Line 6 Relay G30 Review

I’ve been researching wireless devices for my guitars for a while now and I’ve been comparing Shure, Nady, Sennheiser, and Line6. From my standpoint, they are all really great devices. I used the follow criteria before making my final choice on which line to buy:

  1. Price
  2. Size & weight
  3. Distance
  4. Expandability
  5. Power source
  6. Sound
  7. Other people’s reviews

I finally picked the Line6 G30 mainly for price since most of the other features are the same across the 100 foot range. I jumped on an opportunity to buy the G30 for $249 at Guitar Center.

Yes, it’s all digital. I’m sorry but most of the music you hear today on the radio is digital and there’s hardly any analog. The other things I really like about the G30 are the size and weight. Both side (transmitter and receiver) are really small. The receiver matches and falls in line with my other pedals. The transmitter is small and light. Did I mention that it uses 2 double A batteries?

On expandability, I had to sit down and think about it a little bit. Will there be a time where I’ll need more than 6 wireless instruments at a time? That’s a guitar, guitar, bass, other, other other…that’s a lot in your band. If you have it, great. If not, I think this device is good in terms of expandability.

I had no problems with distance and interference within the 100 foot range. I still need to test how far it can go.

I forgot to mention ease of use. The other systems had channels and numbers that had to match up. The G30 makes this process simple: Transmitter says channel 1, Receiver says channel 1. That’s it. So simple.

The only problem I have with this device is that the channels are too easy to move on the transmitter. If you accidentally brush up on something, the channel has a tendency to change channels. This is rare but something to keep an eye out for.

If you want a really good wireless system for your instrument, I recommend this device…especially if you can get it for $249. Definitely a good buy if:

  • Stage is less than 100 feet
  • Have a band with less than 7 members
  • Really like Line6 products
  • Don’t want to mess with getting a FCC license
  • Want plug and play equipment

Enjoy!
