    Repairing a Shure 545?

    Greetings- I recently bought an older Shure 545 (4-pin Amphenol era) on eBay, and while it works, it sounds a bit of the dog with voice: a greatly diminished low end, and reminiscent of talking through a paper towel tube. Given there's only three parts to the mic: cartridge, transformed and...

    Shure PE505P

    Hey everyone, I found a Shure PE505P online. I tried to do some research on it and I am finding almost nothing. The closest to it I can find is a PE50SP. I can't even find any stats or a diagram on it or anything. All I've found is the mics around this time period are basically sm58's...

    Wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Shure KSM42 ? I believe they are a side address cardioid condenser with a dual capsule (one active and one passive).

    Spotting a counterfeit SM58

    As a public service to RO and its potential visitors, I thought I'd research this topic and post a thread explaining the differences between real Shure SM58 mics and counterfeit models. In the last few years, a serious number of fake 58's have hit the global market. This isn't a myth, these fake...

    Shure SM 57/58 + The Arctic Monkeys

    thought this was pretty cool. Sounds heavily edited, and polished, but at least they are using them in the video. Song is definately more interesting withe the full arrangement, the acoustic version is a bit boring after a couple minutes

    Tape Op SM57 Mod Has anyone tried this mod? It's a simple mod - basically, you're just removing the transformer from the XLR barrel housing of the mic by boiling (yes, I said boiling) the housing of the mic ( and of course you have removed the XLR jack and the capsule...

  19. good external DAC for vocals recorded with Shure Beta 58A

    Hello! I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I did a search but didn't find anything useful, which I guess is because not many use the 58A for recording vocals. It fits my voice like a hand in a glove. I've been using a 12+ year old 12 channel mackie mixer (don't remember the model name atm)...
