The BLX14R/B98 Instrument Wireless System with Beta 98H/C Mic from Shure includes a BLX1 bodypack transmitter, a BLX4R single-channel rackmountable receiver, and a Beta 98H/C microphone. It is designed for use with saxophones, woodwinds, and brass instruments, as well as for percussion. The system is set up for Shure's M17 frequency band and operates from 662 to 686 MHz.
The BLX4R receiver has a front-panel dual-colour LED status indicator that glows green for normal levels and red when clipping for fast metering. It has both an XLR and 1/4" instrument output for connecting your instrument to a variety of equipment such as mixing boards or PA systems. The one-touch QuickScan feature automatically tunes the receiver to the clearest channel available and displays it on the front-panel LCD screen to allow you to tune the transmitter. The unit can be rackmounted with the included rackmount kit. The BLX1 is powered by two included AA batteries for up to 14 hours. The system has a 300' line-of-sight range of operation.
The Beta98H/C mic has a 10' flexible cable as well as a gooseneck with ratcheting swivel joint that allows for a variety of placement options. Its clip is designed to clamp onto the bell of your sax, woodwind, or brass instrument, or on the rim of your percussion instrument. It can handle an SPL of up to 155 dB, making it well suited for the volume levels of most brass, woodwind, or percussion instruments.
