Hey, I'm looking to purchase a Talk Box. I'm new to these, so I want to know what I'm in for. I understand the Dunlop Heil is a great one, but the problem is you need a sperate speaker and stuff. So please refrain from recommending that one. The other 3 I'm looking at are the Rocktron Banshee 1 and 2 and the Danelectro Free Speech.

Any thing you guys can tell me? Warnings, praises?

-Thanks

The Danelectro one is pretty cheap.
Think about how much you would actually use a talk box, think about how many songs would actually feature the effect, considering how impractical it is to set up and everything just to perform one song on stage with it.

The Dano is the most sensible option in my opinion. Unless you have a lot of money to spare, or you're a professional musician.

Just my opinion. I am in no way saying that you'll like the sound of that one better or anything.

jsut so you know with a talk box no sound comes out of your amp. it all comes out of your mouth so for it to be loud(enough for band practice or a gig or something) you HAVE to have a mic


ive heard good things about the rocktron banshee 2, no chance of blowing up your head apperently

i think you need a mic and p.a. system for the sound to come out

The Rocktron Banshee I doesn't need a pa/mic setup. All reviews I've seen of it have been pretty decent and the price doesn't suck.

The three I listed, I was under the impression they didn't need mics or a separate PA. The Heil I know needs it. But I'll do more research into the others. Thanks!
