Gold Coverage: (What’s This?)

AKG

Brilliant sound and ease-of-use at an unbeatable price/performance ratio.

The WMS 40 Mini instrumental systems features AKG’s unique HDAP (High Definition Audio Performance) technology ensures the best possible, most realistic sound at any time. The system includes an SR 40 MINI receiver, a PT 40 MINI pocket transmitter, a MKG L instrument cable, a universal power supply with US/UK/EU adapter, and one AA size dry battery.

The SR 40 Mini receiver provides three status LEDs indicating ON/OFF status, received signal strength (RF OK), and audio clipping (AF CLIP). The VOLUME control sets the level at the ¼" output jack. The supplied switched mode power supply operates on any AC voltage from 110 to 240 VAC and includes EU, UK, and US adapters.

The PT 40 Mini bodypack is probably the smallest and lightest transmitter in its class. A reliable mini XLR output allows you to connect every compatible AKG miniature microphone. A single AA size battery will do to power both the transmitter and a condenser microphone connected to it. Battery life of the transmitter is the same legendary "30 hours off a single AA battery" as for the WMS 40 models, reducing the need to replace batteries and thus saving real money in the long run.

Features

  • Wireless microphone system
  • Dynamic mic with cardioid polar pattern
  • Up to 30 hour playtime with one single AA battery
  • Plug & Play
  • Gain control on pocket transmitter
  • Compatible with all AKG MicroMics
  • Low battery indicator
  • Smallest and lightest bodypack transmitter in its class

I really try to take care of my cables, but lately I've been spending a fortune replacing them. I've thought about going to a wireless system, but I didn't want to settle for some cheap, crappy Nady, and I didn't want to spend a lot for a good one. I'm just a gigging bar musician, not a rock star. But when I saw that the WMS 40 Mini was manufactured by AKG, I took notice. I've owned many AKG products over the years and I figured they wouldn't put their name on something that was below their standards. I was right. This thing is fantastic! I can't believe you can get a UHF system at this price. I'm very picky about my sound, and you do have to spend a little time adjusting the input sensitivity and the output volume to get it just right, but then it's set and it sounds great. The transmitter clips onto my back pocket and the receiver sits on top of my Marshall half stack. I do run a cable from the receiver out to my Boss ME-50 multi-effects unit and a cable back to my amp, but I'm not tethered anymore. It's nice to be able to walk around the stage. Great sound, no dropouts, and a nice price. Get one before they realize their error and raise the price.

I am just not quite sure... I installed the unit on my pedal board, in my Studio, and started trying out the unit... Spent 25 or 30 minutes getting all of the "adjustments" set and NEVER got the unit to not exhibit some static and "scratchy pops"... Put my Nady 442 Gold back on the board and the sound was crystal clear... Put the AKG back on the pedal board and moved 5 to 8 foot away and things "cleared up"... It seemed that the AKG "added" highs - the sound was brittle and strident... I WILL KNOW MORE this weekend - I plan on using the AKG at a GIG, but I WILL have my Nady there as a back-up - just in case... I would NOT recommend this unit YET... Its a shame when 10 year old technology outperforms a current device...

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

It's great for the price. If you are a guitarist that doesn't jump around and stays pretty calm it will work perfect for you. I'm a jump and kick and flip out on stage guitarist. At practice I have no problems with it. If I'm wailing the unit will crack and loose signal. I think it is from the antenna rubbing and bouncing. Super small and lite wait. Very subtle tone change as opposed to cable. This can be adjusted at your amp. Overall satisfied, super low price.

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

When my 10-year-old AKG 720MHz guitar bug unit was starting to pick up interference from TV stations around the country (not all cities but more and more), I had to buy another unit. Looked at several units for over 350 and some higher, but found this unit. When I saw the price I was thinking could this be real? But since my previous unit was a single channel AKG (which I paid around 300 ten years ago) I decided to take a chance since I could return it within 30 days. I couldn't be happier as works great. No interference, no pops and no extraneous noise. Just quiet and great sound. The unit is built well and has with stood the rigors of the road (I do keep it in a road case) for this last month. No problems. Not sure why anyone would want to spend more money unless you think you'll need multiple channels, but so far I haven't needed any others.

    Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

    Overall this is a great product. I picked this unit up about 2 months ago on the night of a big gig just because I was tired of feeling like I was tied on a leash by my cables. I had this unit up and running out of the box in no more than five minutes and actually used it in that nights gig, its that simple to operate. Overall I can not tell any difference in tone of my amp from this wireless and I have not experienced any humming, buzzing, cracking, or popping with this unit like you do with many other cheaper wireless systems . At this point I have spent several hours comparing the tone with the wireless to the amp as well as the tone with my cables to the amp, and honestly there really isnt a difference whether using a distortion or clean channel. And if you can hear some really slight differences, some small tweaking of your mix should easily give you your desired tone when using this wireless. Bottom line if you can't afford some of the higher priced wireless systems, but want to be sure your getting great product in the lower price range.....this is a must buy!!!

        Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

        I can say that it works. And if you don't mind a LOT of noise, such as loud pops and static crackles, then you will enjoy the freedom it allows. It works at longer distances then you are likely to need gigging, but the noise makes it useless for performances.
        The sound reproduction is pretty good though. I mean it sounds similar to a direct plug in sound quality. It's that N O I S E! After a while it gets on your nerves.

          The set up instructions are in a language I do not understand. I tried to find instructions on AKG' s site, same manual that is in a language I cannot read. The set up looked simple do I set it up to my electric acoustic and got all kinds of popping and hissing. Will be sending it back.

              I tried this unit out for one night in my house. I experienced really loud random pops and scratching noises which made the unit unusable for me. Interestingly, the noises were present regardless of whether I was close or far from the base, whether I was in the same room or another, and with the remote unit on and off....so it didn't seem like an issue with proximity or interference. Others have experienced similar noises so my advice would be to consider another unit. I returned it and bought the audio-technica system 10 ATW-1101/G which has worked flawlessly in the same environment.
