As effective for basses as for guitars.

The system's cable emulator feature allows you adjust virtual cable lengths to get sound response just like a cable.

  • Great System!

    As reviewed by Professional Speaker on 4/13/2010

    I have used the G2 system for over 5 years around the country in convention centers. I thought the G2 system was wonderful - never experiencing any problems, and was slightly upset when I had to replace a fully functional unit due to the new frequency regulation. After receiving my unit, and using it only once, I was glad I made the jump to G3! It is noticably better on many levels. Great product, fair price, great store, excellent service!

  • Great sound

    As reviewed by Lee Cruz on 1/26/2013

    I do not use high dollar cables, I typacally use live wire. I bought this because i was tired of getting the cord tangled and having to roll it up every time i finished jamming. This thing sounds way better than live wire cables. That is the only comparison i can give. I did purchase the AKG WNS 40 mini, but returned that 2 days later and got this. Was not really wanting to spend this much but glaad i did. I t has descent range. the furthest i have tested is about 80', that was in the house, from one side to the other and it had no issues. Ther only bad thing is that for the price it should come with the rack mount kit, and rechargable batteries. but not to bigga deal. I willeventually get some recharable energizers or something. Also will make my own rack mounts for it because the price is rediculous for a few pieces of metal. That is why i give it 4 stars.

  • Best system for the money

    As reviewed by MICHAEL COAR on 1/23/2014

    I've tried many cheaper wireless guitar systems over the years, and had nothing but trouble with them such as issues with pops and clicks and range. This system is absolutely great. Easy to set up, it automatically finds a quiet frequency, has good squelch, great sound quality, and quiet. No pops or clicks and it has plenty of range.
