I have a small 50 watt PA (Kustom PA50) that I'm running a passive sound hole pickup and mic into. But, I want to boost the output a bit. Rather than a separate preamp for each item, I thought a…Continue

"It could work.  I'd try to borrow a mixer to try it.  The trouble you may run into is that the mixer may give your PA a signal that's too hot for its preamp and overdrive it.  If you have a gig with a house PA you probably…"

Do I need a mixer?

I have a small 50 watt PA (Kustom PA50) that I'm running a passive sound hole pickup and mic into. But, I want to boost the output a bit. Rather than a separate preamp for each item, I thought a mixer (with preamps) might work better. Can I then run one of the channels of the balanced stereo outputs thru a 1/4 cord to the PA? And if I want to run it into the house PA at a live gig which has XLR input, do I use a passive DI box from the mixer to the house PA? If a mixer is the solution, any…See More

"I have found that the cheap seymour duncan mavericks and the Lace California soundhole pickups work great and they are cheaper than most.  Granted I do enhance the sound with numerous pedals and eq's.  I would use them versus…"

"Did it work before now using this setup .Playing to 200 people with an amp that size is a big ask . Are you using acoustic or electric strings on the guitar ? What kind of solo act are you doing ."

"A single-coil soundhole PU should work just fine; it's essentially an electric guitar pickup. How is the distance from the pole pieces to the strings?   That can make a big difference."

Acoustic guitar thru elctric amp. Help!

I am playing an acoustic guitar with a Seymour Duncan Woody SC Single-Coil sound hole pickup thru a Roland Cube 15 amp and not getting much output. I have to crank up the volume to max to get enough volume to be heard in a room holding maybe 200 people and no other instruments. I figure I needed a preamp. I had read on another site that you could build a preamp out of a smaller amp by "rerouting the out-to-speaker wires to the big amp's input and rerouting the small amp's input to be the big…See More
