Boss Wireless Systems: Wireless Freedom Made Easy

When it comes to performing, your freedom of movement is an integral part of the show. When most people go to a live show, they are expecting you to entertain them. Of course, if you’re anchored to your amp, your movements will be limited. Fortunately, with the Boss WL Wireless range, you can have the freedom to move around on stage as and when you like. 

If you’ve ever looked into getting a wireless system before, then you have undoubtedly seen the often massive transmitter packs that you need to strap to either your guitar strap or your belt. Then there’s the cable from the guitar to the transmitter that you need to get out of the way. 

To add to this, the receiver is usually a bulky box, that while not heavy, is an additional piece of gear that you need to find space for in your rig. 

Wireless Freedom Made Easy

With the Boss WL series, going wireless has never been simpler. There is no complicated setup required, and no cumbersome pieces of equipment; to pair the transmitter and the receiver, all you need to do is dock the two together, and they will automatically sync. 

From there, all you need to do is plug the transmitter into the guitar and the receiver into an amp, and you’re good to go.

Lightning Fast Connectivity

The Boss WL series boasts lightning-fast wireless technology. The WL operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency range, which will ensure that you are in the optimum range for accurate tone recreation, and will give you “absolutely no drop-outs”. 

Wireless Concerns Addressed

One concern most players have when it comes to wireless technology is latency. The latency on the WL series is 2.3 ms! For all intents and purposes that means that the WL series is lag-free. 

Another concern when it comes to wireless packs is that they might interfere with each other. And again, Boss has ensured that this won’t be an issue with the WL series. You can run up to 14 WL packs in one space with no fear of interference. 

The final concern with wireless systems is their battery life. With the WL range you can get up to 12-hours of performance time, and with USB charging available, you never need to worry about running out to buy new batteries. 

Three Models

The WL-20 has built-in cable tone simulation. You might find yourself wondering what that has to do with anything? Well, did you know that your cable affects your tone? Especially if you play a guitar with passive pickups (most electric guitars use passive pickups). To ensure that you get an accurate tone, the WL-20 matches the impedance that a 3 metre guitar cable would add.

Of course, if you play an instrument with active pickups, or want to connect your keyboard, the added impedance of a cable is not something you would want. The Boss WL-20L is identical to the WL-20 in every way, except for the cable impedance.

The WL-50 is the ideal solution for anyone who wants to add more functionality to their pedalboard. The internal workings of the WL-50 are the same as the 20s. The primary difference is that the WL-50 comes with a stompbox-sized transmitter dock, two cable tone simulation options, and a DC output for distributing power to one or more pedals.

 The WL-60 system is a great fit for serious stage performers, bridging plug-and-play simplicity with fast user-guided control. The compact receiver is tailor-made for pedalboards, and features a large visual display and direct-access buttons to quickly scan and select the best wireless channel. Rounding out the system is a rugged bodypack transmitter, which is compatible with nearly any instrument and runs for up to 25 hours on regular alkaline batteries.

The WL-60T Wireless Transmitter is compatible with the BOSS WL-60 Wireless System. It allows you to outfit a second instrument for quick changes on stage, and also provides a spare if your original transmitter is lost or damaged. The rugged integrated clip securely mounts to your strap or belt, and its orientation can be reversed to suit your playing preference.
