Shure BLX® wireless rack-mount instrument system provides a sound solution that will keep you feeling untethered when playing your instrument. Microphone clips on to your instrument and is connected to the bodypack transmitter, which can operate up to 300 feet away (line of sight) from the receiver. Professional quality and simple setup with an intuitive interface come together to create legendary audio performance right out of the box. These features and more make this wireless system ideal for brass, winds and percussion instruments.

The Shure BLX14R/B98 wireless microphone system communicates between the BLX4R receiver and the BLX1 bodypack transmitter. Rack mount receiver fits neatly into an existing setup or on its own. QuickScan frequency selection finds the best available frequency for the receiver and transmitter with just one touch at setup. In addition to fast frequency selection, this analog receiver delivers improved linearity and frequency response. LED indicators on the receiver display the status of audio levels so gain can be adjusted as needed. The rack mount kit is included, and the antennas are removable for quick antenna distribution.

Paired to the receiver is the BLX1 bodypack transmitter. Worn on a belt, this bodypack transmitter is lightweight and will go unnoticed by audiences and performers alike. With a battery life of up to 14 hours and an LED indicator for low battery level, this wireless system will last through even marathon performances and jam sessions. Functions such as group and channel selection and gain adjustment can be done right from the bodypack transmitter. The on/off switch is easily accessible and uses a toggle design, providing tactile indication when the transmitter is on.

Clip-on gooseneck microphone Beta 98H/C creates legendary audio for wind and percussion instruments. The clip-on clamp lets it attach securely to the bell of brass instruments and saxophones, or on the rim of percussion instruments. Mic is easily positioned with integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint, while a gooseneck angle brace provides extra security during especially active performances. To accommodate the sound environment on the instrument, the mic has a pickup pattern that provides high gain-before-feedback, a high maximum SPL, and an isolation shock-mount to reduce instrument key noise and other mechanical sounds.
