Sennheiser XSW 72 Instrument Set Wireless Guitar System

The Sennheiser XSW 72 is a wireless system designed for use in small to medium size venues, which cover most of the venues that guitarists play in, including bars, coffee shops, churches and more.

The transmitter comes in the form of a body pack with Sennheiser’s locking cable that secures the connection of your guitar and body pack and it runs on two AA batteries which give you up to 10 hours of operation.

The receiver gives you more control over the frequencies that you’ll be working with, so you can tune the wireless system to use quiet frequencies even in busy cities and venues.
