BOSS WL-20 overview

  • 1Description

The BOSS WL-20 is a wireless system for electric guitarists. It provides easy operation through its plug-and-play user experience. Simply plug the included WL-T transmitter into your guitar, while the receiver goes into your amplifier, first pedal in the chain, or pedalboard input. Now, you are free to roam up to 50' away from your amp without worrying about dragging gear, tripping up your bandmates, or accidentally unplugging yourself.

The receiver automatically finds and sets the optimal wireless connection with the transmitter, selecting among 14 channels to do so, and operating over the carrier frequency of 2.4 GHz. At 2.3 ms, latency shouldn't be an issue. A USB charging cable is included, with which you can charge both the receiver and transmitter. To do this, plug the transmitter into the receiver, connect the charger to the DC-in port, and both units will be charged in around 4 hours. From there, you'll get approximately 10 hours of continuous playing time.

Another interesting feature of the WL-20 is the built-in cable-tone simulation, which adds wired authenticity into your wireless tone. It does this by producing a high-frequency roll-off that mimics the capacitive effect of 10' guitar cables. This makes the WL-20 a suitable choice for instruments with passive pickups.

Proprietary Boss Technology
Equipped with the Katana-Air's wireless technology, the WL-20 series delivers quality sonics with a wide dynamic range. Channel selection is handled automatically to ensure rock-solid audio performance with no drop-outs. With a latency of just 2.3 ms, you'll always enjoy great playing feel with no lag. Up to 14 BOSS wireless systems can be used simultaneously in one space, allowing multiple musicians to enjoy wireless freedom at the same time.
Plug In and Rock
A WL-20 system is as simple to use as a standard guitar cable. The small transmitter plugs into your instrument, while a matching receiver plugs into a pedal or an amp.
Automatic Wireless Setup
With the WL-20 series, there's no fiddly channel setup required. Just dock the transmitter and receiver together for about 10 seconds to automatically set the optimum connection.
Easy Charging via USB
When docked, the built-in batteries in the transmitter and receiver can be charged together with a standard USB adaptor (5 V/500 mA or higher), the same type used with many smartphones and tablets. The transmitter and receiver can also be charged separately, and a micro USB cable is included for charging.
WL-20: Built-In Cable Tone Simulation
If you play a guitar or bass with standard passive pickups (the most common pickup type), the WL-20 model is the proper choice. It includes built-in cable tone simulation, which reproduces the natural capacitive effect that's introduced when using a 10' guitar cable with passive pickups. This effect rolls off the treble very slightly, giving you the warm tone you're used to hearing with a normal cable. If you have an instrument with active pickups, the WL-20L is the better choice.
