Amplified Tone

This is a subjective topic, and a lot of things are involved. However I have found a few things that have made life easier in my search for good amplified tone.

The Perfect Rig

Impedance Matching

Microphones, Amplifiers, Effects, Computers, Stereos, Mixing desks and PAs all have impedance levels (ohms, kOhms and MOms) and operate within a certain range of Watts which are measured dB, dBu and/or dBm, as well as dBV. To get the best from your equipment, it is vital to match impedance levels correctly and ensure the dB levels are well within operating range of the equipment you're connecting together
