I've used one for years. Now the frequencies on my Samson's have been outlawed. I'm wireless shopping again.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I did back in the 80's. As much as cables can be a PITA when playing live, I doubt I'm going wireless again.

The line 6 are inexpensive and work ( for me) very well. I have a Shure as well and the line 6 is a lot less hassle.

I'm using the Shure GLDX-D wireless pedal. I like that it includes a digital tuner and fits on my pedal board. No separate receiver to have to deal with.

Mine works really well but when I first got it, it used to cut in and out. I found out that a wire inside the cable was loose. After it was fixed, all is good. It's on the "pricey" side but worth it to me.

I did for a year or so in my gigging days. I went back to a cable because the places we were playing were smallish stages, so no need for untethered communications and the attendant battery replacements.

I use two different units, a Line 6 X2 XDR1 on my small club setup and a Line 6 G55 on the bigger preamp/power amp rig. I recently had to replace the 9v battery pigtail in the X2 transmitter when the + side broke off at the battery connection.

I like using the wireless so I'm not standing on cables all night long.

Check out the Line 6 Relay G10 Digital Guitar Wireless System, not expensive, simple, no batteries required.

"Now the frequencies on my Samson's have been outlawed."
I think my old Shure has the same problem. So what are they going to do to you, if you use the Samson? Is there someone out there monitoring this stuff, or will you be interfering with something important?
Anyone know?

After some research, looks like my Shure PG4 system is still legal, surprisingly. It operates in the H7 536 - 548 range and I haven't found anything stating that is illegal.

I think you can do a google search to find out what frequencies are being used local services.

I use a SHure GLX digital pedal wireless. Works great as long as I don't wander too far. It's only about 20 feet. We move around quite a bit on stage and use wireless mics as well to keep fewer cables. It also helps with set up and tear down with fewer cables.

Anyone tried these? Seem to have good reviews, are rechargeable, and very compact.

The band I played with this past weekend both guitarists were using Line 6 G-10's (I think).

Both had to swap to cables at sound check as something was interfering and they were taking turns at dropping in and out.

I had a nice Sennheiser setup for years until they sold the frequency spectrum to a tv station or whatnot. Went back to cable and haven't really missed it that much

I've used a dual receiver Shure UHF-R system for the past 12 years. Love it. The only time I use a cable is when I'm in a studio.


Nicoma Park, OK.

Mine's one of the outlawed ones too.

I don't have any intentions of replacing it.
