    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like you want to use it backwards to take a high impedance guitar amplifier direct output signal and run it into the XLR microphone input of a PA system. I don’t think the transformer is rated for line level…it might distort

    Will there be any harm to the equipment?

    Thank you for the response. Actually, it is used at the guitar amplifier end of the cable to adapt the XLR to 1/4" into the PA. The Fender Mustang is set up with XLR for the line out. The sound does not appear to be affected, but I am using overdrive. I'll try it with a clean signal. Thanks again.

    Gain Changes with impedance transformer

    I'm looking to up the impedance of a signal from a keyboard for use with various guitar pedals and a guitar amp (some pedals seem to deal with impedance mismatches better than others). I'm wondering if the gain boost from this transformer is simply a product of changing impedance or whether this transformer is also stepping up the gain from mic to line level.
    Seems like they don't make in-line transformers for anything except mics.
