The Benifits of a Wireless Guitar System

Untangle your life and experience the freedom of a wireless guitar system.    Wireless guitar systems are such as the Audio Technica ATW-701/G is a super convenient way for the performing guitarists out there to explore the stage and share and experience with their audience.    By untethering yourself from your pedals and amps you will be free to really get into a performance, Inexpensive VHF systems such as the  Audio Technica ATW251g are perfect for the weekend rockstars and the garage band heroes.

Wireless guitar systems consist of two basic components.   The transmitter with is attached directly to your guitar via the supplied cable.   The transmitter is encased in a bodypack style enclosure about the size of a deck of playing cards.   They are easily clipped onto your belt or guitar strap and transmit wirelessly to the receiver

The receiver is typically a small box that can be mounted on an amp or by your pedalboard.   Depending on the design, the wireless receivers can be field selectable meaning they can operate on many different frequencies.

Wireless guitar systems give an added level of safety to your performance by eliminating the need for  the snaring cables under your feet you can be confident you won’t be accidentally stage diving as a result of tripping over a guitar cable.

Set up and tear down are also a breeze as a result of wireless systems especially if you’re are performing at a festival or venue where you either follow or open for another act as that’s atleast one less cable you will have to track down, untangle and wrap.

You are also free to keep the sounds coming as you eliminate the possibility of stepping on a cable, pulling it out of your guitar, and blowing fire out of your amp as the result of a hot line flopping about the stage while you play air guitar for a few seconds.


GoGo Tuners TT1

The GoGo Tuners TT1 is a the handiest of the handy when it comes to guitar tuners.    The  TT1 clips right to the headstock of any guitar so its a hands free way to make sure you’re always in tune.

The TT1 checks your tuning in two unique ways.   The first is using a highly sensitive internal microphone designed to be used with acoustic and hollowbody instruments.   The second is the piezo pickup found in the clip of the tuner.   The extremely sensitive clip “feels” the vibrations of the strings though the guitar rather than picking them up through the mic.    This is a wonderful advantage when trying to tune during a noisy rehearsal session because unlike other tuners the TT1 doesn’t require a quiet environment to work.   The pickup can simply feel if your guitar is in tune or not.

Another awesome feature of the TT1 is the color indication.    The entire backlit screen of the tuner will light up green for in tune,  and red for out of tune.     This is great if you often play in dimly lit rooms unlike other tuners with simple lCD displays.  The body of the TT1 is a smokin’ blaze orange as well so if you happen to set your tuner down on your amp or by your pedal board while playing in that dimly light room your eye is easily drown right back to it.   This thing is hard to lose!

The GoGo Tuners TT1 features three 360 degree points of swivel so no matter where you place the tuner on youre instrument its easy to adjust for a clear line of sight to the screen.

There are several operation modes to choose from including chromatic mode, guitar, bass, violin, and viola.    So no matter what your instrument this is the tuner for you.
