I use a DPA clip-on condenser mic. I made a pedal board assembly which holds a phantom power supply (very small and cheap), a 10 band EQ/volume pedal, and an octave pedal. The mic cable runs to the phantom power unit. The output gets an adapter, XLR to 1/4" cable, then to the EQ, the octave pedal, and on to the sound board.

The EQ pedal has no effect on the signal until you step on the switch. When that happens, you get whatever EQ and volume are set. I set it to 2 volume levels for ensemble and solo. I don't mess with the EQ, but I sometimes use it to notch out strange noises generated by the octave pedal.
