Background - I play in a RHCP tribute (www.redhotchilipepperstribute.com) and we somehow survived the last year and are back to touring. I'm very active and move around far too much to use a cable, but also subject 'wearables' like beltpacks to serious abuse. Short question: Is the TA4F connector on Shure and Line 6 wireless units not road-durable and are they subject to drop outs if bumped or jarred or otherwise molested when playing? My OG wireless was a Line 6 G30. This got bequeathed to my guitarist when I fell into a Shure GLXD16. Never really had an issue with the G30 except it ate batteries. The Shure was rechargeable and had a tuner. The Shure was rock-solid, until it wasn't. It would start getting very random dropouts, but mostly when I would be jumping or being overly acrobatic. I changed cables - tried another stock Shure, then a couple of custom ones from Bestronics, then the Shure WA304. Still happened. Changed the battery to a new one. Same story. Purchased a brand new GLXD16 and toured a few dates in Florida with it this March. The first time I jumped, it glitched and dropped out. I returned it immediately. I then purchased a Line 6 G50 wireless - supposedly better quality than the G30, batteries last longer. No tuner and not rechargeable, which is a bummer. Uses the same TA4F connector that the Line 6 does, so had plenty of backup cables. I just got back from a weekend run in Texas. For the past month, the Line 6 worked and sounded great in my bedroom. Even our first show soundcheck was no problem. But in the first actual song, a few dropouts. I was finally able to catch one in the act of being agro and seeing the connection lights turn off and come back. I suffered through 3 of four shows, giving the brand new G50 a chance, toning down my stage antics for a bit, then it would glitch and I would have to switch to a cable. I skipped the wireless on the last show and it was the best show of the run - even though I was tethered. Now I want to return the G50...but have no idea where to go now. I can't use a bug-type of wireless - it has to attach to my strap. Is the simple answer: "Yes, the TA4F connector is temperamental - just gaffe tape it." That would save some coin, for sure, and allow me to go back to my old GLXD16. Sorry for the story. PS: it's been really fun playing shows again.
