Whether you run a music venue, a lecture hall, or a karaoke club, wireless microphones can make your job easier -- or harder! While wireless mics give presenters and performers the freedom to move around without tripping over cabling, wireless systems come with their own set of headaches: transmission interference. Adding additional mics to your system can make this problem even bigger, but the Shure PG288/PG58 Dual Vocal Wireless System combats transmission interference in several ways to make sure you never miss those mic cables. And the Shure PG288/PG58 system boasts the audio quality that has made Shure a live performance industry standard.
Two Mics + Two Frequencies = Zero Interference
When you get two or more wireless microphones in the same space set to the same frequency, those mics will start to compete for bandwidth -- and if you've ever heard two radio stations fight for dominance on your car stereo, you know it's not a pretty sound. The PG288/PG58 System eliminates this problem, because PG-series wireless mics are pre-calibrated to stay out of one another's way.
Switchable Channels For Expandability
You might notice the "Channel H7, Channel K7, and Channel M7" options to the upper right. These codes represent different frequency bands -- sort of like AM and FM. By getting systems with different bands, you can add additional Shure PG288/PG58 units to your setup without having to worry about crosstalk interference. In addition to these different band range options, each PG288 receiver has up to 10 switchable channels. Channel switching makes it easy to find a clean frequency if you're in a radio-busy area. In fact, you can use up to eight PG288/PG58 Dual Vocal Wireless Systems together. That's up to 16 wireless microphones in one venue!
Even with adjustable channel selection, there's no telling when an errant radio signal will suddenly beam into your space and collide with one of your active wireless units. Even momentary interference can cause audible signal dropouts or noise spikes, but the Shure Dual Vocal Wireless System combats these problems with a method called "frequency diversity." The PG288 receiver's internal diversity actively and predictively switches between one of several transmitted frequencies, so if the system senses that another signal is competing on a specific frequency, it automatically switches to a clear one. Diversity gives the Shure wireless systems a more robust signal that you can rely on for demanding professional applications.
Classic Shure PG58 Mic Capsule
A transmission signal this stable deserves a stellar microphone, and the Dual Vocal Wireless system delivers with its Shure PG58 handheld transmitter. Based on the design that's become the industry standard for live performance the world over, the PG58 mic is perfectly tailored for vocal reproduction. Notes a full-bodied and musical for singers, while spoken word is clear and articulate. Plus, the mesh metal grille protects the mic element itself from drops and the inevitable singer-spittle. "PG" stands for "Performance Gear," and as soon as you start gigging with your new PG288/PG58 system, you'll know why.
You've always wanted a wireless mic, and you know you're not the only one in your band that does. Go on and treat yourself and a bandmate to the Shure PG288/PG58 Dual Vocal Wireless System. It's the affordable wireless solution that's worry-free, and sounds the way only a Shure wireless microphone can.

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC's wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones
None of the wireless systems we carry are capable of violating the FCC guidelines stated above. We are presenting this information as a matter of legally required disclosure.
