now someone told me that with the danelectro 'free speech' talkbox i didnt need a mic. i want to know if this is also true of the j. dunlop talkbox. or if there is a difference between one with and one without. i really cant see any practical difference between having a mic stuck next to the tube and not. also, i didnt think you had to make any noise with the tube to make the effect, so y'know... ive been wrong about this stuff in the past, so anyone who knows please tell me. cheers all.
You need a mic for any talk box. The Dan. talk box comes with these crappy mini mics that are attached to the tube (you can take them off and use your own mic and mic it properly.)
