The Sennheiser EW 172 G3, carries over the benefits of their wireless microphone technology but tweaked for guitarists to enjoy.

Notable guitar friendly features include a guitar tuner, equalizer, and cable emulator.

The guitar tuner feature by itself can replace an entire pedal, while the 5-band EQ and cable emulator allows you to better fine tune your sound, ideal for those who want more control over the resulting sound.

Automatic frequency scan and wireless synchronization (via infrared) make setup quick and convenient, while the "Auto-Lock" feature prevents you from making accidental changes to your settings when performing.

Signal reliability is improved by automatic frequency scan and its true diversity reception (dual antenna).

The SK100 G3 bodypack transmitter features RF mute, charging contacts and has its own easy to read graphic display.
