Hey aron i use a beta98 for my accordions but only use five switches and two tones and i notice that alot of the higher and lower notes get lost and arent picked up as well as the middle one. Is there anyway to connect two betas on to one body pack? Or would i have to have a whole different system so i can mic up both bottom and top part of the accordion thanks!!!

You would actually have to use two wireless systems for that.

But, I also use 5 switch accordions and the coverage on mine is not flawlessly balanced, but it is acceptable....how do you have yours mounted?

Ive seen a couple of people split the wires and connect them together. They say all it is is a red and black wire but im not sure if thats what i want to do, since those betas dont cost no 5dollars lol

Yea, that's probably something you don't want to mess with unless you know what you're doing.  The Beta 98 is a condenser mic and derives its Phantom power from the transmitter.  There will be a different load with two mics that the transmitter is not expecting.  There has to be some electrical compensation of some sort to make everything work properly, and I'm not even sure what that would be without really diving into it.  Not sure that the coverage of one mic is that bad to be worth all that hassle.

Good luck, though... [crazy]

Gents,

My friend customized his GLX wireless system recently with two shure beta 98 mics.  He said it sounds really nice, no feedback, and he took it to a shop to get the mics wired professionally.  I can't give you details on how to do it honestly.

Juanpcampos so it is possible to join both mics into the same transmitter? I have 2 shure 98's I've been re searching but can't find any info on how it was done or even how it works. Any one in here have any info on how to do it?

Let me ask a friend of mine who did have it done to his system and works great. I dont the details behind it because he took it to some shop to have it done.

I have a system I made that uses 2 mics for the smaller accordions and 3 for the bigger ones. It outputs to a single 1/2 output. You can just plug a wireless unit made for a electric guitar into it if you want to go wireless.
