I got annoyed at cables breaking, got a Sennheiser freeport on the cheap, and it works fine.
I think everything will slightly colour the sound, but I am very happy with the results

That good eh? I have considered getting a proper one, and having the freeport as a spare, but I the quality and value for money of them is just excellent.
How much can you get them for? If you are going to, its probably better to get it soon, the stores are being bought up at the moment, so now would be cheaper?
I paid something like £60 or £70 on eBay

Hey I was wondering if wireless guitar systems work if you plug it into the guitars and then the pedals (distortion, chorus, flanger, eq, reverb, etc.) and then from the pedal into the amp? I heard someone said that it does not work like that.

Do you mean actually mounting it to the pedal board john? I have done that and it does work, but you have to be aware of the cords of anyone you are jamming with because their cables will break your antenna...

I got the Freeport off of eBay and I need help with something... Is there any way to attach the transmitter on the strap not using the weak clip on it??? Like is there any pouch that will fit the transmitter and go on a strap?

I was jamming with a dude last month who had some wireless deal, but he was saying he can't get any feedback with it. So for the tunes that need him to get feedback, he swaps in a cord. I have no experience with wireless but I'm looking at going that way soon as I too have too many damn cables running all over the stage.

That's what I'm looking for, but it's in the UK.. :( Shipping is like 4-5 times the cost of the item for it to come to the US. 8O I also just found one from Dunlop that is sold on Amazon.com and AMS. :)

Yah depending on how many guitars you have . if you only have 1 guitar you can use eithe electrical or Medical tape to wrap around the unit to attach it to your strat!!!. but if you have more then one axe the afix it to your belt!! and coil and secure any slack from the attached cable!!!
