Question about Shure Beta 58A Professional Microphone

Internal wires separated from connector

I was wondering if you can help since I get no response from Audio Technica. I own an Audio Technica ATM31a condenser microphone. Its internal plastic support which holds the connector of the microphone in place when connected to a XLR lead broke and allowed the connector to rotate freely and by doing so it separated the internal wires. I can reconnect them again but I have no idea which wire goes where. The condenser microphone uses either phantom power or an internal AA battery.
I hope you can help.
Best Regards

I'm trying to figure out what type of cartridge the ATP-2 is which came with my Audio Technica AT-PL120 Turntable. Is it "Moving Magnet" or "Moving Coil" or something else?

These are the specs for your cartridge - it is of the moving magnet variety. Vector-Aligned Dual Magnet design and A-T's exclusive Paratoroidal signal generator. This unique signal-generating system is composed of a unified, laminated coil core wound with a single piece of wire. Internal mechanical and electrical connections are eliminated, minimizing magnetic losses and assuring better signal transfer. PCOCC wire

You might consider sending it in to Audio technica for repair. They're really customer oriented and alot of times they'll repair and or replace for just cost of shipping. Try contacting them directly.

Need an internal wiring diagram (schematic) for an Audio-Technica AT822. I have a broken wire that I must reconnect.

After running a search online through 3 search engines, I cannot find a schematic for that microphone anywhere. Your best bet is to look and see if you can find something missing (a spot that's supposed to have a wire that doesn't). I'm going to have to apologize, but it's all trial and error at this point.

How do I open Audio-technica ATH-911's? One of th...

First of all: This headphones don't have a single srew. So be extremely
carefull as everything is glued !

#1 - Removing the logo plate
This isn't need to reach the wires. Just for cleaning purposes.
Remove de soft ring-pillow from the earing.
Remove the textil thick black ring that is glued by the internal outside gently.
Look for the three black metal small wings that belong to the logo plate and
are inserted to the internal side and are glued and/or bended. Unbend them.
Then pull this wings in order to extract the plate by the outside side the logo plate.

#2: Accessing the speaker and it's wires.
This is a very carefull procedure. A mistake and you'll have scrap instead!
Remove the soft ringed pillow from the earing. In the border that the black
sinthetic leader was inserted, insert a medium screwdriver. Gently swing
the driver up and down in order to separate the plastic disc that supports
the ringed pillow from the outside hat of the earing. Do this in circles for
a couple of times or until you begin to ear the glue lightly cracking. After
this the plstic disk separates from the outside hat and all the electric
wiring and speaker are free to repair.

NOTE: A piece of advice: do NOT use instant glue or cyanide glue to
re-assemble. It would be the last repair!

Need the wiring diagram for a audio-technica

I believe on the 4 pin connector of the pack, pin 1 is shield/ground and pin 2 is low impedance input. One of the other pins is bias voltage and the other is high impedance.

In the UNIT I had, there was a connection diagram someplace in the battery compartment, either on the cover or the case. As I recall it had poor conrast to read and find it so check closely.

Is the audio technica at2020 a sealed unit

No it's not a sealed mic... there are three Philips head screws under the label ring just below the pop screen. You can either peel up the ring and loose the Audio Technica logo and markings or, as I did, simply use a razor blade to cut out around the screw holes.

After opening your mic you can GENTLY peel the foam from the condenser film to boost performance and response but only if you have a very good pop filter.

4pin Locking connecter to cable.

I suggest the obvious... Call Audio Technica to get the pinouts for this locking connector. I am an ex-dealer and I do not have them in my manual. Don't bother with the internet, call customer support.
