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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

        Comments about Alesis GuitarLink Wireless System:

        I had been looking for the longest time for an inexpensive wireless transmitter for my guitar, I had researched the brands and decided I'd have to spend a bit of a fortune for anything of decent quality.

        But then- Musician's Friend ran a "Stupid Deal" and I was sure that if it didn't work out- they'd take care of me on a return. The price was incredibly low, and I wanted to experiment and see how it all worked for home use and practice with friends.

        The package came, and I opened it up, it's super easy to set up, pairing is a cinch, it takes about a minute to pair the hardware.

        Fine tuning is intuitive, you crank it up and then dial back the volume on both the receiver, and then on the guitar, until the unwanted distortion, noise, and interference goes silent.

        Low and behold- it works. No hum, no static, no distortion. It works perfectly. I was shocked on how well the hardware works. I recommend it highly. If you can find a better product for the price, ...I still won't believe you...

        This is a raging bargain, and it's a joy to use.

        Comments about Alesis GuitarLink Wireless System:

        It works as advertised - it was easy to set up and has connected quickly every time. I didn't have the signal robbing problem others have reported - it was loud and clear. It adds a little latency, hiss, and compression but at this price it's not enough to bother me and is unnoticeable when playing with a band. The wireless benefit far outweighs any perceived negative aspects. I play lead guitar and my drummer watched my picking hand while running through repertoire and said he couldn't detect any delay. When practicing or playing alone I'd use a cable anyway to save batteries, reduce noise, and improve dynamic control, but for playing live with a band, it's wonderfully liberating to be unteathered for a change!

        To get desired tone, you need a hot signal to the board or amp. Having my Fishman blender volume
        at full and the receiver volume at full does not
        provide the same tonal quality as a direct line
        to the powered monitor that I tested it with.
        Direct line, the guitar on-board preamp gives
        great tone at 3/4 volume!
