Overview

The Shure ULXP24/BETA87A Handheld Wireless Microphone System includes the ULX2 Handheld Transmitter fitted with the Beta 87A Microphone capsule, and the ULXP4 Diversity Receiver. Shure ULX Standard UHF systems represent a breakthrough in performance and price for both working musicians and professional sound installers. ULX Professional systems offer more advanced features and controls, including lockable settings and group scan function. Over 1400 selectable, pre-programmed frequencies are available, and Automatic Frequency Selection provides a straight shot to a clear channel.

ULXP4 Wireless Diversity Receiver

The expanded feature set of the ULXP4 wireless receiver, with advanced settings and controls including lockable settings and group scan, offers a direct path to full, clear audio signals. The ULXP4 offers an exceptional value in both performance and price, for both working musicians and sound installers.

ULX2 Handheld Transmitter

The ULX2 Handheld Transmitter has a 3-segment battery fuel guage, Backlit LCD shows group and channel, Frequency and power settings, and Control lockout.

Beta 87A Vocal Microphone

The Shure Beta 87A is a premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone with exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability. Used for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications, the Beta 87A combines superb performance with the ruggedness needed for touring and field production.

The Beta 87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the "boomy" sound often associated with close pick-up. The characteristic Shure presence rise brightens the upper midrange. The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. The Beta 87A operates on phantom power.

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.

Pretty Awesome Mic

By Angel Navarrete

from el paso, tx

Hands down, one of the greatest wireless mics I have worked with. I use three of these bad boys at church and all I can say is wow. All you need is a little bit of equalization and bam! I use to run three Shure beta 87A but then went wireless and loved it. The system is real easy to set up and the sound it has is just clean, crisp and beautiful. If you ever go wireless, don't think twice about these mics because they are awesome.

Great Shure quality

By Russ

from tallahassee, fl

This is a great quality Shure mic, just what you'd expect from the company. With 1400 frequencies to choose from, it's not hard to get around any local interference. It's a bit pricey, but worth the cost when compared to the problems associated with cheaper wireless units.
