Featuring a plug-in transmitter with a dual-position connector designed to fit different style guitar jacks, this frequency-agile UHF wireless system offers high definition sound, premium reliability and a 300' operating range for guitarists, bassists and other stringed instrumentalists.

The Wireless Future
AirLine 88 Guitar continues Samson's longstanding commitment to wireless innovation. Designed to be an extension of your instrument rather than a separate component, the AG8 Guitar Transmitter lets you rule the stage with confidence. It provides IR sync to wirelessly match the receiver and transmitter frequency, an audio Mute switch, battery life LED indicator and up to 12 hours of operation on a single AA battery.

A Multi-Instrumentalist
Can you really use only one guitar? Samson doesn't think you should have to make that choice. That's why the AG8 plug-in transmitter was designed with a custom, dual-position connector that can fit both Fender and Gibson-style guitar output jacks. Airline 88 Guitar also provides exceptional low frequency clarity ideal for bass guitars. It's even a great wireless solution for acoustic-electric guitars, electric violins and accordions.

Tour Support
Offering frequency-agile operation, the system’s rack mountable CR88 Wireless Receiver provides 16 selectable channels for reliable performance no matter where you are. The receiver’s True Diversity design minimizes dropouts, while tone key technology prevents interference when your transmitter is muted or out of range.

it works


Please read this as 4.5 stars. I bought this to help with sound check as bass guitar can vary quite a bit around a room and especially outdoors. I'm looking forward to the range claimed, haven't gone more than ~50' yet. Glad I bought a very low latency spec, it is palpable especially if you're not fully line-of-sight to the receiver. I did not expect I'd be able to notice it, but it is there. One drawback for me was the need to adjust the level on the receiver, it's a variable I was not thinking of; my intent is to check levels and then run corded. I'll have to mark the knob location so I don't get messed up if it gets nudged. The inclusion of a half-rack mounting setup was appreciated. Even though it makes the box too big to just live in my gig bag, it should be easy enough to find something to protect it. Other reviews pointed out the issue with switch/LED labeling, I was surprised it is still true but here it is. I will undoubtedly mess up and leave it on so my ritual will be to pull the battery between uses. I was glad to find a dongle style unit that didn't need a charger, I don't think my few-times-a-year in a new venue would be good for a rechargeable as they fail in infrequent use. Sam Ash was fine but took 2 days longer than I planned to arrive. FedEx Home is not the same as Ground, and this shipped from a warehouse much farther than expected - missed the use at the gig that sparked me to buy it...

Reliable Wireless System At An Affordable Price!


The Samson AirLine 88 Guitar Wireless System is fully loaded and a great deal--it features a 300' line-of-sight operating range, 16 selectable channels, the transmitter runs on AA batteries and is built into the 1/4 inch jack component so there is no bodypack!! Also, it comes with the rack-mounting system to get it into a rack case. It has the option of going XLR or 1/4 inch out and is easy to set-up. This unit is definitely the most affordable way to go wireless that still gives you good, reliable quality.

The Samson Airline 88 is by far the best way to mic your guitar wirelessly and is the most cost effective too! This system is easy to set up and is compatible with both Fender and Gibson style jack plugins. This makes this system very versatile, allowing you to mic an assortment of electric string instruments. The Airline 88 is great for live performances, offering up to 300' of in sight range. All in all one of the better guitar mic-ing systems I have found and definitely the most affordable!



What Cables??


The Airline 88 is a really great wireless system. The new transmitter design will fit any guitar very comfortably and its super durable. I plugged this thing in and went walking around to test out its range and clarity and found there's no signal interference at relatively long distances and its tone sounded like I was still plugged straight in. Perfect unit for a perfect price!
