    Are you sure you need match impedances? It isn't necessary when going from low to high, in fact, this is normally the goal.

    I think I remember reading somewhere that guitar pickups have a source impedance of several thousand ohms usually, so use a pot to reduce the voltage going into the pedal & call it good.
