Price - 399 MAP - After playing some coupon and price match games I got it for $324 shipped.
The Good - Signal seems rock solid - much better than my old AKG units. When I flipped back and forth with a cable at first I thought I heard a small difference but I've gotten used to it or I imagined it. Receiver goes right on the pedal board and runs off my Voodoo labs Power supply just great. Signal strength and body pack BATTERY strength are clearly displayed on the pedal board mounted receiver. The Battery indicator has 3 green bars that click down like a gas gage - really nice - then goes red with you are getting close... The battery power is a bit pessimistic, which is good, even when you go "red" you'll still make it to the next break - easy. During practice I let it go just to see how much I had left - played well over an hour before it finally stopped.
Everything on the G50 is METAL and seems VERY well made - I heard guys with the G30 complain about the battery door - that's not an issue with the G50. The G30 does use a STANDARD 1/4 inch cable which is a plus but the rest of it is plastic and I didn't think it would hold up for me.
The Bad - For a unit that seems really well made the instrument cable it comes with it is disappointing - too short and just seems to not be up to the same quality as the rest of the unit. It also uses a special connector to go to the body pack rather than 1/4". Fortunately it's the same connector that Shure uses for a bunch of their stuff! I plan on replacing it with a Lava cable or one of the Shure cables that is compatible with the connector on the G50.
I'd buy it again. :D
