I have the Line 6 G90 but honestly any Line 6 unit works flawlessly :)

Digital wireless units have come a long way. Those old Nady UHF units are super reliable and can be scored very cheap on the used market.

I used an old Nady UHF for years (probably more like two decades) with no complaints.Added a touch of compression to my live tone, but rock solid and no drop outs.

I'd very much like to thank the three guys that have taken the time to pass on their advice to me.
I can't believe, though, how so few people on MLP have any experience or interest in this subject.
FWIW I've found a Bass forum which has at least twenty pages of posts discussing wireless systems!
There you go.
Thanks again chaps
PS I'll probably eventually go with the Smooth hound system as its' spec is pretty good, reasonably priced and I've yet to read a bad review. Also there seems to be fantastic customer support and they're based in the UK which is great for me.

I use the Line 6 G50, at @SteveC ’s recommendation. He couldn’t have been more right on! It works flawlessly.

And the transmitter is metal, not plastic, which increases durability.

I have been using the Sure GLX-D Digital Wireless System for a few years now & it has been perfect, would highly recommend.

I have been using the GLX-D for over a year now and have not had an issue at any venue. My last band, the second guitarist used one too and he had no issues either. My only complaint about the system is that it tended to spike the treble response of the guitar a bit but I have been able to compensate with my amp controls.

I never noticed a spike in the treble, I feel it sounds the same as if I used my PRS cable. To my ears it doesn't affect the tone but our ears are all different in our interpretation of sound.

I have a Line 6 G55 and it's great. Has a switch to simulate running through 25 ft cable which takes off a little of the high end. Or you can turn that off and get that sparkle back in. Great unit.

Another Line6 G30 user. Sounds great, like the normal 1/4" patch cable format. Battery life has been good. I use rechargeable AA's. A set last a 3 hour gig. I change in between wets on a 4 hour gig.

My only complaint is that the belt clip on my transmitter broke. I am picking up one of those holsters for it to protect it better.

All three of us guitar players (2 "regular" and the bass) in my band use the Line 6 stuff. Bass and I use the G10 and I think the other guitar uses a G30. Never had an issue.
