joms Posted September 29, 2013 Share Posted September 29, 2013 I recently purchased a classic guitar in hopes of being able to play it someday. I understand that I am very late in the game (since I am already 40yrs+ old) but heck, I have some spare time and I have the desire to push through so what the hell. Anyway, I need some help to understand some stuff. My Ibanez G200ece-nt guitar which I bought for around $260 here in the Philippines has a pickup/preamp installed in it but when I tried inserting it in my allen&heath zed10fx mixer going to a QSC K10 speaker, the sound wasn't as good as I expected. I understand that my guitar is not that good hence the cheap price but i'm just starting out and if i do well, then i'd invest in a much better guitar. Until then, I just wish to upgrade either the pre-amp/pickup or whatever to get a better sound. I have read around and I am willing to try out the Radial JDI Direct Box due to its good reviews. Aside from this, what would you upgrade? Should I upgrade my pre-amp? the pickup? etc? Note: The reason I am getting a Radial JDI is because I will be changing my Zed10fx (with internal DI) to a Presonus 16.0.2 mixer (which does not have an internal DI). The Pick-up is a B-Band Uder Saddle Transducer UST as per the manual but I don't know what it looks like.
