Hi there, Quick question... Will a Schertler DYN-B work directly into the desk running on phantom??, or is it crucial that the Pre-all preamp be used too? If indeed it does work without the preamp, is there any loss or change in the sound ?? I think the DYN-B is great (...sound guys love it...mostly because, unlike most of the mics Ive used, they can't hear the drummer breathing through it!!) ...But basically, when I'm not using it as my onstage sound i.e.just sending it to the house, I'd rather not have to carry the preamp around with me. Any ideas...? Cheers, Mark.
