Another alternative is to try and find a compact and portable preamp
suitable for use with your machine. I expect a battery-operated preamp
for just such a purpose as yours will be hard to find and expensive, but
I think it will give better results. Electric guitar accessories might
be one place to look.

If you want to bootleg concerts, the downside is, more equipment to
carry and keep track of, and be detected by security. You may want to
invest in some duct tape.
