    I would like to get rid of my instrument cable.
    I am thinking about going wireless. What are you folks using? pros and cons?

    I am totally out of my league here.

    x2. Works amazingly well, very inexpensive (~$350). Search the forum for other wireless threads and you will see many people talking about this great little wireless unit.

    Thanks for the reply. I heard good things from the other posts about the X2 system.

    I am looking to buy used gear. So the more I know, the better.

    How is Shure, Nady, AKG, Samson, Sennheiser ?

    Are there any designed for the bass guitar?

    I have a used AKG unit that works nicely. The frequency range is plenty wide to accommodate all bass music, and it has been extremely dependable. No RF problems so far.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Are there any units that aren't recommended?

    I am leaning to the X2 or Samson if I can find a good deal used.

    I've been VERY pleased sending the signal from both an active 5-string and a passive Pbass through my "stompbox" X-2.

    What's your budget? I've been thinking about upgrading to the rack-mount version.

    I don't have a set budget. I need to see whats out there first. I am favoring a rackable unit also.

    The X-2 is excellent: I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed with any of the three available versions. My X-2 is the entry-level unit, and it provides extraordinary fidelity with 5-string, despite the fact that I'm using a TS cable - a TRS cable is alleged to provide an even better "Hi-fi" signal.

    I have read all the reviews that I could find online for the X2. Seems that everyone has good things to say about them.
