Please help with Shire unidyne 3, low volume issue

Hi All, I have an old Unidyne 3 I sang back-ups through. When compared to a newer 57 the Unidyne is much lower in volume. Is there a solution such as taking it apart and cleaning it, and/or cleaning the screen and capsule? Or ,may this be Some other issue? Thanks for any assistance.

Is the windscreen broken or too tight? The windscreen break on these a lot. If you try to fix it by pushing down too hard it can ruin the sound.

Is this a version with a 4-pin connector, as opposed to an XLR? If so, then it's designed to be wired for either low- (XLR) or high- (1/4") impedance use . . . and miswired connectors and adapter cables are extremely common.

The mic is 3 pin xlr. The top unscrews.

The solution is the Cloudlifter CL-1 or CL-Z.

I have a few of those old Unidyne's and they work great with the CL-Z.
