Quiet Coil NC-1 Acoustic Guitar Soundhole Pickup
The Mojotone Quiet Coil NC-1 active acoustic soundhole pickup reacts beautifully with the natural frequencies of your acoustic guitar while also eliminating the unnatural “electric guitar” tone associated with other magnetic soundhole pickups. Our noise-free pre-amp design voices the pickup to closely mimic the sound and frequencies of a condenser mic, giving you the purest and most uncompromised magnetic soundhole pickup tone ever heard.
With its “mic-voiced” pre-amp and perfect string to string volume, you will be sure to inspire and be inspired. Comes wired with studio quality Mogami cable attached to a hard-wearing stereo Switchcraft end pin jack that can be permanently or temporarily installed. And best of all it's proudly made right here in the USA by Mojotone!
Voicing & Tone
Voiced and EQ’d like a microphone to emphasize your guitar’s pure and natural acoustic tone; No more unnatural highs or mids like with other magnetic soundhole pickups, and no need for extra gear to compensate for an underwhelming pickup tone!
Balance & Perfection
Specifically designed to have perfect string balance and volume with normal bronze or phosphor bronze acoustic guitar strings. There’s no need for adjustable polepieces or special strings to compensate for unbalanced string volume! No more annoying loud high E and B strings with muddy low strings!
Noise & Feedback Resistant
Noiseless preamp design makes for the quietest performance possible in the studio or live. And best of all, it’s feedback resistant!
Lightweight & Simple
Extremely lightweight and compact design (less than 1.6 oz!) allows for quick installation without modification, loosening strings, or adding unwanted mass to the soundhole of your guitar.
Ergonomic & Friendly
Rolled edges and low-profile mounting ears keep the pickup from getting in the way of your picking while the natural cork pads protect the most delicate nitrocellulose finishes from damage.
Power & Convenience
Active 6V preamp with over 500 playing hours powered by the most common lithium 2xCR2032 coin cell batteries (Included). All in a convenient slide out drawer for easy battery replacement.
Installation & Quality
Low capacitance and flexible Mogami cable pre-wired to a stereo Switchcraft USA end pin jack. This can be permanently installed; alternatively, we include a clip for your belt or strap for a non-permanent installation. NOTE: Mogami brand cable is only used on pickups manufactured after 10/2022.

Great product. Prefer to the SBT versions I've also used. Furthermore, customer service if you have questions is outstanding.
Super products! Very pleased!

I have two of the Monotone NC-1 pickups. One is mounted on a Gallagher dreadnought guitar and the other on a Guild Jumbo guitar. I play in a church praise band and a Christian side band. I also do some recording work. For live amplification I use a Boss Acoustic Singer Pro Amp and Zoom AC-3 pedalboard.
I am extremely pleased with with the tone, quality of build and overall performance of these pickups. I had tried several pickup systems and reviewed many prior to my initial purchase of the Mojotone. I read a number of reviews when the NC-1's came out and bought my first. Then I bought my second.
Totally pleased with the product! Great tone, quiet and reliable.
By the way- as an aside- a couple years ago I bought a Mojotone loaded pick guard assembly for my Stratocaster. Amazing!
