Thread: Dean Markley's transducer pickup

    Default Dean Markley's transducer pickup

    Any thoughts on Dean Markley's transducer pickup? I a Dean Markley Promag soundhole pickup for my acoustics and love it. My flattop mando wants a pickup, too, but the prices folks are asking are more than I want to shell out.

    I'm not after sonic perfection, just playability. So if the Markley transducer makes a mando sound reasonably like a mando and there are no other weird issues, I'll get it.

    So tell me what you know.

    Thanks!

    I have one. It sounds OK, but not nearly as good as the K&K I have installed in my Breedlove FF. 'Course, it cost about 1/5th as much.
    Never say "bouzouki" to a TSA agent...

    Thanks! That's kind of what I figured.

    My squareneck has a K&K spider bridge pickup that makes my reso sound exactly like my reso.

    By the way, your "bouzouki" tag line reminds me of an old New Yorker cartoon. It's a picture of a firing squad. The men if the firing line all have smoking guns. The dead man tied to the post is wearing Bermuda shorts, a porkpie had, white socks, and sandals and has a couple of cameras dangling from his neck. The officer in charge is saying to his commandant: "TOURIST? I thought he said 'TERRORIST!'"
