OK....does it scratch when the cable going into the mic moves, or when the cable going into the connector @ the beltpack? Either way, Shure has an exceptional service policy on all of their mics. They have very reasonable prices for bringing their mics back to factory spec. If you are a touring musician who needs it ASAP, they are good at expediting the process. I always advise clients who use wireless mics to put a fresh Duracell battery in before EVERY performance. I am not an endorsee of that brand, but from experience, I am an endorser of it. A weak battery will cause static/scratches/drop outs. Call 800.516.2525(service line) or go to Unless you are REALLY good at precise soldering, this is not a DIY project.Good Luck

    have you tried just firing up the receiver and belt pack with no mic plugged into the belt-pack? is the scratch better or the same? how about just the receiver? with the belt-pack off? isolate whats on when the problem occurs. also, is this a frequency agile system? let's make sure where the problem is and go from there.

Used Shure SM58 has a tinny sound.

It probably needs the cartridge replaced. You can order a new cartridge from Shure or send the mic to Shure for repairs.

sm58%20with%20sticker.jpgManila, Philippines -- The Shure SM58 unidirectional (cardioid) dynamic vocalmicrophone is designed for professional vocal use in live performance, sound reinforcement, and studio recording. It has a tailored vocal response for a sound which is a world standard for singing or speech. A highly effective, built-inspherical filter minimizes wind and breath "pop" noise. 

A cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise. Rugged construction, a proven shock-mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently, outdoors or indoors. 

The fake ones don't even come close.

To know which is authentic, look for the holographic stiker, or ask a Shure sales representative at any official dealers or Audiophile branch.

SCM810 audio input sound garbled

It sounds like the pots have become dirty or bad. I believe these are sealed pots, so you might need to replace them. It's probably easiest to send the mixer to Shure to have them replace the pots.
