sE2200a Mic Problem
Hi all, I have the se2200a and up to now, it's been a great mic, I only bought it in December or last year (2011) and recorded with it and done nothing else but take good good care of it, being a very sensitive and delicate piece of equipment. However, going to record some new vocals for a project, I can't seem to get it to pick up or send out any signal. I plug it into an Art valve pre amp which I have always used with the 48+ phantom power on and I don't get any movement on the VU meter anymore. I tried plugging the XLR into the other pre amp I had and then plugging my bass in and it picks the sound up there easily no problems at all. I'm assuming its the mic itself or would I be wrong in thinking that. Every now and then when I move the XLR cable, it crackles, so it's 50/50 either way, mic or cable. Both my pre amps work and I have tried the mic in both, so I am ruling the preamps out leaving the problem lying with the mic or the cable. Any suggestions?
