You should consider a microphone with more power to get the volume you need. I can personally recommend the CAD C195 Cardoid Condensor microphone. It has great output. The only downsidefor most people is that they don't have phantom power. This is what gives the mic its boost. In order to get the most out of any micrphone, you need to have a preamp, an equilizer, and an output. The output is your PA system that drumbanger mentioned. 

But since you are using a Peavey, here is my strong recommendation. Get a mini preamp, and hook it up to your Peavey. You can use a Behringer 2mic mixing board for your preamp. It's small, and it can sit right on top of the Peavey. 

XENYX 1002

CAD C195

The reason why I suggest the two-mic XENYX 802 and not the 1 channel 502, is that the 1 channel doesn't have phantom power.

In order to connect the XENYX to your Peavey, this is all you need. You can get one at radio shack for pretty cheap.

I get ALOT of feed back, why? I can't use it like that. I've talk with the a Tech and he said I needed to stand further away from the amp, which I am.


This sounds like your gain is too high. Adjust it down. Every mic has different gain settings so you can't just blanket this with the other one works fine. Is this wired or wireless?

Unscrew the cartridge from the top. Slide a screw driver down inside to pop off the switch cover. Remove the large "c" clip to remove the circuit board.

The SM58 needs to be connected to a mic input. A guitar amp is expecting a much louder signal then what a mic can put out.

Shure SM58 A singer has joined me with her own SM58 ,i have to turn the volume up much higher on mine ,with a more muffled sound .This is causing a prob .The PA is a Yamaha Stagepas 300


Please get the microphones checked seperately If there is an impedance difference orr if the coil is damaged then this difference of sound is possible.
So just check it out or else replace the mic.

I have two Shure sm58 mics that simply will not work...I do not know where to begin. How should I trouble shot?


If these are wired SM58 mics, they will probably need to be sent to Shure for repairs. The cost to repair is less than purchasing a new one, and they will usually just send you a new mic.

Shure sm58 just started outputting very low volume. It has been working fine with our system for years. Tried other sm58 mics on the same mic cable with same system setup and no troubles. There is still...


Check your wire connections inside the mic where the xlr cable connects to the mic. Hopefully your mic has never been dropped as this will damage it. The sm58 is pretty much indestructible, so check your cabling that you use, try a different channel.
