Knowing that these mics must be phantom powered by whatever device they are used with, will this cause complications if I'm using an American condenser with a UK device?
phantom comes from your interface. That should be powered by your mains. If that works in UK then your only worry is whether the 48v phantom out is in metric units or american voltage units.
condensors ahve some tolerance for voltage differences so you should be okay whether they measured it in UK or american units.
i would look at thomann.de (?) or similar to compare prices.
I would not use the bay. If you did isnt there a euro version that could work better for you ?
