    Comments about Nady MGT 16 UHF Wireless Instrument System:

    I play ukulele as well as leading a number of ukulele groups. I also perform and entertain at senior homes and wanted a wireless system to avoid cables that may trip seniors etc.
    I checked various systems, such as the line 6 series, which I use for wireless vocals and did not want an additional transmitter on my belt and another fairly large reciever
    Having found the MGT 16 on line I considered it to be a good option, particularly being that the transmitter plugs directly into the instrument and the receiver is so small.
    Shipping was prompt and the MGT 16 was so easy to use I was using it within 15 minutes of having received it.
    I was very impressed, there is no difference in sound between this unit and a direct cable connection to my amp.
    Range is far more than almost anybody would need and I have used it on a number of ukulele's, my guitar as well as a bass guitar.
    If you are looking to go wireless on your instrument, you won't go wrong with this unit.
    Battery capability is a bonus that I have used on a number of occasions.
    I highly recommend this wireless system.

    Comments about Nady MGT 16 UHF Wireless Instrument System:

    I purchased this wireless a couple of months ago and it really preforms well. I can't tell the difference between the wireless and a cord. It has some features that only the more expensive wireless systems offer. 16 channels is unheard of with this cost for a wireless system. I am very satisfied with it.
