Can a microphone get damaged if it is recording at very loud volumes?

Is it possible to hook up a microphone to record acoustic guitars or vocals through a boss gt 10, and using the gt-10 as a usb recording interface, without damaging the gt-10 in the process?

not sure what a gt-10 does so i couldnt tell ya.

loud volumes, no, wont hurt a mic, theyre just electrical signals to it.

Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

i don't think so.. especially cheaper mics (aka i'm not sure about expensive condensors or ribbons) but for dynamics, they're used to mic cranked guitar cabs, so that should be fine.. and condensors are used to do cymbals...

Loud volumes don't hurt mics.

You can record through the GT-10 and it doesn't matter what you record.

Dynamic mics can handle anything you'll throw at them volume wise...

Condenser mics, you should be more careful with, although most modern condensers are fine unless you dime a half-stack and put the microphone up against the grill cloth.

Of course in that case it's the vibrations, not the noise. It's physical abuse that hurts mics, so just handle them well and it'll be okay.
