Very simple to install. Compact. Easy to switch from one guitar to another. Sounded really good on my 12-string. Worked great on my back-packer, too.
This pickup sounds amazing with great mids and lows but it only has one drawback which is that it happens to be a very quiet pickup. Even though it is super quiet it can get rid of undesired finger or picking sounds because its so quiet, so being that it is quiet it has its advantages and disadvantages. I definitely would recommend this product to other acoustic guitarists who don't want to drill holes in their guitars for some other pickup that costs twice as much. This is hands down an awesome pickup for the money.
It's hard to find a single coil plug-in and play pickup on a fairly tight budget. As a touring musician my funds are tighter than ever and for the price this Dean Markley pickup doesn't really have any competitor. I play it through my Ovation acoustic and though the output levels are quieter than I would like, the tones are round and warm which (are far as acoustics go) is the perfect fit for me! I would recommend this to anyone who is in love with the acoustic they have but want a cheap way to amplify it without changing too much of the natural sound.
Its not the best pickup, but it's okay. After about a month the input jack got messed up. Now whenever I plug it in to the cable it buzzed and won't catch sound. Just be careful when you play and wrap the cable through your strap so it won't pull and your in good shape. The other thing is that its really hard to get it on the strap knob.
I wanted a pickup where I could slide it in & out of the sound-hole on my 86' Alvarez' Yairi & not have to drill or modify anything & I didn't want a bridge pickup. Overall it sounds pretty darn good, I'm sure there are some more expensive out there that might sound better, but for me It worked out just fine on a Crate taos dsp acoustic amp & my Peavey Classic 50 4-10 tube. Occasionally I get a little bit of weird noise or feedback through my tube amp on lead channel, but it's not that bad & that's to be expected & I am not a stage/studio pro anyways, so who cares for $50. Its also very similar to the Seymour Duncan & others similar "woody's" in this price range.
I put this on an old Yamaha that has great sound, and fed through the 'clean' channel of a small Fender tube amp it soundedreally fine. It had a clear sparkling tone and well balanced bass. What it lacked was output-it forced me to turn up the volume to 5 plus just to get a good match with the acoustic. That and not having a volume or kill switch caused me to return it and get a DiMarzio instead.
