    I'm looking for a cheap yet decent quality wireless system and was hoping a few of you guys could recommend one ? I'm just looking for one to bum around the house with with my new Postitive Grid Spark.

    I bought a Line 6 one but I could never get it to work.

    What's your issue with the Line6 one ?

    I've used lots of different wireless systems over the years and never could get along with the companding circuit of analog systems (as it changes the way the amps reacts to variations in your playing and what you do with guitar controls), so the L6 systems were a big improvement (as since they're digital they don't have any companding circuitry). I've used the G30 and now have both the G70 and G75 (I initially purchased the G75 and needed a 2nd transmitter, and got a G70 system for less than what the transmitter was costing). I'm super happy with it, A/Bed it several times with a good cable and couldn't find any difference in tone or feel.
    From my experience with wireless systems (I'm also a soundguy, so I get to work with higher-end systems ala Shure ULX-D and Axient or Sennhiser D6000 on a regular basis), you need to spend a lot of cash (as in, several thousands a pop) to get a good analog system that's on par with a cable. So the Line6 is a good choice unless you're playing arenas and stadiums on a regular basis.

    I bought a Shure and straight out the box wouldn't work, I returned it and bought Line 6 and have not had issues with it for a year and a half now.

    I've been using the Boss WL50 around the house, sometimes outside, with no problems. Works great through walls and you can crank your amps.

    When I used to do sound all the time, in the '80s/90s, we always had issues w/ wireless systems. People would do soundcheck & everything was perfect. As soon as the show started & the house lights came on - no wireless. If they had guitar & bass on wireless, they were always surprised, but we never were. They'd spend the 1st song trying to get the guitar/bass sound on.

    We'd always tell them, have a wire handy, just incase...

    I have a Rexer, that I bought, back, around '93? or so, that, was at the time cutting edge. They went from VHF to UHF in frequency range.

    Now, I see though, that a lot of those are illegal to use, since they made the digital moratorium, like w/ TV/radio, etc.

    But, the old analogue ones, could really hurt your signal. I hear a lot of people say that the L6 are very transparent, people that would have never used L6 otherwise...

    Maybe figure out why the L6 doesn't seem to work & run w/ it, once you get it going, or? :shrug:
