  1. If you can open the connector check to see if there appears to be a short between the pins or a broken solder point. Does squeezing the mic cable anywhere along it's length change or stop the whine?
  2. Thank you for your good wishes. I will try to fulfill them. Eric
  3. Collateral Damage & Such. As most of you know I was hit with a heart attack back in April this year. It took it's toll to be sure on many levels. It affected my ability to operate Production Sound Solutions in Ft. Lauderdale. That along with the loss of film incentive packages and the booming of Atlanta as the hot local market causing many local mixers to relocate there in search of more work. The point is that those issues combined have made me take a long hard look at keeping the shop operational. Sadly and with a great deal of remorse I have officially closed the shop as of Aug 1, 2019. There will be more details on sales of remaining stock and other items of interest. My most sincere thank you to all who shopped & became life long friends, you will all be remembered and missed. OTOH maybe after making it to 82yo with 62 years of audio it's time to "cut." Again, thank you one & all. Best regards, Eric Toline
  4. Put a piece of pic-n-pluck foam around the release button parts before adding the hot glue. Advice from experience not a guess.
  5. Swap one of the 100series RX to another input and put a 500 series into input 3. I think that should solve your problem for while.
  6. Assuming that the phantom power was the same for all and that you understand that the Audix has a lower output level than the others. how does that affect your findings? Having all 3 mics pulling on the same phantom at the same time could affect your results. I would suggest that you check out the new Sanken CS-M1 to replace all 3 of those you have.

    Zelle is part of my Chase on line account. Use it for many payments, never a problem with instant response to transactions.
  8. Easy way to unbalance is to split the ground into two legs, tin both and solder one one leg to pin one and the other to pin 3.
  9. A coating the same way the L -R & G are coated in Sony 7506 HP's are coated.
  10. Lectro uses a different measurement starting point than Sennheiser does. Antennas are cut for the center frequency of the block they are in. Center frequency for your case would be 643. Nothing to worry about.
  11. While the other choices are very nice, I have to say that the Sanken CS-M1 has become the new boom mic du jour at my shop, "Production Sound Solutions.com" in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. Customers have listened to it, compared and made the choice to replace what ever they had on their pole with the Sanken CS-M1. It does so many things so well that it's hard to say no to it. It basically sells it's self after listening tests. We've sold over a dozen and not one has been returned for any reason.
  12. Which pin is which depends on which side of the connector you're looking at, plug side or solder side. From the solder side I use this * ground * NC * positive/audio
  13. What you call the "fingers" are really a split collet that close down over the outer jacket as you tighten the back barrel nut. I avoid the compression crimp style as once the collar is compressed there's no going back to do any repairs. The tough part of soldering an older COS-11 is that the 3 wires have developed a mind of their own and refuse to stay still when you have to resolder them. Here's trick I use, once the wires are connected to the pins and you're sure there are no shorts, etc cover the exposed connections with clear nail polish. That will insulate all the connections from shorting out when you put the two half round clamps around the pin block. One more tip, there is a raised key way above pin 1 (ground) get a Sharpie and mark it black, that makes it easier to see it and line up the cut out opening in one of the half round clamps. OTOH life would be a lot simpler and less expensive if all TX units used a TA5 connector.
  14. Thank you all for the kind words but sorry to say that for health reasons I won't be there this year.
