BOSS has announced the WL series, which they describe as a new line of high-quality wireless systems for guitar, bass, and other electronic instruments. This is the story in their own words...
Equipped with lightning-fast wireless technology newly developed by BOSS, the WL series delivers premium audio performance with ultra-low latency and rock-solid stability. Providing a plug-and-play experience with no aggravation or guesswork, the WL series makes it easy for players to bring wireless freedom to home, rehearsal, and small stage rigs.
The WL series offers exceptional sound quality with nearly effortless setup. The optimum wireless connection is set automatically when the transmitter and receiver components are docked, with no other user intervention required. A built-in rechargeable battery in the transmitter provides up to 12 hours of continuous play time.
Ultra-compact and affordable, the WL-20 Wireless System is as simple to use as a standard guitar cable. A small transmitter plugs into the instrument and a matching receiver plugs into a pedal or amp. The receiver includes cable tone simulation, which reproduces the natural capacitive effect of a 10-foot/3-meter guitar cable.
The WL-20L Wireless System is identical to the WL-20, but eliminates the cable tone simulation. This makes it a good choice for use with an acoustic/electric guitar with an onboard preamp, active pickups, or a line-level instrument such as Roland’s Aerophone.
With its stompbox-size footprint, the WL-50 Wireless System is ideally suited for pedalboards. It features an integrated transmitter dock, plus two cable tone simulation options. The receiver is powered via a PSA-series adapter or AA batteries. With adapter power, the receiver’s DC output can distribute power to one or more pedals.
The WL-T Wireless Transmitter can be purchased as a spare for use with a WL-20, WL-20L, or WL-50 system or the Katana-Air wireless guitar amp.
