Beta 98H/C - Converting for use with wireless transmitter

FAQ #2962 Updated August 04, 2016

Question:

I would like to make my Beta 98H/C mic into a wireless using a Shure bodypack transmitter. Is this possible? If so, how does the mic receive phantom power and how do I wire the mic to fit into the 4 pin conector on the transmitter?

Answer:

Is this possible?  Yes.

If so, how does the mic receive phantom power and how do I wire the mic to fit into the 4 pin conector on the transmitter?  The in-line preamp (located inside of the male XLR barrel) is not used when the Beta 98H/C connects to a transmitter, so phantom power is not required. However, +5Vdc bias is required to operate the mic element; this +5Vdc bias is provided by the transmitter.

1) Obtain a female 4 pin connector - Switchcraft TA4F. Shure sells it as the model WA330

2) Disconnect or cut the wire leading from the mic to the in-line preamp.

3) Solder the TA4F to the disconnected mic wire: Shield to pin 1; red to pin 2; black to pin 3 and to pin 4.
