Product Description

The whole point of wireless microphone and instrument systems is to eliminate cables for complete freedom of movement. AirLine takes this idea to the next level with miniaturized transmitters that eliminate conventional body pack transmitters and connecting cables so vocalists, musicians, fitness trainers, public speakers, on air talent, and more can cut ALL the cables for the first time!

AirLine Guitar System

The revolutionary AirLine "plug-in" guitar transmitters come in 2 versions: the AF1 for Strat(r)-style inputs and the AG1 for traditional Gibson(r)-style end-mount inputs and all others. Less than half the size of conventional body packs, these miniaturized transmitters run on a tiny triple-A battery with 14-hour battery life. Both feature an array of onboard controls: A Power On/Off and Mute switch, red/green LED for Power On/Off, a Peak LED and an Input Level control for different pickups. And UHF (Ultra High Frequency) means clearer frequencies with less interference.

Designed for use with your compact effect pedals, the AP1 diversity receiver gives you reception you can always depend on. It features a 1/4-inch output jack, Power On/Off switch, Peak LED, and a Volume control. You can use a 9-volt battery or an optional AC adapter from Samson to power the receiver. When you unplug your the unit, the battery is disabled to conserve power.

System Includes: AP1 "Stomp Box" Style Receiver and AG1 Plug-In Micro Transmitter.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Samson products.
AP1 Pedal Receiver:
- Power switch and level control
- Power On/Low Battery LED indicators as well as TX/Peak LEDs
- Dual swivel mounting antennas for optimum positioning
- 1/4-inch unbalanced output jack
- DC input
- Squelch control
- AF1/AG1 Transmitters feature standard 1/4-inch plug, Power/Battery LED, Power switch, 15dB pad switch and operate on single AAA battery

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (98 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Excellent"
Sound: It has average quality transmission (good for price, average compared to higher end models). The sound quality significantly degrades as the battery weakens, so I never use the same battery for two gigs. The range is limited to general stage use. So if you plan to run off stage and run to the back of an auditorium, you will find that there is a noticeable delay by the time you get halfway back. I'd estimate about a ms, which is more than enough to be very disrupting (but most people never get that far off stage). Feature: Very simple features. -15 db switch on transmitter is very useful for hot pickups, usually necessary to avoid distortion. Flexible gain knob on receiver allows user to level out signal to a good level for the audio tech. No frills, but you shouldn't want any extra knobs or buttons on a wireless. One gripe was that it did not include the AC adapter. But, the fact that the transmitter uses AAA batteries instead of a 9V is a huge bonus. Significantly decreases operational costs. Ease of Use: Very straight forward use, just need to set the main gain knob and plug in to use. Quality: Rugged enough but I don't suggest leaving it by your pedals, even though that's where it is intended to be placed. I always step on mine on accident, and I'm sure I'd eventually destroy an antenna. Value: For the cost, I think it is the best choice at the moment. Paid $50 more for mine at the time, and I think it was worth it then. It is more compatible with a guitarists setup than most units. If you don't have a rack case for your head, effects, conditioners, etc. (and the bankroll that is associated with that setup) then I recommend this as an inexpensive reliable option. Otherwise get a high end rack mount unit and spend 6 times more. Manufacturer Support: Never had to contact Samson. The Wow Factor: practical, not sexy Overall: Pros: -reliable, working well after 2 years of heavy abuse -Inexpensive -uses AAA instead of 9V (for transmitter) -Smaller, more convenient transmitter -Rugged receiver -Good quality sound for price Cons: -transmitter is easy to loose -transmitter battery must be new for acceptable normal operation -AC adapter not included (12 VDC)

"Perfect affordable solution"
Sound: Sound is very transparent. No hiss, no hiccoughs, no problems with delay or dropped signal. I play mainly in church, and this unit allows me to stand in the foyer 80' away without the slightest issue. Much better than trying to roam with a cord! Feature: As has been said, what features would you want? It does its job. It would have been nice if they had included a power supply, but I just daisy chain the supply to my pedals, and it's fine. Ease of Use: This was a primary consideration in buying this unit, as we have many guitar players of varying skill levels who would be using it. Plug in, turn on, you're done. How much easier could it be? Quality: The transmitter seems to be more than adequately built. I have heard people complain that the transmitter doesn't sit tight, but I've never had that problem (I suspect that has more to do with the poles in the jack than the transmitter anyway). The receiver is pretty cheaply made, and likely could have used a more solid metal casing instead of the plastic one. The design makes it look like you could stomp on it to mute it or something like that (which would be a nice feature, now that I think about it), but I wouldn't do that if I were you, since the place you'd step is actually the battery compartment. Overall not bad, but could have been tougher. Having said that, the system does work very well, and I have no issues with the electronics at all. Value: Excellent value for the money. We couldn't afford a good Senn or Shure system, and this one suits our need to a T for a very reasonable cash outlay. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with them, which says something good, I think. The Wow Factor: I love the size and design. Having this on my pedalboard is fantastic, and makes the whole system well worthwhile. Being able to just plug in the transmitter without messing with any kind of cable or lead is awesome. Overall: Purchased this unit about 12 months ago, and I couldn't be happier with it. We've never had any issues, and the price was better than I could have hoped for a decent wireless system.
