  • Good for guitar.........

    As reviewed by Zane on 2/15/2011

    In searching for a new wireless system for my bass I came across the 'AKG perception 45' at my local Guitar Center. It is a new product and we (the sales staff & I) could not find any user reviews on this system in order to make an educated purchase. But I took a chance knowing AKG's reputation and based on my experience with their products. -Construction- The construction of the system is ok, not great but not awful either. It is all plastic and the bodypack seems to be a little bit flimsy, like it could not take much abuse, so if you are hard on your stuff look for something more rugged than this. -Sound- Since I bought this for the bass that's what I plugged in first. On my 4 string it performed decent but had trouble producing the low E. In fact when playing anything lower than C (3rd fret on the A string) you could begin to tell it was struggling and it got worse as I went down the scale. Then, just for giggles, I plugged in my 5 string to see what would happen..... the low B was weak and distorted just as i was expecting. So I took off the bass and plugged in an acoustic...this is where this unit began to shine. It performs flawlessly when plugged into some thing other than a bass. -Bottom line- If you are going to use this for a guitar or anything besides a bass, and if you are not hard on your gear, then this unit could be a good fit for you. But if you are a bassist.....move on.

  • Great wireless.

    As reviewed by RICHARD MILLIGAN on 7/17/2013

    I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new wireless system to replace my old one so I bought the AKG Mini. I was getting noise through that one so Josh at Guitar Center Detroit suggested looking for a used AKG Perception system. I was a little hesitant to say yes but I did. It came in and I took it home and hooked it up and I was very pleased with the sound and performance. I finally used it live and no dropouts or noise and I didn't even have to experiment with different channels!! It sounds a little different than a cable but not in a bad way. The clip on the transmitter the transmitter on the strap is the best I've seen and I'll save money by buying AA batteries instead of 9 volts. The only thing that drives me nuts is the specialized cable that goes from your instrument to the actual transmitter. It's like 3 feet long! Ridiculous! I ordered an 18 inch long cable from a company online and all is well now. Thanks again Josh.

  • Awesome for any instrument

    As reviewed by Gina Hass on 5/18/2013

    I bought this system about a month ago and it seems to be working perfectly fine with my bass, guitar, and acoustic. I get no feed back from it whatsoever, I've played 2 shows so far with it using my bass and it survives the jumping and running around and it doesn't cut out on me at all. You get great range out of it, about 100-125 feet and in my opinion that's enough range for me.
