I have just bought a Vintage Symphony Reslosound Ribbon Microphone and have not yet plugged it in. I know that I should definitely make sure that phantom power is off or it will blow or at best be damaged. As I normally use condenser mics I normally have phantom on and I worried about accidents happening. If I use the Ribbon mic with a 1/4" jack connection into an UNbalanced jack socket, am I guaranteeing that I won't be getting phantom power, or even the shorts that cause bursts of power that can also damage to the mic. This part is still theoretical as I do not yet have a suitable connector to fit at the microphone end. Looks like opposite way round to a normal XLR but I am still researching.
