    I always thought wireless was the coolest thing since pancakes but playing for the wife/dog/myself it wouldn't make any sense to use the system. Play in my own little corner of the house sitting in my lounge chair plucking strings.

    Most of the guys I jam with seem to be getting cheap wireless from Amazon. Seems to work in our settings. Still not as cool as my red sparkle coily cable, though

    I saw some dude trying a Line6 wireless device in the music store last week. (not sure what Line6 model, but the store employee said it was a new version) Guitar dude walked all around the store and even into some practice rooms in the back of the store. The jazz he was ripping on the Tele sounded good and clear through the Fender Bassbreaker amp he was running through. Even with all the fluorescent lights, I didnt hear any interference at all.

    All that remains are wireless in-ear monitors.
    Think of all the wonderful boxes that you'll have attached to your waist!!!

    Cool!! I'm a fan of wireless systems myself. I don't do it all of the time, but the audience enjoys when I step off the stage and walk among the crowd. The looks I get sometimes are pretty funny...like some sort of alchemy is afoot :D.

    About the only glitch I ran into going wireless was that my Fuzz Face sounded like crap since it's a buffered signal coming out of the receiver, so I ended up switching to a Muff style fuzz with separate bass and treble controls so you can dial it in to sound very close to a silicone FF.

    I'm not true wireless as my in-ears are still wired, but we did it more for safety reasons at our church - but with people walking back and forth across the platform it got rid of the trip hazards.

    The other problem I had once was when my bass player and I plugged in our transmitters within seconds of each other and his bass ended up transmitting to my rig - and we didn't figure it out until we started into the first song - I'd hit the strings and nothing, but then these seemingly random low frequencies kept coming out - which I realized after a couple of seconds was his bass. I ended up yanking out the transmitter and switched to a cable - it was only about 15 or 20 seconds, but it felt like an eternity - you know that recurring dream when suddenly realize you are naked in front of an audience?
    That.
    Now we make sure we time it correctly so that never happens again.

    Wireless units are big time fun. Congrats.

    But the best thing I like about wireless is you can walk around a venue during soundcheck with an open ear and make sure you get a great live mix.

    You know, so the guitar is the loudest? ;)

    I tried in ear once.

    One time.

    And once was enough, I like to feel the SPF with all of my senses.
