I have a small home studio, and use about a dozen microphones. As it is a home studio, I work on a limited budget. I purchased inexpensive cables and used (but good) microphones. However, recently some of the XLR-mic connections are getting loose. Specifically, I have two beta-58s that do not get strong connections with the cables. If the mics are moved around during recording, the cables can jostle slightly (but stay attached)
Is this a problem with cheap (and poorly fitted) cables? Should these microphones ever develop connection problems? At this point, is there a way to fix the problem without replacing the cables/mics, or would replacement be the best bet?
