Hey guys, this is my first time posting here so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place or something like that. I have an older Astatic 200-S microphone that I'm trying to get working but it's missing the jack at the end of the wire. It has one shielded white wire surrounded by an un shielded wire. I'm thinking the white is + and the unshielded is -? I have no clue where to start. Thanks in advance -Mike

I don't quite understand the wire surrounding the center wire.
Here's a picture of a coax I had laying around, with a center wire surrounded by the shield. Single conductor with shielding - similar to high impedance cable. Does yours look similar?
On a high impedance microphone (HI Z), the most common plug is what I refer to as an Amphenol (trade name) pictured. I don't know its common nomenclature. But, the plug is normally determined by what it's plugging into-the amp may have different requirements. Some used a 1/4" phone jack, some other types.
Can you post a pic of your wire/cable?
