: Hey,
: Who has made experiences with a TALKBOX and a bass? Does this work? Did U buy the talkbox or have U made it yourself?

The Heil Talkbox is now made my Dunlop I think...All it is, is a metal
box with a speaker inside, driven by the line out of a guitar amp,
the sound comes out of the Talk box by way of a plastic hose which
you put in your mouth...The thing will rattle your teeth!!!...You then
stand in front of a microphone which picks up the sound coming out
of your mouth...You can sort of form words, "wahs", sing along with
the signal, whatever....Peter Frampton, Joe Walsh, Bon Jovi, and
others have used it with cool results....The unit is available at
most Guitar Centers, and retails for around $150 as recall...
I've never tried it on bass, just guitar...


Rock on..
Pat H
