erikbojerik Posted September 16, 2005 Report Share Posted September 16, 2005 OK, I was inspired by Wyldbil's success with his wireless installation inside the guitar (here). I would like to do something similar, to wire the guts of ...something... into the control cavity of the guitar, and dispense with the output jack. But I couldn't help thinking that wireless transmission has come a long way since the Nady 201 (and presumably gotten smaller). So after searching PG (the DIY stompbox forum is down just now), I found some suggestions to use clip-on mic systems (just clip off the mic and wire the transmitter into the guitar), or even to use the guts of a wireless mic (like the Shure SM87). Has anyone actually tried this? I would not want stuff like in-line compression etc etc. Then I went Googling and found tons of tiny stuff for video. But I found much less for audio, and most of what I did find seemed a bit large for stuffing inside a guitar body. Also, most of the audio transmitters were coupled with video transmission systems which made me suspicious of the sound quality (and who wants to see the inside of the guitar anyway? ). The Shure ULX-1 beltpack looks nice and gets good reviews (Shure ULX-1) but it has all kinds of bells & whistles I could do without (LCD screen w/ buttons, etc), and all I really need is the guts of the transmitter (i.e. the OEM version...). And I want it inside the guitar, not outside. Does anyone have any leads to tiny wireless audio transmitters? Would such a system work equally well for passive & active circuits?
