  • Acoustic/Electric Guitar Output

    I'm wondering what the signal output of an acoustic guitar with a built in pickup/pre-amp typically is in terms of impedance. Reason I'm asking is I'm wondering how best to plug into a PA system with it - direct into the PA or through a direct box which converts a high impedance instrument signal into a low impedance signal for input to a PA?

    Thanks,

    Greg

    You did not specify the circuit.
    Generally, an active preamp output will be a low impedance.

      It's the B-Band A3T circuit found in Simon and Patrick (one of the Godin brands) guitars. I thought the output would probably be low impedance but wanted to be sure.

        Jazz P Bass is right.

        Correctly designed (professionally designed always) pickup preamp has very
        low output impedance and may be connected to input with any impedance.

        The issue is only sensitivity of the input.
