A wireless guitar footswitch by Audio-Technica
Audio-Technica adds to its System 10 Wireless Series the Stompbox footswitch designed with guitar players in mind.
Available under reference ATW-1501 Stompbox, this new Audio-Technica wireless system operates on the 2.4GHz bandwidth. It comprises the ATW-R5100 footswitch equipped with two 1/4” outputs and an output mode selector, as well as the ATW-T1001 Unipak pocket transmitter. A guitar cable and Velcro strips are also provided in the pack.
The Stompbox wireless system can be used, for example, for switching between guitar amps, mute an output without affecting the other one, an you can couple the receiver to up to 8 Unipak transmitters.
Audio-Technica included three “Diversity” levels that will guarantee the communication reliability. The transmitter uses two dynamically-allocated frequencies (frequency “diversity”), while the receiver is equipped with two antennas (antenna “diversity”). Last, the time “diversity” sends 24-bit / 48kHz digital data within different time slots.
The Stompbox features a display in which you can monitor the HF channel used, the level of the battery of the transmitter and audio signal peak / coupling.
The System 10 Wireless Stompbox will be available this Spring for the suggested EU price of 319€ excl. VAT. You’ll find more info at eu.audio-technica.com.
