My first post smile

Does anyone know if the Yamaha CP5 mic input has phantom power?
I am looking to plug a Studio Projects C1 mic in there.

Hi and welcome.

No, only non-phantom powered mics.

I use a Sennheiser E945 with great results. Not too shabby for recording either.

Give the link a try. This is inexpensive and would allow you to use your mic.

Thanks Dave - Probably too much to ask I guess.

Thanks for the option Rick - although the C1 mic is XLR and I think the preamp is 1/4".

I have this unit at home and I believe it has both an XLR input and output.

Here is an extract from the user manual:

"Inputs
The TUBE MP provides both an XLR and 1/4Óinput jack. Use the
balanced XLR input for use with a microphone. Audio input as
well as phantom power (if needed switchable on and off) is supplied
through this jack. Use the unbalanced l/4Ó input jack for
instrument applications.
XLR pin configuration: pin 1 = gnd pin 2 = Positive (hot), pin 3
= negative.
Do not Use both inputs at the same time.
Outputs
The XLR output of theTUBE MP is active balanced You may Òse it
in an unbalanced configuration without harm to the output circuitry.
Use the unbalanced 1/4Ó jack for sending your signal to
amps, processors or other unbalanced configurations. Also, both
outputs may be used at the same time"

Hi Dave,

My post was in response to CMac's post, which in turn, was in response to rickshapiro's recommendation of this pre-amp:
http://www.zzounds.com/item--ART127

The extract I posted, was from the User manual for this model.
Sorry for any confusion smile

Even though there's no mention of phantom power in the CP5 owner's manual, couldn't we simply use a VOM to measure whether it exists or not?

Phantom power should always be switchable so you can plug and unplug mics like the C1 without breaking them. If it's not in the manual and there is no switch, then I think it's very unlikely that it has PP.

That said, you can software switch phantom power but I still think it would be very dumb to put PP on a stage piano..!
