Convenient, clean and clutter-free, instrument wireless systems are changing the way musicians perform. Unplugging from the conventional way this equipment works, there is a wireless revolution taking place, shifting away from cables and more towards efficient technologies. So if you are looking to kick your play up a few notches, you’ve definitely come to the right place.
With a wide variety of options at your disposal, there are a few thing to take into consideration to help make your decision a bit easier. First, which type of instrument are you looking to play? While most wireless systems allow you to just attach the transmitter to your electric instrument and the receiver to your amp, some are better suited to specific instruments. Systems like the Audio-Technica ATW-701 700 Series UHF Guitar Wireless System and the Sony Digital Wireless Guitar Package are designed specifically for your guitar and its capabilities. On the other hand, the BLX14R/B98 Wireless Horn System and the GLX-D Wireless Vocal System, both from Shure, are better suited to brass and vocal performances respectively. Defining your specific needs will help you pare down your options considerably.
Quality is also a large focal point for musicians making the shift over to wireless. With major advances in technology though, wireless systems sound and perform as seamlessly as their wired equivalents. Using high-end parts that eliminate the need for cables, these instrument wireless systems effortlessly provide you with the sound you’re used to in a cleaner package.
As well, if you’re looking solely for accessories to enhance your wireless setup, you’ll also find them here. It’s an easy way to make your current equipment even better without having to invest in a whole new system.
Regardless of how you choose to improve your setup, cutting the cable is a great first step. It creates space on stage and lets you focus purely on the music. Once you start going wireless, you’ll soon find you want to go completely wire-free… there’s simply no going back.
