The lead guitarist in my band uses AKG WMS40 and he loves it. I am considering making the same purchase, but I don't wanna look like a poser lol! I might look more into what Shure has to offer. But as the always say, "you get what you pay for."

I've heard only good things about this Line 6 unit, but it kills batteries in five hours which shouldn't be too much of a problem unless you're playing continuous 12-hour shows. http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Line6-X2-Digital-Wireless-XDR95-Instrument-Wireless-System?sku=271198

Why can't anyone give straight answers? Dude is asking for the best wireless system and he gets "do you need it" or "are you going to be running around onstage"? Come on, who cares, he wants advice AND wants to spend his own money!

nearly every "which distortion pedal should i get?" thread ends with "get a peavey classic 30."

straight answers are uncommon on UG, but this thread deserves one:

I have no idea, I just use a really long cable.

I believe it's the choice of Peter Stroud, guitarist for Sheryl Crow and recognised tone hound. He actually chose it over the cables he tried for tonal reasons!

I've used a a Nady system and a Shure in the past, so that's all i can really give to compare. So all I can really tell you is:
Don't buy from my Nady, my church made a POOR decision.
The Shure system worked absolutely fantastically.
#15
I've never used the Line 6 wireless, but I've looked into it myself, and its got a lot of REALLY good reviews from some pretty reliable sources. (magazines etc) The Shure SLX my school rented for our drama production was also really good. REALLY great tone. The Shure would be a good choice, and as far as I've found in my researching, the Line 6 is pretty reliable as well.

My bassist uses a PGX, and its good, but not great. I feel there's a little tone loss through it. He does too, but for shows he sacrifices the little bit of tone for the freedom. Practice and recording though he is always wired.
I'm Joel. I play guitar. I am a student. I look at the cost of tuition, not in a dollar value, but in the guitars I'm sacrificing now, to be able to buy later.

i dont like recomending specific wireless systems, but i do have some suggestions for you. first, spend as much as you can afford to (realisticly anyway). i wouldnt look at anything below $300 personally. systems under that dont have the features you need, suck tone, and are more likely to pick up interference.

now for features you want UHF and not VHF. higher frequencies are a bit less crowded and require a bit more work in the design. if a company is going to put in the effort to go UHF then it usually means they arent going to crap out on their product and take shortcuts.
second you want multiple channels. if youve only got one channel then if you start picking up some other radio, truckers or another guitar then you are screwed. changing channels can help with this problem, so multiple channels are a must for me.

that line 6 system fits all of my specs so its worth a look, and reviews seem very positive. shure and nady are two other companies that come to mind when i think of wireless, but i hear more about their really high end stuff being good. which means i dont know how their mid-grade stuff compares, and id still avoid the low end stuff even by these companies that make good products.

Kinda a silly question really isn't it? He's obviously not going to just buy it and just sit on his bed and play.

I have the AKG WMS40 with the Wireless 'Bug' Reciever, I got it really cheap from brand new and I think it's pretty dam good, although to be fair I don't have anything to compare it to.

One thing you will want to bare in mind is that if you more around alot you may want to tape the bug down to your guitar with some tape or something (I was moshing out a bit at a show the other week and the reciever was spinning around so much that the battery cover and battery flew out accross the stage and I had to run over and get it, lol)
