Vintage Mics replacement partsFAQ #1103
Question:I recently purchased a Shure 737A crystal microphone. The case was in very good shape. What I need is some help on replacing the crystal element. I realize you don't make this element anymore. I was hoping another crystal element could be substituted in its place. I also need the screws for the case. I believe they are the same screws that go in the 55SH II.If you can't supply the element, do you have any idea where I might get an element that will work.I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sorry, Shure does not have the parts for repair of very old microphones. Discontinued product data sheets can also be downloaded on the Shure web site.
