SM58 works into preamp, but SM81 does not.

FAQ #1205 Updated September 24, 2008


I just bought a pair of SM81 mics and wonder what type of preamp is needed for them to work properly. Will an ART Tube MP suffice?


Any microphone preamp that supplies phantom power will work.  Make certain to turn on the phantom power for the preamp; that you are using. Contact ART to find out if this preamp has phantom power.
