This coming Tuesday, there will be a free, hands-on demonstration of Shure's latest wireless technology. Musicians, vocalists, performing artists or those just interested in the latest in wireless gear are encouraged to register for this free event, to be held at Soundcheck Nashville, 720 Cowan Street in Nashville. The demonstration will last all day from 9:00am until 5:00pm.
Unlike the vintage Shure wireless setup pictured here (my own personal setup from the 1970's), the equipment being featured is absolutely state-of-the-art. There are a few great Shure items being showcased. One is Shure's newest offering--the ground-breaking Axient Wireless System. This system makes the bold claim of being "beyond wireless".
Also on display, will be Shure's new PSM1000 Personal Monitoring System. Performing artists interested in the latest in "in-ear" wireless monitoring should have their curiosity peaked in just the mention of this product.
For the artist who is interested in the complete digital wireless system, Shure will also be showcasing the ULX-D. This system makes my little 1970's kit seem like it came out of a Cracker Jack box. The manufacturer says:
Shure ULX-D™ Digital Wireless offers uncompromising 24-bit audio clarity and extremely efficient RF performance with single, dual, and quad channel receivers for any size professional sound reinforcement application....Generations ahead of any other available system in its class, ULX-D brings a new level of performance to professional sound reinforcement.
Again; some pretty bold statements. Having used Shure equipment myself--during my 50+ years of performing and singing professionally--and having witnessed this company's quality first-hand, I believe first rather than doubt. Obviously, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating.
See you Tuesday, for some "pudding" at Soundcheck Nashville.
