Shure PGXD14/BETA98H Overview

The Shure PGXD14/BETA98H is a wireless microphone system for wind and percussion instruments offering high-quality 24-bit / 48 kHz digital audio in a cost-effective, reliable package that's easy to use. The lightweight tabletop receiver is highly portable, making it an excellent fit for on-the-go solo musicians and small ensemble performers working in event spaces, theaters, weddings, houses of worship, and other limited-size venues.

PGX-D Digital systems operate in the 900 MHz band, far away from potential TV and cell phone interference. The receiver offers true digital diversity, using two antennas and two independent receiver circuits to ensure reliable transmission at a maximum line-of-sight range of up to 200'.

Operation is simple. Press the Scan button, and the receiver scans for a clean frequency. Press the Sync button, and the receiver and transmitter lock to the same channel via infrared ports. That's it, you're up and running. If the RF environment changes and interference is heard, simply rescan and resync to operate on a new clean frequency.

This configuration comes with a WB98H/C cardioid clip-on instrument mic and a bodypack transmitter that runs for up to 10 hours on two AA batteries. Up to 5 wireless mics can operate simultaneously in the same space.

A Portable System with Easy-to-Use Components

Tabletop Receiver

  • Lightweight, plastic construction for portability
  • Fixed, front-facing antennas
  • LEDs indicate audio levels and transmitter battery strength as well as group, channel, and locked/unlocked status
  • The back panel houses an XLR mic-level output as well as a 1/4" instrument-level output
  • Frequency lockout to prevent accidental changes

Bodypack Transmitter

  • TA4M 4-pin input jack with 26 dB of adjustable gain for mic/line/instrument inputs
  • Power switch doubles as mute switch with quick press
  • Frequency, power, and mute lockout to prevent accidental interruptions
  • LEDs show mute, battery, and lockout status
  • Lightweight design with molded ABS housing

Clip-On Instrument Mic

  • The WB98H/C miniature condenser microphone clamps onto the bell of wind instruments or onto the rim of percussion instruments
  • It features a cardioid polar pattern that helps reject unwanted noise in loud environments
  • The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint allow the microphone to be easily positioned and secured
  • The built-in pop filter reduces unwanted wind and breath noise
  • The isolation shockmount reduces the transmission of instrument key noise and other mechanical sounds

Add Functionality to Your System

Shure offers a variety of headset, instrument, and handheld microphone options to adapt your PGX-D system as your needs evolve.

  • The WA302 guitar cable lets you connect the bodypack transmitter to a guitar or bass
  • The discrete MX153 sub-miniature earset mic provides exceptional clarity in spoken word applications
  • The WL185 cardioid lavalier mic is a hands-free mic option that clips to clothing for presenters and performers
  • The WL184 supercardioid lavalier mic offers a narrower, feedback-resistant pickup pattern for louder events
  • The PGXD2 handheld transmitter is available with different mic capsules for performers who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone—including SM58, SM86, Beta 58A, and Beta 87A capsules
