    • Using a small flat head screwdriver, gently turn the retaining screw at the bottom of the microphone counterclockwise until it stops or provides resistance.

    • The retaining screw is mounted to the connector and has a left-handed thread. Turning the screw clockwise locks the connector in place. Turning it counterclockwise lowers it down into the hole, releasing the connector.

    • Once the screw stops, do not try to loosen it further.

    • Plug an XLR cable into the loose connector.

    • While holding the disconnect button down, pull on the cable to remove the connector from the body of the microphone.


After installing the connector back into the microphone, it should be ready to connect to any XLR cable.

This helped me fix a mic where the screw was not properly raised into the mic body. The XLR plug had been turned. With this information I was able to figure out how to remove the XLR plug, line it up, put it back in and properly raise the screw to hold it in place.

Thanks for this. I had a connector where the screw had come loose and the whole assembly had released and become jammed halfway into the housing, with the 3 prongs halfway exposed. I couldn’t quite figure out what was going on with it because it was really bound in there tightly, but your guide helped me sort out what was wrong, remove the connector assembly, and get it reseated properly in the mic housing. Thanks again!

Hi, I am trying to troubleshoot a very old 58, and the xlr connector screw wont stop turning (anti clockwise) and connector still wont come out. What should I try?

The retaining screw at the bottom of the microphone is gone and I am searching for a replacement. What is the specific name of the screw? Thank you!

It’s a grub screw. Just get hold of a Switchcraft Male XLR plug, either new or from an old mic cable, and and remove the screw. Remember the thread is reversed from a normal screw, which is why this is the best way to get a replacement.
