Dean Markley's Artist pickup is once again a pickup which is so unique that it is patented. Housed in a maple wood housing, Artist Transducer gives you that sound that every professional artist wants. Through use of a lead differential weight the Dean Markley peizo reacts through compression rather than just bending, like all other Peizo pickups. This unique patented design gives Dean Markley's Artist Transducer its high quality sound at an afordable price. Artist Transducer's special mounting adhesive allows the Artist to be mounted and removed many, many times without hurting the finish. The Artist pickup has many other uses besides amplifying acoustic guitars. It's a great pickup for Violin, Cello, Stand-up-Bass, Banjo, Mandolin, Piano, Horn, or practically anything else you would ever want to amplify. The bottom line is: if it vibrates, the Artist Pickup will catch the vibrations. You do whatever you want with them after that.

    Comments about Dean Markley 3000 Artist Transducer Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

    I bought a new Yamaha classical nylon string guitar a few years ago and wanted to add a pickup. I bought this pickup since it was cheap. It sounded great when I stuck it near the bridge. With a little digital reverb the sound was very close to the Simon and Garfulnkel/Peter, Paul and Mary acoustic sound. A couple of years ago I ended up glueing it to the inside (near the bridge), splicing the cable and mounting a phono jack to the back of the guitar. It's still solid and sounding great with no cord hanging down the front to hassel with. I don't know if there would be any feedback problems with other instruments since I only use it for home recording. Also I've never tried the in hole pickups so I can't compare it to those. I'm about to buy another one for a Jasmine.

    I bought this to use on an upright bass and found it also was useful on nylon string guitar and mandolin. After about 3 months it started to malfunction. I returned it to the manufacture and had a new one within a week. [...] - Kcorren
