Talk box: http://youtube.com/watch?v=hlTIWWsicAE&search=frampton (at about 2 minutes the badass talkbox guitar solo comes in )

Its basically a speaker in a box, with a tube that you put in your mouth and it then projects the sound into there and by shaping your mouth in different ways you get different vowel like effects (the sound goes out of your mouth and into the microphone, not back down the tube into your guitar amp though I think Danelectro have one that lets you do that)
The thing also shakes up your teeth quiet a bit

Ahh the talkbox, what a fine instrument. Did Frampton create it? Or have it made for him?


from Wikipedia

The Talk Box was invented by Bob Heil of Heil Sound in 1971 for Joe Walsh to play "Rocky Mountain Way" live.

and 2 years later Heil gave one to Frampton as a christmas present

I thought Jeff Beck invented it. Wikipedia is usually wrong

No, I'm actually pretty sure that Seljer is right, considering that it's called a HEIL talk box

Frampton had his own model made for him.

EDIT: speaking of Peter Frampton, I just bought 4 tickets to see him in a VERY small venue. 3rd row loge
How to achieve Frank Zappa's guitar tone:

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
