    I use the X2 system, which is the predecessor to the Line 6 G30, G50 and G90. Mine is the rack-mount version, but they're all in the same family. I play a four, but if you look up the X2, you'll find 5-stringers saying that it carries the B string well. I think that's because it's digital. The new Line 6 G series uses a different carrier frequency - 2.4 GHz as opposed to the X2 at 906 MHz. Apparently the 900 MHz range is off-limits in Europe. Since it's also digital, I would assume good frequency response for the low B using the new Line 6.

    Use it, love it.
    Also avoid the 700 MHz band if coming to the USA. That band(Sennheiser calls C-band) has been sold and will be "illegal" in June 2010.
     
  5. I use an X2. The stock cable is crap and must be upgraded because it will fail within a few gigs. Since doing that replacement, I'm loving the freedom of the X2.
     
  6. Hi i use the Ashdown Freebass and find it very good, no more standing on leads, and you can sneak off stage for a listen, I also use it with a 5 string it has like a 16 pre set (they call it 16 DSP enhanced bass settings), and it does what it says, i find setting 2 works best for the 5 string it gives a bit more bottom, the battery life is about 8 to 10 gigs, I havent noticed any loss of signal and i have wandered off about 30 feet from the unit, but try before you buy because what i like you might not, but you can't beat the freedom, so best of luck.
