I posted this in "Gear" and I'm thinking that perhaps it belongs in this group.
I have a question for the recordists out there. I have an AEA Tube Micpre for my ribbon mic. The AEA is designed for ribbons and as such does not supply phantom power, in fact, it doesn't like phantom power. I have an AT 8801 power source for my condensers and I've been told that the 8801 is capped at the output end and doesn't let phantom power out, and I'm wondering if I can use it to run a condenser through the AEA without harming it. I appreciate any responses, thanks.
