Description:

What is the Beta 98H/C best suited to?

It’s a premium instrument microphone with a flexible gooseneck and clip on clamp making it ideal for use with brass, percussion and woodwind instruments, either on stage or in the studio.

What receiver comes with the Beta Wireless Instrument System?

The Beta Wireless Instrument System comes with the Analog Wireless Receiver BLX4 that provides improved linearity and frequency responseThis is the range of frequencies, from the lowest to the highest, that a mic can pick up.Read moreGo to the glossary.

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. It’s 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.

Why internal antennas?

For ideal signal strength, antennas on a wireless system need to be set up in a certain way. The internal antennas on the BLX receiver are already set in this ideal way, offering up to 100 m operating range and optimal signal strength.

Additionally internal antennas cannot be broken during setup, use or transport.

Is the setup really that easy?

Yes, with one button you can start the group and channel scan, which gives you the best open frequencyThis is how many times a sound or radio wave oscillates in one second.Read moreGo to the glossary. Adjust the transmitter to the same channel and you’re ready to go.

What does “Linearity” mean?

The proportion between input signal of the transmitter and output signal of the receiver is always constant.

How does the BLX receiver perform compared to wired?

The frequency responseThis is the range of frequencies, from the lowest to the highest, that a mic can pick up.Read moreGo to the glossary of the wireless microphone is almost identical to the frequency responseThis is the range of frequencies, from the lowest to the highest, that a mic can pick up.Read moreGo to the glossary of a wired mic.
