    Hi There,

    I have a number of these mics which have am 1/8" (mono) jack on the end of the cable. I used to use them for live performance on my drums with an Italian made mixer which seemed to deliver the phantom power to the mics. I have just tried them in my studio and the signal from the mixer is too noisy. I would also prefer to plug the mics directly into my A/D unit which has phantom power.

    Does anyone know how I can rewire these - perhaps with an XLR adapter to work directly with the phantom power on my recording hardware?

    Any tips appreciated!
