Professional quality wireless microphones

The perfect introduction to Shure engineering excellence, PG Wireless Microphones provide a complete vocal, guitar, presenter, headset and combo selection and feature many of the same durability and performance attributes of other Shure microphones at an unbeatable price.

What kinds of receivers are available with the PG Wireless Systems?

PG Wireless Microphones come with an Analog Wireless Receiver that provides improved linearity and frequency response. The receiver BLX is ready to perform right out of the box and is the clearest choice for performers who wish to unplug from the wire. Also available as rack mount, metal receiver and Dual Receiver.

How many musicians can use this system simultaneously?

Up to 12 compatible channels per group with group and channel scan for easy set-up.

What’s the difference between the old and the new “PG Wireless System”?

With the old PG Wireless System “PG” is the name for the microphones as well as for the receivers. With the new system, the name “PG” stands for the whole line of microphones in differentiation to SM and Beta microphones. The receivers name is “BLX”. This receiver is also part of SM and Beta Wireless Systems.

The new PG Wireless Systems come with the Analogue Wireless Receivers that provide improved linearity and frequency response as well as up to 12 compatible channels per frequency band with group and channel scan for easy set-up.
