    • Using a small flat head screwdriver, gently turn the retaining screw at the bottom of the microphone counterclockwise until it stops or provides resistance.

    • The retaining screw is mounted to the connector and has a left-handed thread. Turning the screw clockwise locks the connector in place. Turning it counterclockwise lowers it down into the hole, releasing the connector.

    • Once the screw stops, do not try to loosen it further.

    • Clamps are helpful for this step.

    • In one hand, hold the solder. In the other, hold your soldering iron.

Red wire to pin 3? Seems to go against the pin 2 hot method?

Jim - Réponse

I'm not familiar with the "pin 2 hot method." We took a working mic apart and reassembled it the way we found it, so I'm pretty that is the correct soldering configuration.
