    Building on the popularity of Nady’s MGT-16 UHF wireless system (introduced in 2010), several new models have been added to expand the system’s numerous applications and instrumentation. In addition to the MGT-16 plug-in system for guitar and bass, the new Micro Wireless (MW) Series now includes the MHT-16 (for brass and woodwinds), the WHM-16 headset system, and the Link-16 for microphones. All models are available with either the compact, portable “pedal style” MGT-16 receiver (powered by DC adapter or AA… View this post

Over its nearly forty years of service, the Wells Fargo Arena has had several sound reinforcement systems, all of which lacked power and were unintelligible to one degree or another. Recently that changed when the school raised funds for a whirlwind renovation project that resulted… View this post
