Shure wb98h/c with XD-V70L?
by kirleyman on 2011-08-29 17:08:00

Hey.

I looked around but didn't find any reference to the use of the Shure wb98h/c with the XD-V70L system.

I think a lot of us horn players would like to know if they're compatible.

I currently use this mic with a Shure SLX system for my trombone. It's the standard horn clip-on mic from Shure.

It has a TA4F connector so that shouldn't be an issue but I'd like to know if it gets along besides that (it's a condensor).

I'dbe a lot more inclined to purchase an XD-V70L if I didn't have to then go drop extra cash on a mic for it.

Also, with that same logic, what about a XD-V70 with just the belt pack transmitter and the receiver (no mic since I'm not gonna use the lav anyway)?

Thanks!

That mic should work just fine. At the present time a package without the mic is not available.  Think of it as a low cost backup in case you tear off the Shure cable at a gig.  It's still a bargin compared to your old system.

There is more info about 3rd party mics in the XD-V FAQ in the "documents" section.

Great. Thanks!

Should I still expect to get around 8 hours from the batteries?

Should be the same with either mic.  The factory supplied mics draw current as well.

Let us know how that mic works out, kirleyman ... so it can be added to the "3rd party mic compatibility" document http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2252

Will do.

It might be a little while before I make the purchase, though.

But with our band moving to in-ear monitors, I have a feeling my current wireless mic will start having issues which will expediate the process. Trying to operate 10 IEMs plus a couple of wireless mics can lead to intermodulation issues pretty quickly. Getting up and out of the regular wireless band sounds like a good/safe move.

I thought I should reply to this as I've been using this set-up now for about 6 months. It works just fine.

I use rechargeable batteries (NiMh) so I can't really comment on the power consumption since I always use a freshly charged pair which  last through a gig (up to 3 hours).

There are definitely better horn mics out there but for $140, the Shure gets the job done.
