hey I’m Stevie T and there has been a question plaguing mankind since the beginning of time which is better guitar cable or Wireless so we’re gonna pit the two against each other one-on-one to definitively find out which is better and nu X was kind enough to send me a pair of their b2 2.4 gigahertz wireless systems to help put this to the test can these modern-day wireless guitar systems retire the wire I just came up with that witty actually that was kind of dumb so between the two which is more obtrusive by that I mean what is gonna get in your way more when you’re playing a gig well let’s put them to the ultimate test [Music] so Wireless obviously takes the cake in this contest I mean imagine you’re playing a gig you’re the guitarist and you look over and your bass players coming at you like this to like jam out with you and then he gets his cord wrapped around your cord and you’re tied together and let me tell you you don’t want to be connected with your bass player any more than you have to because your bass player needs to get his pimply ass on his on side of the frigging stage okay now the Knux b2 has 32 bit high quality audio so in theory we shouldn’t be able to tell a difference here all right so I’m gonna play a little riff e riff twice and you’re gonna have to guess which riff was with the chord and what riff was with the wireless unit all right okay riff one [Music] I’m gonna splice the rifts together so we can hear more clearly [Music] all right do you have your guesses rif-1 was with the cable riff too was with the knocks [Music] so they sound almost identical if anything the wireless track sounds a little bit darker but definitely not worse although there’s probably audio files out there who would be like um actually there’s a huge sound difference come on well you can shove it I didn’t hear much of a sound difference I’m giving them a tie you know I why didn’t I just measure the cable yeah that would have made a lot more sense then you know well either way we got our answer let’s see how much range we can get with the wireless knocks [Music] that gets a little further so the nu X gives you 15 meters of operation range 30 meters in open air so a little bit further than cord let’s see how far it can really go I can’t imagine it’s still working but no I don’t I’ll just keep playing what how far it works now in terms of ease of use it doesn’t get much easier than a guitar cable you plug this into the app and you plug this end into your spanked that was inappropriate I’m cutting that part out you plug this end into a guitar so can a wireless guitar system be that easy here ladies and gentlemen was the first wireless guitar system I ever used and boy let me tell you they have come a long way since these were just Benedikt cumbersome and the worst thing about these was that they ran on batteries which died after like 43 seconds I remember taking out the battery and licking it just to see if there was any juice left in it let’s see if there’s any juice left in this one after all these years kidding it’s dead and these guys think fuck don’t take batteries you actually charge them with this cable like you would charge your phone finally wireless guitar systems have made it to the modern day era well won’t be needing this anymore clang OH alright so surprisingly they are both equally easy to set up and use the Nu xB to actually has four different channels to choose from in case you get interference on one but I’ve never had to change the channel once the default channel has always worked perfectly so and there’s something else that I can do with these guys that I couldn’t do with the guitar K ball let’s say for example I have to go to the bathroom to drop a huge mud goblin normally I’d have to put the guitar down or unplug the guitar and be stuck on the faecal chair for half an hour without distortion but with these guys I can play guitar from the bathroom and still have my amp sounds [Applause] [Music] [Music] so cables are pretty portable but let me tell ya packing up cables that’s a pain in my nut first you got to line the damn thing then take it to your gig unwind it play your gig wind it back up you take it home in your gig bag and suddenly it’s become a mangled mess of machinist I don’t even know what that means so then you gotta untangle the damn thing the Knux however are as portable as a chihuahua in a purse you just come into each other BAM good to go so in terms of cost obviously guitar cables are gonna be the cheaper option I mean you could pick up a ten-foot guitar cable online for like 10 bucks whereas the Nu xb2 we’re just gonna call it the Knux because it says Knox on it these guys will set you back about 130 us on Amazon not to say there aren’t expensive cables I mean take this one for example 240 bucks for a 40-foot cable that’s expensive and you can get a 6-pack of patch cables for around $130,000 I think I’ll buy two packs so I mean there’s expensive options and there’s cheap options for both however cheap cables can sometimes have a lot of interference noise you know they don’t have as good shielding and they have a tendency to short out way sooner though I will say a hundred thirty bucks for something like this it’s definitely a bargain for those who want to go wireless now if you want your own set of Nu X B 2 wireless guitar systems then follow my link in the description to get your own set for $30 off on Amazon then you can play guitar from your bathroom wouldn’t that be fun ah alright so in conclusion which is better and the answer is it depends a lot of people would like the freedom that wireless gives you and these modern-day wireless systems are absolutely top-notch they’ve come a long way over the years but then there might be someone who only plays guitar once every six months who would be happy with just a $10 cable so it really depends on the person and their needs anyways thank you guys so much for watching be sure to subscribe and click on the notification Bell ding ding ding ding ding I’ll see you in the next video BAM hmm

Hey Hey! hello to all my internet friends, I’m Stevie T. And uh . . . (laughing into his hands) Apparently the writers of this commercial think guitarists are just a bunch of IDIOTS! Because here we have a commercial, where a girl is playing guitar, playing a SICK shred. A shred so sick that it leaves her dad feeling like a defeated. But did she really outshred her dad?
Did if she really plays such a sick solo? Well, I’ll let you be the judge. Here it is… *SOLO!* (╯o╰)
aaww *stevie is about to burst out* ＦＡＫＥ！ That guitar playing was about as real as Pamela Anderson’s breasticles! Let’s see it one more time. Maybe it looks more real the second time around, we’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. *MORE SOLO!* (╯o╰)
*aaww* Okay, come on Laughing Cow, don’t– Don’t insult our intelligence. Did you really think no one was gonna notice how FAKE that guitar solo was? Cuz that right there… It’s some guitar shreddery-fakery. It’s a fake shred. It’s a “Fred”. What I would like to know is what was the auditioning process for this commercial. “Like, okay, so can you play guitar? No? Perfect.” “and… ummm…” “How well can you pretend to play guitar?” *plz end my suffering* “OOHH! Well, that was just perfect I was totally fooled, meeeh” Okay look, so it’s obvious to us that this guitar playing is fake. But there are non-musicians out there who are probably like: “ohmae god, thot gurl iz like so amaezing at guitar” “clap clap clap clap” But I’m gonna prove to everyone, what it would look like if that girl really DID play that guitar solo. So I’m gonna quickly learn that solo. When I learn a solo, I like to slow the solo down so I can hear every note 😉 It’s a good tip for anyone out there who wants to learn a solo. *slowed down solo*
*sounds like a rock cover of oriental music* Not a complicated riff… *ur boi stevie singing to a slowed down solo* so… *stevie learning that solo* *nice bend m8* *100% accurate solo* There you go, that’s what the solo actually looks like when you play it, Okay, now it’s time to compare it to the commercial. This should prove once and for all the immense fakery. 0 | 1
Laughing Cow | Ur boi Stevie T. I love how she’s like: “Oh, wut’s wrong, Dad? r u jealous of mah sick shreds? mmmmm” Oooh, We’ll see how proud you are when I show everyone what it would sound like, if your guitar was plugged in! *raw footage of the commercial without a solo editted in* And guess what, kid?
That look on your dad’s face… That’s not jealousy of your guitar playing.
That’s the look of embarrassment… TO HAVE YOU AS A DAUGHTER! Because you are a fake guitarist! You’re a “Guifakist”! Nah I’m just teasin’, but seriously on a scale from one to ten. That guitar solo was fake as… Nah I’m just teasin’, but seriously on a scale from one to ten. That guitar solo was fake as ＢＡＬＬＳ! (stevie mocking the girl from the commercial) What am I doing right now. You know what I would do if that girl was my daughter? *fake solo, it’s a “folo”* (╯o╰)
aaaww… ＹＯＵ ＳＨＵＴ ＹＯＵＲ ＭＯＵＴＨ！ You think you can shred?! You’re an embarrassment to your entire family… Now I’m gonna have to school you…
In The Name of Shred *ＳＩＣＫ ＳＨＲＥＤＤＩＮＧ* ＧＯ ＴＯ ＹＯＵＲ ＲＯＯＭ ＵＮＴＩＬ ＦＯＲＥＶＥＲ！ I would like to take a moment to say, that I in no way condone the verbal abuse of children, so I have to say… I apologize for yelling. Do you accept my apology? (╯o╰)
. . . Do you accept my apology? (╯o╰)
. . . Good (╯o╰)
*kill me* You know, this reminds me of those times in the movies, when someone is playing a video game… (Stevie T. spazzing out with a PS4 controller) but it’s so obvious that they’re NOT playing a video game. (Stevie T. spazzing out with a PS4 controller)
but it’s so obvious that they’re NOT playing a video game. (Stevie T. spazzing out with a PS4 controller) Or when someone’s typing on a computer in the movies, (Coding in a nutshell)
and it couldn’t be more obvious that they weren’t typing. They oversell it so much. They just end up looking like a foolish but here I would have liked to see them sell it a bit more. At least move your damn fingers, you know, it’s like don’t just sit there like this… *i want to die* If they would have been least tried even a LITTLE bit to make it look more legit, I could give them a little bit more credit. No, no No, I couldn’t give them credit still, because what they should have done was… Oh, I don’t know, hire someone who can actually play guitar?!! Was that not an option and look, I get it… There’s not a lot of young female guitarists out there, but they are out there. Why not hire this girl? This girl can shred like nobody’s business. Actually, you know what screw it. I’ll do it myself. I’ll do it myself. I don’t even care! Commercial people can’t do anything right. sssSSS SICK OF HAVING TO FIX THEIR PROBLEMS! Give me a guitar, these people suck at commercials! (this is what they should air) (Big foot cowardly scream) You know what?
I just got a brilliant idea for a Laughing Cow commercial! Ha! How about we record somebody talking, but for the actual commercial, we’ll hire someone who can’t actually talk. Laughing Cow cheese… So creamy, so yummy, (wtf?)
so good for your nipples, So luscious, so scrumpsh, So– Fake because they can’t hire someone to accurately reenact a COMMERCIAL BIT?! D:
