I bought this unit to be able to roam free on stage and not have too many wires to worry about. This thing is so bulletproof so farm I'm buying another transmitter to hook to my other guitar so I can switch easily form one to another. I can go just about anywhere and it never drops out or sputters (within about 100 feet). The sound is instant and no coloring of the tone at all. Easily the best wireless I've ever had or heard! WELL worth the price.
