One of my friends has a cordless guitar set up that I used on my steel guitar,the sending unit plugged into my volume pedal and the recieving unit into the amp sounded great and didnt have a long cable in the chain, has anyone else tried this?
Also was looking for a reverb and delay unit not sure which brand to go with I have checked out earthquaker devices and Strymon, does anyone use keely caverns?

Seems far more practical for guitar than for an instrument that sets on the floor and that you sit behind on a seat to play. Doubt you'd need one on an electric keyboard for the same reason.

I sometimes use one for a harp mic, however, and it's awesome.

You are probably right, I guess my thought was getting that cord out of the chain might give a better signal but there might not be anything to that theory either.

I like to keep things simple.
A modulator, a transmitter, a receiver, a demodulator, and in all likelihood, an A/D conversion at one end and a D/A conversion at the other, seems unnecessarily complex. And a mess of needless batteries.
Is it a bad idea? Naah.
I would happily call it a silly allocation of resources.

A cord is normally a better transmitter than a wireless. It's a direct connection not subject to interference - and there are both good and horrid wireless units.

I can't see single advantage to "wireless" for a seated player.

well to start off with i would say that it sounds like some just don't like change. and some are very sceptical.(spelling) i bought one of these deals off of american musical supply its got a rechargable battery with a coard to charge both at the same time that last for about 6 to 8 hours. i have used this on the regular 6 string electric guitar and it works fine. i also plugged it into my volume pedal on my steel and it worked fine there as well. and it was only $50 thats not a bad price. the batery should hold enough charge for one night and i see nothing wrong with it and everything sounds good too. try it you might like it

I dont think I would go out of my way for cordless but I had the opportunity to try it and it worked great, so out of curiosity I wandered if it was something some were doing. Very Happy
