    Wireless systems?

    What are folks here using for wireless on your balls? I see older threads out there, but I'm wondering if there are any updated recommendations. I'd be looking to run it with my Majesties, JP15 and Luke III.

    Thanks

    Until recently I used a Shure GLXD Digital Guitar System - footpedal tuner. It was excellent, rock solid. The only reason I decided to sell it is that it is picky with power supplies. Even though my Pedal Power 4x4 was rated at or above its needs, and Shure gave me guidance on how to hook it up, there was a hum in my system. The hum went away when I used the Shure power supply, but I didn't want to use it (no room on board to mount it)

    No Boss with the Luke III (nor JP, nor Majesty, I guess). Preamp is Boss kryptonyte. Unusable.

    I'm hoping I can keep the budget relatively low. I'd like to keep it under $200. Anyone here tried out the XViv systems with Majesties, JPs or Lukes?

    My Xvive doesn't like it when plugged directly into my Cutlass.However don't despair a work around is a short lead 6" with a 1/4 " male at one end and a 1/4"female socket on the other.I use a longer lead on my Cutlass between them and velcro it on to my guitar strap.The Xvive needs to be far enough away from the electronics to get rid of the buzz.The longer version works on the Cutlass and on my Electro acoustic the shorter lead works too.It won't cost a lot to try it.I bought a 50cm lead 1/4 " male to 1/4 " female from Amazon UK I think it cost about 5 so I would imagine it will be about $5 in the USA.

    Line 6 G50 has been very solid with the JP XI and Majesty 2018, and all the other guitars. The additional transmitters a bit pricey.

    I picked up an XVive U2 today. Charged it and hooked it up between my Majesty and Axe FX III. I didn't notice any additional audible noise, even with this Majesty boost engaged. I've only tried the Majesty so far and only had about 15 minutes to play until everyday life intervened. Hoping to try more tomorrow with different guitars including my Luke III and Cutlass. I also need to compare the tone with the XVive vs a cable.

    More than you said you want to spend, but it sounds great, the range is exceptional, and holds a charge forever.

    I've gotten so far away from the amp that the speed of sound is a factor and makes playing impossible, and it still works. Not that I get the chance to wade out into the arena that often.

    I jinxed it. So, within 2 days after writing this one of the transmitters just flat out stops working! It will not power up! We'll see how well Line6 stands behind their products since it is still under warranty.
