Gearank High Notes

Drawing from their digital audio processing expertise, Line 6 produces reputable wireless systems that are specifically designed for guitars.

This wireless system features the 4th iteration of the company's wireless technology, utilizing the 2.4GHz bandwidth at 24-bit digital conversion.

It also features DCL (Digital Channel Lock) Technology which improves signal clarity and stability by blocking out third-party signals like, Wi-Fi routers, mobile devices, laptops and more.

The dynamic range, and frequency response of this system is tweaked to better accommodate guitars and basses.

There's also a nifty feature called "Cable Tone" which emulates the high-frequency roll-off characteristics of physical guitar cables.

Pros

Being an awesome wireless system nicely summarizes market response to the Line Relay G55. Most of the positive reviews are from guitarists, but there are also bassists who report no-hiccup performances with both standard electric bass and even upright ones. One user even put the G55 system to the test by running the system on a parade, and it passed with flying colors, considering that there would've been a lot of interference as they moved through streets. Durability are also prominently mentioned by those who have used the system for years.

Cons

There are a few users who are concerned about the guitar cable, and one even recommended buying a back-up cable from Line 6 just to be on the safe side.
