    I have purchased two B-2 pro mics over the last few years.  Initially the sound awesome, clear, and very low noise.  After about 2 months of use they have extreme noise and low output.  The mics are left powered and go into a 100W transmitter at my radio station.  I have since switched to a EV RE20 which is indistructable but requires the preamps to be mazed out.  I gave one of the broken B-2 Pros away, but would like to fix the one I still have.  I have seen this issue elsewhere on the internet and it appears to be a design flaw.  Does anyone have the schematics or know what the common mode of failure on this mic is?  I would prefer not to have to reverse engineer the mic.

      Dale_M Hi there sorry for your experience but schematics are only available to support partners of Music Tribe. Is your mic still within it's 2/3 year warranty?
