Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Dropped the mic.

I recently bought a used Shure wireless system. I accidently dropped my wireless SM58 microphone at practice (it dropped from maybe three feet up onto carpet) and now it isn't working. When I turn on the transmitter, it "pops" as usual and the receiver shows a signal as I switch it on. However, there's no longer a signal being picked up or a sound. I'd like to fix the mic myself if possible, I'm pretty handy in the electronics department.

I would imagine the mic element broke. To test, remove from the case and without touching anything else, touch (using a small screwdriver if need be) the solder connections on the wires for the mic element (while system is up). Hum? Yes? bad mic element. No? Problem with electronics. Look for broken wires also.
The receiver shows signal so RF is ok. You have a problem with the audio section.

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 put it through my pa system for band practice and it just isnt loud enough. I have a 1000w Powered mixer so its not that. I tested other vocal mics and they get really loud. but I lvoe the Sm58 why...


Other than being dropped, or the xlr connection is faulty...a sm58 is pretty indestructible. Try a differnt cable, a different channel on the mixer. Mght be time to spend the 100.00 and get a new one. Be careful of fakes that are out there.

Shure sm58 just started outputting very low volume. It has been working fine with our system for years. Tried other sm58 mics on the same mic cable with same system setup and no troubles. There is still...


Check your wire connections inside the mic where the xlr cable connects to the mic. Hopefully your mic has never been dropped as this will damage it. The sm58 is pretty much indestructible, so check your cabling that you use, try a different channel.

Sm 58 dropped and cuts out


Under which circumstances did it fail? Might be due to internal wiring getting loose or a damaged capsule after you have dropped it. Can you take it apart to confirm that?
