Calabasas, CA (September 26, 2012) – Line 6, Inc. today announced shipment of Relay G55, a tour-grade digital wireless in a compact, half-rack format that enables guitarists to experience wireless freedom without compromising their tone. Built upon the patented, fourth-generation Line 6 digital wireless platform, Relay G55 joins the rest of the Relay instrument wireless family in leading the digital wireless revolution for guitarists.

Unlike analog wireless gear, Relay systems never use signal companding to compress and expand the signal, and therefore have the unique ability to deliver full dynamic range. With 12 channels of 24-bit audio, full 10Hz–20kHz frequency response and 117dB dynamic range (A weighted), the Relay G55 digital wireless signal is indistinguishable from a high-quality guitar cable, up to 300 feet. Unique, selectable Cable Tone functionality simulates the subtle frequency roll-off characteristics of a standard 25-foot cable.

Relay G55 operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band, which is free from audio interference from TV broadcasts, white space devices and countless other sources that plague analog wireless systems. In addition, Line 6 digital wireless systems use encoded DCL (Digital Channel Lock) technology to distinguish and protect signals from third-party sources.

Like all Line 6 digital wireless systems, Relay G55 is easy to set up and use. Customers can simply pick any of the 12 available channels and the transmitter and receiver lock together instantly. Worldwide, license-free operation eliminates worry about fees or compatibility issues.

All Line 6 digital wireless products share the same technology platform, making it easy for customers to mix and match instrument and vocal systems to suit their needs. Customers can use up to 12 Relay G55 systems simultaneously, or combine Relay and XD-V products, to create a rig ready for any live sound scenario.

Relay G55 is built for rock-solid performance night after night. Featuring a robust metal body, the bodypack transmitter is rugged, reliable and ready for the road. The receiver is housed in a solid aluminum chassis and fits easily on top of an amplifier—while the optional rack mount kit makes it easy to adapt Relay G55 to any professional installation.

Relay G55 is now available at a USMSRP of $629.99.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
