Sennheiser EW 572 - Anyone else using one?

  1. Hey all,

    I recently joined a new band that has a high energy live show and figured it was time to dust off the wireless ive barely used since buying near 2 years ago. Plugging it in made me realise why I stopped using it, terrible amount of tone suck.

    The unit in question is a Sennheiser EW 572 G3 ( http://www.sennheiser.com/sennheise..._wireless-instrument-systems_ew-500-g3_021304 )

    Anybody else using this unit? If so, have you encountered a significant amount of tone suck? Ideally id like to work out a solution that doesnt involve selling it and buying another wireless. Ive been told a buffer pedal may help the overall signal strength and reduce the tone suck by a few people.

    Ideas?

    -Scott

    I've never heard a complaint about a Senny wireless, especially the 500 series.

    Check the cable emulation and gain settings on the pack.

    i don't know...i always felt like it was a bit compressed. wouldn't call it tone suck, but i didn't care for it. but it's definitely usable. me, i prefer digital wirelesses like line 6 and brace.

    I'm using one at the moment. Had the akg unit before and liked it a little better just because of the small transmitter. Sound wise though I think the 572 beats it. Check all your settings on the 572 especially the gain and EQ setting as well as the squelch setting.
