Shure GLX-D Digital Wireless Systems debuted at NAMM 2013 with traditional bodypack and handheld configurations, including vocal, headset, and presenter systems. The new pedal-board-mounted guitar receiver has a built-in chromatic instrument tuner with both strobe and needle tuning views to suit user preferences. The combined pedal tuner and receiver operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band. Additionally, the foot switch enables shifting between wireless display and tuner mode with the option to mute or pass the audio signal while tuning.
“The most important attribute of a wireless system is its audio quality. GLX-D’s digital wireless technology is transparent, capturing every nuance of a guitarist’s sound from the attack through the sustain,” said Erik Vaveris, Category Director for Wireless Products at Shure. “With a rugged metal construction, the GLXD6 Guitar Pedal receiver was designed to survive the abuse of the stage. And the tremendous cost savings of the wireless transmitter’s intelligent rechargeable battery make it the perfect system for a guitarist.”
GLX-D Digital Wireless Systems utilize Shure LINKFREQ Automatic Frequency Management, a technology that seamlessly analyzes the RF spectrum to determine the best available frequencies, and automatically switches both transmitter and receiver to new channels should problematic interference be identified. Additionally, each GLX-D transmitter is powered by an intelligent lithium-ion battery for up to 16 hours of continuous use at full charge and can be quickly recharged in 15 minutes for up to 1.5 hours of use.
