Hints for repair

Item 1 (2571M9901) is the complete pickup assembly with free cable end. The pickup itself cannot be dismantled and is not further repairable. When connecting two-wire pickups to PCB 2397M1022 use round pad for screen and square pad for red. The rectangular pad remains unused. For variation 1 (A) and 3 (C) inside the plug the blue cable core (if there is one) has to be connected to screen.
Position 1 (2571M9901) ist der komplette Tonabnehmer mit angewachsenem Kabel und freiem Ende. Der Tonabnehmer selbst ist nicht weiter zerlegbar und kann daher nicht repariert werden. Bei Verwendung von Tonabnehmern mit Zweidrahtanschluss kommt der Schirm auf den runden Kontakt des Prints 2397M1022 und die rote Ader an den quadratischen Kontakt. Der rechteckige Kontakt bleibt frei. Bei Variante 1 (A) und 3 (C) muss im Stecker die blaue Ader -falls vorhanden- mit dem Schirm verbunden werden.

2 Interfacing

2.1 Introduction The C 411III pickup is a condenser transducer and therefore needs a power supply. Using any power supply other than those recommended by AKG may damage your pickup and will void the warranty. 1. Connect the phantom power adapter (1) on the pickup cable to a balanced XLR microphone input with phantom power. 2. Switch the phantom power on. (Refer to the instruction manual of the unit to which you connected your pickup.) 3. If your mixer provides no phantom power: Connect the phantom power adapter (1) to an optional AKG phantom power supply (2) (N 62 E, N 66 E, B 18, B 15) and use an XLR cable (3) (e.g., an optional MK 9/10 from AKG) to connect the phantom power supply to the desired balanced input. MPA Phantom MPA

( Important!

2.2 C 411III PP 2.2.1 Connecting to Balanced Inputs Refer to fig. 1.
Fig. 1: Connecting to a balanced input.
You may connect any AKG phantom power supply (2) to an unbalanced input, too. Use a cable (3) with a female XLR connector and TS jack plug: 2.2.2 Connecting to Unbalanced Inputs Refer to fig. 2.
Fig. 2: Connecting to an unbalanced input. 1. On the XLR connector (4), use a wire bridge to connect pin 1 to pin 3 and the cable shield. 2. Connect the inside wire of the cable to pin 2 on the XLR connector (4) and the tip contact of the jack plug (5). 3. Connect the shield of the cable to the shaft contact on the jack plug (5). Unbalanced cables may pick up interference from stray magnetic fields near power or lighting cables, electric motors, etc. like an antenna. This may introduce hum or similar noise if you use a cable that is longer than 16 feet (5 m). Note:
2.3 C 411III L 2.3.1 Using the Optional B 29 L The optional B 29 L battery supply allows you to connect the pickup to balanced or unbalanced inputs with no phantom power. B 29 L
Fig. 3: Using the B 29 L to power the microphone. Refer to fig. 3. 1. Connecting the cable: Push the mini XLR connector (1) on the pickup cable into one of the two mini XLR sockets on the B 29 L (2) to the stop. The connector will lock automatically. Disconnecting the cable: To disconnect the cable, press the unlocking button on the mini XLR connector (1) and pull the connector (1) out of the socket.

Important!

To avoid damaging the cable, never try to pull out the cable itself! 2. Connect the B 29 L (2) to the desired input. Use a commercial XLR cable (3) to connect the B 29 L (2) to a balanced input. Refer to section 2.2.2 above.
Refer to fig. 3. Balanced input: Unbalanced input:
1. Connecting the cable: Push the mini XLR connector (1) on the pickup cable into the mini XLR socket (2) on the cable of the MPA III L (3) to the stop. The connector will lock automatically.
2.3.2 Using the MPA III L Refer to fig. 4.
Fig. 4: Connection diagram with MPA III L. Disconnecting the cable: Refer to section 2.3.1 above. 2. Connect the MPA III L (3) to a balanced XLR microphone input with phantom power. 3. Switch the phantom power on. (Refer to the instruction manual of the unit to which you connected your pickup.) 4. If your mixer provides no phantom power: Connect the MPA III L (3) to an optional AKG phantom power supply (4) (N 62 E, N 66 E, B 18, B 15) and use an XLR cable (5) (e.g., an optional MK 9/10 from AKG) to connect the phantom power supply (4) to the desired balanced input. Refer to the manual of your bodypack transmitter.

Refer to fig. 4.

2.3.3 Connecting to a Bodypack Transmitter 17
3.1 Introduction Since a soundboard vibrates differently in different places, you can get diferent sounds by carefully selecting the spot where you mount the pickup. Section 3.2 describes proven techniques that you may want to use as starting points for your own experiments. If you are going to attach the pickup to a lacquered surface, check the condition of the lacquer coat first. If the lacquer coat is porous or cracked, the adhesive compound will lose some of its tack and may damage the lacquer coat further when you remove the pickup.
3.2 Attaching the Pickup to the Instrument Note:
Fig. 5: Pressing the adhesive compound on the underside of the pickup.
1. Remove the backing from the supplied adhesive compound. 2. Press some of the adhesive compound (just enough to cover the "footprint" of the pickup) on the underside of the pickup. 3. Press the pickup onto the bridge of your instrument or onto the soundboard, near the bridge.
Refer to figs. 6 through 9 on page 19.
