No it should be fine in that context - and it obviously is for you.

[quote="Music Wolf

If you're going to use wireless this way then I suggest that you go the whole hog and wear leather pants (which look really good with your gut hanging over your belt).[/quote]

:bouncy: :D Haha, fortunately the expanding gut syndrome hasn't bestowed itself on myself & the rest of the band (thus far).

My rational for a wireless system is that I do a lot of switching between guitar & keyboards. Good chance of tripping over a guitar lead. Also, less chance of a 240 volt thrill if the venue has dodgy electrics.

I decided to go for the Line 6 system that Wonks mentioned. Thanks again for all the replies & info. :thumbup:

I've owned that line6's little brother (G30) for a couple of years now. the only dropout I've had was due to the cable I was using.

I'm also one of those who likes to wander out into the audience :wave: and the 1st thing I do during sound/line check is to see how far I can move from the receptor (to avoid dropouts)

latency wise, I don't know the msecs but I can say that on IEM's I could play perfectly.

Overall the Line6 wireless units are a good choice. However be aware that on some models at the cheaper end of the range there have been problems with the battery door on the transmitter unit. Check the reviews before you make a choice.

yes, G30 like mine show that issue commonly (not to me, fortunately). people is moving to the G10 instead that does not need a battery.

Delivered today at noon........at 6 pm i gave up on trying to get this thing up & running. Will not pair with the transmitter most of the time & when it does (After 50 seconds of turning the transmitter on) it makes a high pitched screeching noise.

Have yet to be able to get any sound on the odd occasion when it does connect.

Looks like a return. :headbang:

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.

Clearly a faulty unit, will you ask for an exchange unit or a refund?

Did you ask Andertons to test the replacement before sending it out? I've done that with a faulty FX pedal and they did.

Also be aware that the Line6 G75 unit failed a German broadcast compliance test and supposed to be in the process of being updated to conform. However a year on and there is no sign of updated units or any information about what is going to happen to all the non-compliant ones already out there. This might be the reason why they are such "good value" in the UK at the moment...
