Basically I'm bored, don't have enough to complete my gigging setup (marshall/orange combo) so I figure I'd mess around with a talkbox. It seems kind of pointless because it's a sound I use (other than dicking around) and I only really need it for a pumpkin song or two, man in the box, and maybe a bon jovi song every now and then. And with autotune being "free", it really does seem like a waste of money.

On the other hand, I'll probably keep it forever, so what's $150 now if I'll get to use it for 50+ years.

Any reasons for or against? Let me know.

I was gonna buy one, but none of the stores around here had one, neither would they order one in, sucks.

Personally, I think they sound terrible, and for $150 you can get much better things to dick around with.

Yeah... You could "dick" around with a hooker instead...

So is it a novelty, like a fingerpick (damn I never use those) or do you genuinely feel more complete with one?

I've still gotta get a Jamman, a volume pedal, and a blues OD pedal. This is what I get for relying on amp effects.

Built one yourself?
They sound decent, at least in my opinion...but you'll only use them for very few songs....
and 150$ is much money for 2 songs or so^^

So, save for your rig and built te talkbox yaself
