Hello!

I've recently been looking into the possibility of acquiring a pre loved Line 6 Wireless system, from their G-series range.

In the last few minutes, I've been on to Anderton's website (to check the RRP) and noticed the following disclaimer on the G-30; "please note: Line 6 Relay transmitters are NOT compatible with active pickups."

Which is a blow. But begs the question: what are those who have gone wireless using? and/or - is there a work around we should know about?

Cheers

I had a G30 and active basses and didn't have any issues except that it used to interfere with the radio mikes regardless of what channel I was on

Thanks for letting me know! I see these Line 6 Relay systems on quite a few set up's and was curious............... 🤓

The issue is that the bug uses a trs jack to check if it's in a guitar or charging cradle and some active preamps (not pickups) send a whine down the ring connection. This can be alleviated by using an extension lead.

i think this might only be for the G10? the other models have removable batteries rather than a built in rechargeable one and are a separate belt pack with a cable.

I had a G30 for quite a while and never had an issue (albeit with passive basses as that's all i have) now got a G50 and no issues at all (mind you i've not used it much since lockdown!)

Indeed. When I read the op I was sure it said G10. Seeing what I expected to see probably.

 

I've successfully used the G30, G50 and G55 with active basses.

I too have used a G30 for many years, with passive and active. Never had any issues.

I’ve got G70 and G75 and have no problems with EMGs.

Stingray can be noisy with small bug type transmitters. Extension cable and moving the bug to the strap cured it.

      Me and my band are straying into the realm of using IEMs to eliminate the need for onstage cabs and sound. I today just bought a pair of Sennheiser SE535s and the SubZero SZ-IM2 transmitter & receiver and, I don’t know, I’m disappointed. Admittedly I’ve never tried IEMs before so I didn’t know what to expect, but for hundreds of pounds worth of gear, I expected better sound quality. I get better clarity from my Apple earphones frankly, please someone tell me I’m doing something wrong?

      Having recently been interested in entering the murky world of in-ear monitoring I consulted IEM guru @EBS_freak of this parish and, on his recommendation, purchased this fantastic IEM system. Budget price, but excellent performance in a great package.
      I've only used it approx 5 times (!) and I'm only selling it on as I've been fully converted to the IEM cause and since been offered an expensive high-end Sennheiser G4 system at a bargain price.
      All present and complete in its carry case with:
      Transmitter & Aerial
      Receiver
      Earphones
      Rackmount kit
      Power supply
      Instruction manual
      This operates on the license-free UK channel and was £225 new but I'm asking just £150 posted (UK)! Get yourself a set of the fabulous 'KZ' 5-driver earphones for under £40 and you're laughing! A great way to enter the world of IEMs for under £200, rather than laying out £1k+
      Payment by Paypal (you pay fees), direct bank transfer or cash on collection from Woking/Guildford area.
      Please see my extensive positive feedback thread for assurance of a clean, honest transaction.


       
      Lots of positive chat abut this system on this very site too:
