You can't. A mixer won't take the input from a guitar. You would need to connect the guitar to an amplifier and then connect the output from the amp to the mixer.

A mixer is what it is, a device to mix lots of incoming audio signals and mixing the volumes to a number of speakers.

The unit does contain pre-amps, but not to run a device.

    Put an advert in the local paper for a 'roadie' and ask him to give you an hour of his time to show you how to set up audio gear for a gig. Or go along to a local bar or club and ask the guy on the sound desk if you can ask him a few questions about setting up audio gear.

Electric guitar or Acoustic guitar,Which is hard to play?


Electric guitars generally have a lower action (strings are closer to the neck), lighter gauge strings and easier access higher up the neck. All these things make them physically easier to play. Also with the addition of an amplifier it means you don't have to work as hard to get a louder volume.

However if you get a nice acoustic that is setup well, they can also be a pleasure to play.

What you choose I think should be dictated by what music you like.

How to Choose A Good Beginner Guitar


Many guitar beginners go for acoustic guitar as their 1st guitar. It not a bad idea to get started with acoustic guitar. Listed here are a few greatest acoustic guitar models you can take into account when you buy your 1st beginner guitar.
Being a Japanese electric corporation, Yamaha began to make all kinds of instruments include guitars and grew to be a brand-new star in the market . Their guitars targeted at all kinds of customers from learners to skilled musicians.An example of the quality affordable beginner acoustic guitars they supplied is Yamaha FG700S. This model has a solid spruce top and laminate sides and back with the good tone just cost you about 200 bucks. Most beginner's acoustic guitars usually have high action that is the gap between guitar strings and fretboard. The sound of this Yamaha guitar models is very excellent regardless of the high action of the factory setting.
Fender is a reputable electric guitar provider and provides consumer with its Fender type electric guitars. Fender acoustic guitar is not just as popular as its electric guitar. Yet the low end entry level line of Fender acoustic guitars are also the number 1 choice for some beginning learners. On most online shopping websites, you could find Fender acoustic guitar. One of the best entry level acoustic guitar model of Fender is the Starcaster acoustic guitar. It owns solid top and laminated back and sides, that is great for its price tag. In brief, Fender Starcaster is an inexpensive beginner guitar.
Alvarez is a guitar brand that is not as famous as other giant companies. The Regent series from Alvarez is affordable as well as built with premium quality. This model has solid top and Dreadnought size. The sound is deep and powerful. You might feel it is a more expensive model if you hear it the first time because the tone is quite distinctive and awesome. The price of Alvarez Regent is about TWO HUNDRED bucks which is very appealing and might be the greatest affordable solid top guitar model.

    Owners manual for fender dg 22 ce guitar


    Go to Fender's site and see: http://intl.fender.com/en-CA/support/articles/?section=articles&search=maintenance. There are other articles that can add up to a manual, but a manual isn't usually part of an acoustic's "case candy". There just isn't much difference between one acoustic and another in form and function.

    If the mixer is receiving signal, then the problem is pilot error at the mixer, not the guitar. You did not mention what type of mixer you have so I have no way of helping. Common problems would be failure to send the guitar channel to the mixing buss, leaving the channel muted... but we really need the mixer and model number to give more help that that.

    This is for the takamine DI+. Is there a wiring diagram as to how to cable from my guitar to the amp? Basically how do you connect the DI+ using stomp boxes. Also, is their a special cable to use to...


    Most of the pedals are daisy chained right from the guitar. The output of the daisy chain goes into the DI box set to ground lift. An XLR to XLR cable goes from the DI box to the amp or mixer. Do NOT try to loop the sends and receives of the amp through PEDALS! The sends and receives are LINE LEVEL which is too high for pedals. The sends and receives are for external effects MODULES and EQ's that take line level. Some of those effect units have a foot switch to turn them on and off.
