. The M1 is especially appropriate for fingerstylists that want to play loud, and its body-sensitivity makes it a good option for top tapping and other percussive playing styles.
With a simple, plug-and-play installation procedure, the M1 works very well for those who want to run the wire internally (out the strapjack).
A truly superb piece of equipment, no acoustic player should be wihout one.
