Default Phantom power and mic with power supply?

Hi all!
I have a problem, I want to use the M-S recording technique with my octane preamp, caus it has this feature, with a Rode K2 mic and a AKG C3000b, but the AKG requires phantom power and the K2 has a power supply and the preamp will only put phantom on both channels at the same time! Will the phantom power harm the power supply of the Rode mic? It doesn´t say in the manual if you can use phantom with the mic pluged in.

Default Re: Phantom power and mic with power supply?

You should be fine, the only mic's you have to be EXTREMELY carefull not to put on a phantom bank, are ribbon microphones.

Dynamic mics, and Tube Mic power supplies will ignore the 48vdc.

However, an improperly wired mic cable, carrying phantom can blow up a condenser.
