Adapting TA-5F Audiotechnica AT898 to Sennheiser G2/G3

8 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever adapted any TA-5F mics to work with any Sennheiser G2/G3 wireless systems? I have some lavs I could sell in order to purchase new lavs or just change them over to see if I can get them to work. Just curious if anyone else has done this before.

I've made adapters for many mics to be used with Sennheiser G series wireless. The 3.5 mm side is always the same, positive to the tip & ground to the sleeve. As an example for TA5 wired for Lectro you'll need a male TA5 wired as follows. Jump pins 2 & 4 with the ground to pin 1 and positive to pin 3.

Awesome!!! I think I have a couple extra TA5 male connectors. I just have to wait on the 3.5mm to arrive. Thanks

I have had the shop @ LSC make me various lav adapters (Lectro connectored Countryman>Shure TX, Shure connectored DPA to Lectro TX) and they worked fine, not very expensive, very fast turnaround.  I had mine made kind of short (6"), you might consider having the adapter cable be longer so you can stow the "join" better and not have it dangling.

Eric Toline has doen this for me several times. "The link" is a 6 inch or less "shorty" that plugs onto the end of the lab and then into the G2/3.

Wow thank you guys. I will try one of the YAMs. Not sure if the wiring for the audiotechinca and the lectrosonic are the same, but it is worth a try.
