Nady System introduced a new, specially customized wireless
system for bass guitars. Until now, bass players have typically used standard
wireless guitar systems if they wanted to play cordless. Nady's new VHF system,
the Encore 200, offers features designed specifically for the bass guitar
and the unique demands required by bass players for accurate, distortion-free
The Encore 200's key features include: 1) Proprietary Enhanced Headroom for
maximum clarity even with high output active pickups. This special circuitry
is designed to accept levels 4 to 7 times higher than standard instrument wireless
systems, keeping even the highest signals clean and distortion-free without
any added increase in background noise; 2) Bass Boost adjust on receiver output
for tuning in exactly the right bass punch and presence missing in standard
wireless. This control permits players to set the degree of "punch" they want
depending on style and setup, thus eliminating the perceived thinner sound
often noted with many instrument wireless systems when compared to a cord;
and 3) Easily accessible input level adjust control on transmitter for optimum
sound with all types of bass pickup outputs.
In addition to these unique features for bass, the Encore 200 offers a rugged
half-rack receiver with retractable front panel dual antennas, DigiTRU Diversity
for optimum range and dropout protection, 5 LED RF and AF displays for monitoring
incoming signal strength and audio level, unbalanced 1/4" and balanced XLR
outputs for bass amp or direct mixer feeds, or both, and snap-out side panel
locking tabs for convenient single receiver or dual receiver (side-by-side)
optional rack mounting.
The Encore 200 also features Nady's 120dB of dynamic range and operates on
selectable frequencies between 169 and 216 MHz, with a typical range of 250
ft (up to 500+ ft with optimum line-of-sight). Although the Encore 200 is designed
for the unique requirements of bass guitars, it can also be effectively used
with guitars and other instruments.
The Encore 200 began shipping in September, 2004.
