Really plug & play!

cutedaddy, 04.10.2017
My home is about 10x10m. and i haven't found a spot where the signal is interrupted or weak. Haven't really tested how far away i can go before the signal becomes insufficient to maintain connection, but on my 10x10m. studio, also with some obstacles in the path, receiver and transmitter seem to maintain a robust connection.
This would suggest the module is perfect for gig situations also. In my case at least, i have never run into a situation where on-stage distances exceed the size of my home. So unless other band members or PA-components make use of the same frequency band, the module will work equally well in a performance setting.

Soundwise i hear no difference between wired or wireless playing, so from that point of view i would say the product is excellent for its purpose.

But what really got me enthusiastic, is the fact it is really plug-n-play: unboxing the WMS40 litterally took longer than getting it connected and working. Just plug the receiver on your amp's input, plug the transmitter into your instrument output (bass guitar in my case), switch everything on and that's it! Oh, right, i had to put the included battery in the transmitter... but all 'n all it took me about 5 minutes to unpack, but just two minutes to start playing!

I haven't had any experience with other wireless modules, so i wouldn't know how it compares, but it delivers everything i expected and everything i need.

The transmitter ('body-pack') is nice and compact, guitar and bass players can clip it right onto their strap without impeding freedom of movement, you hardly notice it's there. This was important to me, as i don't like to bother messing around with cords and connectors every time i pick up my bass. It's on the front part of the strap, the cable runs to the front strap bolt, then behind the guitar body to the rear strap bolt and straight into the guitar's input. This means it stays on the guitar instead of on the musician, which makes picking up the instrument and starting to play very covenient. I pick it up, throw the strap over my head, and hit four switches: the on/off switch on the transmitter, the one on the receiver, the one on my bass combo, and finally the master volume on the combo. Everything else just stays in place and ready to go.
Really very happy, free to walk around the house or sit on the balcony, never trip on the cord again or break any input sockets by tripping on the cord.

Used it for about two weeks now, about 20-30 minutes a day, still on the original penlight in the body pack. Haven't found any drawbacks really.

In my opinion this one is to be recommended without any reserve. Happy!

Update 16.10.2017: After over a month of daily use, the original penlight is still in the body pack. Amazing. I had expected the price to pay for going wireless would be my messing w/batteries every couple days. With this device, not so!

Excellent wireless set up.

maninblack, 21.05.2017
I bought this AKG unit, because I needed a replacement belt pack, and it was cheaper to but the whole set up from Thomann than it was to buy the transmitter separately. The belt pack runs on a single AA battery. Use an alkaline type, and change them for every gig. I have found they will do about 3 -6 hours, but if you change them every gig there is no chance of it going dead during a performance. If you use rechargeable batteries be aware that they go flat very suddenly, so the time from the battery warning lighting up to the sound going off may only be a matter of minutes!

The clip to attach the unit to a belt or strap can be prone to cracking if it is clipped and un-clipped from the transmitter too many time, so leave it attached to the unit. The base station is mains powered and comes with a suitable main adapter. The input is set via a level control on the front of the unit which shows a green LED when the belt pack is turned on, and shows a red LED if the signal is too high. Try to avoid this as a digital over load distortion is very harsh. The aerial folds down to avoid damage when travelling. The out put is via a 6mm trs jack on the rear panel, which will accept trs balanced jacks, or a 1/4 unbalanced jack with a lower output. I have used both at times, and the sound is excellent. There is very little noise or hiss from this unit, and I have never been troubled by radio interference from Taxis passing by outside. I have used it with both the supplied cable to attach an instrument, and with the AKG headset, so becoming a wireless mic set up. The unit will supply the phantom power to the AKG headset.

AKG make quality gear I can rely on.
