I’m currently transitioning from guitar only to lead vocals with a band n keen to go wireless inc inears and mic - have been offered shure 58 wireless setup but unsure about frequency - status re ofcom etc - really appreciate advice.cheers
Licence free band in the uk is 863-865 MHz channel 69, anything else is either illegal or requires a licence unless your on digital 2.5 ghz
If you are set on a Shure mic then you will see a lot of the older slx and blx analogue systems for sale used with a variety of freq bands. Then you have glxd digital systems that use the 2.4 wifi band - if you scan for a new channel before a gig they work great but I found the range limit around 25m and have had to scan for a clear channel when the room had filled up for big gigs (500+) The more recent qlxd and slxd digital systems on a range of frequencies. I wouldn’t spend the extra for qlxd for a single mic. I have a couple of sennheiser 945 mics on their g3 systems that have never let me down and but I’m planning to add a couple of channels of Shure slxd systems this summer with beta58 as well and hopefully that will be an end to chasing reliable good sounding wireless. @maltingsaudio just out of interest,what wireless have you got for clients that require it?
@maltingsaudio Its on channel 30 606-648 - Other than the license challenge is this still okay with analog technology?If so what would be a reasonable guideline price?
@maltingsaudio - Im confused mate - my brand new G4 IEM system is on exactly same bandwidth sold from Studiocare https://studiocare.com/products/sennheiser-ew-iem-g4-gband ofcom shared ch38 https://www.ofcom.org.uk/manage-your-licence/radiocommunication-licences/pmse/pmse-technical-info/mics-monitors/sharedif ch38 is ok if licenced ..then based on your experience what would a s/h slx2 with a SM58 capsule and an SLX 4 receiver setup be worth ?
