condenser mic noob confusion...

I just bought a Studio Projects B1 Condenser Mic, recieved yesterday, go to plug it into my old tascam porta02 tape 4 track to mess around with it... and nothing.

The manual says it needs 45v phantom power? How do I get this thing to work and how is this different from a regular mic (such as a shure sm57).

yeah you need a mic preamp or a mixer that supplies phantom power. without phantom power your mic won't work. it's different from what you call a regular mic (ie a dynamic mic) in that it needs phantom power which dynamic mics don't. it's called phantom power cos it's invisible to dynamic mics.
