: : In the ever-present search to find my 'voice' on my bass I am looking to new effects, or old ones used in new ways, whichever happens first. Couple of questions...Has anyone ever used a talk box (like the Dunlop "heil talk box" or the Rocktron "Banshee") on a bass guitar? Peter Frampton sure does some fun stuff with his guitar and one, but would it work on lower freqs? Has anyone ever even HEARD of this?

: Robin,
: I don't recall ever hearing anyone use a talk box with a bass, but I don't see why it couldn't be done. Thinking about it, I'd imagine it would sound like a hybrid of Peter Frampton and Darth Vader, which would probably be *way* cool...

: : Also, anyone have any experience with the Boss Bass Synth pedal? I had the line 6 Filter Modeler and was thoroughly disappointed with it. Wonder if that one is any different.

: Haven't tried that one, but Boss's bass effects are usually pretty decent.

: Hope that helps!
