Piezo/contact mic summing through guitar pedals

Ok so I'm trying to experiment with some contact mics right now. Here is what I want to do.

I have a vibraphone what I want to put piezo (or contact) mics on and then sum all out into guitar effects pedals. Can anyone think of an easy way to do this? I found a company that makes a pickup system for vibraphones but I don't think paying $2000 for it is worth the price.
Any help would be great! Thanks

What pops to my mind first is you want to build a simple high-Z preamp for each piezo. Google that.

Then take a mixer from suitable pricerange. Or, maybe you can find a mixer with enough high-impedance inputs...

I shure did! (Pun intended!) I ended up using an old shure mixer that can switch between high and low impedence inputs and outputs. It only has 4 ins and one out. I'll use 4 contact mics going in and connect the output to a pedal board. Sounds really good!
