Victoria, Canada (November 21, 2014)—Over his two decade career, singer/songwriter Edwin McCain has released a number of hits and plays more than 300 gigs a year. For each of them, he brings along a WMS4500 professional wireless system for his guitar, and a WMS4500 vocal system with an HT4500 wireless transmitter using a C535 capsule.

“We’re always playing out, always gigging nonstop,” said McCain. “The C535 is the perfect complement to the sound of my voice…. No matter what setting we’re playing in, the equipment works great.”

McCain always has a backup wired microphone onstage, but in all his time using the C535 and HT4500, “I have never had to use that backup microphone, ever. The same with my wireless guitar pack—we have a backup cable just in case but I’ve never had to plug it in. We are talking a decade at least without a failure. I find that remarkable.”
