Microphone volume too quiet

Hi! I've tried using my microphone with multiple different sound cards on this Fedora 28 box and the recording volume is extremely quiet. I've done the obvious: bump the volume up all the way in pavucontrol and alsamixer. I've even ensured the issue isn't with pulse by running arecord directly on the device. If I scream into the mic, I hear sound, but no matter how much I increase the volume, it does not get loud enough to be useful.

This microphone works on another Fedora machine, so I don't know where to go from here. Is there a funny kernel parameter I might have set at one point that just makes the microphone really quiet?

To summarize, the microphone works in all other systems except this F28 system. And all other microphones work fine in the same F28 system. Is that correct?
