Great System For The Money!

Comments about Nady W-1KU Instrument Wireless System:

Im a professional touring guitarist who's been in the business for over 30 years...I've owned no less than 5 wireless units, going all the way back to the old "Nady 49" system (remember that one?)... I just sold a Shure PGX14 to get this unit... this blows the Shure away, with tons more features for 30 bucks cheaper.... you wont find a better wireless for the money... construction is VERY solid.. all metal, even the belt pack, which is a rarity for a wireless in this price range... it has 1000 channels to select from, so you will never have a problem finding a clear channel... the battery life is AMAZING... and with the unit using 2 AA batteries, it wont break the bank like 9v does...finally the feature that sealed the deal for me was the beltpack has an LED display, with battery life meter... awesome! oh, and the sound is great too, no change in my tone at all, and I'm a tone freak... buy this unit, you wont regret it at all...
Im only giving this section an 8 because like most units in this price range, the guitar cable is cheap quality (mostly the jack)... they should use Switchcraft or something more like that...

Best for the money

By AP-08iZR

from Northern California

Comments about Nady W-1KU Instrument Wireless System:

This thing is what all other wireless's strive to be. 20 gigs in and I have seen no signal loss, no drop outs, no distortion and no noticeable tone loss. Also the battery life is crazy good. To be pro active I had been changing batteries before each gig even though it didn't show a drain. Then I decided to see how long the batteries would last...haven't changed the batteries for the last 5 gigs. Each gig 4 to 4 1/2 hrs. 20+ hours on 2 AA batteries. The receiver and transmitter are metal cased. A Heavy duty clip on the transmitter WON'T come off of your strap or pocket. If you're a working musician this is the wireless you want.
