Samson's AirLine 88 Guitar system offers true wireless freedom without the hassle of beltpacks and attachment cables!

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.

Concert 88 Never Disappoints !


A $200 UHF wireless guitar system that actually works as it should is a gift sent from heaven. I personally keep one of these ready for all of my gigs now.

Definitely takes your stage performances to the next level when you do not have to tip toe around cables or stand in one spot because you have a leash on your guitar. Add a new element of energy to your stage presence and go wireless with the Concert 88

Great price for a wireless.


As someone who gets tangled in cables all the time, a wireless system is must for playing live. The Samson AirLine 88 is perfect for musicians that need a wireless but can't afford some of the higher end ones. The biggest perk you get with the system is the transmitter itself. Samson went with a bug style transmitter instead of the standard belt pack which truly frees you from wires.

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.

Great Wireless System!


This is a great guitar wireless system, that just plugs directly into your guitar. No need for a belt pack or cables. Just plug it in and you are ready to rock. Super simple and easy to use design makes it great for guitar players of all skill levels.






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!
