I've been searching for a wireless system that wasn't too expensive but delivered great sound quality. I didn't need fancy lights and enough channels for a symphony orchestra. I just wanted to be free from my guitar chord and not sound like I'm coming through a CB radio.I once used a friend's old Nady VHF101. But that gave my tone an artificial compressed quality and sounded a little distorted on clean tones. Still, I liked the freedom. So I ordered myself a Shure PG14. But that reduced my signal level significantly enough to lessen the 'crunch' effect of hitting the amp input hard.Finally, I tried this AKG WMS 40 PRO. With a bit of time spent adjusting the transmitter and receiver gains, I found a unity setting that matched the sound of my cable. And it was much easier than I had expected.I tweaked it while paying attention to subtle touch responses. The AKG really sounds very very close to the cable. I was A/B comparing them very anal retentively and I could hardly tell any difference. And the wireless signal is actually quieter.The only downside I can foresee is the lack of a channel selector. If you get interference on your one channel, you're out of luck. Hasn't been a problem yet, though.

I had this for about 7 months, and at first it worked good, But If killed my low end, Gave me a horrible feedback noise, even turning the volume down on the unit didn't help it, it just killed my tone more. And i go a little nuts on stage at times, and it would just stop working. But i would say the worst thing about this is the cord it comes with, the input is completely broken.I do not recommend getting this!

Good Stuff

By Rizz-dxNSe

from Hatfield, PA

I play in a band that plays from small rooms to Big stages. This wireless hasn't let me down yet. I still swear that I get a better sound when using this wireless compared to using a regular cord. Very strong sound, no loss that I've ever noticed. Once you get the gain setting to where you want it, the wireless sounds BEAUTIFUL, and the battery lasts very long. For the money, this is a great wireless system, best I've used so far in 20yrs of playing.

Who says this thing sucks tone?

By Anti-tonefreaks

from LA, California

It has worked perfectly fine since day 1. Easy to use, awesome features (AA battery that lasts forever!) and great sound. It doesn't change my sound at all. I've been playing guitar since 1982. At this point I could say I know a few things. Tone loss? Learn how to play guitar.

buy an extra cable 1st!

By Volatile J

from Sacramento, CA

Great range! This unit does not cut out but it does change your tone a bit. You'll have to adjust your sound some to compensate but no big deal. Just buy an extra cable for the body pack. The one it comes with is absolute garbage and mine was shorting out right out of the box! But other than that mine works great with no other problems and my band plays about 2 shows a month at many different venues.

Not too bad...

By Axe Wielding Maniac

from Nowhere, Kansas

See all my reviews

Compared to other budget wireless gear, not all that bad. Lightweight, easy to use, easy on batteries, lets you know when you have good signal, and not too complicated. Excellent tone, no signal loss whatsoever. All good there. Problems: range is EASILY effected by receiver height etc., which poses a bit of a problem, since mine is mounted on my pedalboard. Only one frequency, although I haven't had any interference yet. Overall, not bad, especially for the money.

Makes noise - sucks tone

By Tripwire-ZVjZc

from New, New Hampshire

See all my reviews

I bought this hoping for a cheap solution for a replacement to my high end Nady that died after many years of use. The AKG sucks tone and the antenna makes noise when you move. Makes it useless to anyone serious about tone and quality.

very very very happy with it

By rocker427

from maryland

I just got this item today in the mail, it works wonderfully, my frist wireless system, im so excited. No more chord, freedom! lol, it works great, simple to use, plugged right in, not gig tested but i mean seriously, if you have no wireless experience buy this, its so easy to opperate, optional mute button on the transmitter, very cool, super small, if your buying a neotech pouch to hold it thats a good idea, but apparently it has a strong metal clip on the back, which is nice, displays work well, two minutes and i was runnning around the house playing, all in all a great product, very happy, blows me away, buy it! Works on one double a battery for like thirty hours, i mean honestly, no feedback, EXCEPT, when i was playing with the metal distortion on i got a little feedback just from moving around, not the product just high gain output, dont overlook that, its just the gain, your fine, trust me its great, have fun!

Amazing

By swinny08

from IL

This baby is the best wireless guitar system and also with a great price. You can even adjust the tone with the volume knob to the tone of your choice. It still picks up reception from around 100 yds away (I was walking down my road) and it still sounded great in the tone. This is a great product for a great price. You will not be disappointed.

Looks nice but makes sound when you move and tone loss is there. Not for picky people who want super high quality stuff. I sent it back.

I LOVE IT!!!

By Tyler Nebeker

from Utah

This system is incredible! I feel like I stole the worth of value from AKG. They priced this unit WAAAYYY too low for the quality. Very simple to use, and very self-explanatory. Mess with the volume on the receiver a bit and the feed-back disappears.If you get to close, it will give you feed-back, but that's the same with any other unit you buy. Even hard-wired you'll get feed-back a lot if you're too close.I say buy this, and the Neotech pouch. I did and for just under $200 altogether, I can do triple guitar spins, jump off drum raisers, and anything else without the worry that I'll trip on a cable! I can't say how great this is! It'll be one of the best decisions you make as a musician.BUY IT!!!

Budget Wireless a HIT!

By PVinKC

from Kansas City, MO USA

See all my reviews

My band "RiverGard" plays and tours all over the mid-west and I needed a wireless that could handle the rigors of 'the road' while providing a quality of sound equal to that of a cord. This little unit delivered in spades!It is crucial in Country music to make sure you get the subtle touch response, bell-tones and harmonics that you generally only get with a cord. This one does that with some standard basic tweaking of the gain on both the receiver and transmitter. A killer wireless that won't let you down. I recommend this to everyone!

This budget wireless is a hit

By PVinKC

from Kansas City, MO USA

See all my reviews

I've had just about every wireless on the market over the years. This time around I just needed to get something fairly inexpensive that did a good job for mostly small to medium-size venues. This AKG Wireless is JUST what the doctor ordered!I have only used it a couple of times but it's still running on the battery that came with it and the signal is strong and believe it or not I took it out of the box and hooked it up and didn't have to tweak the signal strength at all. It was prefect right away. I'm VERY impressed. Only reason I didn't give 5's for Features and Quality is because it's single channel.

This system rocks

By Teleman-vuoBL

I lead worship for young teens at my church on wednesday nights, and this is the wireless system that they use. I must say that I really like it. I like the fact that its small. I've played other systems that are bulkier, but you hardly notice it's there. This system makes my "Martin Custom X" sound amazing!

This Thing Is Great :-)

By Will O

from Bradford PA

See all my reviews

I got this a few weeks ago. I needed a wireless system that would give me the cordless freedom but also deliver quality sound. This system is awesome. I haven't had ANY problems with it yet and do not plan on it. It is also convenient that the transmitter runs on a double A for like a long time. It is supposed to work for like 11 hours, but I have not had to replace the battery yet. If you are looking for a low price, Good quality wireless system, I highly suggest The AKG WMS 40. You can't go wrong.
