Ok...

Thanks for the help. I did some research; so given your math: > A typical LED wants around 20mA current, and at least a couple volts. Solving > for current... > I (current) = V (voltage) / R (resistance), or R = E/I. > So, R = 48/0.02 = 2400 = 2.4kOhm ...don't I want to calculate the "voltage drop" ...

Testing for phantom power, blocking it...

Hi - I want to build or buy a simple tester for phantom power. I've forgotten what little I used to know about designing circuits, and was wondering if anyone had some guidance: My first inclination was to just buy a male XLR jack and wire 3 different LEDs across the 3 pins (1-2, 1-3, 2-3), but 48V ...

Gotcha...

Hey, thanks for all the info.

I haven't gotten into it too much on my AKG C535, which i use for my (singing) vocals, because i was nervous about it, but i did do it from time to time. No more. :-) I'll find an old 58 to play with.

Appreciated,

When is beatboxing dangerous for mics...

Hi - I assume that a dynamic mic can handle the SPL of beatboxing (correct me if i'm wrong.) I wonder if they can always handle the moisture, over time? I.e., corrosion? With condensers, specifically the AKG C535, it seems like it would be a bad idea, for either reason? Ideas? Info? Thanks! -casey
