Shure 58 when plug it has no sound


First i would check the cable. If cable seems good I would buy some contact cleaner and try cleaning the xlr pins on the bottom of the mic. Last i would take the set screw out of the side of the mic and carefully remove the xlr assembly. There are 2 wires connected to that and not a whole lot of slack so be careful. Basically make sure they are still soldered on.

Hi i need to know the color code to assemble a new 3 prong stereo 1/4 inch jack for a shure sm 58 microphone. i need to know the order and color to reassemble the mic cable to a new 1/4 inch guitar type...


Unfortunately, different cables use different colors of wires. Thus, you'll have to see what colors are connect to both ends of the cables. Here is the wiring:

XLR -> 1/4 inch
Pin 1 -> Sleeve
Pin 2 -> Tip
Pin 3 -> Sleeve

Wires in the microphone at the point where you connect to the lead have come appart and i need to solder them back on, Black, red and white wires. Which in which order do i solder them onto the connecter...


There are many standards of microphone connectivity with 3 pin XLR (cannon) style plugs. It depends on where in the world you are as to the favoured standard,
Your microphone usesthe following::

Pin
1 ground (white) 2 +ve or hot (red) 3 -ve or return (black)

Another way to work out what wires connect to what, is to remove the cover of one of your XLR-XLR microphone cables exposing the connections it favours, plug the connector into the mics scoket , and use the connections to the cable guide you in resoldering the connections back on.
The same connections can be veiwed in the user manual here

Jack plug broken off


Buy a $4.00 1/8" jack replacement from Radio Shack - part # 274-0869, which has small screw connectors that don't need soldering.
Strip about 1" of the braided insulation at the old jack end, which will expose 4 very small wires: Blue, Green, Red, Copper.

Attach the Green & Copper wires to the tallest pin on the replacement jack.

Attach the Red to the shortest pin, and the Blue to the medium pin.

Remember to slide the jack cover onto the headphone cord before attaching any wires!

This works great, I just did it.

Don't know the conections of blue or red


If we're talking about the microphone cable wiring on a low impedance mic remember this. Cheap mic cables with XLR's on both ends often have no standard color code to follow. True pin 1 is ALWAYS ground (shield wire) but the other two wires could be any color of the rainbow. Look for small numbers beside each pin of the XLR connector and make sure that pin two on one end of your cable, is also pin two on the other end as well....etc. Special note: The XLR connectors set screws have reversed threads and it's the same for the XLR male plug in the bottom of the microphone as well.....Glen

Shure beta 58


Benimur, you are correct, except that the Beta 58 is a condenser mic that required phantom power. In that case all 3 lines are used. Included below are the connections.

New cable for my Shure Beta 58A Professional


It could be the wiring in the 1/4" jack in your amp. Check the metal contact plates on the 1/4" jack in your amp and see if they are getting contact to the jack. Sometime they get bent.

If the XLR end of the cable can be serviced, check the ground connection to the cable and see if its good.
