Am I out of luck with this mic? My cables are with the rest of the rig in another town tonight. I've had mics get pretty wet in the rain before, but not twenty minutes of churning water and laundry detergent.

My guess is that you are out of luck, but I hope that you'll report back once you have had a chance to rinse it, bury it in rice or dunk it in a pint of stout...

It's probably time to take advantage of Shure's exchange service:

$59 for a Beta98.

The mic sat on the kitchen counter in a dry, air-conditioned house before I got the chance to put it back in the mic box. I didn't do anything else to it (rice, distilled water flush, etc) like I wanted to. I finally had a minute tonight to plug it in. I'm no tom drum, but my "check-one-two" sounded pretty clean through it. I'll try it on a high SPL source soon. But the first diagnosis seems to indicate the dodging of a bullet.

Thank you for your comments.

Cool! Good testimonial for the toughness of Shure mics.
