Is it worth using a valve pre-amp for my condenser mic in a live situation? My mic needs phantom power anyway.

Try the mic with the built-in pres of the mixer and compare the results with your own pre. If you hear a significant improvement do it, otherwise, save your pre for studio use. Just a question, where will you be using the condenser mic?

God no, it's live and no one is going to notice through a PA. Plus, what kind of music are you playing? Chances are that if you're in a band they definitely don't want you using a condenser if it's vocals.

People use an SM58 live for a reason. A LDC would pick up you AND the rest of the band... and maybe even the PA and the Crowd depending on the mic.

I'd expect constant feedback and a broken mic to ensue.

This, particularly the bolded part.

It's really not worth it.
