AKG have announced the introduction of the GB 40 Guitarbug
which they are describing as the world's smallest switchable wireless transmitter. Here's what they have to say about it:
The GuitarBug Transmitter provides superb audio quality and performance at a very competitive price. WMS 40 Pro is well known for it's miniature transmitters and quality sound and the introduction of the GuitarBug is the next generation of wireless transmitters.
GB 40 Flexx operates with a single AAA battery providing more than 11 hours of operation, offering the lowest operating cost in this class. The frequency response is optimized for guitar and bass and can be used for keyboards and all instruments with a jack plug. The patented FlexxJack-Plug is an additional feature to allow for extended flexibility by matching all guitar outputs with an included long adapter jack.
The GB 40 GuitarBug offers a user-friendly interface that has the ability to turn a guitar, bass, or portable keyboard into a wireless instrument. The FlexJack swivel jack plug will co-exist with any type of output jack and is spring loaded to hold the GB 40 securely against the instrument. In addition, the diminutive size of the GB 40 makes it virtually invisible and will not interrupt the musician's ability to effectively perform with the transmitter in place. Additionally, the GB 40 is placed on top of the instrument's output jack allowing the musician to easily control the noiseless on/mute/off switch and gain control.
The GB 40 Flexx will be available as single version and as "guitar-set" version with a stationary receiver SR 40 Flexx.
