As With Any Passive Ribbon Microphone, Care Must Be Taken.

Caution: Care must be taken to ensure that the D82 is not plugged into active phantom power. As with any passive ribbon microphone, Improper or intermittent cabling combined with phantom power can permanently damage the ribbon. The D82 should not be used in a kick drum where the strong air blasts might permanently stretch the ribbon. Due to the strong magnetic fields inside a ribbon microphone, areas where ferrous dust and filings are present should be avoided. A pop-filter is recommended for close vocal use.
