Get a Free Line 6 Relay G10T Wireless Transmitter with Spider V Purchase

Line 6 LogoYou’ve put in the hours and hours of rehearsal time. You’ve dealt with all the drudgeries of booking the gigs. When it’s time to finally get up on stage and show the world what you’ve got, you don’t want to be tied to an instrument cable trailing off behind you.

Live musicians have relied on wireless transmitters to give them complete freedom on stage for years. The concept is pretty simple. Players connect a small cable to a transmitter pack, usually clipped onto a guitar strap, and that transmitter carries the instrument’s signal to a receiver that runs it thru an amplifier and then on to the rest of the house.

And while the concept may indeed be simple, the process of making a wireless transmitter reliable and usable is no easy task. That’s where Line 6 came in with its Relay G10T wireless system. Unlike traditional systems that require a transmitter pack, the Relay G10T is a single piece of kit that connects directly to an instrument’s input jack, no cable required.

Guitarists who’ve already purchased one of Line 6’s newest amplifiers, the Spider V, can take advantage of a limited-time opportunity to pick up a Relay G10T transmitter for free. This offer is open to U.S. customers only, and some restrictions apply. This promotion ends on July 31, 2017.

Rebates Available for Line 6 Wireless Guitar and Vocal Systems

Line 6 LogoPlaying live in front of a crowd can be a great experience. But one thing you definitely don’t want to worry about as a performing musician is your gear getting in the way of that next killer riff or vocal run. Modern players often work with a small army of accessories and effects to fine tune their sound. All of those extra devices come with attendant cables and cords which can get downright complex! That means eliminating even one cable from the mix can save a lot of hassle.

Wireless guitar/microphone systems have been around for decades. But musical-instrument manufacturer Line 6 has done a lot of work in recent years to improve the wireless experience for musicians. The company has designed six different wireless systems. Right now, Line 6 is offering rebates to anyone who purchases one of these systems:

  • Relay G90 Guitar Wireless System – $100 rebate
  • Relay G75 Guitar Wireless System – $100 rebate
  • Relay G70 Guitar Wireless System – $100 rebate
  • Relay G55 Guitar Wireless System – $50 rebate
  • Relay G50 Guitar Wireless System – $50 rebate
  • Relay G30 Guitar Wireless System – $50 rebate

This rebate offer from Line 6 is available only to customers with U.S. mailing addresses. Eligible products must be new, not used or refurbished, and must be purchased from authorized Line 6 dealers.

The rebate offer is active now and ends on July 31, 2017. Visit the Line 6 website for complete details.

Line 6 Variax Shuriken Guitar Now Available

Line 6 ShurikenSince it first introduced the Variax guitar line over a decade ago, Line 6 has been working hard to improve the design and playability of what is often dubbed “the world’s first modeling guitar.” Line 6 took the Variax line to new heights with the JTV (James Tyler Variax) line that marked the first major upgrade to the Variax line. Now, Line 6 is taking Variax even further with the new Variax Shuriken guitar:

Featuring a longer scale length, advanced Variax HD technology and an assertive body shape, the Variax Shuriken guitar is the result of intense collaboration between Line 6, Yamaha Guitar Development, and guitarist Steve “Stevic” MacKay of Twelve Foot Ninja. Designed for heavier or more technical styles of music, Variax Shuriken delivers exceptional playability, clear and tight tone—plus the unrivaled versatility that Variax HD modeling provides.

If you like to perform with heavier strings and lower tunings, Variax Shuriken features a 27” scale length that delivers optimized playability and punchier, more-precise tones. The extended scale length also works in conjunction with Variax alternative tunings—so you can play in any tuning, regardless of the tension and feel of the strings. With Variax Shuriken, you can go far beyond the range of any standard 6, 7 or even 8 string guitar.

Variax Shuriken has all of the features of previous Variax guitars, with the ability to model a number of vintage electric guitars and acoustic stringed instruments. The increased scale length of Shuriken is new to the Variax line, and should be useful to players looking to get deeper, heavier tones. Variax Shuriken has Line 6’s Variax Digital Interface (VDI) built-in, so it works seamlessly with most VDI-equipped products.

Variax Shuriken is currently available for purchase from many musical-instrument vendors with a starting price of $1399.
