Old SM58 wiring

FAQ #698 Updated August 15, 2008

Question:

I have an SM58 microphone and I need to rewire the plug that is on the mic. You're web site shows a 3 wire diagram but my mic has 4 wires. Red, blue, orange and black. Can you please advise the wiring arrangement for this microphone?

Answer:

Your SM58 was manufactured before 1983. The orange wire will not be used for your rewiring of the XLR plug. Here is the correct wiring: black to pin 1; blue to pin 2; red to pin 3.
