Dean Markley

The most popular acoustic pickup is even better!

The Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand is a humbucking acoustic guitar soundhole pickup that has been re-voiced for better string balance, and enhanced low-end, midrange, and highs with sparkling harmonics. Finer winding wire has been used to provide improved magnetics, plus an efficient, low-noise, slim line cable and a solderless, quick-mount jack.

    This Pickup had More volume than the more expensive gold model . I run it thru a ZOOM A2 Processor and am able to get a professional quality sound of a Yamaha FG730s running 11-52 Phos Dunlop Strings, which are all I use now .I have 2 of these pick ups and recently bought a Baggs M1 , To my surprise, once processed the Markley holds it's own well ..If some kind of inline preamp or processor is not used, it will definitely not sound as good . Simple is always best in my opinion . I've always liked the sound of the Markley Sound hole pickups, except for the Z-7 which I think they quickly discontinued years earlier .. This is a Quality low priced pick up as I see others prices rising to the hundreds ... pric

    I bought this to amplify an old Ovation that I bought that has no electronics built in. I didn't want to drill any holes, so I bought the Markley pickup instead. It's OK. Not bad, not great. It'll do. You really need to put it through a pre-amp first though, otherwise it has very weak output. I use an old Fishman model G for that purpose. So far, so good. I've gigged with it, with no trouble. It doesn't seem to have a good even balance from string to string, but it's not terrible.

            Best Of Both Worlds!

            By WildcatVince

            from Detroit, baby!

            Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

            Overall, this is my first acoustic pickup, and this is the first time I've been able to plug in one of my acoustics (Washburn D100DL). I bought it yesterday to prepare for a gig that I have tomorrow. I brought it home and plugged it in through my GDEC 3, and it blew me away. Why spend extra on an acoustic-electric when you can get the guitar you want and use this? It's the best of both worlds.
            Not many features, but I like how you can customize your sound.
            Wish the cable was thicker and longer, but overall, the rest of it is awesome.
            Now I wish I bought it at Musician's Friend...

            Great Pickup

            By Tomas Mitchell

            from Salt Lake City Ut

            Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

            I just bought this today and right off the bat love it. For those of you who can't get sound out of it read the instructions. Raise it up closer to the strings. It is that simple. I play through an Acoustic AG60 and all my guitars sound awsome with this picup.

            I would have liked a volume dial but this is a passive pickup and I can live with that. I think many issues people are having with this have to do with the solderless jack, if your sound is week or cutting out adjust the jack as the instructions say.
            Cable isn't as big a gage as I would like.

            Great pickup for the price

            By Spike586

            from Ohio

            Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

            When my main guitar was in the shop, I needed a decent, easy-to-use acoustic pickup for my backup guitar. The Markley ProMag Grand exactly fit the bill. Easy to install, w/good balanced sound. Used with LR Baggs Gigpro preamp to boost volume and minor EQ tweak. I had no trouble with the low E-string as some have reported. Played through a Marshall AS-50R and my church?s soundboard/PA and sounded fine on both.Pros: Humbucker eliminated hum I got with Markley?s single-pole pickup. Ease of install. Decent balanced sound for the price. Can move to other guitars if needed.Cons: Low output level?easy to correct with preamp. Slightly lower volume on bass strings?again, easy to correct by raising pickup on bass side while leave treble side lowered?all explained in the instructions.Recommendation: If you?re looking for a relatively inexpensive, decent sounding, easy-to-use pickup, buy it! I am very happy with it and would absolutely buy it again.

            I recommend this pickup to anybody

            Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

            I used this pickup with my favorite acoustic guitar for years. I played lots of small venue gigs, and the sound from this pickup was always a very nice reproduction of the sound from my guitar. I placed the pickup as high in the tone hole as I could, and the sound was great, without volume problems. I also recorded with this, and had no complaints. It did everything I ever needed it to do. Buy this one (the black colored one, not the natural colored one)!

            works well live - clean and clear

            from Baton Rouge, LA

            Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

            When I place it even with the sound hole on my 1985 Ibanez v302 12 string strung with 6 strings it is very clear, sounds as if mic'd, very clean sound. My Yamaha 2006 FG 700S for some reason doesn't sound as clear, for some reason. Both guitars have an excellent acoustic tone on their own.
