I bought two of these mic primarily because they were cheep and they had a phantom power converter. I plugged them into my Yamaha 03D and was surprised by the overpowering white noise. If anyone else finds this, here's what I did. you can cut the cable in two and solder an electret capsule onto the end of the cable (white wire hot). If you look around you can find some good ones for less that 5 euros. I how have a cheep and quiet phantom powered mic.
