    I'm new to the concept of Wireless Systems of any kind but thought the idea was pretty cool and in a local shop I saw this for $100 and thought it would be pretty cool. I've owned it for about a month now and it's exceeded expectations (given the avg price of similar products being much higher). What prompted me to write a review is earlier today I dropped it down the stairs where my friend immediately stepped on it by accident. Seeing the bent antenna I assumed it was dead but after straiting the antenna and plugging it up, it's worked just fine the last few hrs of jamming. And I did test it's range walking all through the house and even outside and it's got great range. I'm not around others with wireless systems so I can't judge it's interference but I've had no problem at with this. (also I have trouble getting WiFi to work at my house b/c of interference, and the same thing with FM/AM radio so I'm shocked this has worked given those problems)

    Have never been able to get the squelch and transmitter adjusted so that I can move around without interference. I get it adjusted so it works in close proximity and if I walk 10 feet away from the receiver, I get interference. Not good if you are soloing. I use the best 9V batteries (Energizers) and they last about 3 hours maybe 4 if you shut the transmitter off when you take a break. Since this was my first wireless system and it was cheap, I wasn't expecting much so my expectations were pretty close to what I got, not much!

    Comments about Digital Reference DR-1500 VHF Guitar Wireless System T4:

    I have this and i do not like it at all. i tried to use it for a show the other day after i bought and i unplugged it during sound check. this would be good for practicing or just jamming with friends but do not buy it and expect to use it for a concert.it just makes a loud screeching noise at random times,almost kind of like feedback.but the only way to stop it is by turning your amp onto stand-by.i dont recommend buying this.you get what you pay for.

    Wireless on a budget

    By Mr. Laff

    from Redding, CA

    Comments about Digital Reference DR-1500 VHF Guitar Wireless System T4:

    I own 3 wireless guitar systems ranging from a fairly expensive Samson to this economical unit. I must admit that I prefer this little baby over the others (I let my bass player use the Samson). Yes, there was a necessary EQing of my setup, as this thing added a little bit of mids and high end, but once I made the necessary adjustments it sounded great! I use it in practice and for gigs without ANY dropouts or interference. I love the freedom from cords almost as much as I like the 9v battery lasting 15 hours!

    I'ved owned this for about a week now. It is excellent. The other guitarist in my band has a $250 wireless system and I would actually prefer mine over his. Its really a great system.

    Not That Bad

    By Shifty Poo 269

    from Fort Worth, Tx

    Comments about Digital Reference DR-1500 VHF Guitar Wireless System T4:

    I've had this thing for a few years now and it still works like new, even after being dropped, slung around, and the antenna stepped on repeatedly. The only bad things I've experienced is a very slight tone suck, cuts out when near alot of metal (you have to be right up against it)and it got CBS wether once before a gig once but it stopped when Iturned it on. So, all in all its a pretty good system

    Great Wireless

    By SD ZAKK MF

    from hawii

    Comments about Digital Reference DR-1500 VHF Guitar Wireless System T4:

    I rate features 5.0 because its wireless and it works, that is features enough for me. The reason I rate the quality 3.5 is does degrade your tone slightly but I would definitely use it for gigs. It has EXCELLENT range. Buy it. Now.

    Comments about Digital Reference DR-1500 VHF Guitar Wireless System T4:

    gets interference when you don't want it .chews through batteries and kills your instruments tone. doesn't like the b string on a 5-string bass or drop tuned basses.gave it to my guitar player and switched back to cords.
