The 515SBG does not come with a connector. They come from the factory as bare wire. Thus, every installation will be custom.

Unscrew the top portion with your hands to expose the capsule. The connector at the bottom is unscrewed with either a small phillips or slot screwdriver.

Short in wire at plug,cant take plug apart

The mic will disconnect from the transmitter. Simply push the black button and pull outward. Then, the black part of the connector unscrews from the silver part of the connector in order to get at the guts of the connector.

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.

How do I take apart a beta52a?

Unscrew the grill and look for a plastic piece that holds the capsule in place. This plastic piece also can be unscrewed and will allow you to reach the PC board inside. Check for broken wiring (most common problem) but low output usually indicates a damaged mic capsule that must be replaced.

Have a beta 57a it wont work ? nothing

I'm assuming that you have tried the obvious stuff like using a different cable and a different amplifier?
The Shure beta 57a is a very robust and reliable dynamic microphone and there is very little to go wrong with it apart from
  1. A wire broken off inside
  2. A broken capsule - can be caused by dropping it
You can inspect for broken wires by very gently unscrewing the microphone head and peering inside - however the wiring is quite short so be careful not to pull any wires off in the process.
A broken capsule can be replaced - contact your local dealer for parts.

I want to take my kms32 apart

Look near the XLR connector. There is an outer ring with two dots. The dots allow for a special tool to unscrew that ring.

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.

It really depends on where you will be using the microphone and and whether it is just going to be used for fun at home or in a club oor for recording?

Some golden rules for microphone selection.
1) Make sure the microphone is Uni-Directional. This means it will only pick up sound from the direction it points in. You are less likely to get feedback or background intereference.
2) For a vocalist, make sure the mic is a reasonable size. If it is too small and you need to hold it, after a while it becomes fiddly and uncomfortable.
3) When singing always use a foam hood or pop filter with the microphone. This will reduce explosive sounds on the letter "P" etc.
4) Choose a microphone with a wide frequency response but not too much bass which can make vocals sound boomy.
5) Finally, the microphone must have a reasonable dynamic range so that if you suddenly shout it does not distort excessively, but it will also work when you speak or sing softly.
