Re: [Harp-L] hohner blues blaster xlr cord

Hi, Billy

The BluesBlaster cable is wired unbalanced, Pin 3 Hot. That means the center conductor of the cable is connected to XLR pin 3; the shield is connected to pin 1 and the latch.

> Good Day. I have an original Hohner Blues Blaster with the Astatic M-151 element in it. This microphone has a female xlr built into it. I recently lost the supplied cord to this mic, male xlr to 1/4 inch. I do know that this mic cord was wired differently/unbalanced to use with the Blues Blaster. Does anybody know how to wire this? I believe that hot goes to pin two and ground to pin one, leaving pin three with nothing. Can anyone verify this for me? I bought this one when Hohner first issued them, it still works great and I do not want to fry it. Thanks. Rockin’ Billy
