    Nady 201 Wireless, any of you guys remember if these were good?

    I was looking for a wireless because I fucking coil up cables like nobody's business and I got tired of undoing all the knots.

    I googled "best guitar wireless" and it was all like $400 shit so I went the trve route and bought some state of the art '80s technology off ebay for $20. As a bonus, it matches my state of the art 80s guitars.

    Does anyone who was alive in the 80s remember if these sucked or not? I figure if it was good enough for the dudes back then it is probably good enough for me. I don't care about tone, I play metal.

    It looks like this.

    I googled it and a couple of old dudes who are probably knee deep in tinnitus and child support payments were singing its praises versus modern shit. So expectations are high.

    Yeah I've got one I gigged with for ~3 years with no dropouts. That was in my hair metal and bar band gig days, so I'd go waking into the audience and shit and it was always 100%.

    Only complaint I had was the AC adaptor was janky but that was on account for me banging around the cord and being too cheap to replace it.

    I have one of those. Fortunately, it doesn't work.

    By "trve" you mean " I can't afford much"?

    1) Are these still legal to use, given that the FCC has shifted around a bunch of frequency bands in recent years?

    2) Will these units still function reliably? (See above.)

    Here's what I think is interesting, we used to buy the higher priced UHF models instead of the VHF ones because of interference with TV channels. Now that TV has gone all digital, I wonder if the old VHF wireless units like this actually work better now. Maybe there's less interference. I did try out a Nady VHF back in the late 90s and it had quite a bit of local interference since the store that had them was in south Tempe, right by the huge TV towers on South Mountain. As a result I went UHF twice, first time using AKG and the second time with Sennheiser.

    Garrett, you'll have to let us know how this one works out for you. I'm interested to hear how it works.
