Excellent add on to our sound gears.

Easy to setup and use. Vocalists can still use their favorite mics without wire now. Quality is excellent!


Great Wireless

By Dr Dimento

from Mercer, PA

This is the perfect solution! You have the mic you like and you don't want to give it up for some lousy mic in order to go wireless. NO PROBLEM - just plug this puppy into your Shure SM58 or other great mic and plug the base into you feed channel, and bingo, You're Wireless with YOUR MIC! The squelch works great and the fine tuning allows crystal clear results. I use it in DJ/DK, Audio/Visual, and Recording Studio. Will be getting two more!


That's the ticket!

Just bought this little dandy, and I LOVE it! Used it for a DJ gig just last night with my Shure SM58, and I am impressed. Small transmitter size, clear strong signal even from across the hall, and one AAA battery lasted for 6 hours continuously.


OK ... BUT, Sound is Suspect

See all my reviews

I own this and, when I first ordered, had HIGH HOPES it would "fix" one of my onstage problems (too many wires all over the place). It came in and I've used it for a number of live shows. Basically, I'm not that impressed. I run a Beta 58 through a TC Helicon VoiceLive ... into the sound board. The quality is NOT what I suspected. I've gone back to a strait (wired) configuration to get my "original" high-quality vocal sound back. This may be OK for speaking type gigs ... but lead vocalists beware - this thing doesn't cut it from a quality standpoint.


This is a great unit IF:

1) you have a decent microphone to begin with, 2) you are sharp enough to use quality batteries and carry several extra, 3) you understand that ANYTHING cordless is subject to interference from a variety of sources and, 4) you spend some time with the unit to become familiar with it before using it.This thing works absolutely great with a Sennheiser 835.

This works on everything! Dynamic, condensers, and make wireless mics even more wireless! I am a drummer. I used these on my overheads. They are perfect!!!


This is great!!

By JeffZeppelin

I just bought the WMS 40 Snap on last week and it is totally awesome. No noise, great range, and very easy to use. The best feature is that you can use any mic with a XLR connection in this system. No more stuck with the junk mic that you get with a lot of wireless systems. You gotta get it to believe it!
