My band started gigging a few years ago, and I noticed the need for an acoustic in some of our songs. My old trusty Epiphone didn’t have a microphone, and I didn’t feel like modifying the guitar permanently with some kind of internal microphone system, so I started digging on the Internet for an easier solution. I knew I needed something affordable and something I could attach and detach with ease.
I quickly came across the Dean Markley Pro Mag Plus, and after some closer studying and comparison I ordered one for myself. Initially, I was surprised by the sound quality. When I ran my acoustic through an EQ pedal, I was able to further fine-tune the sound to my taste. The pickup attaches easily, although you should be careful when doing it as you can quite easily chip the edge of the guitar's soundhole. As it turned out, two of my band members bought the same pickup based on my experience. A good product for a really good price.
