Different types of wireless systems
Wireless systems are available for vocals (singers and speakers) and instruments (guitar, bass, and woodwinds) For this example I will pick the Shure BLX wireless systems, they are reliable, durable and priced right. A great example of a wireless mic for singers is the Shure BLX24r/SM58. If you are a guitar o bass player, you can go for the Shure BLX14R. Saxophone players can go with the Shure BLX14r/B98. Speakers and ministers can purchase the Shure BLX14R/MX53. Trainers and people who need their hands free can buy the Shure BLX14/PGA31 headworn mic.
How does a wireless microphone work?
Wireless microphones use radio frequencies to work. These radio signals are similar to those used by FM radio stations. The transmitter sends the audio through the air to the receiver. The receiver is connected to the mixing console using a regular microphone cable. The Transmitter and the receiver must be tuned to the same radio frequency in order to work propertly.
VHF and UHF Frequency Bands
VHF stands for “Very High Frequency,” The good thing about the band is that the cost of the equipment is low. The bad is that there are a lot of wireless devices used on this band. Cordless telephones, remote control cars, walkie-talkies. A wireless microphone transmitting on this band might have dropouts and interference. UHF stands for "Ultra High Frequency" this is the preferred frequency band for wireless microphone systems, you will pay more for wireless microphones in this frequency band, but it is worth every penny. We advise you to buy a UHF microphone when using several wireless microphones, or in big cities with a lot of wireless activity.
