OVERALL OPINION

Just one comment because we often read, as is the case in the notice below, that we should not use the 48v with ribbon mics on pain of ruining it.
It is true that this was the case when the microphones were asymmetrical output.
Now do not worry, because in most cases the output is mirrored with a transformer thus insensitive to food phanton, and in some cases manufacturers integrate a pre-amp to compensate for the lack of level, there must be a phanton, symmetry will then either be Tranfo mail.

So do not worry ribbon microphones are now much stronger than in the past: o)
good sound
friendly
