Line 6 Relay G50 Digital Wireless Guitar System

Pop this Line 6 wireless receiver into your pedalboard, clip the transmitter to your strap, and get ready to rock -- without tripping on your guitar cable.

With a Line 6 Relay G50 digital wireless guitar system, you can break free from your amp and pedalboard! This wireless system features 12 user-selectable channels, a wide 10 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, 2.4 GHz band broadcast for interference-free performance, compander-free operation so your tone won't sound squashed, and much more. To get started, just add the system's stompbox-style receiver to your pedalboard, clip the transmitter to your guitar strap, and choose a channel.

Power Up and Play without Ever Tripping on a Cable

The Relay G50 digital wireless guitar system works right out of the box, allowing you to enjoy playing guitar wirelessly without having to scan for open channels or reference Web sites for rules and restrictions. The Relay G50 wireless rig features 24-bit A/D conversion with a wide 10 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and dynamic range of up to 118 dB -- so you'll preserve the full, natural tone of your guitar or bass without adding noise.

Compander-Free Operation

Older analog VHF of UHF wireless systems use companding (compression and expansion) to send and receive audio -- which can squash your dynamics and suck the life out of your tone. Unlike those analog systems, the Relay G50 sends a full-bandwidth, 24-bit digital signal, so you get the sound you're used to from a wired system. Line 6's exclusive Virtual Wire Transmission (VWT) technology provides excellent transient response, full-range frequency response, and wide dynamic range. read more

Cable Tone Simulation Onboard

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 G50'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. Now, you can switch back and forth between wired and wireless without having to adjust the tone settings on your amplifier.

Sayonara, Interference

Digital Channel Lock (DCL) technology automatically locks out all sources of interference so that when you perform, you hear just your guitar, not static. Likewise, the system operates in the 2.4 GHz broadcast band, which avoids interference caused by TV stations, public safety broadcasts, cell phone towers, and other high-powered sources.

Line 6 Relay G50 Wireless Guitar System

Line 6 Relay digital wireless guitar systems are hassle-free and work right out of the box. Power up, pick a channel, and go! Put analog wireless to shame. All channels in all Relay digital wireless systems work all the time -- there's no website to reference and no need to scan for open channels.

Perfectly placed ins and outs, metal stompbox-style reciever, internally mounted antennas; the Relay G50 digital wireless system is the perfect addition to any pedal board.


- 200-foot range; 12 user-selectable channels
- Broad 10Hz-20kHz frequency response
- Superior 118 dB dynamic range with Zero compression
- Broadcasts in the 2.4 GHz band: optimal for guitar wireless
- Find open channels right out of the box--no scanning, no searching, no hassle
- EQ settings match the sound of a guitar cable so you can keep your sound
- Encrypted data stream provides additional signal protection


Exclusive VWT (Virtual Wire Transmission) technology ensures full-range frequency response, excellent transient response, and wide dynamic range -- just like a high-quality guitar cable.

Superior Specs

Relay digital wireless systems produce full-range tones with 10Hz-20kHz frequency response, exceedingly low noise with up to 120dB dynamic range, and studio-quality resolution with 24-bit A/D conversion. Comparably priced analog wireless systems offer 50Hz-15kHz frequency response and >90dB dynamic range. This wreaks havoc on your tone, especially if you use a high-gain amp.

Cable Tone Simulation

Using a cable and a wireless system? Now you can switch back and forth without having to adjust the tone settings on your amplifier. Relay digital wireless systems feature a Cable Tone Simulator, which lets you match the sound of your Relay to the sound of your cable.


Companders squash your signal and ruin your tone. Analog wireless systems require companders but Relay wireless systems do not. Remaining compander-free enables Relay to deliver a beautiful high-end sparkle, thunderous low-end punch, and touch response that analog wireless systems simply cannot deliver.

Digital Channel Lock

Exclusive DCL (Digital Channel Lock) technology automatically locks out all sources of interference. The only sound that will come out of your amplifier is you -- not static, not Top 40 radio, just you. Guaranteed.

2.4 GHz broadcast: What about Wi-Fi?

Worried about interference caused by 2.4 GHz WiFi networks and Bluetooth devices? Don't be. Relay digital wireless systems use uniquely addressed and encoded digital transmission technology. Your tone will make it from your transmitter to your receiver free of interference.

The best way to avoid interference? Don't get in its way. Relay digital wireless systems broadcast in the 2.4 GHz band, which successfully avoids interference caused by TV stations, public safety broadcasts, cell phone towers, and other high-powered sources.

Full Quality, No Matter What

Whether you're playing two feet from your Relay or at the edge of its range, you get the same great specs: full frequency response, superior dynamic range, cable-inspired dependability, and 24-bit A/D conversion.

Well-built, clean and exceptionally close to cable sound Just kidding, although the 200' range is a conservative estimate: I live on a farm and got at least 300' away before I dropped signal, and there were two insulated walls between me and the receiver. Unless you're playing solo, you can't get past 80-100' anyway, without playing out of time due to the delay in the sound reaching you; that extra power just makes for a great signal when you're closer.

Very good, very close. The cable length selector rolls off the highs as you extend the 'length'

Receiver fits a stomp box footprint. The Mute button is essential if you change guitars onstage. Another really great feature is that the receiver gets battery life updates from the transmitter, so you can read the battery life without twisting yourself into a pretzel, or removing the belt pack. A great feature for One minor 'gotcha' to watch for: if you're groping around back to clip this to your belt, it's quite easy to snag the battery cover release and de-power the unit, not to mention dropping batteries onto the stage The cover is unfortunately placed right where it's most convenient to grab it for this purpose. Mine has a little piece of painter's tape over it now. I don't find the cable selector at all useful; it offers nothing that can't be easily dialed up from the amp, and it smacks of tech for tech's sake. I truly love these guys and read more their insane obsession with modelling everything on the planet, but what's next, a guitar pick thickness and density simulator?

Ease of Use
If you don't know how to install batteries and connect audio cords, you could be in for a rough time. Get that bit down and it starts right out of the box. Defaults to Channel 1. The only thing I learned from the manual is that you can use both input buttons simultaneously to lock the unit on and in its current config. Very handy on stage; you can't accidentally power it down or change channels by hitting a button

Metal construction, made for the stage. Can't comment on reliability, as I have not had it long.

It's not cheap, that's for sure, and if you are only playing smaller venues with not too many other wireless channels, check out the G30, at $100 less. It's a high quality product, and that has value for professional and amateur alike.

Manufacturer Support
Previous good support from L6 on other products.

The Wow Factor
How many other products will let you rock out while riding a horse? On a more serious note, it's great for both live and home studio work; it's very handy to be able to put an amp in a closet to keep the volume manageable for other players or neighbors, and play without a cable. I've even stuck a mic'ed amp into a car in a friend's garage so he could get that maxed out sound without fear of eviction.
