Question about Shure MX412D / C Professional Microphone

1 Answer

No sound from a Shure MX412D/C


So I'm at a clients office (auction house) and we recently setup a new auction room for them. We have a Bogen 35 amp and we purchased them a new mic (Shure MX412D/C) The mic is very nice but will not work. If I hook up the old mic also a Shure (570S) the setup works fine. I just cant seem to get the new mic to work. I have test it with a Shure MX418D/C and get the same result... no sound. Im I missing something?

Please help me out.
Thank you

Sounds to me like you may be missing a phantom power supply. The 570S is a Dynamic mic. The MX412d/c is a Cardioid and requires a 11-52v supply over pins 2 & 3 in the mic cable. Phantom power is a feature of most professional mixing consoles(usually 48v). If you do not have a phantom power supply on your system- then you can purchase single battery powered units to insert in the link between sound console and Mic. For example: AKG B-18
Hope this helps.

I have a client who wants to put hardwired headsets into house sound breakout rooms. Can I use a Shure PG30TQG or a WH20TQG and convert it to hardwire with a MX1BP

Bring a dynamic mic, the WH20 just needs a new connector put on it. The PG30 would need the MX1BP or the RK100PK with a phantom power supply.

Microphone feedback

Yes, it could. With age it may become less directional. It probably sounds okay but just doesn't discriminate against sounds from the rear as well. Shure will put in a new element for not too much money.

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
