Basically, I'm trying to figure out a way to run my SM57 through my pedals. I ordered a chord online that's female XLR to male 1/4 inch jack, so that I could plug the xlr into the mic and the jack into the pedal. The cable had good reviews so I figured it would work. However, what I didn't realize until I got the chord is that the jack has two rings, so it's a stereo signal. From what i understand about the way the signal works, i figured this wouldn't be a problem, so I plugged it into my pedal, and plugged that into the amp. I didn't get a signal at all, so I just tried running it straight to the amp. Still no signal. Shouldn't this work? The ground would just connect with the ground, and I don't imagine it would short out with the right signal, while the left would connect with the... main one.. the non ground one. I don't know maybe I'm totally wrong. Is it just a bad cable?
