Building on the success of the M1 body sensitive soundhole magnetic pickup, L.R. Baggs is introducing an active version in 2005. The M1 Active is powered by a 3V lithium battery that will give you 1,000+ playing hours according to the company and features a built-in volume control.
The M1 Active will still feature the same Tri-Axial Dynamic Technology found in the passive M1 and includes adjustable pole pieces for perfect balance with smooth, threadless tops to protect fingernails. The pickup also includes an internal Class A discrete preamplifier/line driver and a simple 1/8" jack on the pickup allows for easy installation and removal of the M1.
Release Date: February, 2005. List Price: $249
