  • Huge price drop! Relay G30 was $299, now $199.

Product Description

Unleash yourself from your amplifier and pedalboard with Line 6's Relay G30 digital wireless guitar system. Unlike analog wireless systems which are notorious for flattening and sucking the energy out of tone, the Relay G30 digital wireless system delivers a full-bandwidth, uncompressed 24-bit digital signal. The G30 preserves the full 118 dB dynamic range of your guitar or bass over a wide 10 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, so nothing gets lost in translation. Plus, the DSP modeling experts at Line 6 have even added a "Cable Tone" switch to simulate the impedance of a 15-foot or 30-foot guitar cable. Factor in this system's small size and nice price, and the Line 6 Replay G30 is a no-brainer for guitarists looking to go wireless.

Preserve Your Tone with 24-Bit Digital Signal

When guitarists go wireless, they typically miss the great tone afforded by an analog instrument cable. Older analog VHF or UHF wireless systems typically sound less dynamic than audio cables, since they use a process called companding, or compression and expansion, to fit into the frequency on which they're transmitting. The Relay G30 wireless system bypasses the tone-sucking, dynamics-squashing companding process by transmitting a full 24-bit wireless signal. Line 6's exclusive DCL (Digital Channel Lock) technology uses digital handshake technology to make the connection from receiver to transmitter.

Cable Tone Simulation from the Guitar-Modeling Experts

When you plug into a guitar amplifier or pedalboard with an analog cable, your tone is affected by the impedance of that cable. So if you've dialed in your amp's tone settings while plugged in, you may notice your wireless system sounding a little too bright or present in comparison. Take the edge off your tone, and add the sound of your cable back into the mix with the Line 6 Relay G30's built-in cable tone simulator. Just flip the Cable Tone switch on the receiver to put Line 6's DSP expertise to work modeling the sound of a 15-foot or 30-foot analog cable.

Roadworthy and Easy to Transport

How easy is it to transport the Line 6 Relay G30? The transmitter fits easily in a pocket, and the receiver is about the same size as a guitar pedal. In fact, you can mount the receiver inconspicuously in your pedalboard. The Line 6 Relay G30 is made out hard polycarbonate material making it more than roadworthy. Pop two AA batteries into the transmitter for up to 8 hours of battery life.

Superior Sound

Relay G30 provides a pure signal. Its clarity rivals that of the highest-quality guitar cables. Guitars get a beautiful high-end sparkle and basses get a thunderous low-end punch, even at distances of up to 30 meters. Traditional wireless systems compromise their sound by rolling-off crucial high- and low-end frequencies and compressing their signals. Relay G30 offers superior sound with full bandwidth and zero compression.

- 30-meter range, line-of-sight
- Broad 10Hz-20kHz frequency response
- Superior 118 dB dynamic range

Professional Dependability

Relay G30 broadcasts its robust signal over the 2.4GHz band. This keeps the signal free from many kinds of interference. For added security, Relay G30 employs exclusive signal protection technology: it broadcasts an encrypted data stream on six channels simultaneously.

Traditional wireless systems, on the other hand, are susceptible to dropouts, static and many other kinds of interference. Broadcasting over congested UHF bands, their signals may be affected by interference generated as far away as 160 kilometers, or more.

- The 2.4GHz band is optimal for guitar wireless
- Encrypted data stream for added signal protection
- Simultaneous broadcasts on six channels

Refreshing Simplicity

Relay G30 is a low-profile system that's easy to use. The lightweight transmitter remains out of the way of your performance, and the rugged receiver can sit on top of your amp or be added to your pedal board. The receiver offers bright and easy-to-read LEDs that display power, status and battery life. And the standard 1/4-inch ins and outs deliver real convenience.

The system comes complete with transmitter, receiver and all necessary accessories including cable, power supply and batteries.

- Lightweight, low-profile and easy to use
- LEDs display power, status and battery life
- 8 hours of battery life

Attached to Your Guitar Cable

For players attached to cables, adopting a wireless system introduces many questions: What will it feel like? Will it change my sound? Relay G30 sounds just like a cable, but it also sounds just like your cable. Relay G30 features two EQ settings that match the frequency responses of typical guitar cables. Different players use different cables, but all players can use Relay G30.

zZounds Expert Review
I do most of my guitar/bass playing in the Chicagoland area, and have had mixed results with analog wireless gear. Wireless freedom is nice, but not at the expense of static, radio interference, and tone-suck. So, I was eager to see how Line 6's Relay system stacked up in this wireless-saturated area.

I really liked the compact design of the G30 system. The RXS06 receiver was roughly the same size as (slightly larger than) a standard stompbox pedal, and fit right into my pedalboard. The system includes a 9V wall wart power supply, but I was able to daisy chain it into my pedalboard power with no trouble. The plastic chassis and controls seemed a little frail; I feel like I'd have to baby it a bit out on the road. The TBP06 Transmitter was also compact and lightweight, though I wasn't super happy with the clip. I use a thin 2-inch nylon strap, and the transmitter wouldn't stay put. It clipped onto my belt just fine, but I prefer to mount on the strap because it allows greater freedom of movement. It's a minor quibble though, as I'm sure I could make it work on the strap with a little ingenuity (and gaffer's tape).

Just as Line 6 promises, the setup couldn't be easier. The control layout is very basic (in a good way) and intuitive, with six-position channel selectors on both the transmitter and receiver. Connect the transmitter to your guitar or bass, the receiver to your amp (direct or via pedalboard), choose the same channel on both pieces, and you're all set.

I first tried it out at my rehearsal space. This was a good test because the room is big enough to roam around a bit and also because we've got an old 2.4 GHz wireless router in there for Internet access. Since the G30 runs on 2.4 GHz as well, I was curious to see if the router would interfere. No problems there, though. Line 6 uses unique addressing and encoding, and the G30 didn't even hiccup when I put the receiver right up by the router. I used it for a few hours, and the only problem I had was when I stepped out of the room to see how far away I could get. Line 6's literature says the operating range is 100 feet with a "line of sight" between the transmitter and receiver, and performance was spotty when the components couldn't "see" each other. Unlike analog wireless that tends to fade as you reach the limits of its range, this digital system is either on or off. One second, I had sound coming out of my amp, the next second, silence. The good news is, it comes back online just as fast.

I was comfortable enough with the reliability at the rehearsal space to use the G30 out at a downtown venue, and got the same rock-solid performance. No dropouts, and no static. It wasn't all smooth sailing, though. The connection from the guitar to the transmitter is 1/4-inch on both ends and the cable popped out of the transmitter a few times. I had wrapped the cable around my strap to keep it from popping out of the guitar, but with the transmitter clipped to my waist and some mild stage antics, the opposite end easily pulled free. I would have preferred some sort of locking connection at the transmitter end; a threaded collar over the 1/4-inch plug, or a mini-XLR perhaps. I put a little more slack in the cable and cut back on the tomfoolery, and made it through the rest of the show without a problem.

Is "Too Good" Good?
Reliability is super important to me, but I'm not going to rock an always-on wireless if it sucks all the tone out of my instrument. Analog systems typically use some sort of companding technology; compressing the signal at the transmitter, then expanding it back at the receiver. This tends to squash the dynamics and suck the energy out of your tone. Since the G30 is digital, it's only transmitting 1's and 0's, so there's no need for companding. The digital conversion is 24-bit, with 128x oversampling, so you're passing full range signal from one side of the system to the other. It's like using a cable. Well, almost.

Since you don't have cable run between the guitar and amplifier, you don't get the resulting impedance that comes with that cable run. The tone through the G30 was very full and dynamic; maybe a little too full and dynamic. I found myself dialing back the treble more than normal on a single-coil Strat to mellow it out. The receiver has a "Cable Tone" switch that simulates the characteristics of the missing cable (it just wouldn't be Line 6 without some modeling in the mix). You can turn it off, or select a virtual 15-foot or 30-foot cable. Using this switch did help control the bite somewhat, but the tone still seemed a little too present, if that makes sense. I felt like I had to "re-learn" how to EQ my rig to compensate for the G30, but it's a small price to pay for the freedom of movement.

As with any wireless rig, there's going to be a little bit of latency as the signal is converted to digital, sent to the receiver, then unpacked to your amp, but we're talking milliseconds. I noticed it when I first started noodling, but it wasn't enough of a delay to really be distracting. A few minutes into the demo, and I forgot about it altogether.

Still Up In The Air?
Bottom line, the G30 system is a very nice wireless system at a great price. I would have no qualms about adding this to my rig, with the exception of the guitar-to-transmitter connection issue I mentioned. If I could secure the transmitter to my strap, I'm almost positive it would become a non-issue, though I'd still feel more comfortable with a locking connection of some sort. That said, if I planned to use wireless regularly, I'd probably step up to the G50 system, which offers a metal chassis on the receiver, twelve channels instead of six, double the operating range (200 feet), and locking mini-XLR transmitter connection. It's more expensive, though, and the G30 is very capable for the budget minded.

4.5 out of 5 (33 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing!"
Sound: Wonderfull sound! i was expecting that it would take away the sound from my amp, but it didn't! I was playing in the other room, upstairs, and even outside and my tone wasn't affected (until i went over the range) i was very suprised that the tone sounded just like using wires! Feature: Cable tone switches, battery life, channel selector, power source, etc. Everything that you would need for a wireless system Ease of Use: Plug it in and play! It's as easy as that! Quality: My only worry about the G30 is that the reciever is made out of plastic. Even though it seems that it would hold up, i am still worried. If you take care of your gear though, you won't have a problem with the G30 Value: Great product for the money! if someone stole this i would definately buy another one in a heartbeat Manufacturer Support: N/A I've never had to deal with Line 6, but my guess is that they would be right there for you The Wow Factor: Who doesn't want a wireless!?! You get the wireless freedom that you've been wanting without sacrificing the tone of your amp Overall: I was very pleased with the G30 and i will be keeping this product for many years to come...I will recommened that you get rechargable batteries though. Even though they last for 8 hours, you will be going through lots of money buying batteries

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "G30 Wireless Review"
Overall: I am satisfied with the G30. I have no loss of tone, plenty of bandwidth to roam and a simple piece of equipment to add to my collection. I recommend purchasing the product, especially since the price is right for what you'll receive. Note: The unit is made of a durable plastic. Thus far, I have not had any issues with it breaking. Also, such is the case with other digital units, it goes through batteries quickly, bring extra AA's if you are planning to use it during long gigs.
