Yea, for a two-tone and 5 switch you're probably better off with a Shure Beta 98H/c system.  Though their systems have undergone some changes.  Be sure to buy a newer digital system if you can.  Those systems can live in tighter frequency areas so they can be less prone to interference when setup properly.

I'd recommend either the GLXD14/Beta98H or the PGXD14/Beta98H.  Both are similar in price.  The GLX system is the newer one.  It has a rechargeable battery in the belt-pack and operates in the 2.4GHz range instead of the 900MHz range (It's around $50 more expensive).  Neither range will save you from interference...they're both pretty crowded, but the digital systems are a little better at helping you deal with it.

Though I think the GLX belt pack systems are still on pre-order, but if you can wait it might be worth getting the latest and greatest.

There are other good mics from AKG (C516 ML), Audio-Technica (ATM350), and Sennheiser (e908) that you can get matching wireless systems for.  I would imagine they're competitive with what Shure makes.  I only mentioned Shure in detail because I know their product line better.

Ive used the Audio Technica gooseneck for over 15 years and it still works great. Im thinking about trying the clip on gooseneck produced by Samson only because i swap accordions on stage and the Samson doesnt have a cable hooked to it. Any input on the Samson?

They used to use an Audio-Technica mic on their wireless systems, the PRO 35X.  That's sort of the little brother to the ATM350.  It was fine for smaller accordions.  I'm not sure what they use now.  It still looks like the old Audio-Technica mic, but they call it an HM40...supposedly their own mic.

I don't know man... honestly it's a gamble with wireless these days.  If you have your heart set on it, pick one up from a reputable dealer that will allow to send it back if you don't like it.  The mic is probably fine, but their website doesn't list anything having to do with operating frequencies, etc... 

Honestly if you only use smaller boxes like Hohner Coronas, you're probably better off with a Vamonos.  It just as easy, or easier to switch boxes with it.
