Hi, I actually rebuild these mics and upgrade them. I'm an expert in the vintage 55's of all era's and the newer. If you are just looking to go back with the stock element of a 55sh2, or looking to upgrade your 55 vintage or new, with a SM58 a Beta 58, or a 87 Beta, I do all of that. All repaires from Hard mounted XLRs, screens, to polishing the surface back to new, or upgrade kits that you can put in yourself with my pictured instructions. Check out my web page at Mutantmics.com or google search Mutant Mics or conatct me directly at email@example.com

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.
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.

Once you remove the grill, there is a C-Clip that holds the cartridge down into the handle. Use some c-clip pliers to pull the c-clip out of the handle. The c-clip will remain around the post on the cartridge, but that's ok.

The mic does not need a battery. But it does require phantom power. Contact the mixer manufacturer to find out how to turn on phantom power on your mixer.
