By PSW Staff • January 9, 2009 The new AKG GuitarBug (GB 40) wireless transmitter for bass and guitar AKG has announced the introduction of the GuitarBug wireless transmitter for bass and guitar, the newest addition to the AKG WMS 40 Pro line of wireless systems. GuitarBug (model is GB 40) 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 GB 40 offers a user-friendly interface that has the ability to turn a guitar, bass, or portable keyboard into a wireless instrument. 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. A patented FlexxJack-Plug is an additional feature to allow for extended flexibility by matching all guitar outputs with an included long adapter jack. The FlexxJack 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. The GB 40 will be available as single version and as “guitar-set” version with a stationary receiver SR 40. For more information: AKG Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
