Introduction

All of the internal wiring needs to be connected. Soldering wires to the Faceplate ensures that your microphone will function properly.

Parts

No parts required.

I just want to say Thank you! Simple complete instruction. Couldn't be easier.

I don't have a + on my plate, but several marks like one resembling Z, another one BB overlapped by 82 and A in the corner. Also I have 3 connection points (middle one is perhaps the black wire?), and 2 pairs of yellows and greens. Since I have version with switch, I suspect one pair of yellow and green being direct bypasses of the mic (you can see it coming from deeper in the body, while the other pair coming straight from the switch connection points).

In any case, how do I find out which colour for which connection point?

I couldn't tell you without looking at the mic, however I am sure you could find the answer by googling it and reading through forums. What exactly are you trying to do to the mic?
