The trouble with low z microphones is that some times

Once a Hi-Z mike sends it's signal out it needs a short low capacity cable
to keep from effectively shorting the highs. Putting a transformer in the
mike is ok as long as the cord is low capacity and short. The 9 foot cord
sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. The reason, I thought, for the
LowZ mics was so a long cable, 20, 30 40 50 feet would not suffer such
troubles. The idea of a mixer and then the Z conversion sounds good.. Just
another $0.02.. Mike
