A handheld microphone wireless system can be an invaluable tool for a touring musician or choir. With the amount of gear rolling onto a stage on any given night, wires running along the floor can be distracting and confusing. With a wireless microphone system, you will have the freedom to move around the stage at your own free will, without being held back by cables that can easily come unplugged.
When choosing the right handheld microphone wireless system for you, the first question you should probably ask yourself is “How many mics do I need?” If you’re a one musician operation, than one microphone may suffice, but you’ll be happy to know that if you are part of a band with multiple singers, or a sound tech setting up multiple shows, you have the option of buying gear in bulk. An option such as the Nady 401X Quad WHT Handheld VHF Wireless Microphone System is great for groups of up to four performers, while a package such as the VocoPro UHF-8800 8-Channel Wireless Microphone System can accommodate up to eight people. The VocoPro package also features optional mic stands for a complete stage set up right out of the box.
Once you decide how many mics you may need, you will want to check out the range each the various microphones have. This is important because it gives you a clear picture of how much freedom you have to move around the venue while still being clearly picked up by a receiver. With many microphone systems, it is easy to get at least 150 or more feet operating range. That number goes up as your equipment gets more complex, so knowing the amount of space you are typically going to need will definitely make your decision a lot easier.
Handheld microphone wireless systems are a great tool for any touring band or sound technician. By taking the cable out of the equation, you can minimize your set up time and maximize the performing space, allowing you to put on your best show every night.
