NAMM 2016: Line 6 Offers More Freedom with Relay G10
Often times, a so-called wireless system leaves a lot to be desired. Although the term implies no wires, you're often stuck with a beltpack with cables that have to go underneath your clothes and around guitar strap somehow. Finally however, Line 6 has unveiled a reliable Relay-type system at NAMM 2016 that truly is wireless: the Relay G10.
Plug & play
Not only guitarists can take advantage of this plug & (literally) play set. The ultra-compact transmitter can be plugged directly and inaudibly into an electric guitar, but also a bass or even an electro-acoustic ukulele. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to use it either; the transmitter and receiver/docking station automatically determine the best possible frequency.
The G10's wireless connection is transmitted via a universally authorised 2.4 GHz band, just like all Line 6 products. It also means you can use the G10 no matter where you are in the world. This device has a range of about 15 metres, which is about as far as you'd go if you were using a cable. What's more, the characteristic guitar sound a cable usually creates is simulated in the G10 by Cable Tone technology!
No batteries required
Line 6 has built a rechargeable battery into the G10 transmitter, knowing that musicians don't want the hassle worrying about batteries during a performance. The transmitter works for about 8 hours, after which time you can charge it in the receiver, which connects to your amp or mixer via XLR or jack cable. All in all, this is a practical set for guitarists, bassists, and other musicians who want complete freedom of movement.
