Shure GLXD16+ Digital Wireless Guitar Pedal System

Current Stock:

The Shure GLXD16+ is a digital wireless guitar system that offers reliable performance and outstanding sound quality in a package that's simple to use, even if you've never operated a wireless system before. Shure's next-generation technology handles the set up for you, automatically scanning both the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz frequency ranges to seek out the best possible digital transmission channel to ensure dependable performance for your application at a typical range of up to 100' indoors and 65' outside.

Bodypack Transmitter and WA305 Guitar Cable
  • This version of the GLXD16+ is configured with a bodypack transmitter and the WA305 guitar cable, a 3' instrument cable with a 4-pin mini connector (TA4F) on one end and a gold-plated Neutrik 1/4" TS connector on the other.
  • The rugged, metal chassis on the GLXD1+ transmitter offers an ergonomic design and a comfortable fit with a convenient on/off switch that can be operated by feel.
  • The system transmits audio with a flat, 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and 120 dB of dynamic range, leaving the sound of your mic unaffected by the wireless components.
  • The transmitter's input gain can be wirelessly adjusted right from the receiver's front panel to optimize the audio signal.
Pedal Receiver
  • This configuration includes a rugged, metal, stompbox-style pedal receiver with two fixed faceplate antennas.
  • A multi-segment LED clearly shows remaining transmitter battery life and also functions as an easy-to-read tuner.
  • In addition to a 1/4" instrument output, the unit also features a 1/4" input, allowing you to use it as a wired tuner.
  • A power supply is provided and the DC power input is compatible with standard positive- or negative-tip power supplies, allowing the GLXD6+ to slot right into your pedalboard.
  • Note that even when the unit is plugged in, the display will not activate until a cable is connected to either the 1/4" output or input. A durable footswitch provides instant muting in both the receiver and tuner modes.

Reliable Dual-Band Technology

  • GLX-D+ Dual-Band Digital Wireless systems operate in both the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz frequency ranges, automatically scanning both to select the one that offers the higher number of clean channels.
  • The previous GLX-D only worked in the 2.4 GHz range, which offers 83.5 MHz of bandwidth. By expanding into the 5.8 GHz range, the GLX-D+ provides an additional 125 MHz worth of potential open frequencies for available channels, helping to minimize dropouts and enhance reliability.
  • The system offers true digital diversity, which means two antennas and two independent receiver modules work together to reduce RF signal dropouts.
  • In addition to the main transmission frequency, the GLX-D+ is constantly monitoring 2 extra "backup frequencies”, so if the system detects interference, it will switch to one of the backups automatically without the user even knowing.
  • Besides the additional spectrum, there are other benefits to in operating in the 5.8 GHz range. In general, there are fewer devices operating in this range, making the spectrum cleaner. The 2.4 GHz range is home for Bluetooth devices and other devices, including Wi-Fi routers and repeaters, security cameras, baby monitors, garage door openers, and more. Operating in this range means competing with these devices for the same space.
  • GLX-D+ receivers typically allow you to run up to 4 mics simultaneously in the same space. Under ideal conditions, up to 8 systems can be used.
  • If you need more transmitters at once, consider a system with the GLXDR+ half-rack receiver, which offers removable antennas and can accommodate the GLXD+FM Frequency Manager (available separately). The frequency manager allows up to 11 transmitters to operate simultaneously (16 under highly optimal conditions) making it ideal for installations with multiple wireless systems.

Intelligent Battery Rechargeability

  • The GLXD1+ bodypack transmitter runs on an intelligent SB904 rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included).
  • The battery provides up to 12 hours of continuous use on a full charge.
  • The transmitter automatically powers off after approximately 1 hour to conserve battery life if the signal from a linked receiver is not detected. 
  • A red and green LED indicator on the transmitter shows sync and battery statuses at a glance.
  • The SB904 can be recharged while in the bodypack transmitter with a USB charging cable.
  • Just a 15-minute quick charge provides 1.5 hours of use.
  • The SB904's remaining battery life is displayed in hours and minutes from the receiver's front panel.
Additional Options
In addition to the pedal receiver in this set, Shure also offers tabletop and half-rack versions along with a variety of headset, instrument, and handheld microphone options to adapt your GLX-D+ system as your needs evolve.
  • The WB98H/C flexible gooseneck instrument microphone attaches to brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments and connects to the GLXD1+ bodypack transmitter.
  • Several headset options are available for the bodypack transmitter. Choose a PGA31 headset for everyday applications or try the SM31 Fitness or SM35 Performance models for more active demonstrations and performances.
  • The GLXD2+ handheld transmitter is available with a variety of mic capsule options for performers and presenters who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone including the SM58, BETA 58A, and BETA 87A capsules.
