Do I need an impedence box to help my recording quality?

    OK, here's the deal.

    The signal of a passive bass or guitar has high impedance, this makes it susceptible to noise and loss of highs in long cables.

    Low impedance signals don't loose highs in a cable.

    Balanced means that the signal runs through 2 lines instead of one, with one signal inverted.
    Now any noise that entered the signal will be cancelled when the inverted signal is reverted back.

    Hope that helps.

    Impedance = resistance in a alternating-current circuit.
