Very good value.
I used this to replace a Fishman Prefix Plus-T unit in a Carvin Cobalt concert acoustic. The Fishman unit just conked out after 5 years. Too bad; it was a very nice pre-amp.

Surprisingly, I didn't lose any tone at all with the Dean Markley ProMag Plus. This pickup had excellent articulation and clarity across all 6 strings. Very nice, balanced tone. I liked it so much that I hard-wired the pickup to the existing end pin jack and discarded the Fishman unit. Don't get me wrong-the Fishman was great, but it was dead and I didn't feel like shelling out for a replacement. I use an out-board volume and effects pedal anyway, so I can do fine without the expensive bells & whistles on the Fishman.

This is a very fine pickup, and yes, it does say 'Dean Markley' on it, but I note that a lot of guitars say 'Fender' and 'Gibson' on the headstocks. Is that any reason to slam them? Especially if you note that you don't own the pickup, and haven't even used it! Gimme a break...
I use it and highly recommend it.
For the money, it's hard to beat.

I used to play guitar in my church's praise team. My grandfather made a guitar on a Martin D-28 without a pickup, so I needed one to make thing easier. I bought this on a whim wondering what it would sound like. First off, the pickup didn't really fit well in my sound hole. Because of that, it would slide around in the sound hole and scrape the sides around the pick guard. Second, it didn't have a great sound quality. I really like a pure guitar sound, and this added some reverb that I couldn't really change. It also had some very loud humming when I wasn't playing, which is bad when you're playing in church. Third, when I put the jack on my strap pin, it didn't allow any room for my strap. It met the need, but I should have gone for something better.

        The ProMag Plus is a great addtion to my Fender Malibu. It is very crisp and clear and greatly ehnaces the acoustics of this guitar during worship service.

        * I'm puzzled by this pick up. Had one previously which was absolutely great. no trouble to use, just good good good. I gifted it to a friend and bought my current one which is ok but just doesn't sound as good as the previous one. it's good just not as good as my older previous one ??????????

        I would recommend it, but with a warning. of my recent experience

          Comments about Dean Markley ProMag Plus XM Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

          I already own a Dean Markley acoustic guitar pickup with a male jack, which I used before buying an acoustic/electric guitar. I bought this one because it had a female jack, which would allow me to use a cable of any length. I thought I could attach it to the strap pin, but when you do that, there is not enough room for the actual strap. There is also an audible hum from the pickup. As far as sound quality, any type of sound hole pickup will make an acoustic sound a little like an electric guitar. But obviously there are situations where you might not have an acoustic/electric available and you can readily take this in your gig bag.

              It is a good pickup. Works well on my wife's 12-string. Too long for smaller instruments such as my Little Martin, my tenor guitar and my bouzouki. If it were 1/2 to 3/4" shorter it would be great.

                This was exactly what I was looking for. It works great it you wanna just plug in a practice amp and play. Installation was a breeze. Like the other reviews stated, you have to turn up the volume just to overcome the guitar itself, but that's to be expected. All in all, great product for the price

                I'll admit,I was sceptical,even hesitant about purchasing this product,but I am surprisingly pleased at its performance. There was no-hum or feedback,it fit nicely and looks decent. I would recommend it to anyone looking for this type of pickup.
