Trying to fix the picture problem. I moved the files to a new folder and it's acting up. Couple of troubleshooting ideas. Let me know if you this will work. I have an SM57 that I did the transformerless mod on. So essentially the transformer has been pulled and is now just the capsule. I saved the transformer and wired it between two XLR plugs. This way I can make the SM57 stock if I want to by adding the transformer back in the cable line. Works pretty well. So I want to test the RE20 to see if my issue is at the diaphragm with the magnet wires or if it's somewhere at the transfomer/XLR connrection. I'll disasemble the RE20 to get to the mic element seperated. I'll then take the mic element and run some jumper wires to the SM57's transformer. I can then test the vocals. If it works fine, then I know my issue is somewhere in the EV20 wiring. If it doesn't then I know my issue will be around the magnet wires. Second test is the opposite of this. I'll take the SM57 capsule and run a jumper to the transformer on the EV20. Then test the mic to see if it works. If it does, then I know the RE20 is ok. Both are dynamic mics that don't require phantom power. Do you think this will work?
