Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the DWG-1000 Digital Wireless Guitar System by Brace
Audio. The DWG-1000 is a true plug ‘n play device, however, reading this user guide
will ensure that you get the most from your new wireless system.
Wireless Audio for the 21st Century
Now you can enjoy the freedom of performing without the restriction of guitar
cables. Never again will you be limited by cable length, worried about yanking the
cable out of your amp, or mistakenly dragging your effects boxes across the stage.
Older radio-based wireless systems had transmission problems, as well as clumsy
antennas that had to be positioned just right. This is Digital baby, and Brace Audio’s
unique digital technology does away with the hiss, crackle, signal loss and RF
interference inherent with UHF /VHF systems.
Common instrument cables can also contribute to signal loss, which is why the
DWG-1000 is recommended for all guitarists and bassists - electric and
acoustic-electric; not just for those doing on-stage acrobatics.
How the DWG-1000 Works
In the transmitter module, the guitar signal is converted into pristine digital audio.
Brace Guitar Cable Emulation™ models the highest quality 15 foot cable. Using
2.4GHz spread spectrum transmission, the digitized signal is sent to the receiver unit.
There, it´s converted back to analog audio, with no signal loss - and no loss of high
frequencies due to long cable runs.
Never before has wireless audio been so trouble-free or easy to use, with the ability
to deliver lossless digital quality. Up to six receivers and 12 transmitters per receiver*
can operate on a stage, so everyone in the band can use one!
*One Tx per Rx at a time.

What’s in the box?
Your DWG-1000 Digital Wireless Guitar System contains:
•
•
•
•
•
•
1 - Transmitter (Tx / Gray Unit)
1 - Receiver (Rx / Dark Green Unit)
1 - AC Adapter (for Rx)
2 - 1/4” to 1/8” Guitar Cables
2 - Belt Clips
This User Guide (Duh...)
Quick Start
1) Register your product at http://www.braceaudio.com
2) Use batteries for the Receiver (Rx) or connect the AC Adapter.
3) Plug cable from Receiver (Rx / Dark Green) Audio Out into your
amplifier input. If audio buzz is heard, move the unit to a new location.
4) Plug cable from your guitar into Transmitter (Tx / Gray) Audio In.
5) Each system is a pre-linked pair so there is nothing to do but confirm
that the Link LED lights solid on both the Tx and RX units to show a
successful wireless connection.
6) You are now ready to rock! (Or jazz...)
4
Plugging the cable into the Tx or Rx units switches the unit on. To save
battery life, unplug the cable to switch the unit off when not in use. Upon
plugging in the cable, the Link LED will pulse steadily while it is waiting to
make the wireless connection.

unfolded paper clip to access the button.
The LED lights solid when a wireless
connection is made between the Tx and Rx
units, and pulses when finding a connection
to one of over 65,000 channels (!)
FN
LINK LOW B
5. Belt Clip (”BC”)
4. Audio In Jack (”That Hole”)
3. Low Battery LED (”LOW B”)
When the batteries are low (less than 15
minutes of battery life), the Low Battery LED
lights solid.
Plug the 1/8” connector on the
included cable into the Audio In
Jack, and the 1/4” connector into
your guitar. This jack also acts as a
switch, turning the unit on when
the plug is inserted.
Unplug the cable to turn the unit
off.

4. Audio Out Jack (”The Other Hole”)
Plug the 1/8” connector on the included
cable into the Audio Out Jack, and the 1/4”
connector into your amplifier. This jack also
acts as a switch, turning the unit on when
the plug is inserted. Unplug the cable to
turn the unit off. Before plugging the Rx into
your guitar amp, turn the amplifier volume
all the way down. This will prevent feedback
or unwanted pops.
Cable Strain Relief
!
Remove belt clip on Transmitter. Thread cable through the notch in the clip, then
snap the belt clip back onto Transmitter. This will provide strain relief for the cable.
Placement of Tx / Rx Units
Transmitter (Tx / Gray Unit)
“I am so
ful.. to
beauti
me...”
Place Tx unit on your hip - on the side of the
guitar neck, or away from the guitar output.
The rounded dome should point away from
your body.
Receiver (Rx / Dark Green Unit)
The RX unit can be placed on the amplifier or
on the stage.
Alternatively you could place the RX unit
as the first device in-line with your stomp boxes.
You’ll get the same great performance with the
placement and set-up that works best for you.
Rx (Dark Green)
Tx (Gray)

Placement
Performance may vary depending on location & environment. Not to mention how much you practice...

Low Battery LED
The low battery LED will turn on when the battery power is at a minimum,
indicating 15 minutes or less left of battery life. When this occurs, follow the
instructions under Changing Batteries.
Changing Batteries
To change batteries on either the Transmitter or Receiver, remove the cover
plate on the back of the unit. Press down at the top and slide the cover open.
Each unit takes two “AA”batteries. Be sure to observe the proper polarity of
the batteries.
AC Adapter
The DWG-1000 Receiver (Rx) can be operated with the supplied AC adapter
or two AA batteries. The provided AC adapter accepts input voltages from
110V - 220V. Connect the AC adapter‘s power cord to the Rx AC adapter
power input jack.
8
If you always intend to power the Rx from
the AC Adapter, remove the batteries.
Changing Channels
DWG-1000 system components are linked at the factory. In the rare event that
the Link LEDs on both the Transmitter and Receiver units continue to blink and
fail to light solid, your DWG-1000 might be sharing channels with another
wireless system. The RF Mating feature enables you to switch to one of over
65,000 non-competing channels. To switch channels, use an unfolded paper
clip to depress the Function Buttons.

1) Plug guitar cables into each unit to turn them on, (snicker) and place
the Rx and Tx units close to each other. (Don’t stare. They’re shy...)
2) On the Receiver unit (RX/Dark Green) press in the Function Button and
hold until the Link LED blinks rapidly. Release the button at this point. RF
mating has been initiated now on the RX unit.
3) On the Transmitter unit (Tx/Gray), press in the Function Button and hold
until the Link LED blinks rapidly. Release the button at this point. The TX
unit will now negotiate with the RX unit and a new random channel will be
assigned. When finished, both RX and TX LEDs will light solid indicating
that the units are now correctly working on the new channel.
To exit RF Mating mode, turn the units off (unplug the cables) and they will retain
their new mating ID; even after changing batteries. Future frequencies may vary
based on location, so tattoos are not advised, though flowers and breakfast in
9
bed would be a nice touch.
Configuring Multiple Transmitters
Up to 12 DWG-1000 TX transmitters can be associated, or bonded, to each
receiver. But it’s only one Transmitter at a time! This is very cool for having
your entire rack of axes hooked-up and ready to go; live or in the studio.
Tx - 1c
!
Tx - 1b
Tx - 1a
etc...
Rx-1
Plug cables into
all units first!
Oh, grow up!
1. Place Tx-1a close to the receiver. Push and hold the paperclip button on
transmitter unit 1a until the link LED blinks rapidly.
2. Place Tx-1b close to the receiver. Push and hold the paperclip button on
transmitter unit 1b until the link LED blinks rapidly.
3. Continue for all remaining transmitters you want to configure...
4. Push and hold the paperclip button on the single receiver unit until the link LED
blinks rapidly. You must press the Rx button last, or things won’t work!
5. Wait until the link LED's go solid on all the units and then you are done.
All the transmit units are now bonded to the single receiver; even after they are
shut off. If you change batteries, they will still be bonded. The bonded channel
number is a random value of 1 - 65,536. This allows multiple band members to
bond their transmitters to their own receivers without worrying that there will be
a conflict on a band-mate’s channel.
Please note: You cannot use more than one of the bonded transmitters at a
time. If you do, two (or more) bonded channels will collide with each other. Life as we know it - could come to and end, and it would be your fault. And future
authorities will find out who you were, because you registered your rig at
www.braceaudio.com. So, one axe at a time, please. The World thanks you...
10
Always unplug the transmitter(s) that you are NOT using,
to prevent problems when switching to your next axe!
