Audio-Technica ATW-1501 Stompbox Guitar Bass Digital 2.4GHz Wireless System
It's a great system. My son loves it. Wireless is always a leap of faith, but this one impresses. Paired out of the box. Powered off my main power board (I have a 12V DC slot). A second or two to kick in from mute to active. Plenty of iphones, ipads, wi fi devices in the house and no noise or interference so far. Receiver is built to some russian military standard. Nuclear blast proof. Weighty iron cast body. Two OUTs is a god send. My son has a talk box and it fits in neatly. Transmitter is small and light, plastic but not the cheap kind. Feels nice and solid. Battery compartment slides, which is great. One thing that lets the whole system down: the AT-GRcW cable, it's a bit of a joke. The guitar jack is just on the right side of decent, the end that plugs into the transmitter is a total let down. Very delicate, flimsy even. For some strange reason the cable end is female (???!!!). The male end on the transmitter has four (4!!!) microscopically thin pins and some barely noticeable grooves, so plugging it in is like putting a watch together. In the hectic backstage situation it's not gonna fly. You can't turn and lock it, or screw it in either, so you just pray to the Almighty that you haven't snapped a pin or it won't pop out. Once you bend (and surely snap) one of those pins, you're up for $180 (US!!!) to replace the whole unit. I'm all for saving money, but they could've just made the receiver out of thinner iron.
