SOURCE: I have a Shure Beta 87a very weak output signal

Possible cause...microphone dropped on the ground.

Or possibly the capsule is fried from too much spit getting to it thru the windscreen.

Or possibly a short in one of the 3 pins/wires located in the housing where the xlr connects.

SOURCE: we have 3 shure ulx2 beta 87a mics and they shut off after 2 bars

That is quite odd. The ULX series should get about 8 hours of battery life. It is possible that you got a bad batch of batteries. I have seen whole cases that are bad. Trying getting another brand of battery from a different store to see if you still get the same problem. If you still have the same problem, return it to Shure for repair.

SOURCE: Is my new Shure Beta 87A microphone a fake

Unfortunately, there are many types of counterfeits out there. So, differences that you see posted online might not apply to all counterfeits.That is, various factories in China produce the counterfeits differently. The best thing to do is to completely avoid unreliable sources, such as eBay and Craigslist. Be extremely suspicious of any products on the internet.

Can you tell me how to remove the mic head off a shure ut2 beta 58a wireless and is it compatible with any other shure wireless thanks

The Beta 58A head simply unscrews from the handle (just below the grill). It will fit all Shure handheld transmitters.

What do I need to provide phantom power to Shure Beta 87A microphone? All I have is a fender acoustasonic combo amp...

You will need a Shure PS1A phantom power supply if you want to use the manufacturers recommended part although any phantom power supply that puts out 11 to 52 volts D.C. positive at both pins 2 and 3 with a current drain of 1 to 1.2ma should work. Behringer makes good affordable ones. Check out this link: Hope this helps.

Beta 52 not working, need wiring solution

Normally the the black wire is connected to pin 1, the white wire is connected to pin 3 and the red is connected to pin 2. Sometimes the wires on pin 2 and 3 are reversed so try it both ways.

Access switches

I assume you have a wireless mic. Disassembly is dependent on the model of the wireless. However, typically, you would pop off the switches and then remove the C ring that is under the cartridge.

Hi matt

The capsule can be released from its mounts for replacement by popping back the clips that retain it. 9f4b878.jpg
