Just got shure sm58, plug it into my starsinger on the tele but sounds is very low compared to the crappy mics? i plugged up a mixer box and can get more sound now but should it work fine with the...


The SM58 uses balanced output. If the starsinger uses a 1/4 inch jack, it is unbalanced input and probbly requires a high impedance rather than the low impedance SM58 mic. You can get an impedance transformer to fix that problem.

My sm58 has a low level buzz or hum. how should I proceed to diagnose and repair. I am assuming a loose wire or a frayed wire grounding out.


This could be any of several things. IF the audio output of the mic is at a normal level then the first thing to check is the mic cable. I have several things to discuss so read all of this and then test.

First, I found six BRAND NEW XLR cables were wired wrong... the vendor had 13000 of them in stock and was going to have to check them all. The cables appear to work, but had the shield and one signal wire in the wrong place so the line was NOT a twisted pair balanced as required, but instead a plain coax. I had to repair these at a venue when I discovered the problem. Please google the correct XLR configuration. The pin numbering is NOT what one would expect. You cables (open the ends and look) should have the shield tied to pin 1 which is one of the side pins. Mine they had the shield on the middle pin or apex of the triangle.

Second, there are COUNTERFEIT Shure SM58's being sold. Read about that at google... If you unscrew the screen and find a label on the side of the element, the mic is a fake... Now there are two qualities of fakes... some perform ABOUT as good as the genuine, and others don't even have the balancing transformer.

If the hum is only there while handling the mic, the ground to the shell is not connected... this is mainly a mechanical connection. You can extract the XLR male plug from the bottom of the mic by removing the side screw and gently pull out by grabbing one of the pins. Also you can verify the wire colors as the fakes use the wrong color wires.

Noise problems are my specialty so if you need further help send a comment to me.

I have two Shure sm58 mics that simply will not work...I do not know where to begin. How should I trouble shot?


If these are wired SM58 mics, they will probably need to be sent to Shure for repairs. The cost to repair is less than purchasing a new one, and they will usually just send you a new mic.

Shure sm58 just started outputting very low volume. It has been working fine with our system for years. Tried other sm58 mics on the same mic cable with same system setup and no troubles. There is still...


Check your wire connections inside the mic where the xlr cable connects to the mic. Hopefully your mic has never been dropped as this will damage it. The sm58 is pretty much indestructible, so check your cabling that you use, try a different channel.

Small volatage at mic and pin 2 cable becomes open


If you don't have continuity of around 300 ohms or so between pins 2 and 3 there is either broken wiring within or the dynamic mic module is bad and requires replacement.

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.
