I wonder if someone here can give me some advice on DI boxes. My current 'plugged in' set up involves a Fishman Neo D humbucker and a Behringer ACX1800 - not great, but all I've got at the moment.
Have often thought the output from the pick-up was a bit thin, but then thought of, in the absence of a preamp, boosting the guitar's output signal by running it through a DI box. (I have an old, but functional MTR DI-3 active DI box, I acquired some years ago.) I tried it, running it into the XLR on the mic channel and it sounded noticeably better. Have also run it through the instrument channel, using a 1/4" jack, rather than an XLR.
My question is, while I don't believe this will damage the amp - correct me if I'm wrong here - would I be better running it through the 'Link' output (intended for a monitor) rather than the 600 ohm XLR output.
Here's a link to a newer version of my DI box:
A swiftish answer would be appreciated as I have to accompany a singer using the above rig next Saturday. And yes, it's at times like these that I wish I'd bought a small PA, rather than an acoustic amp, but as I was playing in a band at the time, another PA was superfluous.
