Phantom Power

Post by Tom Roberts » August 4th, 2003, 2:17 pm

Ive got a basic understanding of what phantom power is:

An extra 48V potential boost across certain parts of capactor condenser mikes.

My desk can't provide phantom power and i'm thinking about getting a condenser mike for vocals. Can any one give some ideas as to the mikes I can't get because of phantom power and which ones I can. I don't want to spend much more than £150 GBP (roughly $200 USD).

Cheers
Tom

for about $200 us dollars you can get a Studio Projects B1 and a Behringer Ultragain 100 tube preamp which supplies phantom power. I use this combo and of all things it sounds best on acoustic guitar, but it works for vocals too.
