    I'm looking for a wireless system, mainly to play home and some occasional gigs/jams with friends. Since I don't gig I don't want to spend the $$$ needed for the best ones, I'm more looking for Line 6 G10/G30 and Boss WL-20/50.
    The problem is that I play bass and guitar and used to switch instruments couple of times a night when practicing but I don't want to buy 2 wireless systems. All my guitars have its own strap and all my basses are sharing the same one (with the same strap lock). I play ampless for both (Eleven Rack for guitar and Ampeg SCR-DI for bass) and all going to EV ZLX12P top and EV Zxa sub. So switching from bass to guitar now is just a question of plugging the cable (active basses and some active guitars) and play. Question coming soon...

    With one wireless and 2 setup I will have to use an AB switch after the wireless (or repatch cables all the time), no choice here. Question coming soon...

    Line 6 G10T and Boss WL20T seem very easy when switching instrument because of the transmitter plugging directly on the instrument itself. I'm not very found of having something getting that much out of my instruments (using a right angle cable right now for my Gibson Les Paul, Fender Jazz, and all other non Strats guitars) but I might be overlooking for home use. So it seems the best option but I've seen a lot of problems with active instruments, some reported a bit of signal degradation compared to high end cable, and non-replaceable rechargeable battery (limited lifespan). Question coming soon...

    When playing with friends/gigging I only play either guitar or bass not both, and I only bring one instrument, so having the transmitter on my strap is pretty convenient and safer (not breaking a dongle). Line 6 G30 seems perfect in that scenario, no reported signal degradation, but a lot of reported problems with battery door and belt clip breaking. Will also be the perfect choice for permanent installation on my bass strap. Question coming soon...

    I've seen in some TGP thread that G30 and G10 can now share receiver/transmitter since G30 was updated to run on RF2. So having a G10s system I could buy a G30 transmitter (or G30 system and buy a G10T transmitter) and have the best of both world: G10T for easy switch and G30 (TBP06) transmitter for gigs/jams or permanent solution on my basses strap.

    Now this is the question for owner of both system!!!!
    How can I sync both transmitter to the receiver?
    How to do so with G30 receiver?
    How to do so with G10s receiver?
    Note: I will only have one receiver not both.

    why not get 2 G-30 transmitters and be done with it. They will both talk to one receiver and if one craps out no big deal. Also if you keep the transmitters in a Neotech or other pouch you probably won't break the battery door.

    Because switching a G30 transmitter from one strap to another (transmitter + cable) is more a pain than just a G10T.
    And because I may like the G10S receiver more. XLR out and USB updateable at least.
