Vintage Microphone Connector to 1/4 Inch Cable question.

Postby niceties55 » Tue Apr 28, 2020 9:27 pm

I have a vintage Electro-Voice 605 (500 Ohm) microphone that I would like to use.

I was wondering what connector that this microphone uses? I have attached a photo of the connector on the bottom of the mic. The connector has only two holes with the numbers 1 and 2 marked next to them.

I have a couple of vintage mics that I have put a 1/4 Inch Cable adapter on them and they work great. I was wondering what connector/adapter I would need to do the same with this mic?

Thanks!

Just google the mic name, find the data sheet and you'll find that the one on the mic is an Amphenol MC1 connector. Though on further looking, that doesn't seem to be the case here as that only has a small central pin. But it's almost certainly an Amphenol connector and looks to be a 2-pin offset plug and socket.

The next step is trying to find the equivalent male connector part. Which is probably a (CNA) 80MC2M.

Looks like you'll have to find used or NOS supplies.
