Question about Samson H32 / Q Professional Microphone

1 Answer

I own a Samson Synth 32 wireless microphone system. Model numbers Receiver (bass station) R32M and transmitter (hand held microphone) H32M. I have narrowed down the problem to the microphone since I own two of these identical systems with microphones. I am getting a signal to the receiver including when I place the microphone on mute... but no sound. When the sound is turned up on the mixing board... I do get a slight "Pop" when I power off the microphone. What would it take to repair and/or is there a place I can purchase parts or a new/used microphone to go with the system. I also am curious to find out if there are wireless microphones that would work with the system that may not be the "Samson" exact model?

    Thanks SilverDragon!

    No luck on the contacts portion and exchanging batteries. I'm not as handy going any farther which would require taking parts of the microphone apart that I am not comfortable doing nor do I have the tools to do so. I have the ability to solder but I'm really not the best nor do I have the best equipment for that.

    I guess my next question would be since it seems that I have exhausted all of the basic or easy trouble shooting ideas... is there a place to purchase this type of microphone transmitter - Samson H32M even though it is discontinued. I tried my luck on e-bay and some other site with no luck... last time it appeared on e-bay was in 2009.

Hi, Radio Mic's can be great tools, but are devils for going faulty. They generally use an Electret Mic, this Mic requires Power to make it go. (Many problem are caused by Bad batteries, so these must be checked, and ideally swapped for known good ones. Also Check the battery connector too, it must be intact and clean and shinny, give it a rough up with sandpaper if unsure. Another point of failure is the On/Off switch, the battery side connection often comes off, and needs to be re-soldered) Anyway the signal from the electret. this then drives the FM transmitter, and the received signal is decoded, and you can hear it.
Now, you say that there is a "pop" when it is switched ON, well this at least gives us some hope, It is very ODD that BOTH of them are "Faulty" ? I would tend to look elsewhere? IF after you have checked out all the points I raised above, are attended to. and the Mic's check out OK. Maybe they have drifted off frequency, often there are trimmers inside the receiver to adjust..
Now these units can be obtained on eBay and the like very inexpensively indeed. As for repair again, eBay is the best.
If you can tune the transmitter, or know the frequency to tune the transmitter to. Now, then what I have done in the past is obtained a FM Transmitter Mic, kitset, made the kitset up, and then ripped the "Old" electronics out of the :"Old" mic housing and shoehorning in the new working kitset. tuned into the Receiver.
Always get a pair working standalone first, then after you get the Mic working out through the receiver, then, and only then use the receiver with "Other" things.

    I had a customer with the same problem a couple of years ago. I ended up ordering a new mic for the system, and when it arrived, they decided they didn't want it. If you have any interest, I still have it. It cost me almost a hundred dollars from Samson. I'd be happy to get forty back on the deal if you still need a replacement. My email is Thanks!

Is sm58 wireless mic compatible t4a receiver-shure

The "SM58" is just the cartridge on the top. It would depend on the model of handheld transmitter. The model number is on a sticker in the battery compartment.

I cant get the receiver open to put the batteries in to the Digital Reference DR-2606

Your receiver runs on an external power adapter. I think you meant the hand held transmitter.
Hold the top metal mesh dome of the Mic and twist the lower casing anti clock wise. The Tubular cover will come off and you will see a battery compartment into which you can insert 2 AA cells.

Have a Shure SLX Wireless System. The only way the microphone SLX1 or SLX2 is if they are right up to your mouth. If you put the lapel mic on a persons tie you can't hear them. The transmitter is set to...

The Shure SLX2 hand-held microphone has similar performance characteristics to the much-loved (cabled) Shure SM58 vocal microphone. It has a 'cardoid pick-up pattern' intended for close work - being spoken / sung straight into the top of the capsule at no more than about 8 inches from the mouth of the user- to minimise feedback and extraneous noise. If you double the distance between the mouth and microphone the sound level will drop four-fold so distance really matters.
The SLX1 lapel/ lavalier is a semi 'omni-directiona'l pick up pattern microphone, which should work satisfactorily up to 12 inches from the speakers mouth, but closer is better. Always try to get your users to hang it about 6 inches below their chin, at most, and preferably with the top of the microphone capsule pointed upwards towards the mouth.
Here are a few other things for you to try:
  1. There is a volume (gain) knob on the back panel of the SLX receiver unit. Try turning this up to maximum (needs a small screwdriver)
  2. Make sure that both aerials on the receiver are fully extended at different angles to each other and in a clear 'line-of'sight' with the transmitter pack, with no large bits of metal in between which could block the signal. Ideally the receiver should not be more than 25metres from the transmitter. If distance is a problem locate the receiver near to the transmitter and run a balanced (xlr) cable to your mixer/ amplifier.
  3. The angle that the receiver aerials are at should be broadly similar to the angle that the transmitter antenna is at to optimise signal reception.
  4. Make sure the receiver is not located too close to other electrical equipment which may be interfering with the signal (especially voltage transformers, CD or DVD players and hearing loop induction amplifiers which have a strong magnetic field)
  5. Always use good quality batteries - Duracell Ultra or equivalent ( do not use rechargeable batteries as they seldom achieve optimum voltage)
  6. Check that the antenna is tightly screwed into the SLX1 transmitter pack and not damaged.
  7. The SLX2 hand-held microphone has an adjustable level switch inside the body - unscrew the top of the microphone to access it - switch to maximum.
  8. Another possible cause could be an impedance mis-match between the SLX receiver and your amplifier or mixer. There are two outputs on the rear panel of the receiver. One is an XLR (large 3 pin socket) this is LOW impedance and needs connecting to a low impedance input on your mixer/amplifier. You should normally be using this output even if your amplifier has a jack-socket input (use a proper balanced XLR to 6mm trs jack cable rather than a adapter plug). The other output on the receiver unit is a 6mm HIGH impedance, unbalanced, standard jack socket (labelled 'line in'). This would normally be to connect to a guitar amplifier which has a high impedance 'line level' input socket. If you are using this output you may need to use a pre-amplifier to get a big enough signal for a microphone.

You need power from the transmitter to power this mic. See your mics specs to determine if it needs "Phantom Power"
Perhaps the transmitter doesn't supply power. Condenser mics may not work. Stay with the dynamic type. IMHO

The AP1B was designed for the Bass as it gave a lower end signal responce the unit was designed to be intergrated into the effects pedal set up or into the bass itself .. the main difference is in the signal sent has a wider frequency on the bottom now discontinued. according to their site..

Samson CR77 receiver and AF1 transmitter. The CR77 receiver swaps antennas during reception even at close range and there is an audible 'pop' when it swaps.

There are two receivers and are used as "diversity" reception. That is, the strongest signal receiver output is used. As you move around, due to cancellation and reflections it is common for the diversity system to swap receivers. This is normal... HOWEVER there should not be a poplwhen it does this. You might experiment with the squelch level to improve performance. There is a possibilty there is a defect in your unit and repair would be beyond the capabilty and equipment you would have to troubleshoot the problem.

ONE thing is make sure the audio levels are turn up so the level is "not down in the noise" or in other words you have a good signal-to-noise ratio.
