Great Pickup for Any Acoustic InstrumentIt's easy to amplify your acoustic guitar with the Dean Markley Artist XM piezo pickup! The Artist XM has been a favorite of gigging musicians for over 17 years, thanks to its natural sound and great reliability. This patented pickup design utilizes a lead differential weight system to react to compression rather than bending, like other piezo pickups. The result? A dynamic and natural-sounding amplification of your instrument. The Artist XM mounts on your guitar's top using a special adhesive that allows you to attach and remove the pickup repeatedly, without affecting your guitar's finish. The 24" cable terminates with a female 1/4" jack that connects to your guitar's strap button, keeping it secure and ready for you to plug in. It's also great for other acoustic instruments like cello, viola, and double bass. If you want a great sounding and easy to use acoustic pickup, you'll love the Dean Markley Artist XM!

To plug or not to plug
by gary j. moore from Staten IslandFor anyone recording at home or even in the studio and for those of us who favor weirder or totally acoustic instruments, this is the device that can save lots of time either in performance or recordi... read more [+]ng. Just stick on and go. The rosin will leave a trace behind on darker colored instruments, which can be removed with guitar polish. And, in live performance, you'll have to stay close to your amp to monitor volume. But this little do-dad does the trick! close [-]

Fantastic inexpensive little pick up
by Bill Prescott from Salisbury, MAWant to amplify you nylon string guitar? Or your non electric acoustic guitar.This passive pick up does what it is supposed to do and well. You can use this with or without a preamp . I recommend usin... read more [+]g one (better impedience match) I recommend the Fishman Pro EQ II. I use this and go from there into a Fender 212R awsome sound. Take it one step further and tie in your chain a Fishman Aura 16 and you will take any guitar a mediocre or even cheap guitar and make it sound like well take your pick with the Aura 16. But back to the pick up. Just find the sweet spot use a little putty and your playing, Amplified and nicely. Another pre amp choice and less pricey is the Presonus Tube Pre. If you have a series of stomp boxes this work well too. I have used this in many configurations and it hasn't let me down. Last and certainly not least if you are using a mic to amplify your guitar cool now use this as a supplement and now your mic doesn't have to be so hot. Less feed back issues, less unwanted stage noise etc. I am currently using this on an older Yamaha nylon string guitar and it picks up the full spectrum of sound. Not to boomy and not to brilliant just right. Best $39 I have spent musically... close [-]

This Is A Great Value!
by from Northern VirginiaThe Artist XM transducer Works like a champ.

I ordered on a Fr... read more [+]iday and had the transducer the following Monday ... with standard shipping! The sound through our church's house system was great. The mounting adhesive allowed me to quickly find my mandolin's 'sweet spot' and the standard female 1/4" jack housing that attaches to the strap button stays in place. This is a great value! close [-]

better than expected
by philip klineburger from blacksburg, vaI bought this after buying an expensive b-band pickup system (~$140). This sounds almost as good. I've been using it on a sitar and a Kora (a kind of harp instrument). I love the fact that you can ... read more [+]move it around a lot to find that sweet spot. thus, its good not just for acoustic guitars. I'll probably get another one and avoid buying high-end pickup systems in the future. more than pleased! close [-]
