May 6, 2011 Line 6 Spotlight
Posted by Line6DP
If anyone knows his way around a pedal board it’s John Chandler of Pro Stage Gear, the makers of Pedaltrain pedal boards. When he wanted to make his own wireless pedal board he knew who to call.
I wanted to find a way to use my pedal board onstage or in a studio without being tethered by cables running to my amp. But how? I have always been pretty skeptical of wireless units but I started hearing folks say that the digital wireless units from Line 6 actually sounded better than their cables! I couldn’t believe it and wanted to check it out myself.
Pic 1. Here’s my new PT-3 pedal board already together and powered by a Sanyo Pedal Juice
rechargeable power supply. As you can see there’s very little room for wireless.
Pic 2. Since the Visual Sound H2O is my last pedal in the chain I thought would stick the Relay®
digital wireless transmitter somewhere close to it.
Pic 3. I attached the TBP12 transmitter right to the side of the pedal since it’s
kinda tall and flat on the side.
Pic 4. Next, I mounted the Relay® RSXS12 receiver onto one of our PB2 Pedal Boosters.
It sits nicely over the amp handle.
Pic 5. Since Line 6 included a Tuner Out on the RXS12 receiver, I just couldn’t
leave it alone so I added my tuner.
Pic 6. My totally wireless rig! (Well, except for my white coil-ee cable of doom to the input.)
Next time I play the Grammy® awards and have 2.3 seconds to get on and off the stage I’ll be ready!
