  • Q & A

    Is the MB 3k a dynamic or condenser microphone? I have this one and it only worked for me when I plugged it in to phantom power. It didn't work when I just plugged the mic into my keyboard amp. No sound. What is wrong the mic or the mic input on my keyboard amp? I know the dynamic mic doesn't need phantom power.

    Behmer

    This microphone is a dynamic microphone. Plugging into a amplifier, such as a keyboard amp may not work as the input is probably a LINE level input rather than a MIC level. You may use the CP8201 impedance transformer to accomplish this. http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/electronics/f4b735b4cabc30ea/index.html

    What is the SPL of the MB 3k Handheld Hypercardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone microphone?

    Michael

    Dynamic microphones do not have SPL ratings.
