As already posted it is very important to check the frequency response the AT 2000 series goes down to 100HZ the 3000/ 4000 and 5000 series to 70Hz

What do those of you who do use wireless do with effects?
Is it Bass->wireless->effects->amp or
Bass->effects->wireless->amp?

I used to have the receiver on my pedalboard, so bass - wireless - fx - amp - mic.

Seems silly to go bass - fx- wireless...

Wireless Systems

I saw in a video, a band was performing but their guitars didn't have any cords attached. Do they use some sort of wireless system, can someone help me on this one?

Yep that's a wireless kit, decent ones start around $600.


I've noticed you have a lot of questions about nearly every aspect of bass gear. I thought I would give you my opinion which I hope you consider because in the long run you will be better off 8)

Stop worrying about pedals and wireless kits until you have a bass and amp you are really happy with. I know they are tempting because they are "cheap" in comparison, but they just stop you from getting a better bass or amp sooner.

You can get a decent Fender copy for $400, but you can't get an Ampeg/GK/SWR/whatever copy for $400. Good amps just cost a lot of money. You will probably need around 300 watts (or 100 watts if you get a tube amp) through a 4x10 (or a less common a 2x12).

Last thing, buy used if you can. You will save money and the gear will keep its resale value if you look after it. This means you can upgrade and not lose money, plus you are young and you will probably change your mind about your gear at some point in the next few years.

Yep - even wrote a review (http://www.bassplayer.co.nz/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=1847). I really like it. If I had to critise, I wouldn't want to give it too many hard knocks, and the clip it has on it slides off the strap pretty easily. I used a bit of velcro and a wrist band to make a more secure fastener (Photos in the post).

When I was playing rockabilly and climbing up on bars and tables, running around in the street and other such foolishness with the double bass, I used an AKG WS140 bug system. The transmitter is tiny, holds an AAA battery which lasts for two gigs, and it just sits in the jack socket on your axe. I never got dropout, even down the road outside the venue, and the tone quality was reasonably good. Not as good as a cable, but just needing a little tweak of the eq. I know this is a zombie thread, but thought the info might be of use to someone.

So after plenty of tweaking and adjusting I've found that the Nady system invariably distorts when playing anything below a B1. Guess that'll have to go up on trademe and I'll use the money to buy another lead :P
