    Gentlemen,

    I have come to the conclusion, after tripping over my guitar lead whilst doing what i considered my best ever dance routine :p, that the time has come to go wireless....

    does anyone have any experience with the bug type transmitter compared to the back pack type?

    does it ever work loose in the middle of an energetic dance routine?

    thanks for your help

    :)

    Hmmm interesting....i've never used one and never seen one used either (other than the big international bands)....the local bands don't use them, but is sound quality affected ? and do they cost an arm and a leg ?

    the sound quality difference is apparently unnoticable (unless yer a top notch audiophile) and the cost is about £150.00 for a good UHF system (you can as always pay a lot more) :eek:

    well.... i went ahead and got the Sennheiser Freeport Instrument Set, UHF diversity system from imuso in london, here is a link to it

    http://www.imuso.co.uk/ProductDetail.asp?StockCode=PA00295

    paid £109.99 for it and approx £7.00 for next day delivery

    it turned up yesterday... i went to practice last night and it was so simple, it really was plug n play

    the sound was great and it also seemed to eliminate an annoying hiss i got from a certain patch on my boss gt5 board

    i recommend this unit if you are looking for a wireless guitar set up (however i cant compare it to any others as this is my first experience)
    :)

    I've no experience with wireless guitars but I have worked a lot with wireless mics. I've used Shure, Sony and Sennheiser. The best was Sennheiser. Battery life, sound quality and interference levels were all better. Mobile phones unfortunately will interfere with them all but hopefully you'll be turned up loud enough that that will not be a problem. I ran 28 Sennheiser during a show this year and I had no problems with any of the misc interfering with each other.

    Funny during one show we picked up Socttish Police during some dialogue, strange!
