I'm considering getting a Tone Match for my classic. Do you recommemnd using a separate pre amp such as a Baggs Para Acoustic D I for an acoustic guitar?
Try it both ways & use what sounds best to you. I've done it both ways (with & without preamp) with both active & passive preamps with great results. The inputs on the T1® are high enough impedance that a preamp is not necessary.
I use the T1 with my Classic. I also always use my Baggs PDI, and always connect with XLR. While the technical facts are as Tom says, this is not really necessary, I just feel my sound is more full and I have more headroom "with" - I like the tone better. I go with what I hear and feel.
Best luck, Mike
Sometimes a preamp can buffer the signal slightly & give a more pleasing sound to a passive pickup. Do try both & let us know what you find.
What kind of Guitar do you have, and what kind of pickup system is in it?
Are you using Presets in your Classic with your Guitar now?
If you haven't auditioned all the Acoustic Guitar related Presets lately, then it may be time to do that again before investing more money.
Here are some ideas about Presets - Finding what works.
Try the Presets with and without the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI, if you have one.
