Question about Shure Beta 58A Professional Microphone

2 Answers

Is there a way to open up a Shure Beta 58A?

Is there a way to open up a Shure Beta 58A in the middle? One of the two wires on going to the capsule broke and is now too short to solder back. Can I open the mic or take the capsule out to get more wire or replace it? I'm very good with soldering -- I used to do it for a living.

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.

Davine72,
The capsule can be removed by unscrewing the grill, then you can solder new wires directly from the capluse to the jack.

Where is the mute button on shire beta 58a

I assume you are asking about a wired Beta 58A. The Beta 58A is not offered with a switch. Audio Engineers do not like switches on microphones as the talent could accidentally switch off the microphone.

How to open a shure beta 58 microphone?

To open a wired Shure Beta 58, unscrew the handle at the mid point. A new cartridge from Shure includes the upper part of the handle.

The Beta 58A is different.

Mic was dropped and quit working

you could open the bottom and check the wires are ok, then unscrew the capsule and check those wires are ok.
if you have a scope you could check the capsule.

if none of the above makes any sense then its dealer time, tech time.
These are very hardy mics I remember singers throwing these and dropping them all the time when i was at gigs. It may be it just fell the wrong way, but its worth checking the wires first.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

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

The microfone does make noise when you touch the capsule but there's no captation at all

It sounds like it needs to be repaired. Contact Shure for assistance in getting the mic repaired.

Beta 58 just stoped working

Have you tried using a different cable? Hopefully thats it.But more than likely due to it's age it could be the capsule.That would require replacement by a Shure factory repair shop.Go to Shure's website and check their repair fees.

New cable for my Shure Beta 58A Professional

It could be the wiring in the 1/4" jack in your amp. Check the metal contact plates on the 1/4" jack in your amp and see if they are getting contact to the jack. Sometime they get bent.

If the XLR end of the cable can be serviced, check the ground connection to the cable and see if its good.
