Shure has announced the introduction of the new GLX-D+ dual band wireless system, providing more than double the bandwidth of its predecessor in operating in both the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency spectrums and available in various configurations that are designed to meet the needs of musicians and presenters.

GLX-D+ is available in rack-mount, tabletop, and guitar pedal receiver options with a wide selection of lavalier, headset, and handheld microphone choices. Stated battery life is 12 hours of run time, with a quick-charge capability providing 1.5 hours of use from a 15-minute charge. In addition, the system offers multiple smart rechargeability options, with a new lithium-Ion SB904 battery that can be charged directly on the tabletop and half-rack receivers or through a USB-C connector on the transmitter.

“Equipped with our legendary Shure audio technology, GLX-D+ users are guaranteed to experience exceptional digital wireless audio that captures their tone and includes everything you need for rechargeability in the box,” states Mike Nagel, associate director of product management, Shure.

Engineered in a metal chassis that can be integrated into a pedalboard (9-volt DC power), the GLXD6+ digital wireless guitar pedal is designed to make it easier for guitarists and bassists to go wireless without compromising tone or complicating their rigs. The guitar pedal receiver includes a tuner and a new 1/4-inch input for when wired practice and performance are preferred. Players can switch between two or more transmitters linked to a single receiver for smoother on-stage transitions between instrumentation.

The GLX-D+ platform provides improved RF performance, antenna distribution, and automatic frequency management for up to 11 half-rack systems in typical environments (16 under optimal conditions). Separately available Frequency Manager (GLXD+FM) and directional antenna accessories are required.

“From modest concert halls and auditoriums to the largest global tours and stages – musicians, presenters, and houses of worship count on Shure wireless microphone systems to instill the confidence that their performances will be extraordinary,” says Eduardo Valdes, associate vice president of global marketing, Shure. “GLX-D+ provides an effortless setup, eliminating barriers to entry for those who want to take their first step on their wireless journey.”

The tabletop and rack mountable GLX-D+ systems are available with three handheld wireless microphone options, including the SM58, BETA 58A, and BETA 87A.
