I keep seeing 'Phantom power' on several different pedals, and I have no clue what it means. My best guess is that it just runs off the power given to it by whatever it's plugged into (Amp, mixer, etc..) So, what exactly is 'Phantom Power'?

Phantom power is a method that sends a DC electrical voltage through microphone cables. It is best known as a common power source for condenser microphones, though many active DI boxes also use it.

Phantom power supplies are often built into mixing desks, microphone preamplifiers and similar equipment. In addition to powering the circuitry of a microphone, in traditional condenser microphones the phantom powering directly or indirectly supplies the voltage used for polarizing the microphone's transducer element
