Question about Dean Markley Artist Transducer Acoustic Pickup

Open Question

I have the Dean Markley Artist Transducer Acoustic Pickup installed in my Yamaha classical guitar. Is there a recommended cable to use because EVERYTIME I take the guitar to the rehearsal studio and to gigs, I have to mic the guitar because the sound is ssooo minimal that the amp or PA system that it is hooked up to has to be turned up all the way and it is still not loud enough. The transducer is placed inside the body of the guitar on the bridge. Thanks for your help!

Issues With Dean Markley ProMag Plus Acoustic Pickup

Hope you didn't throw it out. I know this is a bit late.

Cleanly remove about an inch from the end of the cable.
Loosen screw in the jack (yeah, it's there on the side).
Put cable back in jack and push it till it won't go anymore.
Tighten screw. You need to tighten enough so screw will breach the insulation and make a ground connection.

I have a dean markley promag grand acoustic pick-up which connects to a plug in stap button. when i plug in there is no sound unless the volume is turned up on the amp to the max and then a very faint...

The output of this is fairly low. Do make sure you have steel strings rather than bronze for magnetic pickups like this. Make sure this pickup is oriented per the instructions.

The low end gives a lot of feedback if turned too high. Any reasons why?

Probably the soundboard is resonating. If you out your hand on it or the strings it will probably stop resonating if it was just on the verge of feeding back. This is the main reason why solid body guitars were invented in the first place.

There are ways to minimise this, however. Speaker placement, eg have the speakers beside you and facing away to the audience. Stand further from the speakers. Use an eq pedal and lower the gain around the resoant frequency. Use a chorus/flanger pedal. This can help smear the frequencies and reduce feedback. If you google "reduce acoustic guitar feedback" you should find other ways. Also, if there is a way to increase the gain of the pickup by placement, do that.
