Wireless Guitar System Reviews. There are a lot of cheap or less expensive wireless guitar system popping up these days on the internet. Some of these systems seem to be clones of each other as they look the same, have the same features as each other, and are all made in China. Maybe even in the same warehouse? 

Over the last few years, I’ve used quite a few wireless guitar systems. Here are six affordable ones that I really like. Here I take a closer look at the Xvive U2 Wireless Guitar System Review And Manual The Donner DWS-1, The Donner DWS-2, The Rowin Wireless Guitar System, The Excelvan and Tonor systems. 

Xvive and Donner top these less know brands for their wireless systems. The best part is they cost a lot less than Line 6, Shure, Sennheiser and other major brands. 

Below is a more in-depth review of each wireless system plus a comparison chart and links to each product. 

Xvive U2 Wireless Guitar Review 

First up is a the Xvive u2 Wireless Guitar System.  I’m not sure what the U2 stands for but it has nothing to do with a band from Ireland. I originally reviewed this November 16, 2016, on my other website gregkocis.com. and continue to enjoy this unit.

The word ” vive” embodies the desire to live life at the fullest. Xvive products are designed in the USA and made in China.

I own many Xvive guitar pedals so I can say they make quality stuff and the U2 Wireless Guitar System is no exception. I find it has a good battery life and a fast recharge time. Recharging is done by an included USB cable with dual heads for charging both the receiver and the transmitter at the same time. ( This is something both the Donner DDS1 and DS2 Wireless Systems lack, you only get one chord for both units in the Donner systems.)

Excelvan & TONOR Wireless Guitar Receiver Transmitter Systems

The cool thing about the Excelvan and TONOR Wireless Guitar System is that it has 4 built-in effects including “Original Tone” ( just the dry signal), “Bluesy”, “Flanger”, “Tremolo” and “Metal”. The Excelvan uses UHF Wireless ID Pairing Technology and supports 10 variable channels with anti-interference.

The Excelvan & TONOR are both the same unit sold under different brand names.

  • RX BT & Line-in Function — The RX is equipped with built-in Bluetooth reception and line-in function with 8-10m Bluetooth range, through which the accompaniment music of mobile phone can input to RX, thus the musician could play the effects of a band.
  • Built-in rechargeable lithium battery and comes with USB cable for convenient charging, fully charged working time can last more than 5 hours, with corresponding charging and low power indicator light. Plug and play, simple to use.

Donner Wireless DWS-1 & DWS-2

As with Xvive, I own many Donner products and can say they are one of my favorite brands form the less expensive Chinese companies on Amazon.

The Donner DWS-2 is a much better improvement of the DWS-1 and is tied for my number pick with the Xvive’s U2.

Rowin Wireless Guitar System First Look Review

Out of the six wireless systems, this is my least favorite based on the design. I’ve seen many others with the same design (including the Donner DWS-1) on Amazon. It’s safe to say these companies aren’t guitar players and just copying each other products. However, it is a less expensive option and gets the job done. I use this one for coming out of my pedal board some times.

What I Like:

  • Fits all my guitars, Strat, Tele, Jaguar, P-Bass Jazz Bass and so on.
  • Good clean signal.
  • Nice range – will be good for clubs and so on.
  • You can use up to 6 of them – I haven’t tested this as I only have one.
  • Battery life is long and easy to recharge.
  • Battery life indicator.
  • Easy to setup and get running.

Final Thoughts

I would have to pick the Xvive and Donner DWS-2 as a tie for first place. You can’t go wrong with either one. The Xvive u2 is a little better in the design area and gets out of the way better, and the Donner’s DWS-2 has the +5b and an extra removable battery.

The Excelvan & TONOR are both the same units sold under different brand names and add some extra features such as 4 effects witch can be cool. They also have head phone out so you can use it for rehearsing at home.

As far as the Donner DSW-1 and the Rowin they are not bad options if you don’t mind them sticking out of your guitar or bass. I’ve been using them coming out of my pedal board to an amp or recording interface and they get the job done with crystal clear sound quality.
