Hi matt

The capsule can be released from its mounts for replacement by popping back the clips that retain it. I need to take apart - 9f4b878.jpg
Is this what you were intending to do.

How do I take apart a beta52a?

Unscrew the grill and look for a plastic piece that holds the capsule in place. This plastic piece also can be unscrewed and will allow you to reach the PC board inside. Check for broken wiring (most common problem) but low output usually indicates a damaged mic capsule that must be replaced.

Audio Technica PRO-35: need wiring diagram for mic end

If you feel the shield goes to the middle, try red on one terminal and white on the other. If not, reverse it.

If it's labeled on the circuit 1, pin 2, pin 3, then pin 1 is usually ground, pin 2 is hot (red), and pin 3 is cold.

I dropped it.silly me!not working.also i was using as a vocal mic-does that matter?

If its really broken then you will need some help by a service engineer or perhaps someone with good diy mic know how can help .. On the vocal question,small and large condensers can be used but at the typical close miking distance of voice a pop shield needs to be used..This will ensure pops[ horrid bbooobbwww!! type noises from breath/wind hitting the capsule..proper name is plosives ] also the pop shoild will protect the capsule from spit etc etc.. You can make a pop shield [ a good one ] with tights and a coat DIY pop shield or something..or buy one.. Oh and small diaphram condensers are rarely used for vocals but are capable of good results depending on source/room/placement etc.. Hope you get the mic working a garantee ???

Trying to open my Shure sm58 beta

About half way up the body you will see a seam. The body with the cartridge and wind screen separates from the bottom half of the body at that juncture. You have to unscrew one from the other. You will see wires that have to be unsoldered. Make note of where they were soldered and do the same thing for both the mike with the dead cartridge and the mike with the good cartridge. Swap straight across and you're done. Hope this helps.

Sm58 beta is totally dead

Hi djmalatesta

One could go all superstitious and suggest that it was just bad luck!! It is unusual for one of these industry standard mics to just stop. The most likely cause is the capsule has gone open circuit. you could check this with the 1k range on a multimeter by unscrewing the wind shield and measuring across the . connections to the capsule. If the capsule measures ok, it may be the wiring to the XLR socket at the base of the mic, the switch getting to there. Either way, it can be fixed. Can you meter out the capsule and report back to me what you found?

Shure Beta 58A wireless mic

Mmmm... The wires and the assembly is broken?
Sounds like you might have a trashed mic.
You can try to find a Shure dealer or a good music store to have them take a look at it.
I would suggest getting a new mic cartridge.
If you're interested in selling it, contact me.

Independent audio input device

Hey old byke. The microphone that you supplied the spec for is a condenser mic. By using a dynamic mic(often 600 ohms) will help with wind noise and give you better results. I would tuck it up away anywhere that there is some shielding from the wind. A foam wind filter over it would help also.

What you ride mate... in the middle of a rebuild on my XS650 at the moment.gotta love the old bikes.
