Question about Crown CM-311 AE Microphone

1 Answer

It's not really a problem but a question on a microphone I would like to buy. I have a CM-311A headset but it's uncomfortable. There's another microphone out there that is similar to it except there is not an adjustment tool by the ear. I've seen it worn by singers like Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, etc. Can you tell me what brand it is and what kind of microphone it is?

There are numerous headset mics. Most feed into a bodypack the singer wears, which can be wired or wireless. It has the batteries required for phantom power, etc.  See what kind of a plug is on your existing mic. Probably a mini-xlr. You should be able to use any mnini-xlr mic with your rig. Go to your music store with your old mic and ask to see and try on other models. If the plugs are the same, the mics should be inter-changeable.

How do I rewire my crown cm311a mic from mic to belt pack?


It looks like a mini XLR connection at the belt pack end, so that's easy. The cable goes to a connector block which looks like it is held together with two screws. Again, that should be fairly straightforward.

The other side of the block is the cable that goes up to the head set and boom mic. This looks a little trickier for a novice just because the mic capsule is small; the cable runs through a narrow diameter tube, and the cable routing involves heatshrink.

At a guess I'd say that the foam windshield will come off. There'll be a grub screw holding the collar in place.

Personally, I'd use a meter on continuity setting, upen up the XLR and connectors block, and test the two signal lines (pins 2 and 3 in the XLR) for a break. Fingers crossed it is in that section. Then replace that cable.

If it is in the boom arm section, and you feel confident dealing with threading the cable and using heat shrink then have a go. If not, take it to a Tech to avoid the risk of wrecking a great mic.

I have a panasonic sa-ak58 sterio system and woud like to pug my mic into it. how do i do so


Hi
You would need to buy a small mixing desk which would plug into the AUX input at the back of your Stereo. Your microphone would plug into the Mixing desk.
Good luck. Michael

I'm useing the SLX1/SLX4 cordless combo with a Crown headworn mic (CM 311/E SH). Sometimes the sound cuts off ! I'm based in NYC. where can I go for repair? Thanks


If the problem is with the Shure wireless, you'll need to send it back to Shure (www.shure.com/service). If the problem is with the Crown headset, you'll need to send that back to Crown.

What kind of outlet do i plug my cm-p35 microphone into?


The cm-p35 is a low-impedance (low-Z) dynamic microphone. It can plug into a mixer or microphone preamp that has XLR input connectors, typically found on professional audio equipment.

If you want to attach it to a computer, you'll need to buy an audio interface for it, either a pro-grade sound card with XLR inputs, or a USB-to-XLR adaptor, like this one at ZZounds.com

Technical specifications needed for an Korg contact microphone CM-100L? Thank you.


The CM-100L Contact Microphone is a perfect compliment to any tuner that offers an audio input jack. The mic can be positioned to get a more sensitive reading, while allowing the tuner to be positioned for easier reading.
The jack is a 1/4" male phone connector.

that is on the official site...

I want to know what brand of microphone to buy


It is the same mic. The singer's sound technicians just removed the mic from the crown headset and put it on a headset custom made to the singers head. This way it holds up more to the dancing and it is less complicated to put on.

Microphone not working. I can hear people, but they can't hear me


Hi!

The plugs that they come with are substandard for regular removal.
(pluging in and out) the cable has no adequate strain relief causing the thin
cables inside to break. you will notice that it will crackle and temporarily come on
as you move the cable around near the plug end or where it joins the microphone.

Some times when people are engaged in conversation they play with the wire inadvertantly!!

i hope this has solved your problem.

take care.

It really depends on where you will be using the microphone and and whether it is just going to be used for fun at home or in a club oor for recording?

Some golden rules for microphone selection.
1) Make sure the microphone is Uni-Directional. This means it will only pick up sound from the direction it points in. You are less likely to get feedback or background intereference.
2) For a vocalist, make sure the mic is a reasonable size. If it is too small and you need to hold it, after a while it becomes fiddly and uncomfortable.
3) When singing always use a foam hood or pop filter with the microphone. This will reduce explosive sounds on the letter "P" etc.
4) Choose a microphone with a wide frequency response but not too much bass which can make vocals sound boomy.
5) Finally, the microphone must have a reasonable dynamic range so that if you suddenly shout it does not distort excessively, but it will also work when you speak or sing softly.
