    -- Isn't it crazy that "archtop" and "luthier" are spelling errors on this forum?

    Yes, but remember that Carvin charges for shipping, unlike the big online retailers that usually don't.

    This could be a better alternative to some of the other single channel wireless fob-thingies for multiple player ensembles. Bass on one channel, guitar on another, keyboards on another... They don't list the latency, however. I bet that it is probably pretty low though.

    I’ve often thought a wireless would be handy for walking around a room for sound check. But with a magnetic pickup, the impedance of the instrument cable and (to a lesser extent) the input of the preamp affect the pickup’s frequency response. The transmitter would basically be acting as a buffer, decoupling anything that comes after it from the pickup. If you prefer the tone of you guitar with a certain cable, you’d need to have the transmitter plugged in after the cable, which might make the walking around idea a little awkward!

    For an instrument with an active (powered) pickup or preamp this wouldn’t be an issue, as your signal is already buffered.

    I haven’t tried this, I’m just speculating based on some knowledge of circuits.

    It's very easy to walk around and check the sound, by going out into where the audience is, without a cable. I prefer the sound of the wireless without a cable, by far, because it has more dynamics and doesn't cut any frequencies. If I want that done, it's easy enough to do at the amp. I haven't used a cable in a long time, and I hope I never need to again. I don't have this model, so I can't say much about it. I use the Line6 G10, and I like it because it works as a DI with both 1/4" and XLR outputs. If there's a PA, it's easy to just carry the G10 and nothing else. I don't think I want any of the models that just have 1/4" plugs, because I don't see a way to use them without an amp, and certainly not with XLR cables. But if you always use an amp, they should work okay.
