Hello,

unfortunately, the answer is "NO". You cannot connect a regular mic to a condenser mic.

If you need a condenser mic, maybe you should just go for a Shure Condenser Microphone.

Take care.

I got a cable to hook my MXL 990 condenser microphone to my computer and i get no sound. it wont record!!!!!!!!! its a 1/4 male to #-pin XLR female cable


Professional condensor type mikes require a phantom power source to work. That will be a balanced (read XLR) connection from source to preamp and the preamp must be capable of supplying the power. These units cannot be used in an unbalanced circuit (like 1/4" or computer mini-pin). Your best bet for the setup would be to get an external power supply box that can also convert the signal from balanced to unbalanced. That would be what the mike plugs into and then that plugs into the computer. You're probably looking at about 50-100 for even a cheap one that will work well. Companies like Sweetwater and B&H should be able to steer you toward a decent basic unit. If you happen to have a mixer (which is why you bought the good mike) then it may have phantom power for some of its mike inputs.

Modify frequency on a T4A shure reciever


It is not an easy task. First, the crystal needs to be replaced, and possible 6-8 other components that surround the crystal. Then, the rest of the circuitry needs to be retuned for it to operate correctly.

There is a place in Chicago called Delta Audio (773-764-3634) that has the equipment to do this.

Modify frequency on a T4A shure reciever


Hi,

The T-4 has fixed frequencies, the only way that maybe could work is to send it to your distribution centre.

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.

Shure SM57 - 3 wires:blue, red, black. Which color goes to which pin?


You need a multimeter to check this.
The black wire is customarily ground and should go to the pin that measures a dead short to the metallic case of the mike. The red and blue wires are connected to the secondary of a balanced transformer and can be interchanged with no problem.
You can get a line drawing of the mike connector correctly identified in the user guide and that can be downloaded here:

I have a shure ulx2-j1 transmitter the two wires came loose from the body when the head was taken off how do i take it apart to resolder the wires back


You will need to obtain a wiring diagram from the Shure site. Try here:http://www.shure.com/ProAudio/TechLibrary/index.htm The cartridge body of the mike screws on to the main body. The XLR jack can be removed by turning the flat headed screw clockwise through the access hole on the side of the mike at the bottom of the body. The windscreen also screws off the cartridge body on the mike but won't help you to access the wiring. Unless it is the wiring from the cartridge to the body or the wiring from the body to the jack you are better off having it professionally serviced.

SHure SM57 mcorphone not working -wires disconnected


The wire coming from the switch if it has one will go to pin 2 as it is hot(+ve). Pin 3 is cold (-ve) and pin 1 is gound/shield which will make contact when the XLR connector is mounted back in the mike secured with the set screw. There should be a small hole in the side of the base of the mike that the set screw lines up with. Usind the correct size of flat bladed screw driver, back this screw out counter clockwise to secure the connector. If that is wrong, get back to me and i will hunt up my Shure wiring diagrams. If pin 2 and 3 are backwards the mike will be out of phase. Hope this helps.
