I realize that using a guitar cable is the cleanest way to go. Unfortunately, I tend to wrap cables around my ankles or even worse, step on them and yank it out of my bass!
I had used an analog NADY Wireless for over 25-years but when the TV world switched to digital, I started getting interference and needed to replace it.
In my band I'm the only wireless player, but in church I'm one of 8. I needed a wireless system that could locate and lock on a clear channel quickly. The PGX14 system does just that with a push of a button.
I just bought the PGX14 last Friday. The sound coming out of my rig sounded great last weekend on both my gig and in church. I had a few of my musician buddies comment on how "Full" my Bass sound was. I was thrilled to finally retire my guitar cable!
You have to remember to set your channel with all of the other wireless systems turned on to locate a "clear" channel.
All of my basses are Passive. So I can't discount what some of the negative reviews reported.
The PGX14 system delivers a good, clean signal to your board or amp.
It's only been a week, but I'm very pleased with my purchase.

This unit is marketed as a guitar/bass wireless but it does not work for basses with active electronics. It can?t handle a hot signal and it clips way to easy. You will have to adjust you instrument and playing style to accommodate the unit and that is wrong. Also, there is no way to adjust the signal out (no attenuator)on the transmitter, and no volume adjustment on the receiver. I returned it and bought the AKG 450 which has both of those feature and costs nearly the same amount of money. The AKG 450 blows this unit away. There is no comparison. Also, the AKG 450 signal quality is phenomenal. Bass players don?t waist your time.

Pretty Awesome.

By theonecalledjoe

from Southington OH

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

Overall this is an awesome system. Highly recommend getting it. I actually like my tone better with the system then with my cable. Lets you run around on stage and whatnot. My only complaint is that it says you can change the channels on it to cope with interference from cell phones etc. but when i do the noise is still there. This has only happened to me once and i actually had to switch back to using a cable midset because the interference got to be so bad.
Great responce and range.
Great work. System seems strongly built mine came with a great carrying case. I've dropped the bodypack and receiver a couple times and they still work great. This system has seen plenty of gigs.

A Must Buy!

By Tyler Phillips

from Wisconsin

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

I just got this wireless not too long ago and it works much much better than I thought. I am so happy with it. I walked out of my house and down 5 blocks and it was still working crystal clear. It probably would have worked further than that even! The set-up is simple (Just turn it on) and it works. A great product to have!

Lots of hiss, No Sustain

By Mezzy Shredder

from New Jersey

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

After reading the reviews here, I decided to give it a shot and purchase the Shure PGX14 Guitar Wireless System, despite what I had read. All of what I read was unfortunately true. As soon as I hit a chord, I could immediately could notice a slight difference in tonality. Their was barely any sustain when holding a note. The notes died almost immediately. Their was a loud hissing with my amp turned up only a little. I play Extreme Metal and notice that their is some sort of built in filter that takes away from the original feel of the notes as opposed to not using the wireless. You also have to align the frequency every time you put the transmitter on mute. They say it is a mute, however it works more like power switch because you have to realign the transmitter with the receiver every time it is put on mute. This seems tedious at a gig that you only have a few minutes to set up at. I decided to take it back and just go back to the cable.

Nice sound, but no sustain!

By dleewilson

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

I got this as a Christmas present, but after using it a few times, I am taking it back. I was impressed with the frequency response...nice and clear. But the sustain is terrible! I hit a chord, and after about a second, it dies out. I thought it might be something else in my setup, but when I went back to a chord with the same conditions, the problem went away. So if you want good fidelity at an affordable price, then this is the unit for you. However, if you want your notes to hang in the air for a little while after you play them, then stay away from the PGX14!

Not all it's cracked up to be....

By Stratmaster724

from Alexandria, LA

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

I wanted a good quality, well performing system that could replace my cables and free me from my leash....What i got with this Shure system was an excellent quality, high performing system with some kind of annoying Automatic noise gate thing that killed the sustain on my guitar, even when using a compressor/sustainer. Traded it in at the music store for an Audio-Technica Freeway system. Much happier with the adjustable gain on the AT. It was very easy to setup and use, but Shure, if you'll make the gate adjustable, you'll have it whipped!

Awesome Wireless Unit!

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

My band has 3 and we love them. We have them all rackmounted and we are very pleased with the tone quality and range of this unit. The only flaw is the body pack does not have a display to show the life of the batteries. Besides that, great item!

Great Entry / Mid Level wireless system

By Prashanth

from Washington DC

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

Having switched to a wireless system from using monster cables (amidst trepidation of losing tonality), I must say, this unit has impressed me quite a bit. Setup was a breeze, tone remains rock solid (well...almost)...because, you will lose a small amount of bass/body in the process..but barely noticable unless you're jamming by yourself ....to a wall.I did find that the three gain settings, 0 db, +10 db, and -10 db on the wireless transmitter is best if left at 0db, but you can juice it up by adding more gain, but you might want to reduce some gain on the preamp side or the distortion drive side to prevent the sound from getting too hot and sounding sterile. The battery life is about 8 hours (of playing) as the manual says...so keep a pack o duracells ready.Over all, a great product, and comes with a moderately solid carrying case with it as well.

Can't Imagine Playing Without One Now!

By JaliscoKid

from Oceanside , Cal

Comments about Shure PGX14 Wireless Guitar/Bass System:

All these years I have played attached with cords and knew no different. I feel like I just got my first car. Free to go where I please. The sound quality is unbelievable! Just the feeling of the "leash" removed is incredible. WOW! I recommend this unit. Worth the money spent. Get one!
