Question about Vtech VT-2010 Microphone

Vt 2008 mic

Hi, Guys,
I bought some mics on Ebay as a package deal.
Among them is a V-Tech vt2000 lo z unidirectional mic.
Can you tell me how this mic compares to a Shure sm58?
Is it in a similar league? I've tested them side by side and to my ears they're pretty similar.

Re: vt 2008 mic

The V-Tech mic is actually a clone of the Shure SM-58. There's some discussion about how it is actually made (since V-Tech has no information on their website about their microphone line), but it looks to be made out of aluminum, vs. Shure's Zinc alloy. I believe it will sound the same, it just won't be as rugged as the SM-58.

(I know people who have used an old SM-58 as a hammer to pound stakes for their remote tent into the ground - and it still functioned afterward).

Re: vt 2008 mic

Thanks, Raveler for the reply.
That's what I wanted to hear.
Shure is a hammer,
V-Tech is the nail.
Have a Great,

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.

Low volume from passive mics !! I'm using stage mics (Shure SM-58s) and the signal is barely showing on the meter. I've tried turning up the input volume...I cranked it up so high that I'm getting...

Hi, first of all,you need to troubleshoot your connecting cables, and also check the Mic cable that your using for the Mic (shure SM-58s).

I would advice that if your using the Mic for studio recording,i think to get a good job done, if you can afford it,you go for a condenser and a good soundcard,i think that will do,and also get good cables for connections.

Hope it helped..

Thanks for using fixya....

I cannot hear myself on the microphone shure sm58

What sort of a preamp are u using this needs to be plugged into the lo impedance XLR input (this is a lo output dynamic mic 1.85Mv out)
The XLR should be input pin 2 return (gnd) pin 3.This mic does not NOT use phantom power (48v) if it is a dual input (pin 1 48v) source make sure the phantom power is turned of.
If this is being done then there maybe a problem with the mic.
You can check this by plugging a source in to the input to check that it is working line out from cd player midi or some other source.

MXL 990 doesn't work

Your other preamp does not have phantom power to supply power to the microphone. All condensor mics like this need phantom power. The Audio Buddy provides phantom power, which is why it was shipped with those condensor mics

Many Problems with Samson G-Track or not?

Hi.  I dunno if yur using pc or mac but with a mac yu need to adjust the mic settings on the comp. For the static its probably your set up or as i said in another guys problem, the usb cable given with it is **** so try using another one from a printer or wtv to see if that makes a difference for you. Also if you are recording just through the mic i find that it seems to only work well when the input is on line and not inst/mic. Hope this can be of some help. Its a great piece of kit once you get it working well.. Goodluck

Problems with my MXL 990 (radio)

g'day mate.
The problem you have will relate to the big antennas in your area. Most radio stations pump more than 100,000 watts these days. So it really comes down to the shielding and what's called Radio Frequency Interference rejection of your microphones to keep this out. I would STRONGLY urge you to take the mics back and get a refund,or change them over for something else. They are VERY cheap, there is no real solution to your problem, except for better design... means spend more mullah. If you are looking for a decent low cost condenser mic, I recommend an AKG Perception. I have used AKG for years, and this mic is a great sounding low cost unit.

Hope this helps you. Nothing can be done to improve what you have, they are a cheapo item. Good Luck

Sony ecm 719 doesn't aseem to be working properly

Hi kollydogg

The mic you purchased is a condenser type that requires either a battery(you now have), or a sony power supply. Without it, I would expect it to not do much at all. The specs look ok on it. Good for bootlegging concerts :)
