Most likely cause is tiny copper windings from cartridge to the solder terminals has broken (dropped?). CAREFULLY check for a human hair sized wire leading from the cartridge to the solder terminals that may be broken. Soldering and general repair of these ultra fine wires should be performed by a steady hand and light touch. Once repaired, the capsule (element) itself should read 10-20 ohms when disconnected from the green / yellow wiring....Glen

Sm58 feedback issues


The new SM58's meet the same specifications as older SM58's. If your SM58 is performing differently, there is either something wrong with it, or it is counterfeit.

No sound


The SM58 needs to be connected to a mic input. A guitar amp is expecting a much louder signal then what a mic can put out.

Just got shure sm58, plug it into my starsinger on the tele but sounds is very low compared to the crappy mics? i plugged up a mixer box and can get more sound now but should it work fine with the...


The SM58 uses balanced output. If the starsinger uses a 1/4 inch jack, it is unbalanced input and probbly requires a high impedance rather than the low impedance SM58 mic. You can get an impedance transformer to fix that problem.

Used Shure SM58 has a tinny sound.


It probably needs the cartridge replaced. You can order a new cartridge from Shure or send the mic to Shure for repairs.

No sound from my sm58 mic


The SM58 is a very rugged and reliable microphone and there are not many things to go wrong with it.
Assuming that you have tried using a different cable / amplifier to issolat ethe problem to teh microphone itself the most likely things are.
  1. A wire has come off inside - gently unscrew the top of the mic - lift it off carefully lift because the wires inside are quite short.
  2. A broken capsule - this usually results from dropping the mic on hard surfaces. Replacement capsules can be bought quite cheaply.Just tak careful note of the wiring order before disconnecting the old one.

Shure SM58 not working. Tried on various pieces of equipment using various configurations of cables and not a sound. Took unit apart and all wiring appears to be intact. The mic has been unused for several...


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.

Shure SM58 A singer has joined me with her own SM58 ,i have to turn the volume up much higher on mine ,with a more muffled sound .This is causing a prob .The PA is a Yamaha Stagepas 300


Please get the microphones checked seperately If there is an impedance difference orr if the coil is damaged then this difference of sound is possible.
So just check it out or else replace the mic.

I'm using Audacity with a Shure SM58 mic, and the recording plays back fine when the mic is unplugged, but if it is still plugged in when I press Play, there is no sound and the light on the mic's chord...


I assume you are using the X2u USB adapter. When plugged in, the X2u acts as your sound card for recording and playback. Thus the playback will be on the headphone jack of the X2u. You can select which sound card to use for playback in the Windows Sound Control Panel.

I cannot get any sound from mt Shure SM58 and the green and yellow wires are intact.What di I do?


Check the continuity between pins 2 and 3 of the connector with an ohmmeter. If there is no continuity, the cartridge is bad and will have to be replaced. The fine voice coil wires get damaged and that is fatal for the cartridge.
