Is there a Mini-XLR to XLR cable?

Hello, I am having a hard time finding a female mini-XLR to female XLR adapter. Is there such a cable? Where can I find one?

My idea is to connect a standard mic to my wireless system. The wireless system is for use with a lapel mic, but if I had this cable I could use other mics.

Is this a sound idea?

Richard, I use these guys for all my audio supplies. They are in London, but if you wade through their pages, get somewhere close to what you want at least you can then have information available to point others to?

Page 55 of the Markertek catalog. A 6 ft mini-XLR to female-XLR cable is catalog # XLF-TA3F-6 ($21.99). A 25 ft cable is # XLF-TA3F-25 ($37.99).

Their phone number is 800-522-2025. There is an online store but it is not as complete as the printed catalog.

Best wishes,
Peter

Here is one at B&H that is 3 foot. If you search their site with "xlr adapter" there are many other options as well.

Jeff, actually bought something like that and it was the wrong one. I don't need mini to XLR. I need "mini-XLR" to full size XLR. Both ends need to be female.

I'll checkout those other places to see if it is possible.

Thank you everybody for the leads.

These would be too long to be convenient, but many boundary layer mics from Crown and AT use a mini-XLR to male XLR. You could then add a female to female XLR gender changer, they're cheap and handy to have anyway. You could then at least test it and see if it actually works with your wireless input if you have access to a boundary layer mic.

Richard, contact soundprofessionals.com and have them make the cable for you. I have had them make several for me for use with my Samson Micro32 wireless.

Gotcha. I saw "mini" and just thought "miniphone".
