Sensitive stuff

Martin739, 02.08.2013
I have mixed feelings about this pickup. I use it on my D28, and it does give a lovely sound, with a real clarity to it. But it's quite a different sound to the unamplified tone of the guitar - much brighter, but in a pleasant way, not overpoweringly so.

But where I really struggle is with the physical sensitivity. It is designed to just not pick up the electromagnetic effect of the string motion, but also the physical movement of the soundboard, so as to capture Newton Faulkner-style body taps and the like. Personally I don't need this, and it means that I get some clicking sounds coming through the pickup while I'm strumming, as a result (I think) of my plectrum either hitting the edge of the pickup, or the edge of the soundhole.

So I've had to adjust my technique to strum further down the strings towards the bridge, which obviously leads to a slightly different sound as well as a slightly less natural playing position.

It's now workable, so I can enjoy the sound of the pickup without the clicks. But I'd rather have something that gave me that sound without requiring me to change my style.

L R Baggs M1 Activ--Very good Value and Sounds

David2344, 22.01.2015
L R Baggs M1 Activ--Very good Value and Sounds.
I have a normal acoustic guitar a Simon and Patrick and I did not want to drill holes all over it for an internal pre-amp etc so the LR Baggs is the best solution.
You will need some Luthiery skills (but not a lot) as you do need to drill a fairly large hole in the end block of the guitar if you want to use the end pin jack socket in the guitar itself. I think there is an option to leave the jack socket outside the guitar but this is messy and prone to pulling out.
The LR Baggs pickup sounds really great (if a little Bassy) but you can adjust the Pole Peice heights to balance the treble/bass strings levels--which on mine I needed to do as the G and B were way too loud
Overall it sounds very nice and does not feedback unless you go full out.
The volume control on the pick up works well but is a little fiddly if you have big hands.
I would give it 5 out 5 all round based on the sounds, price and ease of installation.
