I have been strumming a steel string acoustic Takamine for about 15 years. I thought of getting an electric recently but I've been hesitant because I'm not sure if I'd be satisfied with whatever inexpensive electric I could afford. Most electrics I tried that I liked were around $400 or more. But then I stumbled upon this little gadget. This product is extremely impressive for what it does and how easy it is to install. For anyone who ever had a nice acoustic guitar but wanted to try an electric without spending time and money selecting a new electric guitar should try this. You simply fit the padded device into the sound hole as described in the instructions and presto, you have an electric guitar. Plug into an amp or as in my case, a digital recording studio and you have an infinite number of rich electric sounds to make. You'll be pleasantly surprised because this will make your acoustic guitar sound very natural in a clean set-up or as raunchy as you want it with a heavy distortion set-up on your amp/studio/processor. It's amazing. Placing one of these in your favourite acoustic guitar is like getting a brand new electric guitar soul in the body of what you already know and love. It's totally awesome because this pickup will let you keep your acoustic sound even amplified, or enable you to live the freedom of a full blown electric guitar in all it's glory. To top it all off, you're using the legendary "humbucker" to do this - with absolutely no invasive action to your guitar. The clarity and richness this pickup provides is as beautiful as you want it. Yet, in the same manner, it has the ability to give you the mindblowing heavy electric sound when your sounding device is set up for such. This pick-up let's you have it all - acoustic or electric. Unless you need to show off an electric axe on stage, this little device will surprise your ears. I was totally blown away with the results.

i got this cuz my pro mag was too noisy. traded up to this. first, i couldn't get the pickup to lie flat in the soundhole. it got either too high on one side, or the other. second, the just snapped crackled and popped like crazy. if i strummed the guitar hard it cut out. what a piece of junk. so, i took it back, used the credit i got on it, and bought a M1 Active by LR Baggs.

Not great, but not bad

By Michael Ste. Marie

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

It's an adequete pickup. Nothing to write home about. Fairly quiet, but you have to give it some volume for it to properly work as it should. It's worth the money, but don't expect to be blown away by it. A good entry level buy.

Low output

By Robert Odden

from Maple Grove, MN

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

I just returned the single coil for a humbucker thinking that it would have a higher output to my amp. I am using a Messa Boogie DC-3. Yea, I know - it is for electrics. Anyway, when you turn up the master volume, clean or dirty, you can finally hear your guitar. The sound quality is good but with too much hiss. I even went to the Guitar Center by me and plugged into one of their "accoustic guiter amps" and still had to turn it way up - almost all the way - same result. While it is a really nice sounding pick-up, it appears that it needs a pre-amp for better results. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I am not alone. Still a decent value for great sound reproduction.

Very low sound

By Roger Newman

from Pensacola, FL

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

I bought this pickup based on decent reviews. However once I plugged it in to my Roland Cube, I couldn't hear it over my guitars own sound with the volume all the way up. I took it back to the store and we tried it in a Fishman amp and same result. We pulled another one out of the package and same result. It is possible that this pickup requires a pre-amp or a more expensive amp than I have. Good luck if you go with it.

dm promag

By Tom Robbins

from chico,ca

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

The promag pickup fit perfectly into my Guild D25 and the tone is deep and rich just as the Guild is unplugged.Im playing through a Carvin AG100D with a built in 5 band EQ.This pickup responds well to finger picking with no changes to the EQ which is cool because I frequently switch between that and full strumming.All in all Iam very happy with this pickup,the foam inserts hold it in place and it can be raised and lowered some.

Terrible Sound

By Mary Kulinski

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

I bought this pickup to record with Garage Band. In order to get a recording with any volume I had to turn the gain way up which gave me a lot of hiss on the recording. I didn't get the beautiful sound quality that other people had experienced.

Just too good to be true.

By Michael

from Plano TX

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

This pickup is just too good to be true. I thought that it would suck but decided to try it anyway. It sounds very realistic and is easily installed. Just stick in the soundhole and you're set. I just needed to amplify my acoustic guitar at first because micing it had too much feedback. So this worked and I can throw on some gain and shred or solo. If you have a nice acoustic and can't mic it or plug it up already. Then get this.

Great sound, but I have one complaint

By Vinnie

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

For as affordable as this pickup is, I'm very impressed that it gives me such a full, natural sound. I haven't had any problems with feedback either. However the cord crackles quite a bit if I move around while playing. It's tolerable, but I'm still trying to come up with ways to fix it. But overall, great sound.

Exactly what i needed

By James McCane

from Minnesota

Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

This acoustic pick up was exactly what i needed. I wanted to write a review to help you out there that are looking to buy something like this. ive never used an a acoustic pick up, ive always had an acoustic-electric guitar, but then i bought a straight acoustic and need to beable to plug in. I didnt know what sound i would get with this. it is great tho, it keeps your acoustic sound and is easy to install. So for those people out there that dont know if they should buy it because your worried about the sound it will produce, i would recommend buying it, trust me it will keep your acoustic sound.
