    You can always use a little extension if the device does not fit in the slanted strat-type jack so you can run it up to the guitar strap a bit so it is more couch-friendly...

    I'm going to get this soon so I will let you know if it a good or not? A guy orders my stuff because he has a account and then he gets paid from us.

    I think you'll have fun with them! I like the freedom of being able to go into the kitchen and make a sandwich whilst jamming, ha!

    Strats have a Padilla inspired jack plate. You can drive a car over it and they never pull out.

    I would like to know if they are frequency hopping or direct for coupling. If direct would probably take a pass.....gonna be trying reject every cell phone signal in the area. If frequency hopping, might better reject outside signals.

    This isn't an answer to your question, but I have the xvive u2 units, and the transmitter can fit into the strat jack, but my tremolo arm needs to be in a higher resting position and I could see some players finding that somewhat obstructing. I am used to having my tree arm relatively tight, so when I am not using it, I push it down as far as possible and it stays put. It almost interferes with the second tone knob's access, but I can do alright with that limitation.

    Hey, no lefty wisecracks, please! ;)

    I just ran into a video review of some less expensive wireless units. It's only a couple months old so should be current models. Only watched parts of it and jumped to the end but the guy has used them for years and seems to know what he's talking about.
    He recommends buying two sets, in two different frequency bands, so one will work when the other doesn't. He recommends one for $60 and one for $40 so $100 for two sets.

    Interesting video. Still glad I settled on the brown Ammoons. Might think about getting the 2.4 as well if we ever start gigging again.
    If I use it with a Strat, I can fold it down away from the arm if it gets in the way.

    In theory it should work.

    I've dealt with tons of wireless over the years. Our theater would buy batteries by the case. It's amazing how fast batteries can go. If you're using rechargeable types, keeping them powered up is imperative. I don't implicitly trust wireless completely. That's adding in layers of potential thing that could go wrong. I trust a wire. Sure, wireless gives you a lot of freedom of movement, but I'd rather have a circuit I can trust.

    Eventually, there may be issues with the FCC. All transmitters are supposed to be licensed. Due to the low output power of these, it may not a problem---yet. The spectrum is limited, and crowded. That's why we went to digital TV and radio transmitting as they take far less room than analog. The space is needed for cellular phone traffic, Blue Tooth devices, and the like.

    Been using a set for over a year. Some amps don't like them and you'll get an audible whine. Other than that, they've never failed as long I I charge them beforehand. They are perfect for rehearsals.

    Just get it. If you've done some research on that price range, and are not going to spend more than $50 bucks, this really isn't even a discussion. The major difference with low cost wireless systems, and high cost systems is going to be range.

    Wireless has its place. Cords seem to multiply in the dark. Even simple solo recording; guitar, a couple of mics, headphones or in ear monitors and soon you are stepping on, over and around cables. I played in a trio for a few years where we had a single vocal mic and stepped into it when it was our turn. It was a constant Texas Two Step over instrument cables. The other guitar player and I used a wireless setup. It is a Line6 XDS95 UHF setup bought on close out. It is bigger than these but worked well for our needs. I've 'reversed' how its connected and use in for my in ear monitors. I am considering using something like this for recording.

    I got what I wanted and it is great. And I do not need another set.
