LR Baggs M80 Acoustic Guitar Pickup System
The soul of your guitar is in the body - from the tone woods that it's made of to the fine details in the way it was put together. A typical magnetic pickup hears only dry strings. Our patented and iconic LR Baggs M1 was the first magnetic soundhole pickup to capture the upper frequency resonances of the guitar's body for a more natural sound. The M80 pushes this idea to the limits by sensing the entire frequency range of the top, back, side and neck resonances in all three dimensions. Tap on the body and you'll swear that there's a full range mic inside of the guitar - but it's all coming from the M80. This all-in-one pickup installs in minutes and faithfully captures more of your guitar's acoustic soul than any single pickup ever created. Amplify more of the guitar you paid for.
HOW THE LR BAGGS M80 ACOUSTIC GUITAR PICKUP SYSTEM WORKS
The secret of the M80 is the patented floating secondary coil that acts both as a humbucking coil and a 3D body sensor. By deftly unlocking the secondary coil a robust full range signal is created as the body vibrates and the floating coil interacts with the magnets. The coil is tuned to respond to the entire frequency range of the guitar and the proprietary suspension allows each axis of the 3D coil to contribute, thereby adding enhanced richness and complexity to the sound. Finally, just the right amount of body signal is added to the string signal for an all-in-one pickup that will capture the character of your guitar like no other magnetic pickup ever created.
