Help with AKG shock mount H-100 parts


I just received an AKG H-100 shock mount microphone holder for a AKG microphone C3000B.

My question is about the locking mechanism on the H-100.
The part that actually screws onto the mic stand. Well my problem is that it is disassembled. There are several pieces that have to line up i.e, washers, spacers, etc. I have fiddled with it and can't seem to figure out the right combo to get this to work. Are there a photo of how the pieces fit together? This would be helpful.

Thank you,

Hi, I'm trying to fit the polar pattern converter to my C1000S mic. I've removed the wire mesh part to reveal the shock mount and capsule but there seems to be a black plastic bit of a different shape...

Alan, the C1000s comes with 2 filters, and it sounds like one of them is already on the capsule. Yes you can remove the one already on. I find by gently twisting and pulling it comes off easily. The capsule is rubber mounted so it can take a little bit of pressure.

Need mic holder

The Peavey studio pro shock mount for that mic is $50.00. Go to a guitar center and they may have what you are looking for if you don't want the shock mount holder. hope this helps.

Buy the Caig Labs De-Oxit kit and clean up/treat the XLR connections on the mic itself.

I have a slight hum in this mic. have swapped cables, mics, et. It definately comes from this mic this is the original C3000 (black) not the B model.

Try the mike on another PA. Sometimes power phantom do weird things with electrical installations hum on the line. Let say commercial fridge.

I have an AKG C3000B microphone. It got very quiet.

How to repair a C3000B with low output.

I had the same problem, and was able to repair it myself. i've seen several other posts with the same description, and if you can use a soldering iron, you're golden. I just now repaired mine, and it took less than 10 minutes. One of the leads going from the PCB board to the capsule was broken loose at the solder joint. Mine has been dropped, so no surprise. Somehow, if you boost the signal enough, you still get sound, where I would have expected silence.

You need a star bit set (I have a little mult-mini screwdriver set that has them stored in the handle from home depot.) There are two silver screws in the bottom lip. Remove these and the whole screen housing slides off. Even better, the capsule assembly slides out too. There are two prongs that plug into a harness when inserted.

There are two black wires from said prongs to capsule leads. See if one is loose. If so, solder that ***** back on and its as good as new, and hot signal.

You also need small plyers, someting to strip the small. I know this is a late post, but maybe it will elp somone. Good luck.

AKG Perception 100 not working, at all

The problem is that your amp probably doesn't have phantom power. This mic requires phantom power to be supplied to it via the XLR connector. Most mixers and mic pres have that feature, but most guitar amps do not, I believe. Hope that helps...
