The L.R. Baggs M1A-L M1 Active Left-Handed Pickup has built-in all class A electronics that eliminate the need for any external preamps.
Makes the M1 Active Left-Handed Pickup compatible with any outboard equipment. The volume control gives you fingertip access in any performing situation.

The M1 Active is a humbucking pickup - with a twist. In a common stacked humbucker, the second, lower coil cancels hum, but doesn't contribute anything positive to the sound. In fact, it can muddy the sound of the main coil. L.R. Baggs unlocks the second coil. This allows
it to make a positive sonic contribution while maintaining the pure, open sound of a single coil - without the hum.

The M1 Active is powered by a 3-volt lithium battery and will give you over 1,000 hours of playing time.

In the M1, the hum-canceling coil is suspended under the main coil by a tuned support that allows it to move in three dimensions. The primary coil moves with the guitar top and creates a body signal in the suspended secondary coil. This brings the M1 to life, with string and body sound all in one. It's like having a dual pickup system in your soundhole.

L.R. Baggs carefully tuned the support to control motion in all three dimensions. This allows the presence and realism from the body signal
to be selectively added while suppressing runaway feedback.

Includes pre-wired strapjack assembly, spare pole pieces, self-stick wire clips, and spare battery.

Score one for the southpaws! Order today and get the amplified sound you want from your lefty acoustic.

nice pick-up

Comments about LR Baggs M1A-L M1 Active Left-Handed Pickup:

I don't like having to mic my acoustic for live gigs so have played with a right-handed pick-up turned upside down. I've had to mount the right-handed pick-up down toward the bridge because that's where the mounting clamps are. I got this pick-up right before our last gig and was really happy with how it reproduced the sound of my Martin DM. My old pick-up had a 9 volt battery which had to be replaced fairly often. This unit has a battery built in which is supposed to have 1000 hours of life; that's a lot of gigs and practices.

Comments about LR Baggs M1A-L M1 Active Left-Handed Pickup:

Almost bought a left handed acoustic electric guitar, then it dawned on me that I could turn my existing Yamaha acoustic into one. Installation was a breeze. Functionality is excellent. Sound and tone excellent.
