    Recently found my dads old karaoke set up in the basement, but unfortunately they run on a restricted frequency (they were made before the 2010 wireless microphone regulations). So I intend on removing the transmitter, and soldering an xlr directly to the positive/negative. I've just never seen this type of connector (pictured below), which ring corresponds to p/n/g? Thanks

    Looks like the outer ring is ground. The other two don't matter that much. If its polarity is backwards, it will rarely matter, but I'd it does, mixers have polarity switches for a reason.

    I hope this works out for you but Shure's FAQ isn't encouraging

    Converting wireless to wired microphones

    It's worth a try though.
    I'd be interested to see the insides of the mic and if it has a transformer built in. Possibly a 3d printed end cap could be made to adapt and xlr to it.

    Translation: that’s a hard “no”, but knock yourself out.

    ps - sounds like a world of trouble for a $99 microphone.
