Question about Shure Beta-98DS Professional Microphone

1 Answer

My shure beta 98 I think took a blow while playing hands drums. Now it will only pick up sounds from tapping the mic, or from blowing into it.There is no sound picked up from acoustic instruments or vocals except for extreme low end frequencies.Is there a way to internally fix the issue and repair it. Or a service that shure provides without the warrentee. Or should I just eat the $250

Please how do i connect a pair of F1 Bose 812 speakers and Subs to a Behringer PMP6000 mixer?

Watch your impedance, when you add speakers the impedance will change. example 8 ohm speaker placed in parallel with another 8 ohm speaker the impedance is 4 ohms, placed in series the it is 16 ohm Me I would place in parallel this mixer should handle 3 ohms

Shure beta 57A ..low recording volume from acoustic piano ...Directly to laptop no mixer used

are you using an interface?
Your level will be always be lower if you are going straight in.
Your interface and mixer will help you get the correct level in to your system before recording and also shaping the sound after the recording.You just need to get more gain up in there

I left my Shure 87a in the car for a 2 week period back in the winter. didn't realize it was there..i notice now it doesn't seem to have the same clear, powerful sound coming out when i use...

The headline has two different mics listed... a Shure 87a and a Beta 98/S... not sure which you really have... Normally leaving the mic in the car should NOT have affeected it, although you haven't told us the environment such as humid or immersed in water, etc. On the chance it may have had condensation I would put it over a hot-air register for a few days to insure there is no residual condensation .. DO NOT place in an oven to try to speed this up. If there is condensation on the diaphram it needs to evaporate and vent slowly. Also you can look for corrosion on the plug contacts.

Can you tell me how to remove the mic head off a shure ut2 beta 58a wireless and is it compatible with any other shure wireless thanks

The Beta 58A head simply unscrews from the handle (just below the grill). It will fit all Shure handheld transmitters.

How can I tell if a Shure Beta 87C is genuine of fake?

Check the packaging.

Its heavier when you hold it.

The shure sticker are printed perfectly on the case and the mic it self.

And definitely they sound better.

I have just been given an old EV 664 dynamic mic. the cartrige inside has gone bad, I think it has been in a shed for many many years and has gotten wet some where along time. I want to either replace...

The first mic I ever purchased was a 664, back in 1970. Still works, but I can tell you first hand...the 664 was designed as a public address microphone and is not typically worth restoring or using as a vocal (singing) mic.

That said, it is a cosmetically interesting mic, and if you are less concerned about cost and more about the looks, then you can retrofit the 664 with Electrovoice's RE510 capsule for less than $200 in parts. Having worked with mics for quite some time, I am not sure why someone would suggest a Shure brand replacement kit as the RE510 is physically closer than anything I've worked with from Shure.
