I should've known something was up when I opened the manual and it congratulates me on my "entry level" purchase. I took a chance on this inexpensive wireless setup and quickly realized you get what you pay for. I tried to use it in an outdoor gig, but it created a hissing sound and the slightest movement would be picked up, so I immediately went corded so save myself the embarrassment. The clip was plastic and cheap (a little duct tape to secure it in might do the trick). Bottom line, if you're getting paid to do a gig, leave this one at the house for practice.

GC and Nady Rocks

By 

from Waukesha, WI

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

WOW! Within 5 days of ordering on line,I received my Nady wireless system.I thought it would take weeks to arrive. Once I opened the package I grabbed my Taylor Acoustic, plugged in and started jammin'. The sound was much better than using a cord. The range was more than I expected. I play in a bluegrass/country band and play the guitar, banjo, mandolin and uke and now with the Nady system, no more tripping over cords during instrument changes. Just hit stand-by, unplug with NO POPPING, plug back in and go!!! Many thanks to Guitar Center for their swift delivery and Nady for a great product at a low price.

Good Product Use With Caution

By 

from Lomita Ca

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

The Nady DKW-1 System is fantastic. I love it. I will never go back to wires (never?). I plugged it in and jammed. After 5 minutes I heard crackling sounds, not loud but slight like frying bacon. I checked the connections. They were sound. I also make sure the wires where not bundled up because they are antennas. The crackling bacon went away. I jammed some more. Then I hear that loud POP! You know that sound you get when you unplug from an active amp. But I was not unplugging anything. I re-read the owner manual. Nothing. I jammed some more. This time, when I heard the pop, I noticed the low battery indicator light up. I changed the battery and all was well. I love it. But I would suggest you use with extreme caution during a live performance. Put a new battery in the transponder before the gig, and then change between sets. Don?t wait for the low battery indicator to light up. Use rechargeable batteries! Jim Lair

Once You Go Wireless, You'll Never Go Back

By 

from Lomita, Ca

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

Wow! After rigging the Nady DKW-1 into my system, my buddy, bassist, and sound engineer, who was as eager as I to see this in action, flipped the switch. Full on fidelity enriched our ears! It came with easy to follow instructions. At first we had a squelch. OUCH! The instruction had this covered. After a few recommended adjustments from the operator?s manual, we were flying. I will not go back to cables. And amazingly for darn near the same price as I spent on a 20 foot Monster Cable, which is the only cable I buy. With the great return policy at Guitar Center, how can you go wrong? Jim Lair

I Wouldn't Buy It If I Were You.

By 

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

This item catches a lot of people's attention when looking for anything in the wireless category because of its price. That's how I noticed it. Don't get me wrong, the features and functions on the back of the box are very appealing, but does the item follow through....? In my case... not at all. The range that this thing will give you is supposed to be 250 ft. with 500 ft. line of sight. I sat right next to the wireless system and it still cut out completely on me. I waited for it on backorder for eternity and once I got it, I only kept it for a few days. Then I was on my way back up to Guitar Center to return it. Unfortunately, it was the least reliable thing I have ever spent money on. When I was looking for a wireless system, this was the one I was going to get regardless of any bad reviews. I only focused on the good reviews. I don't want anyone else to make that mistake. I don't even recommend this to a beginner. I suggest you save your money a little longer and then buy something better.

Worked great for the price.

By 

from Kaukauna WI

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

So far so good with this. Had no drop in signal or tone. during a sound check I walked outside the place we were playing. Walked around the whole building with no loss of signal. During our gig I was all over the place. Never dropped a note. Only thing I found was it will eat batteries fast. Put a new one in at the start of the night. By the third set, I needed a new batter. I would suggest in investing in rechargeables. Otherwise, nice system for under $100.

Works great as wireless monitor too!

By 

from Lafayette CA

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

I use a personal monitor, which is inconvenient when the PA is more than 10-15 feet away (I would have to run cables from the PA to my monitor). I decided to try out this product to take the place of the cables and it works flawlessly! I just plug the guitar jack part into the PA output and plug my monitor into the receiver. The sound is every bit as good as with a cable (I haven't tested it beyond 20 feet yet, so we'll see if it works when performing at a large venue). Great product!

luck of the draw

By 

from Simsbury, CT

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

The one I received in the mail not only far exceeded my expectations, it is AWESOME !!! You can try it out at the GC store and make sure it works before you bring it home, or you do have 30 days to bring it back if you got a lemon. This sounds really nice through my Vox AC15C2 Amp and I am very happy I purchased it as NO MORE CORDS !!!!!!!!!!!!

Missing wire

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

Received it all zip tied in its very nice case...but missing the instrument to transmitter wire. Had it been missing the receiver to amp wire, I wouldn't have even blinked but I simply don't have a short 3.5mm locking to 1/4" male cable - go figure. Emailed Nady, not even a "thanks for your email". If I don't hear from them before GC opens tomorrow, it goes back and I've relearned "you get what you pay for" again for the nth time. Why do manufacturers put that "don't return it to the store" slip in the box anyway? Don't forget the most important, proprietary wire and I won't return it to the store for them to RTV!

Disappointment

By 

from Miami Fl

Comments about Nady DKW-1 VHF Wireless Guitar System:

Do yourself a favor. Don't waste your time and money on this product. It does not work. I stood less then a foot from the receiver and it cut out. No matter what I did it would not keep the signal. When I returned it to my Guitar Center store, the store employee said it was a peice of junk.
