    Using Venue with a K&K equipped guitar

    Hi there,

    I recently tried a guitar equipped with a K&K Pure Mini through my Venue DI and regardless of anything I tried with the settings it still sounded dull and muffled....I guess this is due to the Impedance mismatch (k&K Output is 1M and Venue input is 10M).

    My question is this - could I use something like a Boss GE-7 (input imp 1M ohms, output 1k ohms) between the guitar and the Venue to correct this, or would seeing 1k at the input affect the Venue's performance? I know that K&K do a basic and inexpensive preamp but I've already invested in the Venue for my other Lyric-equipped guitars and would like to still use the tuner and boost functions with a K&K equipped guitar.

    Any advice most welcome!

    Hey Lewis,
    That actually would be an inexpensive way to cut off those low-end, boomy frequencies in the K&K. If you use a 1M input on the Boss, you should effectively change the impedance, and then be able to run into the Venue to get your additional gain and tone shaping.

    It really seems like a good solution.
