Lyric/Anthem and PA Systems
I have one "Anthemed" guitar and one "Lyricized" guitar. I have a Venue pre amp.
When I play my own gigs, I play through the Venue into my own amp (Ultrasound), using the "guitar channel" (1/4").
My questions (I think) are about impedance; resistance and that kind of stuff.
At open mics, I play through someone else's P.A. Even though the Venue has outputs for each, there's no time for the luxury of comparing the sound through the SLR, three pin input with the sound through the 1/4" "unbalanced" jack;
!. Generally should either or both systems sound better through one type of input versus the other? Put another way, is there any advantage going SLR out of the Venue, or does the pre amp/direct box itself make the adjustment needed?
2. If I don't have my Venue, will either system sound different using a 1/4" cord to a P.A. 1/4" jack versus an adapted 1/4" plug/three pin jack cord?
3. How about just bringing the guitar and plugging whatever $%&**&$ cord the sound guy hands me into the guitar, like everyone else?
