Twice the freedom

Shure's BLX family of wireless systems is designed to set you free onstage. The BLX288/B58 package includes two Beta 58A wireless microphones and the BLX88 dual-channel receiver, giving two vocalists freedom of movement and Shure sound quality.

Simple setup

Shure's QuickScan technology makes it simple to set up the BLX288/B58's transmitter and receiver. Press the Group button on one receiver channel and it scans for the clearest group and channel. Then just set a transmitter to the same group and channel settings. Repeat the process for the other channel and transmitter and you're ready to go. The Groups and Channels can also be set manually. You can run up to 12 systems on the same frequency band simultaneously depending on channel availability and RF environment.

Useful features

The BLX288 receiver offers XLR and 1/4" outputs to connect to your PA or other amplification. With an operating range of up to 300 feet, two vocalists will have ample room to roam the stage. The system's BLX2/B58 transmitters feature Shure's Beta 58A microphone capsules, long recognized as vocal mic that excels in high-volume situations because it offers superior noise rejection and a shaped frequency response that reduces bass to control proximity effect. The transmitters include a gain control, on/off switch, and a power/battery status LED indicator light. Two AA batteries give you up to 14 hours of running time.

When considering a wireless system, you'll want to pick the frequency band with the least interference from local TV stations. Shure's Wireless Frequency Finder will show you the TV stations in your area, along with a list of recommended channels. Choose the frequency band that gives you the most open channels.

Features

Overview: The Shure BLX288/B58 Dual Channel Handheld Wireless Microphone System consists of the BLX88 Dual Channel Wireless Receiver, and two Beta 58A Handheld Microphones, each with a built-in BLX2 transmitter. You can operate up to 12 compatible systems per frequency band (depending upon your region). The system operates on the H11 frequency band (572 to 596MHz), and has a transmitting range of approximately 300 feet.

BLX88: The BLX88 Dual Wireless Receiver features one-touch QuickScan frequency selection to help you find the best open frequency for less interference. You can also manually change the group and channel assignments, if needed. It has dual XLR mic outputs, as well as dual 1/4" instrument-level output jacks. The BLX88 is simple to set up, and has a microprocessor-controlled internal diversity antenna system. Each channel has two LED indicators. The audio LED indicates the strength of the incoming signal, and glows green for normal and red for overload. The ready LED indicates the system is ready for use and receiving the transmitter signal. It is powered by the supplied 12-volt DC power supply.

Beta 58A Wireless Microphone: The Beta 58A is a high-output, dynamic handheld microphone for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording applications. The Beta 58A has a supercardioid polar pattern, and provides high gain before feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off-axis tone coloration. It is designed for close-up vocals, and can be handheld or mounted on a stand (using the supplied adjustable stand adapter). The Beta 58A can withstand rough handling, featuring a hardened steel mesh grille, and an advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes mechanical noise and vibration. The microphone system includes a 5/8" to 3/8" thread adapter, making it compatible with most microphone stands. The BLX2 transmitter is powered by 2 "AA" alkaline batteries (included), which provide approximately 14 hours of battery life. The LED indicator turns red to signify low battery with approximately 60 minutes of battery life remain. Optional rechargeable batteries can also be used. The BLX2 has independent group and channel buttons for easy setup.
