Wireless System For Wind Instruments


Buying Choices

Samson has launched the AWX Wind Instrument Micro Transmitter UHF Wireless System, which they say offers true wireless freedom without the hassle of a beltpack or cable for live performance. Here's the story in their own words...

Featuring the world's smallest clip-on transmitter with a shockmounted microphone and adjustable gooseneck, this frequency-agile UHF wireless system provides high-definition sound and 300' of reliable wireless operation for saxophones, trumpets, trombones and other wind instruments.

ATX Wireless Micro Transmitter

Designed to be an extension of an instrument rather than a separate component, the ATX Wireless Micro Transmitter clips directly to the instrument's bell with no beltpack or cable necessary and allows performers to play live with confidence. It provides infrared sync to wirelessly match the receiver and transmitter frequency, easily accessible Gain and Mute controls, a battery life LED indicator and an 8-hour rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

HM60 Instrument Microphone

The ATX Wireless Micro Transmitter features a HM60 condenser microphone with 3-point halo isolation mount to minimize any noise caused by mechanical vibration. The mic capsule offers a supercardioid pickup pattern that handles up to 125dB SPL, ideal for handling the sudden attack of wind instruments. The HM60 also offers an 8.5" adjustable gooseneck (with P3 connector) for optimal mic placement in front of an instrument's bell.

Frequency-agile Operation

Offering frequency-agile operation, the system's rack mountable CR99 Wireless Receiver provides 80 selectable channels for reliable performance anywhere. The receiver's True RF Diversity design minimizes dropouts, while tone key technology prevents unwanted noise when the transmitter is off or out of range.
