Brilliant (and tiny) bit of kit,
This review is from: Classic Wireless Guitar System
I'd tried a couple of cheaper wireless systems in the past, but wasn't impressed - they significantly affected the tone of the guitar, and they added noise. This is a fantastic little system - just plug it in, turn it on, and it sounds almost exactly the same as using a cable. If anything, it sounds a fraction brighter and clearer, but there's an optional setting to simulate the effect of various cable lengths if you want to use it (though I prefer the default setting). I've been using it with electric and acoustic guitars (both steel-string and classical) - it's great for all of those. I didn't think I really needed a wireless system, but I'm now a convert, especially for gigs where it's very helpful for (a) not tripping over my guitar lead, or getting other people tangled up in it, and (b) wandering out the front during sound checks to see what the band sounds like.
The transmitter is tiny (so you hardly notice it's there) but very sturdy and nicely made from metal. The receiver unit is also metal, and smaller than you'd expect, with bargraph displays for signal strength, transmitter battery life, and interference level. The system chooses the wireless channels automatically to avoid interference with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other digital wireless units, and seems to work flawlessly in that regard - I can get the interference indicator to show a bar or two if I put my phone right next to the receiver (with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth active on my phone) but I've not heard even the slightest amount of audible interference coming through the system.
It's a very refreshing change to see a product like this being made in the UK, too.
All-in-all, highly recommended!
