Line 6 has always been known for their modelers such as the POD. However, they bought out a company that has been making some of the best wireless devices in years called Xwire. Way back in the day, Xwire was one of the most famous wireless product companies because their stuff sounded closest to a cable. They went bust for a bit, but then they were revived for a few years and started making a new revision. Line 6 then bought this company, and that’s the current product you see today.

The Line 6 G50 is the “midgrade” wireless that they offer. They have the G30, the G50 and the G90. The G30 and the G50 are the closest, and they’re meant to mount to pedalboards thanks to their smaller footprint. The G90, however, is a rackmount device. For the best bang for your buck, I honestly feel that the G50 is the one to get. The G30 is a bit more slimmed down, where as the G50 is closer to the rack unit. In fact, the main difference between the G50 and G90, besides the fact that the G90 is a rackmount unit, is that the G50 has a range of 200 feet instead of 300 feet. Aside from that, it has the same bodypack, the same dB, the same frequency range, etc. Granted, the G90 has a few extra little things in there for rack guys, but they’re not needed for 90% of the people out there.

If you’re looking for a wireless that’s as close to a cable as you can get, I highly recommend the G50. It’s economically feasible, it can mount basically anywhere, it uses AA batteries in the receiver instead of 9V batteries, and it can even be powered by a regular daisy chain connection or something like the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Plus.
