I was concerned after reading them that I would be disapointed with the pg14 system. Not the case. The cases for both the reciever and the transmitter are light weight and not designed to be abused or thrown around. In todays day of electronics lighter and smaller are the trend and that is what this unit offers. The quality of electronic circuitry is similiar to Shure high end gear and signal decay is miminal. (Not noticeable) It has performed exactly as advertised. I use this wireless with an Ampeg BA 210 bass amp on the road and it is simple and reliable. The signal is very clear. I made a tray for the reciever that velcro's to the top of my amp. (I my opinion, that is the way to go.) The component durability is average to good and like most wireless systems dependent on a good quality battery. This wireless system will no doubt handle any sound requirements for live performance.

The key term being "AT THIS PRICE POINT", it will do the trick for any typical instrumentalist who wants to do away with the patch cable.
I've owned the unit two days and I've already decided to take it back and upgrade to a higher model in the digital series. My initial intention was to buy a Samson Airline Synth system (which uses a 'bug' plugged directly into the instrument) at a $500.00-or-so price but I just happened to see the Shure PG gear on sale for $250 so I thought I'd try it and save some dough. I did not at first take to the belt-pack idea but realized that it is much cheaper to replace a 2' cable than to replace a whole 'bug' should something go wrong. It may be worth mentioning that the Samson is an awesome system but is soon to be discontinued.

Final word? If your only intention is to use it for practicing and garage rehearsals even some light gigging, this model will probably do just fine. For those more involved musicians like myself, a higher-up model like the PGX-D or SLX would better fit the bill.
Being a very basic analog system, the limited 10 channels are the extent of it. Inside the 9V battery-powered belt pack, there is an attenuation switch -10dB, and a button with which to sync the channels to the main receiver On top, you find the 'mute' button which doubles as the power button if held in. Nothing fancy, very simple.
Shure makes some excellent stuff, but this particular piece doesn't quite stack up to most of the other products of theirs that I've worked with. The range is great, but even standing 5 feet from the receiver, I found that the sound dropped off WAY too soon. I tried changing batteries, changing channels, changing guitars and there was still an audible loss of sound almost immediately after strumming which was not the case when I plugged the guitar directly into the amp, always on 'clean'.

There was not a whole lot of hissing and no interference that I could detect.
At this price point, this is about the best you can get. Should one look into the more advanced digital systems though, you'd find that this unit is largely outclassed.
However, the circuitry and all the connections are built solidly and definitely made to withstand use, and if ever something WERE to happen with the connectors, each piece is inexpensive to replace.
Although it is a very sturdy unit, the bottom line is that the sound just doesn't cut it for me.

Comments about Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System:

I purchased this particular item new for a great discount (due to it being replaced/upgraded). I was fortunate to be able to try this before I bought it.

I was really impressed. It was out of the box and setup in 2 min. A 'Strat' to a Marshall 'Champ'. Shure even includes a Duracell 9V Battery too. I was looking for a replacement for those horredous guitar cables. I am in a constant struggle keeping them funcnctional. I may have a 'Cable Demon', but it seems about every third time I play electric guitar (just sitting on a stool), I have to get the soldering gun out. I only buy top brand cables. But me and cables just don't get along.

My expectations of a Guitar Wireless System was low and I was desperate. However, the results were amazing to me. This lightweight transmitter is hardly noticeable. There was never any hum, crackling, cut-outs, etc. TOTAL FREEDOM to walk around, hell' go walk around the house, I blew my family away as I went to talk to my daughter and wife on the other side - my Fender BandMaster sounded great 50 feet away. Wow... I wish I got this earlier.

It is lightly built from plastic, but really that's cool as the small transmitter is hardly noticable. I attched it to the front of my guitar strap. It has a few operating channels. On/Off lights and a 'low-battery' warning.

I admit that I am biased to Shure, as I have always found those SM-57 and 58 mics irreplaceable gear, as-well-as one of the best values ever.

If you never gone wireless, I really recommend this PG-14... And I believe Shure has proven it is a name to trust.

    Not quite good enough yet

    Comments about Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System:

    This being my first unit, the liberty is great. I play Gibson LeaPaul and JCM 900 and there is a loss of sustain but it's not noticeable playin live. The short battery time (3.5hrs max)is the problem. For that reason alone I find this unit below my expectations of Shure. Try the Line 6, same costs, same quality, better battery life

    Decent

    By Fredley_Banyon

    from Indiana

    Comments about Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System:

    I have owned this wireless system for almost a year and a half now after i bought it off our old bassist. This product has good range, i am able to play upstairs with my amp being in the basement. I play through a Peavey 5150 so it does work with my high gain equipment. The only problem with this wireless system is that it cuts the sustain of your playing and causes the sound to "die" a lot faster than playing with a cable. It is fine for the time being but i am definitely going to invest in a better quality wireless system down the road.

    Great product for the $$$

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System:

    I just received mine in the mail today. I am very satisfied and somewhat surprised. I have heard about how these wireless setups lower the volume, can't handle gain, etc. I do not see these issues. In fact, the volume seems to be a touch louder. Tone is not compromised, nor is any part of the sound compromised. I took my guitar and plugged it in to the wireless and then used a cord to compare and I can't hear any difference in the sound. This thing isn't cheap, but it is a great product for the money.

    The Bottom Line is...

    By Paul-h4JAz

    from Charlotte, NC

    Comments about Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System:

    This unit simply just cannot handle high gain whether it be clean or distorted. My guitarist in my band purchased the unit, never really used it and handed it off to me to use if I felt like it.I play a Paul Reed Smith CE-24 through a Marshall JCM900 with a 1960a cabinent. Needless to say when I switch to my distortion patch with the gain very high, the unit cannot handle it.

    Great

    Comments about Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System:

    This product works very well and ive walked all the way down my driveway to play. Everything sounds awesome and way better than the other wireless i had bought. They only thing is that the battery (9v) seems to die only about after 3 hours of play? Which really is bad since i keep having to put in a new battery everytime i go to practice.
