Quality Wireless Guitar
« on: February 03, 2020, 05:42:47 pm »

I need to recommend a quality wireless system for a guitar player. He is currently using a 2.4G wireless setup, but it has dropouts. He is ready to purchase something of very good quality. My search came up withe an older post discussing the Line 6 X2, but this was a 12 year old thread.

So what does everyone recommend? Please note I am not wireless knowledgeable so please take it easy on the acronyms.

Sennheiser G3 or G4 systems, the body packs also have an option for different input loading for passive pickups.

2.4ghz and wireless mics do not work well together right when you need it to work!

I use the Shure GLXD.  Works very well AS LONG AS I keep my distance from any 2.4g routers.
Line 6 have had more interference issues for me.

Check out Lectrosonics and Shure QLXD.

I've had excellent luck with the Shure GLXD systems as well. I've even used multiple GLXD guitar and a few GLXD mics at the same time in all sorts of venues and it has always been rock solid. They are also very well built, medal body packs, rechargeable batteries, tons of batter life, sounds just like the cable, etc.

There are many new and used system options, how much money your guitar player's willing to spend?
Mine is using GLXD set up for about 4 years now with no issues, but I had different musicians on different systems in the past, mostly Shure (ULXP, UR, ULX, QLXD, ULXD). 1 guy with Line 6 had signal drop outs and another with Sennh G3 had a solid performance, but wired noises when his transmitter was off. I also have seen some violin and percussion players on AKG, which definitely could be used for WR guitar as well.

FYI the Shure GLXD system that has been recommended by a few folks on this thread works in the 2.4GHz bandwidth space so that might be a no-go for the guitarist friend of the OP. 
Sennheiser is always rock solid.  EW100 G4 wireless should be a great choice.

Correct - the 2.4 is a no go. The Senn EW100 G4 looks promising - thanks.

Since no one has mentioned it, be aware that Shure's ULX-D and QLX-D can cause interference with some guitars (and some microphones, for that matter).

Tell me more about the possible interference, please. What should I be aware of/watching for?
