|The short answer is yes, you can use a dynamic mic by removing the microphone and replacing it with a diode. Peeps have done this with old crappy radio shack mics.
What I don't know about is the phantom voltage used with XLR's. I wouldn't worry about the metal mesh. Faraday cage would help eliminate cross modulation from radio frequencies. I would imagine you would want to use a good quality shielded cable for the same reason.
Raudive diode circuits are quite varied from the complex to the incredibly simple.
There are some inexpensive versions available on ebay:
The ones coming from Arizona are made by Matt Nigbur.
Here is a demo video of his diode:
If you want a basic basic basic diode setup for a digital recorder, all you need is a diode and microphone jack. (see pic)
