Digital wireless for under $200!
Brace DWG1000 Digital Wireless Guitar System is a truly professional system that's currently on tour with many top bands. The Brace DWG1000X provides all the benefits you expect from a quality digital wireless system—full bandwidth with extended low-frequency response for basses; all the channels you need; and a super simple setup with better-than-rackmount performance.
A breakthrough in wireless technology, the Brace DWG-1000 blows away traditional analog wireless systems and gives you something cables can't: Natural tone AND freedom to roam the stage or control room.
Frequency response of 10Hz to 15kHz delivers thunderous lows and crystal-clear highs rivaling the most expensive audio cables without the static, pumping, breathing, and dropouts found in dynamics-destroying companding and other side effects of analog systems. Brace Audio's unique internal dome antenna design helps immensely for drop out avoidance and also prevents antenna breakage.
The DWG-1000 is rugged and a no-brainer to use. ALL Automatic Channel Selection and Locking transparently links the transmitter to the receiver the moment the units are powered on. Depending upon conditions, up to twelve DWG-1000 Digital Wireless Systems can be used simultaneously onstage and up to six DWG-1000-TX transmitters can link to a single DWG-1000 receiver.
Operating at 2.4 GHz, the DWG-1000 includes a declaration of conformity, so you'll never worry about your wireless being confiscated when traveling internationally and is certified for use in USA, Canada and the EU.
The best part? DWG-1000x is the most affordable system on the market allowing you to pair a DWG-1000 TX with multiple instruments onstage.

This is not the perfect wireless sytem but it is the most perfect one for the price.
I always wanted to go wireless and not spend more than my GUITAR was. I tried the xd95 line6 and found the range to be poor. That one was dropping out the sound about 3/4 of the way down the isle at our church that seats about 375.
The DWG wireless system had no problem anywhere in the sanctuary, even from the balcony. The DWG also sounded more open (less compressed) when playing through it. I play it through a zoom a2.1a pedal to make my cheap guitar sound like a more expensive one also.
It takes two double A batteries in the transmitter. Those seem to last about 3 weeks of three hours practice and one hour of performance (close to 10 - 12 hours).
It would be great if it had 1/4 inch input on the transmitter instead of the 1/8 inch. I think 1/4 would hold up better. Also if it had a switch for ON OFF on the transmitter you could save on batteries between songs etc. To turn it off, you unplug it at the receiver.
It is plastic so it may break if you drop it so be careful. I could say the same for almost any of my gear. No problems with it. I would like to see the jacks be upgraded to larger versions to make them more rugged.
For the money, there is no way for the pro wireless units to compete. I am not traveling around an arena with it so the coverage is just about perfect for me. Pro units would be around three times the price and may be better on battery or range but still, for this price, wireless, really?
Pros: - Truly, plug it in and use it, as advertised.- I have had ZERO noise or interference issues.- I have heard "someone" on the net mention "something" about latency. There is NONE.- Price is great, a mold breaker for "you get what you pay for". You get more here and, sorry MF, besure to shop around. The company is small and seems to be learning about protecting the price on this product. I found this at $175 w/ free shipping.- I have been letting anyone in my musical environment use this for sessions to see how it stands up to differing Electric, Acoustic, and Bass systems. It has do great.- This system is transparent in the audio chain, FOR SURE.Cons:- No On/Off switch. It must be unplugged at the 1/8" jack end to turn off or mute (my "Features" 1/2 point off).- The verdict is not in on battery life. Lacking the 0/1 switch it seems you may need batteries on hand, though they are easy to change.
Without the cable holding you like a dog on a leash, you can wander around. I use it at church on acoustic guitar. I had a hard time finding anyone who reviewed it for acoustic. The sound is great, not compressed. I tried the line 6 xd 95 system and found the sound quite different from a cable, chopping off the high end and sounding compressed. The line 6 also did not have the range this one did, it would cut out about halfway down the isle at church, around 50 feet or so. I have the receiver located in the front and can play from the back in the balcony with no problems. Just a little latency with the added distance. Not enough to make it a problem. The sound is very clear and natural. I will use it for electric too but I have not put it through its paces there. I have used it for two rehearsals and two services so far without having to change batteries yet.Sure I would like to see what the shure wireless would do but I don't yet own a guitar that expensive and a taylor 314ec is where those funds would go if I had them... I would have a hard time appreciating anything that worked or sounded better than this system.Very few controls, easy to use, plug it in and it is on automatically. I put it low for features and quality for a couple of reasons.I would like to have a switch to turn it off to save on batteries between uses. In church, we play for a few minutes, sit for a while play again, sit again .... If I leave it plugged into the transmitter, I would use an hours worth of battery for only about 15 - 20 minutes of playing. I would loose even more battery life if the preacher is especially passionate about the sermon that week.... For quality, since the plug has to be put in and out every time you use it, I imagine the 1/8 inch plug would wear faster than a 1/4 inch would (smaller parts are more fragile than larger ones - at least I think so).The cases are either glued or fused together instead of having any screws to service it if it did have any issues. I am one of those guys that will be able to cobble something back into service if it quits or breaks for some reason. That would make it pretty hard to repair and have it look right.The cable could be replaced but it is a trs 1/8 to trs 1/4. The cable works fine in my telecoustic and martin dcx1e. I have to leave it about 3/16th of an inch from all the way plugged in on my Fender Kingman acoustic electric, not sure why but I suspect the trs is causing it not to be connected at the right spot when it is all the way inserted. But it holds fast in that position. The clip seems like it would hold fine but I use a couple of straps of velcro instead because I just do not trust plastic clips all that much. I trust myself even less and expect I would mash up against something trying to fit through a door and crack it off...I may try to fashion some sort of switch and slim foil thing that would fit between the battery and the connection (one contact on either side of the foil) so I can turn it off without plugging and unplugging. I like the transmitter at the back of the strap so it is not a convenient place to plug and unplug. For the money, it is a great system compared to what other capable wireless systems run. For the features it has and how it is built, it would be a no-brainer at about $129 if they would or could lower the price to be competitive with the line 6 xd 95. You really have to have the extra 200 to spend and no other gear lusts or a very deep desire to go wireless at the 200 price point. I can think of a dozen other ways to spend $200, like saving up for that taylor...So if you are looking for wireless that works and sounds great, even if you have 600 to spend, try this one, save the $400, if you can not figure out any other way to spend it, feel free to send it to me for my Taylor fund.
