As much as I still love plugging in cables between my guitar and amp, it’s hard to dispute the untangled freedom and clear fidelity many of the new digital wireless systems currently offer. Even more astonishing is that most of these wireless units are remarkably affordable for working guitarists.

The bigger question is, which is the best one for your applications? While I can’t make that decision for you, I can tell you I’ve tried many - from compact to rack - and the new Sennheiser XSW-D Wireless Digital Pedalboard Set is a professional wireless system that sits smack-dab between budget- and touring-grade wireless systems.

Paul Riario

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
