What can I achieve with this wireless system?
This wireless guitar system removes the restrictions placed on you by a physical wire going from your guitar to your amp. It uses the 2.4GHz frequency band and provides you with the mobility to move up to 20m away from your amp. This wireless system is compatible with most guitars and bass guitars and is quick and easy to setup. Simply connect the transmitter to your guitar, connect the receiver via a 1/4-inch jack cable (not supplied) to your amp, press the pairing buttons and you’re good to go.

How is this wireless system powered?
The GuitarLink wireless transmitter is powered by two AAA batteries and is small and compact, so it won’t interfere with your playing. An integrated metal clip allows you to attach the transmitter on your guitar strap or belt, providing you with extra comfort. The GuitarLink wireless receiver can be powered by two AAA batteries, or through the mains, using the supplied power adapter, for a more permanent setup. Being compact and capable of running off batteries, you can place the receiver almost anywhere – on top of the amp, mounted on your pedalboard or in your effects rack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wireless Guitar System I am not new to guitar or wireless systems, so when this came on promotion for less than £40 I thought it worth a punt. This is small, light and minimalist, but ideal if you just want to have a wireless link between your guitar and amp. If this is you expectations this is fine, however the sound is heavily compromised, and a budget audio cable under most conditions would do a better job at carrying sound. The sound occasionally clips, it lacks treble and it is heavily compressed. Range is about 10-15 metres which is fine. All of this I probably can live with, accepting it is what it is, however the most annoying characteristic is the latency. There is a noticeable delay between picking a note and it ringing through the amp, more noticeable when you are playing lead quickly. I guess this is caused by the transmitter converting audio into digital to be transferred over the data link and then being decoded. My vhf system probably does a better job, but that cost 10 times the price 20 years ago. I wouldn't use performing live, but handy at home. I guess it is still worth the full non-promotional price if you are prepared to accept the compromises. Will try using it with house wifi and digital phones switched off to see if that effects latency...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wireless guitar system Nasty piece of kit, cheaply made, ok as long you don't want to use it as a serious piece of kit, add a bit more cash and get something decent.

Why has the transmitter got a 20 foot cable for heaven's sake?!
