Is the Line 6 G30 still the value choice for wireless?

    I'm looking for a new wireless rig to replace my ancient, cheap analog kit.

    The Line 6 G30 was getting favorable reviews a few years ago, but there hasn't been much recent buzz about them. Is it still a viable way to go?

    Yep. Digital wireless is awesome. Even the cheap ones sound fantastic. If I were to get a new one to replace my 5 year old X2's (hopefully I won't have to), it'd likely be a G30.

    I have the line 6 G50. It works great BUT the battery door on the transmitter IMO is a very bad design. I have to use rubber bands to keep door closed tight enough to make contact with the battery's.

    Yeah, over 4 years of steady gigging on my XDR-95 and it's still working like a champ - no complaints here...

    Can a G30 or G50 give out the lower notes on a bass?

    I am looking foward to buy one but i am worried that it wont be able to produce those deep lower notes, especally with 5 string basses... Help!!
  7. They do full range - low notes sound exactly like when they left the bass.

    I'd choose anytime a XDR-95 over a G30.
    I had issue with the G30 live (lots of headbanging and movement on stage) but never a problem with my XDR
