If A Tube Mic has its own Power Supply is A Micpre Necessary

Greetings and salutations to all you recording enthusiasts. I'm gonna be purchasing an SE z5600a tube mic pretty soon. Thing is i've acknowledged that fact that it does come with its own power supply which can provide 48v of phantom power. My question is will a seperate mic pre(Grace Design 101) be necessary to juice up the mic???

No, I won't be making any unannounced "visits" to your studio begging for work or anything, just wonder what you do......

I'm curious as well... I saw a thread that audiokid posted about doing some show case - bio type stuff. Here it is:

Teddy, my web site is down. Most of the voiceover work I do through Sterling Productions, in Sterling Virginia. We have a nice API control room formerly built and owned by Paul Wolfe of API fame now Tone Lux.

Lately I have not been using my remote truck " The Audio Oasis", as I have another full-size Neve that I'm ready to disseminate on eBay and really can't get in until I get it out! (The bitch has 2 Neves)

The truck is a Mercedes-Benz 1117 31 foot-long 25,000 pounds 3 rooms with central heating and air-conditioning. I'd be happy to send you some pictures of you would like to see it?

Lerxst,

Thankx for the links! REMY is a woman I can look-up to! I love to "git' bitchy", myself! Just ask my legions of former bosses! I believe very few truths change ears without controversy -- most folk just want to "stay sweet", as they slide right down the tubes to oblivion.

--------------------------------

REMY,

(Referring to the second link from Lerxst) Shake 'em up, REMY! If "they" give you any guff, I'll help you scratch their eyes out! BITCHES UNITE!!!

Again though, much as I love to push people for work(God knows I need it!), I am not doing so with you! I have(Or had) no idea whether you used/did/needed VO talent(Or maybe even me?), just enjoy your posts and replies, learn from same, saw you were in one of my favorite areas, rather near me, and wondered what you do, generally... I LOVE Baltimore! I'm a train fan, A "Bay" fan, a boat fan(I sort've "own" a little boat, but that's a long story, that I hope to make shorter, soon. If I get the thing and get it going, We'll go sailing on the "Inner Harbor"(Or the "Outer Harbor", wherever that is?) - soon as I learn HOW to sail! - and reflect on "the biz"(In my, relatively speaking, very minor league fashion), life, whatever... Love to see some pix of your projects! I'm sure we all would!(I have a 4x5 view camera and B&W darkroom - sadly, due to my poorness and lazyness, being suplanted by digital "snaps") "The Audio Oasis" sounds neat-o, with my sad facility simply being a tiny part of the vast, barren desert surrounding it...

teddygvo@ptd.net -- I don't mind sharing my email address... ANY email I get(Bridge in Brooklyn or "sexual helper" to sell? Send me an email!) can only help defer the intense loneliness of my shallow and confused existence......
