Lav Mic RepairsLav Mic with TA5F Connector Repair

Most lavalier microphone problems are caused by damaged connectors or intermittent wires on the connector end.

The internal wires on a lavalier mic's cable are extremely small and can be easily broken or damaged by repeated flexing in a specific area, being pinched sharply or even pulled too hard.

Our technicians can repair these issues with your lav microphones by rebutting the connector and wiring it to the proper specifications.

Problems at the Mic Head (Element)

Problems with or near the lavalier mic head (element) can not be fixed as the heads are generally produced by a machine at the factory and therefore are not servicable. Models that do have servicable heads are usually not cost effective for repair (i.e. Sony ECM series).

For mics with head problems, we offer options to purchase new mics, and if purchased from us, we waive the evaluation fee. Many of the microphones we sell are available with or without clips and accessories depending on your needs.

If your lav mic is hardwired (directly attached) to a power supply and has problems at the mic head, we can install a new mic on your old power supply (Sony, Tram and Sanken hardwired units).
