Overview

The WMS 40 Mini instrumental systems features AKG's unique HDAP (High Definition Audio Performance) technology ensures the best possible, most realistic sound at any time. The system includes an SR 40 MINI receiver, a PT 40 MINI pocket transmitter, a MKG L instrument cable, a universal power supply with US/UK/EU adapter, and one AA size dry battery.

The SR 40 Mini receiver provides three status LEDs indicating ON/OFF status, received signal strength (RF OK), and audio clipping (AF CLIP). The VOLUME control sets the level at the ¼" output jack. The supplied switched mode power supply operates on any AC voltage from 110 to 240 VAC and includes EU, UK, and US adapters.

The PT 40 Mini bodypack is probably the smallest and lightest transmitter in its class. A reliable mini XLR output allows you to connect every compatible AKG miniature microphone. A single AA size battery will do to power both the transmitter and a condenser microphone connected to it. Battery life of the transmitter is the same legendary "30 hours off a single AA battery" as for the WMS 40 models, reducing the need to replace batteries and thus saving real money in the long run.

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCCs wireless microphone website at: www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.

  • Up to 30 hour playtime with one single AA battery
  • Plug and play
  • Gain control on pocket transmitter
  • Compatible with all AKG MicroMics
  • Low battery indicator

I gave the AKG WM40 a chance because I liked the way it was built and it seemed like a good replacement for the Samson Stage 55 Wireless that died after 4 years of use. I have done at least five shows with it, 2 outdoor shows where I would walk out in a range of at least 75 feet without any drop out whatsoever. Good, Juicy sound without any loss of tone. The AKG WM40 is well worth the money spent.

This unit is unacceptable and I took it back after an hour. It makes hissing and fizzing sounds, pops, and scratchy sounds as well. Other flaws: 1. Ridiculous mini xlr connector instead of standard 1/4 inch. 2. Unnecessary volume control on the receiver; this thing should not affect volume any more than a cord would. 3. No detailed manual available, even on line.

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

Ok so I read a lot of reviews and I purchased this product anyways since I can fix many issues with things myself and for 99 buck or less if you have a coupon, you can get an good, stable, performance quality, wireless setup. That being said. Make sure you do the following.
when you unwrap the cable, pull on the metal strain relief spring away from the connector as to full engage the spring into the back of the housing. When it arrived I did not do that and I experienced ALL of the issues in the negative reviews. I dismantled the connectors and noted that the cable was of reasonable quality and the soldering was not too bad, after reassembling the connectors I found that the spring if not properly seated in the back will actually crate a connection or variable resistance from the signal to the ground. It was as easy as pulling on the springs and I was very satisfied with product since then nice range no complaints.

Tone Robber!

By Thomas

from Pasadena, TX.

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

Definitely changed my tone. For you tone guys, don't buy it. I had to return it. Also had a problem with it popping and static noise from the cable connection. Not very rugged. Now I see why people spend the extra money for the Line 6.

No more cables!

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

I bought one at Westlake Ave. branch in Seattle. It's really worth buying for. There is almost no loss in quality of tone (or no loss at all, if there is, it's unnoticeable). I hate dealing with cables most of the time so this one really is a solution for me. I can play in a distance. It is a great deal.

NOT A GOOD PRODUCT TO PURCHASE

By Nitesh

from IL

Site Member

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

I am very sorry to say that this is not a good product to purchase. I brought this product on March 18, 2015 and now I am having frequency and static problems (i.e. in 3 months). I would suggest that everyone buy a better product rather buying the cheap one.Now I am hating AKG product itself.

Works good if your close.

By JOSEPH

from San Diego, CA

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

I got this unit after reading the reviews and was sadly dissapointed. I couldn't walk more then 10 feet with out it cutting out. I tried all ways tot get it to work without cutting out but to no avail. Looks like I will need to invest in a more expensive unit.

Great for the Money

By James

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

For the price this is an excellent wireless solution. I have discovered that to avoid the nasty noise on startup I followed the following: 1) connect the transmitter and turn it on. 2) turn on my amp. 2) turn on the receiver. When I am done I turn off the receiver first and the amp last. Nice and light weight, I have had no issues with crackle and pop but I am never very far from the receiver which sits on top of my amp. I use the same cable that I used before from my guitar to connect the receiver to my pedal board. I think it brightens my sound. I would recommend this to anyone thinking of getting into wireless. I picked the 'C' channel. Had to wait for it to come into stock but the wait was worth it.

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

Sounds great. The first thing I did with it during indoor practice was took a lap around my bassist's house while playing and everyone said there were no issues... I love it!

Does a good job for Bass

By Andrew Webster

from Virginia

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

I recently bought this (ch. A) and have been using it at home for awhile to test before bringing to rehearsal or a gig. It works well but there have been the occasional RF interferences in the form of static-type sounds that seem to be positional. After experimenting with adjusting the transmitter boost as high as I can with just barely getting a red clip light once in awhile on the receiving unit and installing a fresh battery, I've had only a small amount of RF issues. I will be trying this in different locations soon and hope to at least be able to use the unit long enough to complete sound checks as I run sound from the stage. Not yet sure if I would gig with it due to the RF issues. I play 5 string bass and while the low B isn't quite as loud as it is with a good cable, it's still more than adequate for performance as the specs say this unit transmits down to 40Hz. Overall, I think it's pretty good bang for the buck. Unless you are willing to pony up for the all digital versions which cost 3-5x more, this is probably the best bet for bass as it transmits lower frequencies better then the competition in its price range.
