    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    I use the SLX system plugged straight into the amp. The companding is great, command of sound from the guitar, tone and touch sensitivity, is not lost, and maybe even enhanced a bit. I've used mine for more than 200 gigs and it has performed flawlessly.

    Works w Five String Bass Guitar

    By drodgers99

    from Green Bay, Wisconsin

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    Works excellent with 5 and 4 string electric bass guitar. I was extremely impressed with how fast and easy it setup with no intervention on my part. I hardly touched the owners manual. The frequency response was a major concern since my band tunes one half step down. Both my Fender Jazz 5-string and Carvin Icon 5-string basses sound excellent through the Shure SLX wireless. I highly recommend this unit to 5-string Bass Guitarists.

    This rig is a must-have

    By Duane Propes/Little Texas

    from Nashville

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    I have had a SLX4 for 5 years now and it's been through hell and back. Not once has it gone down on me, outside of the cable, which I abused.It is totally road worthy and will work in any atmosphere from arenas to casinos, where RF is always a nightmare.Can't say enough good things about it. It's a great product.Duane Propes/Little Texas

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    My band is starting to play bigger stages and have been talking about wireless systems for a while now. We were always worried about the sound but I can honestly say the sound got better for me (bass). The other 2 guitarists didnt have any problems either. It's really easy to use and the battery light was a great idea to let you know when the battery is getting low. It felt kind of weird at first b/c we were always fixing the cords or kicking them out of the way and after we went wireless we were sliding our feet as if we were gonna move the cords with our feet but there werent any there. The reason I didnt give this a perfect 5 is b/c nothing is perfect but this is probably as close as you will get. Don't get a cheap unit to try to save money b/c the quality is totally different. Pick your gear like you play. Meaning if you play half-a**ed buy half-a**ed gear. If you play seriously get this system!!

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    let me just start by saying i've always been a little leary of wireless systems, because of cut outs and sound quality loss. I took a chance and got this unit, and it actually made my sound..better, fuller. I will never go back! try it you won't either!

    Mixed review

    By TUBforce1

    from Columbus, IN

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    Upon first use, I LOVED the Shure SLX guitar wireless system. It was very easy to install with the included rack hardware. I didn't notice hardly any change in tone, which tends to be the big issue with a wireless system. My guitarist and bassist also got this system... unfortunately about a month after getting these, 2 of the 3 power supplies failed. After replacement, now noticing some degrade in tone. 1 system still working great. If we can get these 2 replaced, still love them!

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    We used 7 of these with countrymen headsets at the last musical we did at the Arts Magnet Highschool i work at, and despite my fear of them getting broken, and them being occasionally dropped by students, the clarity and quality shined through.

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    I suggested to my bands other guitarist and bassist that we should get these, because you couldnt roam free on stage without tripping on the cables. SO we got these and... No problems anymore! I like it when it tells if the battery is low. It works like a dream. If you play in a band in casinos or something like that you ought to get this!

    I've worked with this product for two years, and they've never given me any trouble, even when all 8 are used at the same time. Fantastic sound, easy to use, battery life is almost forever. Wouldn't use any other mic.

    The Best Wireless Ever

    By Tripp-kGH0c

    from Kirksville, MO

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    Hey, this is it! NO static or noise whatsoever. Believe me, I TRIED to make it mess up and it would NOT. If you need something with different channels from gig to gig, then get this one. This is absolutely the best wireless I have ever owned. Worth every penny just to not have to worry about it on stage. Totally reliable, and it looks great in the rack! Definitely a PRO rig.

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    I was a bit nervous about taking a wireless unit on this year's Vans Warped Tour. Between all of the production walkie talkies, and the countless other bands on other stages using wireless, I figured there was no way it was going to work. Much to my supprise, it worked flawlessly for all 48 shows, even after I fell on the transmitter several times. This wireless unit is the real deal. I made it a point to check out all the other bands' gear, and this is the unit that 90% of them are using. If you're going to go wireless, spend a little more and get this unit. It's well worth it.

    Overall a good unit. Still got full signal with 2 cars, a trailer, and a garage door in between my unit. A slight tone difference. don't know if I can live with that.

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    Like everybody else, I was afraid of losing tone over radio waves, dropouts, etc... The day it came in the mail I hurried to our jam spot and added it to my rig. First thing I did after powering it up was crank my amp and walk down the street. The range is, as they say, right around 300ft, but tonally didn't seem much, if at all different than my monster cable it replaced.The only flaws..ONLY flaws I can find is that the entire portion that is rack mounted is metal while the body pack, the part you run around with and fall on is plastic. I wouldn't have minded so much if it was the other way around. Second, every piece of hardware is provided except the 2 screws that mount the power pack. That's nothing that one drawer in the kitchen full of things you'll never need can't fix. I considered the Line6's X2 XDR95 but went with this and I think I am happier for it.

    a terific wireless for those who are serious

    By josh carlson

    from carson citty, n/v

    Comments about Shure SLX Instrument Wireless System:

    I never realy trusted wireles guitar systems after my first one died on me when I was performing with my band infront of about 800 people, but trust me this wireles is totaly reliable! When i recieved this wireles for my birthday a few months ago i did everything i could think of to try and make it drop out, stop working, or screw up in any way; and it has never failed......well exept for the time i put the bateries in backwards. gee wiz dont i feel smart. Anyway, I feel compleatly safe with this wireles on stage. My only problem with this is that there is a very slight tone change, but not realy enough to be able to tell on stage with a band or through a PA.
