The stageClix Jack system consists of a jack plug transmitter, with the jack itself on an articulated knuckle so that, when plugged in, the transmitter body can be turned flush to the guitar. This transmitter uses two rechargeable AAA batteries (supplied) and has a battery life of at least 15 hours straight use. When the transmitter is plugged into the receiver, the batteries are recharged quickly and automatically, 80% in 3 hours. Batteries can be user-replaced (and will be supplied FOC if within 2 years of purchase, so keep your invoice), or returned to Holland for exchange and environmental disposal.
There have been wireless systems for guitar and bass guitar for many years now. With a few (extremely expensive) exceptions, they have all been analogue systems, and this type of system has a couple of distinct disadvantages.
The first is that they all employ a piece of circuitry called a 'compander' (short for compressor/expander) to squash up your signal before transmission so that it will fit in the VHF or UHF band, and then expand it back again at the receiver end to try and get near what it sounded like originally. As with 300dpi to 72dpi photo's, or wav to mp3's, once you remove information to reduce the file size, you can't get it back.
And the second is bandwidth. Even the more expensive models roll off the bass at around 60Hz (bottom E on a bass guitar is 44Hz; and if you've a bottom B string, that's about 31Hz). So, much of that big fat bottom end you have worked hard to get doesn't even make it to the input socket of the amp! And they roll off at the top end around 14-15kHz, so the subtle, higher end harmonics and sheen are discarded, too.
Now of course some of that top and bottom end gets through, albeit considerably attenuated, and the brain tries to psycoacoustically make up for what is missing. But really, wouldn't it be better to have an un-tampered-with, full range signal to start with??
Enter the stageClix Digital Wireless System from Holland. Firstly, because it is digital, there is no compander because there is no need for one. And secondly, the bandwidth is 20Hz to 20kHz, ±1dB (that's CD quality).
The system uses a frequency of 2.4 GHz, which is both legal to use, and available worldwide. It is also a long way away from the current analogue bands that are due to be sold off by the British government in the Digital Television switchover, so stageClix is entirely unaffected by what happens there - future proof!
The materials used for both the transmitter and receiver casings have been carefully selected and tested, and have proven to be "roadproof". The shell of the transmitter is manufactured from indestructible polycarbonate (also used to make safety goggles).
The receiver is housed in a robust metal case.
The system uses a patented transmitting technique which stageClix calls ’triple-diversity’. By using three frequencies within 1 channel at the same time there’s practically zero chance of dropout or interference. Compare this with hopping from one single channel to another after interference sets in. It’s also really easy to use, there is no menu to navigate, nor an installation procedure. Plug into the guitar, switch on, and play!
The transmitter has been designed to fit almost all makes of bass guitars and guitars without needing a beltpack - although a beltpack version will be available shortly for those instruments where there is a physical problem, or interference from active electronics. A nice touch is when you withdraw the transmitter from the charger/receiver, it is automatically switched off to prevent a possible thump as you plug it into your instrument.
