I took time from my busy schedule to answer this question
  because I know about it. Trust me.

Have you ever heard the expression "You don't know what you're missing"?
One never knows what one is missing until shown how good it could be.

Good? No, how about just freakin' proper from the start.
Some of the Lace pickups Wayne mentioned are 20K resistance.
You know what's going to happen when that guitar coil
  meets that Zoom's 1.8K input impedance?

The audible result of all that loss was put so expertly by Mr. Goetze:
  "bite" or "sheen" or "character", in this case quite a lot.

DI box, stomp box, effect box. Yeah it's all the same. Low impedance
  output. Wayne knows that and he knows what I meant.

Cheers. Tim.
