Love it

madis, 20.07.2017
Using it at home for recording, and so far I'm really happy with it.

Firstly installation. Enlarging the endpin hole on the guitar was a bit scary but I got a cheap reamer, used it without any power tools and after the hole was large enough the installation was a piece of cake.

Now, the only thing that the LH version seems to differ from the right handed version are the polepieces - if you buy a right handed version a bit cheaper you can convert it to a LH one in two minutes with the included hex keys. The volume dial is on the top side on the left handed version so basically it is just a right handed version turned around instead of an actual left-handed production. I'm totally OK with this as it sounds good and the button doesn't get in the way.

The sound is really-really good, somehow it picks up sounds of the top as well, the clarity is excellent and I especially enjoy the mids. I have not tried to adjust the pole pieces yet, but I believe it's possible to fine-tune it to be even more to my liking. So far I am enjoying it a lot.

Universal, powerful pickup

TiloK, 19.11.2009
The M1 Active is a pickup for any Western guitar. The installation is relatively easy and fast. We still have him done with a guitar builder. Especially with a more expensive instrument this is certainly appropriate. If, however, you have a little manual skill and tool to exactly increase the hole of the belt pin on the body itself, self-assembly is also possible.

To the sound: It gives the sound of the Taylor guitar in our case very well again. For a magnetic pickup in the soundhole, it is really amazing how well the character of the guitar is preserved. Powerful basses are just as possible as fine-grained mids and crispe heights. Completely without EQ a wonderful sound!

Thanks to the built-in preamp you can play directly into the mixing console - an additional special preamp is not necessary. The small volume control allows you to adjust the level directly on the guitar, which can of course be followed by an additional amplifier.

Due to the design, the pickup is naturally susceptible to feedback, but to a much lesser extent than I am accustomed to by other comparable pickups.

Conclusion: A great pickup, which is absolutely worth its price.
