I have had one of these, the same one, for 21 years. I first bought this as a means of amplifying my acoustic through an amp for live playing. I have used it, with moderate success for recording; however, it is always better to mic a guitar for recording IMO.This thing has been well worth the price. It has been through a lot of gigging and abuse for 21 years and has never failed to perform. After all these years, being in and out of my guitars, the thing has gotten a little loose, but still works great.For the money, and for the purpose it was designed, this thing can't be beet.

I bought the Dean Markley pack that came with two sets of strings and the pickup. I was hoping to quit having to mic my guitar when playing and singing. I used the thing a couple of times, but had to turn the gain on my sound system almost all the way up to get a tiny sound from the guitar. I then read in the instructions sent with the pickup about how to establish a new "solderless" connection if needed. I followed the instructions, and now there is no signal at all. I have cut the cord and rescrewed the set screw several times and have gotten absolutely no sound out of the pickup. So I packed it up and put it in a box never to be used again. I am disappointed!

          No volume

          By JD83

          from North Carolina

          Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag SC-1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

          I bought this pickup to put into my epiphone acoustic. The volume is way too low. If i plug into an amp with normal settings, I have to turn the volume up to ten to hear it. The only way that I can get adequate volume is by plugging it into a footpedal for an electric and putting the gain up all the way. Was very dissappointed with this product, and would not buy another one.

          Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag SC-1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

          I was looking for a pickup to install in Carvin C350 without having to do any modifications, I put it in and plugged into my Fender Champ XD on the acoustic channel and was very pleased with the tone, highs and lows excellent natural sound of the guitar, I would recommend it to anyone looking for just play an occassional gig or parties.

          from Chicago

          Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag SC-1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

          I got this to play my Martin acoustic live, this thing is a joke. ALOT of hum, very little output and clunky to play with. Spend 20 bucks more and get a Fishman, or at least the humbucker, this thing was a waste of time and money

          Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag SC-1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

          i tried it out there and ran it through a kustom acoustic amplifier. it sounded great. im sure its not the best sound you can get but all i had to do was slide it under the strings and plug it in, i didnt have to drill anything into my guitar or anything. only a 3 for features because theres not a whole lot to it, just slide it and go. i wish there was volume control or something but ohwell. also, its a little bulky, but it is still manageable. very manageable in fact. i am completley satisfied and recomend it to everyone!!!

          Volume IS an issue

          By J. Ken

          from Boise, ID

          Comments about Dean Markley Pro Mag SC-1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

          Like another reviewer, I also have had problems getting enough volume out of this pickup. I play with a worship band at my church and in order for them to hear me, they have to turn the gain up on my channel all the way to 10. I'm thinking I'll need to get an in-line power amp or just upgrade to a real acou/elec guitar. This pickup is ok for solo songs with just me and the guitar, though.
