Hi all

I just got my new mixer Behinger UB2442FX pro, how ever I was wondering if some one could help me clear a doubt on Phantom +48 on Dynamic mic. I have 5set of Drum mics (CAD drum tour mic) which can be connected via XLR inputs on the mixer but If I need to use the drum mic set along with a condenser mic on the same mixer will the drum mics get effected by the +48 phantom power that is needed for the condenser mic, Or is there a risk on the mixer board if I supply +48 to a dynamic mic?

I am quite new to recording and would appreciate your suggestion and advice. Thanks to all in advance :lol:

all things being equal and no unexpected faults

there is NO problem

the phantom 48volts is equally on both pins 2 and 3
.. with respect to ground
the Mic trafo is on pins 2 and 3 so the net effect on the trafo is zero

that was a crappy explanation
do a google search and you will find many phantom explanations with diagrams

it's all good

I’ve never killed a ribbon, even! Did a video about it and plugged a ribbon in to check.…
