    Everything You Need to Know About Microphone Phantom Power

    Everything You Need to Know About Microphone Phantom Power

    Good article.

    And I do have an mic that needs phantom power--but I have a Tascam digital recorder that provides it--so that's cool.

    Just thought I would share it to expand our conversations & share info.

    Wired with what?

    Condensor or dynamic mics?
    One type doesn't need phantom power, one does--so saying they're wired--I am not sure what you mean.
    Most mics I have seen that need phantom power will be powered if you plug a mic cable between them and a board of some sort that supplies the power
    I have seen some with batteries---but not too many.

    I typically use Shure Sm-57's which are dynamic. I never bought condenser mics or any mics that required a battery

    Okay--the phantom power for mics isn't a concern for you.
    If you are primarily using them for live performances--then that's the way to go--if for recording it's cool to have both.
    My Condensor mic is better than my dynamic mic...
