F not even 100 a mega deal !!!

Toni K., 02.10.2011
I use this radio for my bass guitar.

OPERATION: The operation is really idiot-proof! All necessary accessories are included, the radio link is connected quickly. Means: The radio range is also very easy to use for amateurs.

FEATURES: The station is incredibly small, for what it does. On the transmitter is an "ON", an "OFF" and a "MUTE" switch. The latter, I think, would have been a good thing to omit. Finally, the mute switch also consumes battery, does not sound. So you can also use the OFF function. Also at the receiver is a not relevant volume control, which is however totally irrelevant, since volume is adjusted yes yes over the PA or the amplifier. But with both, one more thing than one is too little! Otherwise, there is not much to say: power supply and guitar cables are absolutely okay. With me there was not the whole time yet a single sending disturbance.

PROCESSING: The system is - as you are accustomed to AKG - great processing. The black color is very noble. How the radio circuit will prove itself over the years will be shown. The terminal on the transmitter is safe. There is no danger of demolition.

TOTAL: Although the radio range has only one frequency, which can be expected at a price of impertinently cheap 99EUR. Absolutely sufficient for smaller bands with a small budget. Finally, a great praise to Thomann: I have never received a package faster than with you!

Very good inexperienced alternative

derallemann, 27.12.2011
Have me the device recently added to the test, since my AKG WMS 450 pro unfortunately with the frequency band, which is used from 2015 for LTE.

To the test:
The receiver unit is robust and has a large on / off switch as well as a volume control and an antenna on the front side. A power supply for the power supply is supplied.
At the rear you will find an unsymetrical jack socket (6,3mm). Since most guitar amplifiers, preamplifiers or floorbuttons also have unbalanced inputs, this is no problem.

A 19 "installation kit is missing. Since the unit is not standard, you probably need to buy a special kit from the manufacturer, or make a different arrangement.

The transmission unit (Bodypack) is made of robust plastic and very light. With the included battery (1 x 1.5V AA) the unit can be operated for several hours (tested). There is a squelch control in the battery compartment, which can be used to adjust the transmission power (this is set to the lowest setting and should be adjusted with the receiver unit)

Unlike the transmitter of the WMS 450 pro, the transmitter of the WMS 40 mini has no display, but only one LED which indicates the functionality (ON / OFF), which is quite sufficient for the operation.

The device itself has only one radio channel, but can be purchased with different frequencies. If you are working on the stage with several radio tracks, you should therefore look at the frequency bands of the existing radio tracks before purchase and buy a device that matches the frequencies of the existing devices (free channel).

Test the device in live mode:
I've tested the unit on several live shows together with 6 more tuned radio tracks (from Sennheiser and Shure). The result was surprising. I had despite the non-diversity (only one antenna at the receiver) no radio exponents. The transmission of the signal was therefore very stable. If the GIG I could not detect any signal noise (Distance between sender and receiver was between 1 and 6m)

A short summary of my test:
The device does exactly what it is supposed to do. The processing of transmitter and receiver are good and solid. The receiver can be operated with an AA battery for several hours.
Once set correctly, the signal is clean and no rushing occurs. (Tested with A-guitar and active PU as well as electric guitar with passive PU)
The only drawback is the lack of a 19 "installation kit, which can be tasted because of the very good price but in the operation of several systems the frequencies should be tuned necessarily, as otherwise undesirable noise.
Buy recommendation!
