Product description

Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, the Smooth Hound Classic is a high fidelity digital wireless guitar system that offers high performance, long range and excellent battery life. The Classic's ultra low harmonic distortion ensures the tone of your instrument is preserved. Low latency and impressive dynamic range mean you never lose detail, timbre or immediacy. It's near impossible to hear the difference between a Smooth Hound wireless system and a cable. Outdoor range of 200 feet from the high powered transceiver. Indoor range is maximised by twin antenna diversity and automated adaptive channel selection. Four Protocol-K systems can operate in a typical setting with no setup. Adaptive channel selection automatically and continuously finds the clearest regions of the 2.4 GHz spectrum to use. This keeps Protocol-K systems clear from each other and gives excellent coexistence with other spectrum users such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The transmitter takes two AAA batteries with a typical battery life of 15 hours from modern alkaline cells. Rechargeable NiMH AAA batteries work well and offer a typical 10 hours between charges. An optional auto-power down mode can help save batteries if you don't play your instrument for a period of time. Both the transmitter and receiver have clear connection status indicators. The receiver has LED bar graphs indicating signal strength, quality and remaining charge in the transmitter batteries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Kit but be prepared to mount it on the strap!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 August 2016
Cant fault this kit on its technology, the Wireless works really well and the sound is great, the build of the components and parts are fine. The quality of the Wireless adapter is solid and well made. All round the equipment has a great solid feel to it. I bought it because of this feature and because I wanted something that had some interference management etc. The presentation and instructions are clear and easy to follow and overall I would have given this a 5 but for the following.
My only caveat is that the adapter has been built to be used in conjunction with a through connector for most guitars as "plugging in direct" leaves the adapter swinging in the wind, unless you have a side mounted socket, e.g. a Gibson Les Paul or side mounted socket on your acoustic. For anything other than this its the "micropoor tape" although a good idea has no realistic effect unless stuck on the extreme end of the adapter covering the "Battery Cover Clip". I have two Guitars that this adaptor could be used "plugged direct" without it swinging about, the remaining Guitars would all need to use the through connector method and have the adaptor located on the strap or on the person.
This seems a failing in that the adaptor could be built to be plugged in direct making the need for link cabling and mounting the adaptor un-necessary. The whole point of Wireless is to reduce the need for cables!
Apart from this I think this is a great piece of kit and well worth buying...it seems most Wireless adapters are made to be carried on the belt , strap or "Wired" to the guitar so this one continues that tradition and does a good job of providing a clean solution for this, albeit using the through connector and requires a 0.5mtr cable to connect the device, the adaptor hangs off the strap pretty snugly and is robust enough to resist being bashed.
Although these methods of mounting are common for a lot of wireless adapters it would be refreshing to get one of high quality that plugs in direct but doesn't stick out too much or swing about. This adaptor could be made to sit against the body of most guitars more easily by providing a version with alternative connector on the bottom, or an interchangeable base for altering the jack.
I've uploaded a few photos for the benefit of seeing how the device would or would not fit on most guitars...Be prepared to clip it to the strap or the belt as although you could plug it in direct it will stick out rather significantly and the tape will be no use for front facing or end based sockets.
My only other comments are around the use of an On/Off "button" shaped like the badge; this is a nice touch on the outside face of the adaptor, showing a green flashing LED, although unlikely, it could be pressed by heavy clothing or jackets or other similar things if used on the belt. Using the Strap method the adaptor is exposed behind you and the button is exposed on the outer face. Leaning back against something or brushing against a wall could affect this in the event of hitting the adaptor button against something or if the guitar taken off and the strap draped against the floor etc...something to think about!
Overall this kit is great and hopefully future developments will provide a way of plugging in the device direct to the guitar, for all types, as this would be my personal preference if I could get it. At present most "Plugged Direct" adaptors stick out on Front facing sockets such as a Gibson 335 and don't look particularly neat or as cool as this one would. Keep up the good work and bring out an alternate adaptor jack for front facing sockets!

Adding to this some time later I realised that another aspect is " What to keep the Kit in " I hunted about for a decent lightweight case for this and found the [[ASIN:B00J9CVTJQ Smatree SmaCase G160 - Medium Case for GoPro Hero4, 3+, 3, 2, 1 and Accessories- Travel & Household Case with Excellent Cut Foam Interior - Black & Red]]
This is lightweight and has foam cut pretty much to suit. I just adapted the foam to fit the receiver and all's good. At under £15 for a case and foam its a good deal in my view. I've included a photo at the end
It'd be great if the supplier was offering cases as well..as at present the cardboard presentation case although good isn't going to last the rounds on Gigs
