If you are a true guitarist, few experiences match the rush of playing guitar live on stage, but you’re always restricted by the length of your cable. If it’s too short, you risk pulling it out of your amp as you strut the stage. If it’s too long, you may trip over it. A guitar wireless system not only increases your mobility, but it also gives your stage a cleaner look and can sometimes eliminate ground loops.
Cheaper wireless guitar systems got a horrible reputation in the past. But with the current technological advances in wireless systems, things have changed drastically for the better. Here is a review of the 9 best instrument wireless systems for better performance, and do not worry, you do not need to break a bank to get one of those.

The Xvive U2 system offers four channel choices at 2.4 GHz, and up to 120 feet(normal) of line-of-sight range outdoors, so you can use four sets of transmitters and receivers with multiple instruments (i.e. four instruments, each into a separate amp; or two guitars into pedalboards and then from the pedalboards to the amps), or you can assign multiple receivers to the same channel and use a single transmitter (i.e. one guitar into more than one amp). And, unless you’re playing on a football field-sized stage, you should be just fine in terms of distance for most venues.
The compact size and flexibility of the U2 transmitter and receiver units make it a very practical system. They can be carried in a gig bag, guitar case, or pocket!
