    Well I tried it anyway!
    I've been wanting to try wireless mic.
    I didn't really want a dedicated mic for the job as I already have a couple that do the trick.
    So I started looking at 2.4gz wireless adapters.
    I picked up a XVive U3 set and tested it last night at practice.

    The transmitter fits nice and snug into the mic. It clicks in place just like a cable.
    But! The fun part is there is no cable! Yay!

    Anyway, I ran around the studio and had perfect connectivity everywhere inside, with zero dropouts. I had seen the video of some guy outside who simply turned around and walked away from the RX, and the dropouts commenced at an alarmingly short distance. Did not fill me with confidence I must say.
    That being said, I saw other reviews that were highly complimentary. So... based on the fact that my local pusher had these for a price among the lowest I've seen, and the fact I could take it back if dissatisfied, I took the chance.
    I even ran around the corner (inside) to the bathroom and closed the door, still no dropout.
    I do not recommend taking your live wireless mic into the bathroom... just sayin'.:p
    Worked great all night, and I thoroughly enjoyed having control over my own mic sound and volume (Bose L1) without having to bug someone else, or fiddle with the settings that another band had adjusted the PA to.
    Oh... and I hate cables. :)
    Further testing and range limits to be performed over the next few days, but if last night is any indicator, it's a win!
    Me likey!

    Congrats!

    Now with these and your wireless for guitar you can safely sing and play while standing in a puddle. Microphone shocks are literally the only thing that gets me out of having to sing with my band.

    That’s the reason we only play 45 min sets!

    Wait what?! You can hold it that long...I'd better to be rockin some Depends for anything over 20 min...what a drag it is getting old.o_O

    I'm thinking about trying out wireless for my guitars. I love the idea of not being tethered when I'm playing. You know for all the pee breaks.;)

    One of my favourite scenes from a film!

    The way that Caine threatens Martin with the “genital cuff”, makes me laugh every time.

    Outstanding acting from both!

    This movie! I think I have never laughed so long continuously and so completely. The Dr. Schaffhausen appearance scene is just too much.

    But as far as things electrical and ... nothing can rival "don't you go whiz on that electric fence":

    Yeah, with my way less than "cat like reflexes" I have reoccurring nightmares of getting tangled up in my cable causing me to bust my a$$ and break my guitar...cold chills...can't think about it...yeah I need wireless in my life. I think I read somewhere one didn't fit the SS tho? What are you using?

    I'm using Line 6 G10. It fits perfectly in the SS, or pretty much anything else except piezo guitars.
    I hear good things about Xvive U2, but have not tried it.

    Thanks buddy!

    Cool, those are actually the two I've honed in on.

    I just knock around in my "Beat Lab" (Spare bedroom/*former* dogs bedroom) so I think either will be more than adequate to aid in my quest for personal/guitar safety. Much, much better than the bubble wrap idea I had..o_O

    Power to make internet purchases....ENGAGED!!!!
