Impedance matching via tuner?

Discussion in 'Amps, Mics & Pickups [DB]' started by Danny Adair, Dec 16, 2002.


  1. What impact does my Boss TU-2 electronic tuner have on the impedance of my signal?

    I use a Realist pickup on my Spiro-strung cheap flatback German bass and I have been experimenting with routing the signal into:
    1. tuner > Fishman ProEQ > AI Contra
    2. ProEQ > tuner > AI Contra
    3. tuner > AI Contra
    4. ProEQ > AI Contra
    5. AI Contra only

    Thanks for your help,
    Danny

    The TU-2 has a 1 Megohms input impedance, which is just fine with about every pickup.

    Here's the spec sheet.
