This is no different from using any other lo-z mic with any other hi-z (amp) input: you need a lo-z to hi-z transformer somewhere between the mic and the amp.

I used to use a rat-tail transformer on the end of my mic cable.  Now I run the mic through a Samson wireless transmitter recommended by Greg Heumann at, and I run a 1/4" line from the Samson to the RP. Greg usually advises his clients to put a transformer on the XLR output from the Samson, but I haven't had any issues with the 1/4" output.
