Got a guitar amp with a high-impedance 1/4" jack? Want to plug in an XLR microphone? Get connected with the Whirlwind Little Imp impedance-matching transformer, sporting a female XLR jack and a male 1/4" TS plug.
With a low-impedance input of 250 ohms, and a high-impedance output of 50,000 ohms, the Little Imp is perfect for plugging your XLR microphone into an instrument input, like the 1/4" jack on a guitar amplifier or guitar effects pedal.
Note: since it connects to a TS input jack that doesn't pass phantom power, the Little Imp shouldn't use condenser microphones that require phantom power from the mixer.
