Title: Combined Radio System for Guitar and Vocals - Does it exist?
Post by: thepicnicband on June 25, 2011, 06:47:56 pm
I've a clear idea of a gizmo in my head and have been searching around for one on the internet for some time now but can't find it. I'm sure someone must be making one but I just don't know what such a system is called so my search results seem to be either for voice or for guitar but not both.

I want a radio microphone system for both guitar and vocals - i.e. a small transmitter that one can pin to the strap or clothing with a jack that pugs into the guitar as well as a lightweight pinable microphone and transmitter. Both transmit to a single base unit that is plugged into amplification devices. I'm looking essentially for a guitarist/singer radio system that would allow free movement without getting tangled up in wires. I can find vocal systems and guitar systems but not one combined system mainly because when I search I get so many results for one or the other.

Anyone know what to look for here (search terms) or the name of such a system or better a specific system. I can't pay silly money but I'm sure something within most peoples' budgets that has been especially designed for the combination of guitar and voice must exist for singing guitar players out there? Any ideas?

That is a good question and not sure the combo wireless system exists. But there are plenty of solutions on both side of the fence for wireless mics and guitar solutions. Here are a couple and they should give you some ideas:

Here is one for either making me think if you get a unit with 2 channels you might be able to run both a guitar and voice through one reciever:
