Unfortunately, there are many counterfeit Shure microphones out there. Each of the counterfeit manufacturers makes the fakes slightly different. Thus, there is no one thing to look for. The best thing to do is to purchase the mic from an authorized Shure dealer. Then, you can trust that it will be genuine.A balance cable has three wires (such as XLR connectors), and unbalance cable uses just two wires (such as a two conductor 1/4" connector.

I hear a white noise when I connect microphone with mixer (Behringer DX2000)


You posted this in questions about the Shure PG42 mic. That mic comes in two versions. There's the USB version which connects direct to a PC. Then there's the standard version which is used with a mixer. I presume you have the standard version as the Behringer doesn't have inputs for USB mics.

The standard version is a condenser mic. It needs power. The power is supplied by the mixer. It is known as phantom power because it travels up the mic cable from the mixer to the mic.

  • Make sure your mixer has phantom power switched on.
  • Use the correct mic cable: Either a 3 pin XLR to 3 pin XLR, or a 3 pin XLR to 3-pole jack (TRS). The leadis a balanced mic cable

  • Check the setting on the mic for attenuation. 0dB is no reduction in signal level. 20dB is a large reduction

  • Look at the Behringer's settings. Make sure you know what each control does and how it affects the sound. Pay particular attention to the effects send and return (FX SND RTN)
Most times there's an issue with no sound from a mic, it's usually down to a poor quality or broken cable; or no power; or the settings on the mixer.

Check the cables. If one lead of an XLR-XLR cable is shorted to ground, 6 DB gain is lost. You haven't really supplied enough information regarding cables and model of the manual mixer for us to help much. Do check that ALL of your audio interconnections are BALANCED lines either XLR to XLR or TRS cables. Grounding one side of a balanced line reduces gain 6 DB. Try swapping mic cables and channels to test where the problem is in the system.

Where do you connect the 1/4 inch connector? At the same device (karaoke)?
Also check and report if the 1/4 inch connector is "mono" or "stereo"

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

New Shure PG4. RF and audio fm mic OK to PG4 but can't get mic to work with Peavy 680E. Tried different inputs, cables. Other wireless unts works OK. Wonder if pinout is wrong. Using balanced in/out.


Sounds like a complicated issue. Many things could cause this symptom. Try calling Shure at 800-516-525 to see if they can help troubleshoot.

The SM58 is a dynamic mic. It's actually a very simple device. Thus, it doesn't "degrade". If an SM58 fails, it usually fails catastrophically. Now, the problem for is that you don't know if the failure is in the handle (which includes a transformer) or the cartridge).

You can order a replacement cartridge from Shure and solder it in place, but might be better for you to just send the mic to Shure. I believe they will just replace the mic with a new one for their service fee.

My mic output is very weak. Music comes out great. I have to set the levels all the way up to get any mic sound and usually there is a lot of clipping. You need to almost scream to get any sound with a...


Thiis amp has plenty of gain for mics. Make sure your mic has a good XLR to XLR cable (balanced) and connects to the XLR input connectors. If you have 1/4 inch jack cables that aren't TRS balanced on the mics, get rid of them and get XLR's.

Then push the PFL button down (LED will light red) for a single channel with a mic and adjust the trim (top knob for the channel) so that the level peaks without clipping on the main LED display when highest input to the mic is being generated. You should not get clipping then during operation.

After that you use the slider tio adjust the level for the mic. The MAIN slider should be at least up around -10 to zero during operation. If your main slider is way down, then you haven't balanced your channels properly. Do the same for each channel as the instructions for the mic above. If the gains of the other inputs are too high and the MAIN slider too low, this is what is causing your problem.

Typically the trims for mics like Shure 58 are about 3 o'clock.

High level guitars may have trims anywhere from 9 to 3 o'clock.

Ideally you will want your channel sliders to be between -10 and zero.

Using the Shure AMS22 with a 7V stable power source into a reg


These are a condenser mic which requires a very high impedance FET amplifier right near the condenser part. Most wired condenser mics use Phantom powering of the internal amplifier AND balanced line driver.

I would NOT recommend you try modify this unit for wired operation.

Incidently Phantom powering is usually at least 9 volts.
