How do I get into my beta 58a mike to re-solder the 2 leads back. The 3 pin plug pulled out when lead was removed.
I have unscrewed the grill and I see the insert inside rubber mounted. It is very tight. I think there may be a cir clip under the head?
I just want to re-solder the 2 leads and put the 3 pin assembly back and get on with it.
Can you please help
The small screw you see near the tail is a left hand thread so to remove the three pin xlr you screw it anti-clockwise (the screw goes down) clockwise the screw comes up back into the hole securing the pin back into the casing.

If you know how to use a soldering iron, the element is easy to switch out. However, it is probably less expensive to send the mic to Shure. That is the cartridge might cost more than the flat fee repair charge that Shure Service charges.
Once you remove the grill, there is a C-Clip that holds the cartridge down into the handle. Use some c-clip pliers to pull the c-clip out of the handle. The c-clip will remain around the post on the cartridge, but that's ok.
The easiest way to find a service agent near you for your microphone is to contact Shure at the following;

Mmmm... The wires and the assembly is broken?
Sounds like you might have a trashed mic.
You can try to find a Shure dealer or a good music store to have them take a look at it.
I would suggest getting a new mic cartridge.
