Product Description

Relay G50 12-channel wireless system redefines the wireless experience for guitarists and bassists. Its superior sound, professional dependability and refreshing simplicity are simply unavailable from other wireless systems.

Superior Sound
Relay G50 provides a pure signal. Its clarity rivals that of the highest-quality guitar cables. Guitars get a beautiful high-end sparkle and basses get a thunderous low-end punch, even at distances of up to 200 feet. Traditional wireless systems compromise their sound by rolling-off crucial high- and low-end frequencies and compressing their signals. Relay G50 offers superior sound with full bandwidth and zero compression.

Professional Dependability
Relay G50 broadcasts over the 2.4GHz band, which keeps its signal free from many kinds of interference. Traditional wireless systems, on the other hand, are susceptible to dropouts, static and many other kinds of interference. For added security, Relay G50 employs exclusive signal protection technology--it simultaneously broadcasts encrypted data streams to multiple antennas. Refreshing Simplicity Relay G50 is a low-profile system that's easy to use. The lightweight transmitter remains out of the way of your performance and its LCD displays channel number and battery life. The rugged metal receiver offers easy-to-read LEDs that display power, status and battery life. Its dual 1/4-inch outputs make it an easy addition to your pedal board.

Receiver features side-mounted 1/4-inch ins and outs and internal antennas, making it easy to add to a pedal board.

Attached to Your Guitar Cable?
For players attached to cables, adopting a wireless system introduces many questions: What will it feel like? Will it change my sound? Relay G50 sounds just like a cable, but it also sounds just like your cable. Relay G50 features EQ settings that match the frequency responses of typical guitar cables.

VWT
Exclusive VWT (Virtual Wire Transmission) technology ensures full-range frequency response, excellent transient response, and wide dynamic range--just like a high-quality guitar cable.

Superior specs
Relay digital wireless systems produce full-range tones with 10Hz-20kHz frequency response, exceedingly low noise with up to 120dB dynamic range, and studio-quality resolution with 24-bit A/D conversion. (Comparably priced analog wireless systems offer 50Hz-15kHz frequency response and >90dB dynamic range. This wreaks havoc on your tone, especially if you use a high-gain amp.)

Cable tone simulation
Using a cable and a wireless system? Now you can switch back and forth without having to adjust the tone settings on your amplifier. Relay digital wireless systems feature a Cable Tone Simulator, which lets you match the sound of your Relay to the sound of your cable.

Compander-Free
Companders squash your signal and ruin your tone. Analog wireless systems require companders but Relay wireless systems do not. Remaining compander-free enables Relay to deliver a beautiful high-end sparkle, thunderous low-end punch, and touch response that analog wireless systems simply cannot deliver.

Diagram on how companders ruin your signal

Remaining compander-free gives better sound than analog wireless systems.

DCL
Exclusive DCL (Digital Channel Lock) technology automatically locks out all sources of interference. The only sound that will come out of your amplifier is you - not static, not Top 40 radio, just you. Guaranteed.

2.4GHz broadcast
The best way to avoid interference? Don't get in its way. Relay digital wireless systems broadcast in the 2.4GHz band, which successfully avoids interference caused by TV stations, public safety broadcasts, cell phone towers, and other high-powered sources.

What about WiFi?
Worried about interference caused by 2.4GHz WiFi networks and Bluetooth® devices? Don't be. Relay digital wireless systems use uniquely addressed and encoded digital transmission technology. Your tone will make it from your transmitter to your receiver free of interference.

Features a switch for changing wireless channels

Don't waste time scanning for open channels.

Full quality, no matter what
Whether you're playing two feet from your Relay or at the edge of its range, you get the same great specs: full frequency response, superior dynamic range, cable-inspired dependability, and 24-bit A/D conversion.

All channels, all the time
All channels in all Relay digital wireless systems work all the time. Too good to be true? Maybe for an analog wireless system. Relay digital wireless systems are different. There's no website to reference, and no need to scan for open channels.

Worked great until just recently. After about 1 year (just when warranty ended, or course) the unit stopped working normally. I started experiencing what other have been talking about on the Line 6 forums. It's like there is a "gate" in the signal chain all of the sudden. Signal will not pass through unless you strum REALLY HARD, and even then if you let the notes ring out, it will just cut off the signal once it reaches a lesser volume level. Also worth noting is that I only used this unit twice a week for a few hours at the most. That means it died within a 200 hour window of use... which isn't a very long service life. Really disappointing because as another reviewer pointed out, there really aren't any other options.

I'm going to call Line 6 on Monday to see what my options are... but I assume I'm SOL based off what I've read from other people who have dealt with their customer support. :(

If you buy this unit and have the option of getting an extended warranty, I'd HIGHLY recommend it! Preferably through a third party that would offer better support than Line 6.

I still have multiple UHF & VHF units, and have used wireless guitar transmitters since the 80's. This is the 1st time I don't lose any tone. The transmitter is solid and the range is fine. I have moved around, and through certain walls, etc, you can lose the signal for spurts if you really try. But for any gig or performance, I trust it. It has completely taken over as my ONLY wireless I will gig with.

********** Follow up, 5 years later. The G50 transmits a very clean signal, great sound and range. However, at some larger events (oversized ballrooms, conventions centers, small arenas) I would occasionally run into drop outs. We considered everything it could be, wifi networks, LED lighting, too many cell phones nearby, etc. It could never be remedied. Tried the simple of changing channels, moving receiver, getting closer, etc. Sound was great, but sometimes 3-4 times per hour, sometimes more, it would drop out for maybe 1/3 of a second, then be back. In a guitar lead, it sounds like you miss notes, during chords, it drops the rhythm. For a 3 piece band, it's a deal breaker. I sent unit to Line6, even got 2 separate transmitters, but the issues could never be fixed. So for me now, this unit sounds great and works well for most things, but I can't afford to have drop outs at all in my situation, so it has been replaced by the new Shure units that sound just as clean, slightly smaller range (Still get all over a 120' stage with no problem) and so far zero dropouts. Technology and frequencies do change over time.

Started looking for a wireless system for my 5 string Bass, and Line 6 wasn't even in the thought process. Was thinking about shure or sennheiser. I always like to research my purchases to death before plunking down my hard earned cash, and finding out it's just not going to work for me. The G50 works, sounds, and sets up great. Like the peddle style instead of the half rack look. A while back I bought a Boss GT 6B everything peddle, but hated my cable coming from the front of the stage, as I would constantly be flinging it out of my way, so I just stopped using it. With the G50's peddle likeness, it fits right down there with my Boss peddle, and I'm not tripping over my cord anymore.

If you decide to get the G50, add these to your shopping list to:
- Levy's Leathers Wireless Receiver Holder For Guitar
- Shure WA304 - TA4F to 1/4" Angle
- eneloop NEW 2000mAh Typical, 1900mAh Minimum, 1500 cycle, 4 Pack AA, Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries with 4 Position Charger.
- (6 Pack) AA / AAA Bright Orange 4 Cell Battery Case with Charge Reminder Markings

That will complete the package.

Well, the first one I purchased I bought from Amazon and I had some issues with it...I returned as the transmitter was defective. The second has worked great. I did a lot of research on wireless' before purchasing this one and for a bass player this IS the wireless to get. NO signal loss and lots of bottom end, even on a 5 string. You will not regret this purchase.

If you're in the market for a new wireless system, do yourself a favor and look no further than the G50. First, right out of the box it was obvious this was different than the rest. The beefy solid feel of the transmitter lets you know this thing is in it for the long run, I have owned ATs, and Shures that would be pulled off the amp head by the cord, NOT a problem with the G50. Second, 12 channels and cable tone emulation in a wireless? WOW. To performance, I turned up my Spider Valve nice and loud and started walking. Out of the studio, down the stairs, out the door, around the house, down the yard, down the street, and lost NOTHING. Probably thanks to dual exterior antennas. Next up was the cable emulation, which any player will tell you a cable just gives you more everything tone, feel, trueness. I did a head to head between my 50' cable and the G50s 50' setting, and have to applaud the guys at Line 6, it was dead on. You'll find yourself looking for cable, only to pleasantly find none. With most wireless systems, you get what you pay for. With the G50 you get every penny's worth and much more. Buy one and see for yourself.
