OVERVIEW

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.

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.

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

This wireless instrument system is definitely an incredible value. It definitely beats comparable systems that cost a lot more.

It's pretty much plug and play, and out of the box I was able to get all the hardware set up in five minutes, and another five to tweak settings.
I plug the receiver into my pedalboard and run the volume full on the receiver, and adjust the transmitter's AF level until there's no AF clipping even when I play as hard as possible.

My tone is exactly the same as when I'm using an instrument cable, but that's probably because I'm using the same instrument cable to connect the receiver to my pedalboard. I was happy with my tone, but I wanted freedom to move. I haven't experienced any interference while using this at church(with lots of wireless mics), in the studio, and while walking through various parts of my home for fun.

The receiver is in a nice metal housing and seems very solid. The transmitter is made of plastic but it feels like a high quality plastic,is nice and light, and is equipped with nice belt clip. I will soon be investing in a holder for it to attach to my strap, A little extra care will definitely keep things working.

I personally like the look of both the receiver and transmitter. Sleek and simple.

My only minor issue is that it only has one fixed frequency, and only three variations to choose from. I was well aware of this when I purchased it, and it's not a problem for me, but will definitely be a problem for people who want to use more than three of this system at once.

Overall, I think this is a great system for people who are just getting into the wireless field and don't wanna break the bank, as well as for experienced and professional players who may need something lighter for smaller venues.

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...

              Best wireless acoustic guitar pack that I have used for the money. This is my second one. Now have A and C. My first one is still going strong after 2 years. Just make sure you buy different frequency units - A, B or C if you buy multiples of these wireless systems. Otherwise they will conflict with each other.

              Decent sound. High end is compressed, need to turn up treble to equalize. The power supply cable is short and a 12volt which is inconvenient if you want to run pedals through it.

                  Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Instrument Wireless System:

                  Made the mistake of using 2 units. Both units use the same channel and couldn't cope with being used together. System static if the mics are turned to off, needed to have one muted in order to stop. Having one muted and the other on, was simply painful. Sound quality was acceptable 70% of the time. Even removing the second mic and receiver, the sound quality was unreliable at best. May be useful in armature use as a quick plug backup.
