I have read somewhere that some people have taken the 1st pole piece totally out as well as the 2nd. Is this right?

I have run it to my Fish Pro EQ to my Boss VE8 and it ready to rock, baby! Except for that string. Always somethin, eh?

* Yo BK, yes go ahead and remove the 1st/high E pole and see if that works....I tried that at one time but had to put it back in because then the B was louder. So I set the E till was balanced with the B, then adjusted the rest. My high E pole is about halfway up from the bottom of it's cylinder.

** The Pro should help tame that mid honk between 700 and 2k...I'm lovin' my Baggs Align EQ, such a complimentary difference maker!

Thanks Eric!

I want to get it sorted because I am going to a friend’s house in the near future.....he also has a Blues King, and he has the bigger band type version of m A&H mixer with a couple of large powered JBLs. Plus, he just bought an AER 60 amp....

I've done the same with mine. I removed the e string
compleatly and cranked the b down as far as it will
go. Also cranked the g down as it picks up the b as well .
especially when bending the b.

The deed is done - I removed the 1st string pole, there was none in the 2nd as from the factory.

I like it! I have the others down low to get more ‘wood’ and I really like that sound (eq’d through Pro-EQ).

It is a little bit soft, 1 string, but easier for me to adjust to than the thing too loud! Also depends what chords you play.....

Glad you got it sorted out BK....once you find the guitar that is your best match for the M80, then maybe you can keep it in that one on a more semi-permanent basis and tweak it that much more.

Hi everyone, hi Eric, resurrecting this post for some advice.
would it be possible to know the frequency of the mid pot of the Loudbox and how much is the fixed db cut of the Align's notch?
I'm about to put M80 in my 2016 D18 and I'd like to get the stellar sound Im hearing in this post
thanks everyone for the help
Luca

Hi Muttley,

See my post #6 with pics in this thread, they show my Loudbox EQ & settings on the Align as well as the placement of the M80 in my D18 too. Maybe it will help, and thank you for the kind comment!
