The Heil Talk Box lets you recreate the "talking guitar" sounds popularized by Peter Frampton, Joe Walsh, Slash, Alice In Chains, Aerosmith ,and many others.
The Long Story
This unique and famous effect was popularized by Peter Frampton, Joe Walsh, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, and others. The sturdy metal casing houses a phenolic diaphragm speaker, powered by your amplifier's external speaker jack. (Place it in line with your external speaker, which can remain connected.) A 6-1/2 foot surgical tube carries the diaphragm speaker's sound to your mouth. The tube end is placed near a vocal mic. By shaping sounds with your mouth, you immediately achieve the "talking" guitar sounds that you've heard on so many hits. Powered by your amplifier's external speaker jack.
