Heil 781 for Maestro...cable?

I want to order a Heil 781 to use with my Maestro/6400.  Anybody know the correct cable I will need?  There are lots of choices and the dealers are giving me inconsistent answers.  I am planning on getting the Heil boom and Heil shock mount too.  Thanks.

    To use the PR781 Mic with a Maestro, you would likely need the Heil CC-1-XLR-YM.  It's a Modular 8-pin adapter with Yaesu Pinout to XLR Plug.  I'm not sure what would be needed with the 6400.  I would call Heil Sound and ask them.  THey are very helpful.  73, Dave, K1DLM

    let me ask you guys a further question so the cable that goes from the Heil 781 to the maestro is a different cable that goes from the Heil 781 to the flex 6400 so for a base station microphone on a boom and I am I better off plugging the microphone into the Maestro or into the 6400 add another question is as a maestro user can I plug the microphone into the 6400 if I'm always using the maestro

    My Shure 55 is plugged into my 6500 balanced jack, and I am using the Maestro with no issues.  Not sure what the 6600 uses, but there are adapters to use it on multiple connectors.

    Yes, they are different.  

    If the radio is nearby, I would plug it in the radio and not the Maestro.  

    Yes, you can select a Mic plugged into the radio while using the Maestro.
