Hello since nowhere are talked about what transmitters are Shure capsule ready and which needs adapters I tought to start discussion because I really am after transmitter and receiver for my sm58 capsules that has taken from bad frequency transmitters. So I am after cheap wireless set that is capsule exchangeable with sm58 capsules.

Frequencies need to be:

823832 MHz (UHF)    Usage for free license
863865 MHz (UHF)    Usage for free licence

If you have experience in this matter please join to talk.

I have heard that Samson Concert transmitter supports Shure capsules...

Jeremi,

RatSound makes ones that let you use Audix and Sennheiser capsules on various Shure and Lectrosonics TX units, and I know I've seen some others for sale at B&H Photo/Video.

Other posts have been made about them, maybe try searching for capsule adapters.

Nice Kam VHF supports shure capsules: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003SQ91US/ref=s9_simh_gw_p267_d0_i5?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=19Q0J371BCGC1G1RZ8Y9&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=455344027&pf_rd_i=468294

This was confimed by amazon seller who is audio gear store.

Also German Alpha Audio: http://www.alpha-audio.de/alphaaudio_mic_dual_wl.html?&L=12

I think these will fit also. I bought these as they share same mic transmitter model than KAM audio but they operate UHF 683-685 band. The good thing of these were also that they support 9V battery so I can use Li-ION batteries with it. Makse 4 times more operating time than statet. I will report if they support Shure capsules.

Lectrosonics mic is confirmed to support Shure capsules by youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Z0FbTNiIx0M

Also in the video is said that EV, HiSound and Telefunkin capsules can be used so I assume these mics are shure compatible also. Audix capsules need that adapter to support Shure threading so audix transmitters does not work with shure, neither does senheiser.

Edit:

I went to EV and Telefunkin websites and it seams their mics thread size seem similar to shure when looking the mics so I guess this is confirmed.

I think you should email those manufacturers to confirm your visual observations.

I can now confirm that Alpha Audio One mics do support Shure capsules but, 1. the9V pin is missing and 2. the 9V line is not soldered from transmitter.



When these modifications are done my sm58 capsules do work nice. They have a strong signal even better than Alpha Audio One capsules.

You might wanna keep an eye on that.  Most Shure wireless capsules have a preamp built into the capsule that may be unnecessary to your transmitter.  You may end up overdriving the input to the transmitter.

Hello, the sm58 is just slightly louder. I measured Shure transmitters had 1.7V center, 5V mid and outer is GND. My transmitter has 9V battery and measures were these: Center 3.7V, mid 8.2V-6V and outer is GND. Reminding that 9V batteries keep constantly about 8.4-6V voltage so thish is proper voltage for the capsule all time. The center higher voltage may provide some differency in signal streght or not but all and all Shure sounds a bit more volume than Alpha Audio mics. They are nearly the same but shure has more presence and stuff like that. So I think there are no issues atleast for sm58 capsules.

Still the voltages are better in this transmitter since it has more room for audio signal. 1.7v is often used as reference voltages in op-amp circuits because it can just fine hold the line level. 3.7 provides more than enough room.

Jeremi, That's not what Don is talking about.  He works for Line 6 and is familiar with the use of capsules on wireless transmitters.  I suspect he's familiar with the major brands and products and the differences between them.  It might be wise to consider his thoughts and examine different versions of the same mic element, as used by different transmitter manufacturers.  This is about the audio voltage level (not power supply voltages) sent from the capsule to the transmitter.
