it basically uses a horn to shove all the high frequencies up a tube and into your mouth, then that is picked up with a microphone. Bass frequencies won't be reproduced by the horn.

I've often wondered if making a talkbox with a bigger driver would work, but as far as I can figure, it would just make the talkbox nearly impossible to use. Too bad.

Sounds to me like an excuse.

I used a guitar wah with my bass before. It could play the D and G strings pretty well, but when I went to E it didn't pick up.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

have no fear, i have one right here:

But yeah, this is about a talk box, and guitar wahs usually work on basses anyway, they just cut out the lows a bit too much for my liking
