I've bought a Behringer Ultragain 2200 preamp and want to plug the guitar in. I know that usually when I'd plug my guitar to the amp or audio interface the input impendance would be around 1 milion ohms and this preamp I bought has input impendance of 60k ohm (as I read in the manual).
With 60k impendance compared to 1 milion I reckon it will probably be too less to plug my guitar in. But there's the other thing. Manual says that I can use this gear as a DI box. Does it mean that my high impendance signal from electric guitar passing through the input of the Behringer's 2200 preamp will be turned into low impendance? If yes, it's understandable its line load is about 60k ohms and not 1 milion as it would be in amp and audio interface.
Usually DI boxes' output impendance is around 600 ohms. If my gear works the same way, then I'd understand why its line input impendance is around 60k. This way it would be ratio 100:1 (60k:600).
So basically my question is, will my gear (preamp) turn the high impendance of my instrument down as DI boxes do and therefore process it with its 60k load, or maybe it doesn't turn it down and the guitar signal will be too hot for the interface (because of the 60k load instead of around milion)?.
