    i wont to buy a wireless system but with realy good sound and atlist 15 foot range i can give about 250$can you tell me where and what can buy?
     
  2. Why not just buy a 15 foot cable for $20 or so? Theyre just about fail proof. They dont need batteries. But, thats only my opinion.

    Do a search on this. We've been through it a dozen times (this month).

    I too was at your position once Newstead, wireless seemed like heaven to me... until I tried them all out.

    Truth is, I can't stand wireless now, and I love my 20 foot cord. Thing is about wireless, if you want it to sound good, you gotta spend around 700 dollars for a wireless. I've tried out every wireless system in the 300 dollar range and they still give you that horrible fuzzy crackle sound. After getting really pissed off about this, I just accepted the face that good wireless isn't cheap and I can do without wireless until I have an extra 700 dollars around.

    So to answer your question, there isn't a good wireless system for 300 dollars, spend 700 on one, but try it out before you do so, if you aren't satisfied then just screw wireless.

    One word in favour of wireless regardless of cost

    Electrocution.

    Although it hasn't happened to me it happened to one of my oldest playing buddies. He survived but only through pure luck. I bought my first wireless system 2 days later....

    I use a Shure UHF wireless system. I have no complaints about it. It cost me a bit more than you are looking to spend, though.
