    I know everyone loves the G50s on here but has anyone ever used JTS wireless systems? I came across a pretty good deal for them. All I could find is some crappy YT vids for reviews that barely spoke english. So not much help there. Figured I would ask TB'rs

    it's a standard analog wireless system so it won't/can't have the frequency response of the Line6 digital systems, especially below 100Hz. It might be passable for guitar but I wouldn't recommend it on bass.

    Thanks! So digital is the way to go? I have been looking into the G30 lately. I think thats the way i might go. Range is'nt that big of a deal breaker for me.

    Analog is also good and probably better than most digital systems - IF it is a good system - Shure, AKG, etc. JTS is a so-so Taiwanese mic maker. I wouldn't expect their wireless to match the high end ones.

    Thats what I was worried about but when I was looking into the company it looked like all they make is wireless products. Thats why I wanted to look into it.
  6. what you have said is totally misleading...in respect to UHF wireless systems. i definitely would not be buying the JTS systems. almost any UHF wireless out there will accept frequencies below 100hz. in fact even shures cheap ass PGW series will, i think that is a low as 50hz. most on average are about 38hz. before you spin out details make sure you have the right information. however i would agree that even with a frequency as low as 38, its passable for a 4 string just (it sounded great on my 4-string (yamaha bb1200) when i was using my shure SLX wireless), and its passable for guitar. however if you havea 5 string you will want to have the lower frequency response.

    i have a sennheiser EW100 series wireless with a frequency range of 20hz-20khz. i know that the G55 will go as low as 10hz. however i will take this system over ANY digital wireless system. i have found this to sound AMAZING on my 5 string Spector bass. it really handles it fantastically, i have over 300ft of reception (yes i have tested it), made completely of metal (minus the battery door on the beltpack), just to name a few of the benefits. not to mention i can write my name on the beltpack/reciever...lol

    its not as cheap as the line 6 (i think the sennhieser is retailing around $700), however i would take my sennheiser wireless over the line6 anyday...
  7. I received the G50 as an early Christmas present and gigged with it a day later. I can't tell any difference in sound between the G50 and a cord. None. The only adjustment I had to make was remembering that I wasn't attached to my amp any longer.
