    Default Help with Effect I.D. ?

    I'm looking for the effect unit used by Sambora , Frampton etc. Ya know , the one with the tube that goes in your mouth. Kinda like a guitar synth type of thing !

    Problem is , I don't know what it's called , who makes them , and I don't know anyone who has ever used one ! I keep wanting to call it a voice box , but when I do searches , I don't get anything even remotely like what I'm looking for ! Do they even make these things anymore ?

    Any of you guys have any experience with them and can help me out ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Do a Google search under "talk box"...you'll get a variety of sources!

    Little trivia, but Ed used one too. Apparently his mouth was too small for the tube though. *insert sick joke here*

    But I believe he used it on Can't Get This Stuff No More.

    Matt Bruck did the mouth part. Read that in an interview somewhere.

    My buddy uses one in his band. As I understand it, you need two amps to use it properly. One amp is dedicated to the talk box, and the other is for your regular guitar sound.
