I bought the G70 (before reading the reviews....) new from Andertons in the UK last week. Was really excited by the connectivity and routing as I switch between electric (wireless) and steel guitar (with cable) during gigs. Anyway, it all worked fine at home. Got to a gig last Saturday and tried to connect - transmitter not recognised. So I did the scan and switched channels and got it working for the sound check. Set the transmitter to sleep mode - really cool feature! Anyway, we got up to play and lo and behold, transmitter not recognised! Tried a scan and then changed channel a couple of times, still no luck. Turned off and on again, still not recognised. Ran off stage and got a cable - job done, but very embarrassing!
To their credit, Andertons have sent me a new unit via courier today, and picked the old one up, so I will try again in a couple of days at the next gig. My parting thoughts:
1.) I have gigged for years with UHF wireless systems (AKG and Sennheiser) and have NEVER had a dropout or issue with connectivity. Only problem was once when the cable came out of the guitar whilst I was sat on someone's shoulders, wandering through the audience - always a risk you take... ;-)
2.) My mobile phone registered that there was a strong, open, wi-fi signal at the gig where the G70 failed. Guessing this had something to do with the problem.
3.) Our double bass player has 2x G30 wireless units and initially I wondered if they were causing interference, but it was fine during sound check so I guess no problems there.
4.) If the new unit still plays up I shall probably go for Shure GLXD16 - or just stick to my Sennheiser system and have the separate tuner and ABY switcher pedals. Does anyone know if there is a comparable product on the market to rival the G70 for features?
5.) I love Line 6 stuff - really want to remain a believer!
