    So... I have a recently aquired Sadowsky Bass Preamp DI. Although it is not powered by phantom, does anyone know if the unit can be damaged if Phantom is accidentally turned on?

    I have a friend who lost his Radial Bass Tone Bone to Phantom. I have the EBS Micro Bass II, which does a lot but sometimes I need a smoother sounding DI. The Sadowsky fits this situation nicely. I just want to make sure it does not get damaged.

    I sent a note to the Sadowsky website/email but I have not received a response.

    Thanks

    How long ago did you send the email?

    I'd be surprised if Roger didn't protect it against this. I'm even more surprised the Radial didn't

    Hey Got2 -

    It had to be Saturday the 2nd or Sunday the 3rd when I sent the email.

    Send it again. They are usually pretty prompt.

    If you're in the US. Call.

    Hey. I talked to Kevin at Sadowsky today about something else. Your question came to mind.

    It IS protected against phantom.
