Equipment Hire – Radio Mics

Professional radio mic equipment by Shure and Trantec.

Handheld Systems

Shure are world-renowned for their handheld wireless microphone systems and are seen every day on stages and TV shows. I keep a range of Shure handheld systems which use the industry standard Shure dynamic and condenser mic heads. They are all on the Channel 38 band (606-614MHz) and are supplied with a license:

Shure SLX with Beta87C head
Shure SLX with SM58 head
Shure PGX with SM58 head

Beltpack (Lavalier) Systems

I have standardised on the Trantec S5 series for beltpack-worn wireless systems. They give professional level performance in terms of audio quality and reliability, yet are cost-effective to be offered to schools and amateur societies that don’t have huge equipment hire budgets. They are available in either single systems, or in racks of 4, 6, or 8 channels. They’re also available in both Channel 38 and Channel 70 on UHF meaning that up to 16 systems can be used simultaneously, within the terms of UK licensing.

VHF Beltpack Systems

I still keep a rack of Trantec VHF beltpack systems with beige lavalier mics for school use. They still offer good audio performance, although the beltpacks are a little larger than the professional S5 series so are correspondingly cheaper.
