I have a pair of Nevaton MCE400's. One mic has developed an intermittent noise when listening back. I have been told it is either a cable shield break (or multiple breaks), or a poor cable connection at the capsule.
Now these mics are not at all robust and to prevent the problem re-occurring I am thinking about just getting both mics completely rewired with sturdy cable and bomb-proof connections with both the mic and the XLR. I have somebody reasonably local who, whilst not familiar with Nevatons, is a professional repairer of all audio studio equipment. He reterminated a pair of mics for me last year and they work fine so I am reasonably confident in his ability.
What I need to know is - is it a good idea to try to completely rewire/cable these mics, or am I best asking him to just repair the faulty mic? If it is ok to go, is there anything my audio guy needs to know particular to Nevatons to carry out this job successfully. Also, should he re-use the existing XLR connectors rather than put new ones on? Any advice would be very gratefully received!
