Line 6 Relay G30 Digital Wireless Guitar System
The Relay G30 is ideal for the musician who gigs on a local level. The unit is housed in a hard-wearing plastic case, with 6 available channels and up to 100 ft range meaning the G30 has everything you need to free yourself from wires and get crystal clear transmission through the airwaves. Need a more robust system for touring and regular gigging? Take a look at the Line 6 Relay G50.
Superior Sound -Relay G30 provides a pure signal. Its clarity rivals that of the highest-quality guitar cables.
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 .
- "The cable emulator is a three-way switch on the receiver that you can use to switch between no emulation and emulation of a 15 or 30 foot cable. This may sound like madness but it does actually have an impact on the sound reaching your amp."
- "In use, we were very impressed with the quality of the audio coming from the Relay G30. With the cable emulation switched off we achieved a fantastic tone: crystal clear and perfect for acoustic guitars fitted with pickups."
- "Why buy: Incredibly easy to use; Clear audio signal; Cable emulation. Walk on by: No volume control on transmitter; Receiver not rack-mountable."
- "A great sounding and easy-to-use wireless system with a difference. 8/10"
Mike Hillier, MusicTech Magazine, Read the whole review in the October 2009 issue.
- "Line 6 have taken a new approach to radio systems that offers better sound quality, lower noise and no risk of being pushed out of the radio spectrum in the foreseeable future."

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 kilometres, or more.
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.
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.
- 30-meter range, line-of-sight

The range is excellent and the tone is very good the only weak point is the battery door where the catch is not sustantial enough and is a somewhat poor design when you consider the cost of the unit. I have supported mine with a velcro strap but this should not really be necessary.

A fine product which works well straight out of the box.

Simple to set up and use, no interference or problems and the bass and lead were deep in the audience on the fun dance song in the set!
Some say the plastic case cracks so I guess we will be careful with them. Great for the money and would replay if lost/stolen.

Does exactly what it says on the tin, great service from Andertons again!,

On a technical level, this is the best wireless unit I have used. The signal is strong and clear and there is very little risk of dropout, even when running all the way round the various pubs we play in.
The only thing that prevents me giving this 5 stars is the build quality. The battery cover doesn't close properly when batteries are fitted and needs to be taped down - the plastic clip which secures it it laughable! Also, as I found out within a week of owning it, although the belt clip is exceedingly good, the plastic boss holding it in place isn't and this snapped on its second use. Fortunately Andertons and Line 6 were very quick in replacing the unit, so I didn't suffer.
As an aside, throw away the jack to jack that comes with the unit and buy or make a new one with Neutrik plugs - the included lead is useless.
I'd highly recommend this system, but make sure you always keep a roll of gaffa tape handy.

Wow. This does just what it says. The relay system does in fact seem to give perfect sound when compared to using hardwired cable. I haven't yet managed to walk off the end of a stage to see how far the wireless extends but I did walk down my (albeit short) garden and still had crystal clear reception. Perhaps rather expensive but as with everything these days you get what you pay for

After a couple of weeks use I'm really impressed with this G30 system.
I got it as I was fed up with treading on my main lead as we move about during rehearsals (there are loads of other leads about still but the one hanging down to the floor was always getting in the way). Now - freedom.
I went for this unit as it seemed to offer better sound quality, and I have not been dissapointed. When it arrived I spent a while swapping between a lead and the G30 & couldn't hear any difference. Tried the simulated lead switch which only makes a subtle difference but couldn't see the need for it.
I agree with other reviews that the bass unit is plastic'y & looks fragile, but have positioned it somewhere safe behind a larger unit so it should be OK. The guitar pack is fine, doesn't seem to get in the way too much, although I have had to tie it on to the strap as it fell off on the first day when I caught it on something (I have to use the same strap when switching guitars now but not a problem with straplocks & quickly got used to leaving the strap on me & taking the guitar off it). Also I used another lead for connecting it to the guitar, same length but with two right angled connectors to give more useable length.
Battery life on the guitar pack seems to be about what they say, 8 hours or a bit more, although the battery indicator lights didn't change off full charge until the last half hour then went down very quickly (however this could be the batteries as I'm using Duracell Procell batteries which are designed - so I'm told - to run at full power then cut out quickly rather than gradually degrade, so it could be this ??). I may try a good quality set of rechargeables with two pairs on the go just for rehearsals to be a bit greener.
Overall - I'm really impressed, bit expensive but I'm very glad I went for it

The Line 6 Relay G30 is brilliant....the sound quality is faultless... get one... you won't regret it!
Mr. Niall Diver | Purchase date: 27 April 2010
What a great product. Crystal clear tone and huge range. I love it.
Mr. Lawrence Haley | Purchase date: 24 February 2010
I have just received the new Line 6 Relay G30 with a free guitar lead thrown in as well. Delivery and communication has been first class and this wireless system works really well straight out of the box.
I'm really pleased with this purchase. This system is absolutely hiss free and gives out perfect sound reproduction. I can recommend the Line 6 G30 to everyone and thanks to Andertons for a good professional deal.

I bought the Line 6 Relay as I had seen how it was supposed to be a good alternative to traditional wireless systems and allegedly gave as good a sound as a lead.
Having received the system and used it properly for the first time last night, I can say that I was impressed with the sound quality, which is the big plus of the system and why you would probably buy one of these in the first place.
The plus's for me are the simplicity of use (just plug in and go!) and the sound quality. I used the unit with my Les Paul (humbuckers) and my Charvel Model 3 (single coils) and it coped well with the change in output of the pickups and seemed to give a consistent signal, which was also really useful as on my old Samson system, you had to adjust to compensate for the input signal.
My negatives are around the construction really, The unit is plastic in the flesh and looks a bit flimsy. It will be interesting to see how it stands up to regular gigging. Also, the battery compartment was fragile looking, fiddly to open and especially to close, which could be a real pain if you need to change batteries in an emergency. My biggest gripe though is the belt clip, which is removable so that you can position it horizontally or vertically to your taste. The trouble is that it is really difficult to refit properly (there is no reassuring click to let you know that it is in place and solid) and you have no confidence that the transmitter will not just fall off or come loose. I ended up putting the unit in my back pocket for peace of mind but then it is easy to sit on if you forget it's there.
Also, in these days of rechargeable lithium battery technology on cameras, phones and MP3 players, an internal rechargeable battery system for the transmitter would have been a big plus (I can see vast AA battery bills looming on the horizon as I type).
All in all, the Relay "does what it says on the tin" but could be improved in a few areas to make it a really great affordable (especially at Andertons prices!) product. Maybe when they release an updated model they will solve some of these little niggling issues?

The Line 6 Relay wireless system has got to be the easiest system ever, just plug in, set the channel and go.
There is no latency at all (far better than analogue systems) and the sound quality is simply excellent.
We have not tesetd the range to any great extent but wandering off into the crowd is no problem in all venues so far.
The adjustable cable switch is subtle but does give the ability to take the edge off a Telecaster bridge pickup if you need to.
If I had to critisise anything, it would be the material used for the case, although it is fine so far, I'm not sure of it's long term strength but we will see, maybe they know more than I do?
