OVERVIEW

Portable guitar wireless system.

Set yourself free with the Alesis GuitarLink Wireless system. Compact, clear sounding, and easy to use, GuitarLink Wireless provides unrestricted action as you move about the stage with your guitar or bass. The unique receiver is battery powered, and small enough to sit anywhere”even in your pedal board!

All-In-One Transmitter
Powered by two AAA batteries, the GuitarLink Wireless transmitter is compact and unobtrusive, so it won™t interfere with your playing. The attached cable plugs directly into your guitar or bass. Using the integrated metal clip, the GuitarLInk Wireless transmitter can attach to either your strap, or right to your belt for added comfort.

Compact Receiver
Unlike bulkier wireless receivers, the GuitarLink Wireless receiver is compact, and is also powered by two AAA batteries. This rare combination provides added versatility, so you can put the receiver almost anywhere. Set it on top of your amp. Mount it to your pedal board. Place it in your effects rack. The GuitarLink Wireless receiver is ready for anything. Bypass the batteries with the external power adapter for a more permanent setup.

Effortless and Efficient
The GuitarLink Wireless system operates in the reliable 2.4 GHz frequency spectrum to provide a clear signal free from interference. After turning both units on, simply press the Pairing buttons on both units to make the connection. Next, adjust the output volume on the receiver. Nothing could be easier.

I bought this as SDOTD for a deeply discounted price, figuring I could always return it. I still have it, though, and it has held up so far in practice situations.

In my band, I have to sing, play guitar, and, now, control the mixing board. When I was tethered by a cable, moving across stage was impossible. Now I can walk out in front of the stage during sound checks (while playing my guitar part with the band) and listen to the mix. If need to make adjustments, I can walk to the board without tugging a guitar cable in the process.

The signal clarity is pretty darn good. There is some "latency" as others have noted (a slight pause before the signal arrives), but this is minimal and will not make a difference in live situations, which is where you'll probably use anyway, right?

I am not sure why others had trouble with the setup, but I put in the batteries (which were included) and turned on both pieces and VOILA! it lit up like a christmas tree. The transmitter (part you wear on your person) has a 3' cable attached and requires those batteries. The transmitter has a metal clamp that permits you to slide it onto your belt, back pocket, or a thin guitar strap, but if you use a thick guitar strap then you will have some difficulty sliding this thing on.

The base piece requires a power supply (included), so this product is ideally suited to pedal board situations or sitting atop an amp (which you should have plugged into a power conditioner--right?). You should use short patch cables to connect it to the signal chain or amp so that you'll reduce impedance and radio interference.

My concerns: I am worried about gigging with this thing for two reasons: 1) In a bar situation where everyone has their phones on and bar has cordless phones and tons of electronics, I wonder just how clear this thing will sound. That will be the first test. 2) I worry about its durability. Both the transmitter and base are constructed of a very light plastic, which means there is undoubtedly some printed circuit board inside that is vulnerable to any stress (e.g., while packed inside a cable bag) let alone some lumbering band mate with few beers in him/her who stumbles unthinkingly into your territory. I have already dropped both pieces and they seem to be working fine still, but these weren't dramatic incidents, and one would expect to able to shake these up a a little.

I'll check back in later with my review of test 1. That will be what makes or breaks the product for me. As I noted, It has worked in practice situations (sober band mates with smart phones and track lights wreaking havoc with my unshielded amp).

I have used many wireless guitar rigs and kept having the same problem with them - the tiny cable connector on the transmitter pack would always break. I tried expensive replacement cables, same problem. So when I found the Guitarlink unit I was excited that it has a durable integrated 1/4" cable connector on a really compact and well designed transmitter. My excitement soon faded. At home, I plugged it in and it worked. I wasn't paying attention to the sound. When I tried to gig with it the first time, I found that my guitar signal was about half what I get with a good cable, even with the transmitter turned up to full volume. It had seriously degraded volume and very flat tone. I put it away and used a cable. I tried it a second time before a gig, with a new battery. Same result. The sound signal quality is so bad compared to a good cable that it just isn't useable for live performances. Good idea and design, great price, but not ready for prime time.

Pretty Good So Far

By djdaigle

from Eunice, LA

Ask me a question

Pros

  • price
  • Signal Clarity
  • Travel Distance

Cons

  • Kills batteries
  • Wire is too long

Best Uses

  • Practice
  • Small gigs

Comments about Alesis GuitarLink Wireless System:

I've had this for about 6 months now. I've not quite built up the confidence to gig with it, but I use it to practice at home, just for the freedom it brings. It has a very slight delay, but is hardly noticeable, you get used to it really. Also, I'm not sure about the build quality, I mean I'm sure it would'nt break under minor abuse, but am not willing to find out. Overall, it's a good bang for your buck. I would recommend it to anybody on a budget, looking for a wireless with less than 40 foot range intentions.

Not for live gig

By Jetfamily

from Richmond, BC, Canada

Ask me a question

Pros

  • Good For Practicing Only

Cons

  • Tone Degradation

Best Uses

  • Practicing

Comments about Alesis GuitarLink Wireless System:

First of all, paring instructions is wrong, two taps on both unit will starting paring, for me , the degrading of volume and tone is the deal breaker and the effective range is Only about 20 feet.
If you just want to practice with some freedom and a low price, then buy it. I would pay more for something I can use live.

Every guitar player should have one

By racerevlon

from Los Angeles, CA

Ask me a question

Pros

  • Adjustable Input Level
  • Easy setup
  • Excellent Value

Cons

  • Hard-wired Cord
  • Tone Variation

Best Uses

  • Live performance
  • Mobility
  • Rehearsals

Comments about Alesis GuitarLink Wireless System:

A digital wireless at this price is too good to ignore. While the Alesis Guitarlink Wireless doesn't have some of the advanced features of the competition it likewise doesn't come with the hefty price tag. However, features like the adjustable input level are conspicuously absent from some of the competitive models.

I got this as a backup to my main wireless, replacing an older RF unit. Out of the packaging, up and playing in less than three minutes. That's how simple the Guitarlink is to use. No matching channels, just adjust your input level to taste and get playing. The transmitter comes with a cord long enough to accommodate most guitars, and I only say "most" because I haven't tried it with every model guitar. One of the two issues I have with this system is that it tends to bleed off some of the treble which is not characteristic of digital wireless, which tends to accentuate treble frequencies. There may be some internal compensation but this is not adjustable (as far as I have found). Simple EQ tweaks on your amp and you'll never notice. The other issue is that I wish the transmitter-to-guitar cord was detachable/replaceable but again, consider the price point.

Whether you're a pro looking for a solid backup or an up-and-comer looking to go digital on your wireless, I think Alesis has nailed the entry point to the digital guitar wireless market with the Guitarlink Wireless System.

Definitely Worth It

By Danno

from South Bend, IN

Ask me a question

Pros

  • Everything good

Cons

  • Can't think of any

Best Uses

  • small venues

Comments about Alesis GuitarLink Wireless System:

I bought this system reluctantly after reading some pretty negative reviews. I always test things at home before trying them in the place I'm going to use them. I tried the system at home with a PRS Angelus A/E. It paired immediately and worked fine. Very quiet and no interference. The same results with the Fender Tele. I'm thinking that all the negative reviews I read must have been from people who were extra tough on things. Or didn't give the unit an honest chance. And it's Alesis. I've never had problems with any Alesis product. I did use it in CHurch at a 30'-40' distance.Try it, you'll like it.

This has more hiss and lag than our baby monitor-seriously--Id be better off pluggin my guit into a baby monitor than this piece of trash. I don't know how anyone finds the nerve to make something so completely inadequate to the task for which it was intended. This thing is a bucket with no botttom.
