OVERVIEW

120dB dynamic capability and 250 feet transmitting distance.

With the Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless system you get a great value in a full-featured, single-channel UHF wireless mic system with interference-free operation in any application or locale on select UHF frequencies within separate bands 902-928 and 944-952 MHz.

The half-rack designed UHF-4 receiver features Nady's proprietary companding circuitry to give it a 120dB dynamic range for clear, natural sound, and a Tone Squelch for locking out potential interference. It also features DigiTRU Diversity for maximum range and dropout protection, full LED indicators, unbalanced and balanced outputs, and special circuitry for noiseless transmitter On/Off switching.

The wireless microphone system's included UB-4 transmitter gives you the option to chose from instrument (GT), headworn (HM), and lavalier (LT) mic operating modes, and includes an Off/Standby/On switch which allows convenient audio muting while the transmitter is in use. A status LED indicator flashes once to let you know it's on while it stays steady when your battery is going low. It has a locking 3.5mm mini-jack that provides you with a secure connection for your removable mic or instrument cable, and an easily accessible input level adjust controller for optimum sound in HM and LT modes.

The UH-4 hand-held microphone transmitter features the Nady DM -10D unidirectional neodymium dynamic cartridge for optimum true sound, maximum feedback rejection, and minimal handling noise
OFF/STANDBY/ON switch allows convenient audio muting while transmitter "ON"
Status LED indicator flashes once for unit "ON"; lights steady for low battery alert

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.

This unit is awesome!!! I got Ch. 11 and haven't had a single problem yet. I dropped it once, and it still works fine. I did go ahead and bought the 3 year warranty, since I read some of the reviews. ANYONE WITH TROUBLE WITH THE CLIP: SINCE IT'S A GUITAR SYSTEM, USE A RUBBER BAND TO HOLD IT ON (SEE ONE OF MY ADDED PICTURES). IF YOU WRAP THE RUBBER BAND AROUND THE UNIT AND HAVE IT GRIP THE BOTTOM OF THE CLIP, IT HOLDS THE TRANSMITTER IN PLACE VERY VERY WELL.
Public service announcement: THE PICTURED CABLE IS NOT INCLUDED!!! I have posted a picture of the top of the transmitter (since I couldn't find any on the internet) and the ends of the included cable. It is 1/4" to 3.5mm locking. The cord length is just under 4ft.
I use the unit on my acoustic guitar primarily, but it has worked with all of mine. I definitely would recommend this product to anyone looking for mid/high quality output (although it does mess with the EQ a little, the actual output is not distorted), especially for use at church. Battery life isn't great, but what do you expect?
Overall, great unit for the price. It gives you so much freedom. Great job Nady!!!

I was a bit nervous about buying a "budget" wireless unit because of the usual stereotypical poor quality. However, this unit seems great! Yes, it's made of plastic...but if you take care of it, it'll last. My body pack has already taken a few falls and is still working great. I put the receiver on top of my amp and connect it with a short patch cable. I must say, this thing sounds great! I've A/B'd it with a good quality cable and the only difference I've noticed is a bit less low-end when playing cleans, and the difference is rather subtle at that. When playing with distortion or overdrive (which I do a majority of the time), I can't notice a difference. Actually, I have fewer problems with noise and feedback when using the wireless instead of the cable. My friend tried it out with his guitar and rig and experienced the same thing. The range of this unit is awesome. Unless I'm in a very high interference area, I don't think I'll ever have signal issues. I haven't had the chance to gig with this unit yet, but I will definitely be using it for our next gig. The battery life has been pretty good, but I do recommend getting some rechargeable 9V batteries; probably cheaper in the long run.

On a side note, the metal coil at the base of the jack initially caused some noise when the cable moved. To fix this, I carefully unscrewed the jack and slid the metal coil out to the middle of the cable so it s not making contact with anything, then screwed the jack back tight. Since then the cable has been very quiet. I will probably remove the coil all together eventually, just haven t done so yet.

This is a great unit and is definitely worth the price. If you are looking for a budget wireless unit, this is definitely a very good option to consider. I have had no problems with it and plan to use it until it breaks, or until I upgrade to a higher end unit.

2 years and still going

Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

The only "dislike" I have about the system is that the transmitter FEELS like it could break easily. It kind of makes me scared at times that someone might step on it by mistake and it will shatter. But like I said above, it has been through several impacts and is still working fine :]

Oh, also, ESPECIALLY if you are an acoustic player, probably best to invest in some rechargeable 9V's and a charger since this thing does use up battery life fairly quickly.
I'm not exactly sure what kind of "feature" a wireless system can have beside doing its job, but I like the fact that it has both a balanced xlr output and a unblanaced ts output.The sound is not different in any sense as far as I can tell, and I have had no interference problems even in the presence of wireless mics, wireless in-ear monitors, and bunch of cellphones.I have tried using the wireless both before and after effect pedals and it can handle either fairly well, though I usually just place it before effect ince the pedals won't be walking around anytime soon xD
Like I said, this thing has lasted 2 years so far and has not broken down, and I have used it at least twice a week for about a 2 hour period each time.The little circular rubber-ish cap on top of the trasmitter's antenna fell off few weeks into use, but it didn't have any impact what so ever. (It was as if that part was just there for looks....)The cable that came with the system broke after about 4 months of use, but it is easily replaceable. All you need is a 1/4 to 1/8 connection.The receiver box feels very secure and sturdy when you hold it, though the transmitter feels as if it could break any moment. I've had the transmitter dropped or ran into a door a several times though, and it has not broken.
This is where this thing shines the most.I got the system for a great deal, and even if it's at the full price, I'd buy it again.The one I own has already survived 2 years and it's definitely paid for itself in those 2 years :]

    Best Wireless System Within $100 of It's Price!

    By nathanzm

    from Boston, MA

    Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

    Got this wireless about a month ago and it's still running strong! Probably the best wireless system for the money and probably even better than wirelesses 100 bucks more than it. It really doesn't effect your tone at all (almost no noise, etc.). If you blind folded someone, they would not be able to tell the difference in sound between pluggin in direct or with the wireless.The only complaints I have is for the transmitter: the clip on it is terrible and really doesn't hold well... So I would put it in a good pocket on the back of your pants and clip it in that way or something, just make sure it's not too loose or too tight... I WOULD NOT attach this to a guitar strap... Also, sometimes, if you're not playing anything and you're using heavy distortion and you move, you can hear a small cackle sound for about a second, but that really is not a problem, because it rarely happens and it's not really that noticeable (it's inaudible while playing too). Otherwise it's great except for these aspects and that it's fragile and can break easy, so treat it well! This thing has a pretty large range (even through walls, but after a certain distance, there is a delay, but who's gonna be playing through multiple walls?! xD). And I believe the battery lasts longer than it says it does, because I've had over 9 hours use on a USED BATTERY and it's still running pretty strong.But yea, I definitely recommend this wireless system. I have absolutely no regrets! =D

    Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

    Great little unit.
    This wireless transmitter / receiver pair is priced right. Bought one for my son's guitar to use at church and he flat loves it. He enjoyed the freedom at practice, just to get around from musician to musician. Plus he loves the fact that he's not tethered to one spot. Mic is next.

    This one is for the fiddle player on the worship team. Mainly we wanted to boost his signal and the xlr balanced out is just great to go into the house board from the stage.

    The standby on the transmitter is a great mute to kill the signal until needed. Then on the receiver there is a handy volume giving the abilit from the stage to adjust signal to the board. Just all around a good system.

    We did purchase the three year extended warranty, which we rarely do, due to the great features, no questions asked policy, pays shipping both ways. And even has a lemon clause after four times it would assist getting a different system. So, not expecting to use it, but this is a high possibility item of malfunction. You might even notice the number of USED systems MF has offered, gives you a hint that there can be problems. Don't worry, be happy!

    Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

    I just purchased this for my son and, he gave it a try last night. Great sound, No dropouts even at a long distance. I owned a Nady wireless several years ago it had a metal belt clip that once it got bent or sprung there was no fixing it. This unit is made of plastic and, should not have this problem. I know that plastic is not as durbale as metal but with care and good sense handling it should last a long time. Even if the clip would break there are pouches that the transmitter can be put in to either attach to your belt or guitar strap.

    seems ok so far , the reason for the lower rating is the plastic case , but I'm sure that has alot to do with value. It worked flawlessly , right out of the box !
    Great value , no more than the cost of a coule of good cords !

    Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

    I've owned 2 of these so far. Both worked perfectly. I'm going to buy the third soon. The second one added a slight compression to the signal, and actually helped my sound. 1st one got stolen, 2nd one my bass player is using. They cost less now than when they first came out !!!buy two (they're small) I thinking of getting another one to go between my keys and the back row, so I don't have to run a 30 foot line.

    Nady UHF-4 wireless

    By Gary Masinelli

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

    Overall, it is a good solid 7. It works very well for me. If it breaks, and it will, throw it away and decide on what your next purchase is. This is a throw away society you know. It will break because the plastic is just efficient enough to hold it together. I am not rough on my equipment so I hope it will last for a while. Would I purchase it again? Yes. I will change some of the design on this in hopes of keeping it together if it should accidentally drop to the floor and it will.
    What features, it does what it is supposed to do. It doesn't need any more features
    Again, it does what it is supposed to do, however, in a very cheap, and non quality way. You do get what you pay for but it does work well.
    It is a good value but be careful with it because of the value I listed above.

    Comments about Nady UHF-4 Guitar Wireless System:

    At this time, I have no certain dislikes about this product, since I have only used it once since I recently purchased it. Time will tell after I use it more, but I like everything about it at this time. I tend to take good care of all my equipment and I dont throw my equipment around or leave it in extreme temperature conditions. The unit comes with a one year warranty and Musicians Friend has a return policy of 45 days if you dont like it. You cant go wrong considering the price . I also use a Zoom GFX-5 processer and I have no signal or tone loss after passing through to the receiver, then to the processer, and then to the amp. I use a Peavy Chorus 212 amp and this set-up works great. The guitar I use most is a Fender American Standard Strat.
    I liked the locking plug on the transmitter to prevent accidental disconnections during performance.
    The receiver has a handy loop on the base to wrap the power chord around to also prevent accidental disconnections. There is a unbalanced output for guitar plugs and balanced for microphone use.
    The overall quality of the UHF-4 is very nice in appearance. The chord and plugs that connect the transmitter to the guitar seems to be good quality and there was no scratchy noise coming from the connections. The plug on the transmitter is screwed on to prevent accidental disconnects, I like this feature a lot.
    You get a decent, good performing wireless system for the money invested. The cost is very reasonable for the quality of the system.
