Overview

The Concert 88 Wireless Series by Samson is a professional wireless system designed for music and other presentations where speaker/vocalist freedom is a must.

The frequency-agile Concert 88 Handheld allows for up to 16 systems to operate simultaneously across two frequency bands with up to 300' separating the receiver and transmitter. At the core of the system is the CR88 Wireless Receiver. Featuring a true diversity design, the CR88 minimizes signal dropouts during performance. If a dropout does occur, the CR88's tone key and auto mute functions eliminate any background noise until the signal is restored.

CR88 Receiver
The CR88 receiver's front panel provides a Select button for auto syncing receiver and transmitter channels via an infrared signal. The panel also features a 7-segment Channel LED, Volume knob, Power button, two tuned antennas, as well as Audio and Ready indicators, for optimal functionality and monitoring. Balanced XLR and 1/4" outputs can be found on the receiver's back panel.

CR88 Receiver Panel
The Concert 88 Handheld features the CH88 Handheld Transmitter with a Q6 Dynamic Microphone capsule. The transmitter, which can operate for up to eight hours on two AA batteries, is engineered to the finest detail to provide the ultimate in sound reproduction.

Concert 88 HH Transmitter
With Samson's Concert 88 Handheld Wireless System, advanced technology and total versatility combine to provide high-quality wireless performance wherever singers, business professionals, educators and others need it.

Great microphone for the money

By Jon the pro sound guy

from IL

Pros

  • Frequency Agile
  • Q7 Element Sounds Great

      Comments about Samson Concert 88 Wireless Handheld System with Q7 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

      I don't know what the first reviewer has as far as experience with wireless, but I personally have extensive experience with using wireless in permanent installations AND in touring rigs, and there is not a UHF microphone in this price range that can touch the Samson Concert 88. If the above reviewer is experiencing dropouts or interference, there's one of a couple things causing it... SOMEthing nearby is using or leaking RF on the same frequency or on a sympathetic frequency) or you have more than one system going and you have them on channels directly adjacent to each other so they are bleeding. I have 5 of these in the church I attend and they all get used weekley, and NONE of them drop out even though the receivers are 100 feet from the stage. Never a single dropout. I have 4 of these working in one local school's gym and I have 8 of them working in a different school's gym (the 8 are headsets used for musicals, but the wireless part is exactly the same, just a different mic element and they use a beltpack instead of a handheld transmitter) and they all work flawlessly, with no dropouts or interference. First reviewer has issue with something that's not the Samson's fault, I guarantee it.

      It's a drop out

      By RICHARD

      from Arkansas

      Comments about Samson Concert 88 Wireless Handheld System with Q7 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

      This mic drops out continuously regardless which channel is selected. When it drops out there is a noticeable pop. Mic starts loosing signal within 15 ft of receiver. Wouldn't buy it again.

        Comments about Samson Concert 88 Wireless Handheld System with Q7 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

        Ive been running sound professionally for several decades and recently bought a few of these and so far so good after a month of small shows. for all you thumb suckers that are just cutting youre teeth in the biz READ DUH MANUAL...really read..don't rely on youtube or people that may mislead you.

        I agree with the reviewer below where low RF signals from other devices can cause popping or loss of signal. I would definitely scout out to find that device causing you greef.I have a pre recorded message to turn off cell phones devices etc before every show so it doesn't interfere with the wireless systems. at the arena shows we use all shure Axient Wireless for the main singers and hands down shure Axient is the best wireless systems out there but are very expensive. you must realize you get what you pay for in anything you buy. cheap wireless systems have gotten better over the years but most systems out there are still dealing with the age old problem 'COMPANDING' . good speed as john malkolvich in the movie RED says : how many times do I have to tell you: satilites, cell phones ,chips,the web,the net the dentist..

        Comments about Samson Concert 88 Wireless Handheld System with Q7 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

        This product is perfect for what I use it for. My band gigs around town fairly often and I was looking for an entry level, decently priced wireless system for our main vocalist. This product is exactly what I wanted and expected. Samson has proven to be a good quality brand and I have yet to have any issues with drop outs or latency. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a budget wireless system that gets the job done.

        meh

        By Peter Johann Band

        from Allentown, PA

        Comments about Samson Concert 88 Wireless Handheld System with Q7 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

        with very minimal EQ action it sounds good, sm57 good. The housing is pretty solid. It was an easy setup. Has a decent range (have been over 50 feet from receiver and there was no lag or loss of signal)

        HOWEVER...It pops at random. Close to the receiver, far from the receiver, unobstructed from the receiver, people in-between the mic and receiver, it doesn't matter. It happens for no reason.

        I am on the fence about recommending it because of this feature.
