OVERVIEW

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

This seemed like a great deal when I got it. Little "quacky" but really nice for the money. Then after 2 weeks it just plain stopped working. No sound. I read the box instructions for fixing the "solderless jack cable," followed to the letter, and it worked again. I baby it and don't use it much, and today (a year since I bought it) it just plain stopped working again. No sound. I tried the process again to fix the solderless jack cable (supposedly "easy" according to the company) and nothing. I have never put strain on it, kept it stored in the box or a protective bag, have used it for church music maybe 10-12 times and rarely at home. The cable has never been stretched, pulled, strained, nothing. Completely unacceptable. I would not buy this again. I am currently in contact with Markley to get my 5 year warranty honored (NOT a transparent process!).

    Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag Grand Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

    I use this on my 2 acoustics. EJ-200 and Yamaha 730. I didn't want to buy an acoustic/electric, even though I really would like to. This is a more cost effective option. The only problem is readjusting it with different amps. No EQ onboard
    I use my guitars for around the campfire and when the campfire is bigger, I use this. The first one I received stopped working after 2 hours. Sent it back, one week later, got the new one. Don't know and don't care what the cause was. MF made good on the purchase. So I waited a week before writing a review. So far, so good. Enjoy

            Best Of Both Worlds!

            See all my reviews

            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

            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.
