Just what I wanted . . .I am a part-time singing drummer that needed a way to shut off my headset mic when not singing. I've placed this ProCo Power Mute to the left of my hi-hat pedal, within easy reach. The indicator light is really nice - one glance and I know if I'm live or not. I did have a little issue with setting the dip switches for the ay I wanted it . . . the diagram that came with the switch didn't quite match what I found inside. With a couple minutes of trying different settings - it works just fine.

Works really wellI needed a mute for my DPA 4099 condenser microphone that clips onto my mandolin. So I bought this and it works really well. I originally tested it by running the microphone into the Power Mute and then into Pro Tools via Digi002 to see if there was a 'pop' due too passing phantom power. I did notice a 'pop' so I decided not to chance it live so I run the DPA 4099 into a UA Solo/610 pre (using the phantom on the mic pre before the switch) and into the Power Mute. There is no 'pop' with this configuration. When I have more time at a sound check I will see if I can run it without the preamp and pass phantom through the switch from the house board to see if there is a 'pop'. This is a well built piece of equipment other than the placement of the external power supply input. It's located right above the direct out so it's not convenient when trying to plug or unplug an XLR cable....but really it's no that big of a deal.
