    How do you guys plug in?

    I have an issue being tied to a cord, so...as you might guess...I have used this for years at church. Love it...works great and I'm free to move around. What do you folks use to "plug in"?

    I've got a little set of the joyo wireless adapters. Small and convenient, but not sure if theyd be good for gigging.

    Currently I'm using a low-end (~$60) Nady wireless unit, but I'm planning to replace it with something better when I can afford to. (Line 6 makes a good one, but it's over $300.) The Nady I have is cheaply made and not very robust. It also seems to get interference/static in some of the venues we play.

    Back in the early 1980s, I was the first pro player in Albuquerque to use a wireless rig onstage 6 nights a week. I was also very active on (and sometimes off) stage. That thing got me in trouble or injured more than once.

    You can see the transmitter on my strap in this pic. (This shot was midway through a jump off a 4' high drum riser. And coincidentally, the audience member on the far right of the frame in the blue shirt is the other guitarist in the band I'm playing in now. Also, our current bass player is the guy playing the white Rickenbacker to my right in this shot.)

    Electric guitars or basses. There's somewhat of a subculture here on the forum of guitar players and other musicians. We laugh, but it's usually at our own playing.

    I'm still wired, haven't sprung for the wireless yet. Typically I'm sitting on a stool, but not tripping on the cords would be nice when I do need to move around.

    I'm still hard-wired, but Vaughn, you really should be closer to the mosh-pit before jumping in!

    They were standing back because they didn't want me to fall on them.
