Seymour Duncan Active Mag In-Hole Acoustic Pickup

Install a pickup on your guitar easily and quickly, without damaging or modifying the instrument, with the Seymour Duncan Active Mag in-hole acoustic pickup.

The Seymour Duncan Active Mag is a warm and natural sounding active magnetic sound-hole pickup that captures and accentuates the best qualities of your acoustic guitar.

Voiced to accentuate the best qualities of your acoustic guitar, Active Mag is a high-quality hum canceling acoustic pickup. Adjustable pole pieces allow you to balance the output level of your strings, and volume and magnetic Stack pickup. Active Mag captures the detail and dynamics of your playing and provides warm, clear acoustic tone that complements your guitar whether you play fingerstyle or with a pick, at any volume you need.

Active Mag is flexible enough to be useful in almost any context - whether you're playing live or recording, tone controls on the body of the pickup gives you easy access for adjustments. The tone control boosts or cuts treble, allowing you to adjust for the room you're playing in or adapt the voicing of your instrument for multiple genres and styles.

Active Mag can pop in and out of your guitar as required (with the endpin jack supported by a special built-in strain relief loop) or can be permanently installed. It's powered by two CR2032 batteries that mount directly to the pickup, making battery changes a cinch.

I bought a Takamine GD30CE 12-String a while back, and it turned into a purchase I regretted. Up until today, that is. The electronics, and pickup system in the GD30CE was atrocious, and rather than just selling it, I figured I'd try to fix the problem. So I bypassed the entire factory system, and I installed a mic inside the body, and this pickup in the soundhole. Amazing transformation! Now I can record using this guitar, and play live with it. The pickup alone sounds wonderful, but adding the mic inside the body gave it more realism, as it picks up the subtleties of playing an acoustic guitar, and I can mix the two sounds as I like, either for enhanced live use, or stereo recording. It would bne nice if this pickup came with a pair of batteries, but luckily, I had a couple in my studio to get things going. Buy a pair of CR2032's before you get this pickup, and you can start playing within 15 minutes of when you receive it.
