Hurdy Gurdy preamp


My hurdy gurdy has four magnetic pickups and a xlr connector per pickup.

For the moment I play through a Behringer XR18, without any preamp.

It works, but the gain has to be rather high. Using external effects this results in noise.

Can I use something like the Klark Teknik CM- 2 as preamp to boost the signal before entering the mixer.

Any other suggestion is welcome, I am a bit of a dummy concerning sound technique.
