My band has recently started to play live and well, the singer and i get pretty energetic. And we both have tripped over cables. I have one 20 and 50 foot cable. One to my wah and the other to my guitar. We haven't fallen or anything. But it's super annoying trying to play and to watch out for coiled up cables. Which makes me want to get a wireless. Now, I know I can't go cheap, and I'm not going to. And for all of you who say (I don't need it) Yes... yes I do. I've jumped into the crowd before, but not strayed very far cause of the cable. Also, is shure wireless good? I'm looking on musicians friend.

Another question I have is how do I get around the cell phone problem? I read on previous posts that it cause major haywire.... but other people say they don't have a problem. So could someone point me in the right direction. I'm willing to spend 500 or more on one. As I am a tone nazi, but I do realize with wireless I will lose some. And I'm okay with that.

be sure to use $250+ on it. cheap ones add hiss and color your tone a bit.

im gonna build a buffer that goes after my guitar, and use a 50ft cable with no tone loss.

Okay. I saw a **** load of shure wireless systems ranging from like 300-1100. I dont think I;ll spend over 700 for a wireless though. Unless it does somehting the other models cant?

Can you also give me a model that'd be good? I'm reading some shure stuff but alot have these two input, channels etc... I just want a GOOD one that goes from my guitar to the amp.

imo, wireless is just too big of a purchase if you can just use a longass cable and a line driver.

I'd guess I may lose 5% of my signal using my Audio Technica wireless (though I have heard that some cheaper units are much worse). Mine's a VERY SLIGHT loss, & IMO, well worth it. You can dial up a touch more pre-amp or presence to retain your tone.
To TS- Be sure to get a receiver unit that has multiple antennas/diversity (usually 2 are fine). If one antenna gets a weird signal, it'll default to the other antenna so fast you don't even know it happened.

So.
Find a reciever that has 2 antenna. More than $300. And one with range? Or is it the same range for all?

Ranges will vary, but many will start to get a signal delay if you're more than about 60-80 feet away, but that varies. My AT system can go a bit farther, but over 100 ft, you'll very likely have some delay. Higher priced systems will most likely have more power & greater range.
