Sennheiser Evolution EW 172 G3 Wireless System at a Glance:
  • A transmitter made to perform with you
  • You can rely on this receiver
  • Great sound from a wireless package
A transmitter made to perform with you

Sennheiser has packed many useful features into the lightweight SK 100 G3 bodypack transmitter. The SK 100 G3 has an easy-to-read graphic display, infrared sync, charging contacts, cable emulation, RF mute, an intuitive menu and much more. As features alone are no substitute for audio quality, the AF frequency response was expanded to 25Hz-18kHz for incredibly clear sound. Sweetwater knows you want a hassle-free wireless experience, and with the SK 100 G3 bodypack transmitter, you get it.

You can rely on this receiver

The rugged EM 100 G3 rack receiver is ready for the road with its proven transmission reliability and inspiring flexibility. A sound check mode allows you to check the audio and RF signal at any time during setup. Twenty frequency banks with 12 preset frequencies each - plus a user-programmable bank - mean you can easily run multiple channels of G3 wireless simultaneously.

Great sound from a wireless package

The system's new cable emulator feature allows you adjust virtual cable lengths to get sound response just like a cable would provide. Another great new feature for guitarists is the onboard guitar tuner right on the display. A built-in 5-band EQ allows you to fine tune your sound even further. Bass players in particular will be pleased with the enhanced AF frequency response; it starts at a thundering 25Hz, which will especially please players with 5-string bass guitars. Sennheiser included all the accessories you need, including a power supply unit, an instrument cable, two antennas, two stacking elements, and AA batteries.

Worry-free Wireless!

We wanted you to know that all of the wireless systems you see here — and all of the wireless systems available at Sweetwater — are 100% compliant with the Federal Communication Commission's new rules governing wireless systems. You can be confident that these systems will work safely and within the permitted frequency/power ranges, just as they are. However, please be aware that by choosing to use systems that operate in the 700MHz range or by modifying a new wireless system you receive from us, you may cause your system to operate outside the FCC's new guidelines. If that's the case, you may need a license to operate the unit. To find out more, visit the FCC's wireless microphone website at or give them a call at (888) CALL-FCC.

Wireless Head wore mic system

Jeff was very helpful in selecting the "right" system for our church both now and in the future. It installed very easily with only one modification to the mounting brackets. It did NOT fit in our standard mounting rack where the old system was. The pastor who uses the system loves the way it fits and it sounds great and is very responsive. Would definitely recommend this product.
