In answer to what amp I'm using, I have not yet been able to rustle up the funds needed for anything larger than my little Pignose 20. I'm currently saving up for a Bassman though.

i have seen a diagram on which wires inside the mic to change around to make it high z but it's been so long i have no idea where that info might be found. possibly would be a good place to start a search. gregg heumann of may have answers as well. he is a great mic builder and modifier. he shortens and makes other cool mods to stick mics. i hope to one day have him mod my 545 in fact, he can also put a bullet type head on a stick mic to make for easier holding and cupping.

you didn't mention what amp you're running. i run one of 2, either a medium size vintage silvertone 1482 for small and medium rooms or a replica custom built '59 bassman for big rooms or outdoors. both are tube all the way. my mics of choice are vintage bullet with vintage cm element, custom crystal mic, and a electrovoice dynamic mic modded to high z.

hope something i wrote here is a help!

I recently bought a Shure 545s. The ebay seller I bought it from says that it has been wired low impedance and he provided an 4 pin to 3 pin adapter. Obviously, I want to convert this mic to high impedance so I took it into my local music store to try to do this. The person working there told me I don't need to do anything to the mic itself, all I need is an XLR to 1/4 " cable. I did know I need this, but I thought I had to do something to the mic? Am I wrong or is the attendant at the store wrong?

Also, the attendant said that the cable I bought needed to be a 4 pin XLR. I thought that having the adapter solved this issue and saved me the trouble of having to look for the relatively rare and expensive 4 pin XLR to 1/4 " cable? Again, am I wrong or is the attendant?

Finally, I'd like to add that although I've been playing harp for a long time, I am still a relative novice in terms of mics/electronics, so please don't spare on any explanations!

Thank you so very much,
