Re: NGD and Wireless system

That's a beauty, sure enough, Russell, and the price is right as well. I have to admit, however, I know about as much about wireless connectors than I do about drum triggers - Zero.  So have you retired the Hohner or can it be restored. You seem to be our gear guru here, and as soon as I get up a little more energy (low hemoglobin) I'd like to ask your advice about some very simple pedals. I have the original Big Muff and a Chorus pedal (Danelectro IIRC), but what I'm really after is just something simple (no wah, no fuzz etc.), just what the guitar can do and how I can best augment it without looking like I'm doing the "Curly Shuffle" with my feet.

Haven't caught up with you and Retro Buzz lately, but I'll get there. Posting here, learning and making new friends is a big part of my day, and I have missed it. Play us something on that pretty new Epi when you get a chance.

Re: NGD and Wireless system

Great choice on the Masterbuilt, Russell ... I'm a real fan of Epiphone products, and the DR500 is a very nicely priced, all-solid-wood guitar. I've played a few and they sound exceptional.

I'd never seen the Xvive wireless system, and it certainly is compact compared to the usual wireless packs out there. How's the signal transfer? You aren't getting any CB McCall crosstalk I hope? lol I was also wondering if a person could run one Xvive setup from guitar > effects array, and then another from the effects array > amp?

I've also wondered this - I've got a Line6 wireless for my electric and then thought, "this is no good, wires still connect the effects to the amp!!!" ....

Anyway ... smile

Hi Bill good to hear from you hope your hemoglobin issue gets better smile  I have not retired my trusty Hohner I have enjoyed playing for over 20 years and our drummer is going through some tough times with a bad flu so we have not been able to get together for over 2 weeks. regarding something original for guitar if it is an acoustic try Tonewood amps I don't have a link but it's easy to google my Epi and wireless come tomorrow more info and a demo to follow take care buddy smile

TF I am looking forward to caressing those strings on the Epi lol I will let you know when it arrives tomorrow with regards to the signal it is designed to transfer the signal to any location so you would need an extra pair going from a effects array to an amp (4 total) thats around $300 bucks but I don't see why not. smile

Cheers for that, but the receiver is going into either the amp or the effects pedals ... not out of the effects .. guess there's only one way to find out for sure ...

I still think you will need two sets the 1st is a send signal from the guitar into the effects and a receiver to send the signal into the effects then another to send the signal out of the effects to a receiver plugged into an amp.

Re: NGD and Wireless system

At an open mic I used to play monthly,  there were several Taylors and Martins being played but to my ears the best sounding guitar was an Epi DR-500 one of the singer-songwriters played.  Great choice Russell.

I noticed that when I compared it to my Hohner which I thought was full sounding and one thing I like is when I use a capo there is no need to retune and oh yeah one more thing the neck has no lacquer finish it is really fast and comfy

Re: NGD and Wireless system

Hey Russell ...

I got to try out an XVive wireless setup at our local music store this past Saturday, and was amazed at the quality of the signal. I walked about 40' from the amp, and it was just as clear and strong as if I was plugged in with a cable. The guy at the store said the battery in it lasts longer with Passive pickups than with Actives (makes sense) but there would be ample capacity for a jam session or gig with either. big_smile BOSS also makes their version of this technology, but he said (surprisingly) it's not nearly as good. He also pointed out that the XVive is hinged, so on a Les Paul type of jack, it can be tucked closer to the body, which the BOSS won't:

Thanks for telling us about it ... never would have looked, otherwise!

your welcome! I also purchased a Tonewood amp last week it sounds better on my old Hohner electric acoustic then my new Epiphone D-500 which sounds fantastic used as intended with an amp. I found this out by running it thru my Boss ME-50 into my Fender Superchamp wow!
