Banshee Talkbox

Leave it to the stomp box gurus at Rocktron. The Banshee rocks, simply and safely. What makes the Banshee so unique is that it contains its own internal preamp, amplifier, and horn driver. You simply plug into the Banshee like you would any common stomp box, and run the provided "tubing" up the mic stand and into your mouth. The rest is up to your own imagination as you get the most incredible sounds from your instrument. And no more risk of blowing up your favorite amp head, (always a possibility with talk boxes of old).
The Banshee's preamp section features controls for gain, tone, and output level. A wide range of clean and dirty preamp tones may be dialed in with plenty of saturation for those who desire lots of gain. Guitar World Magazine wrote: "The Banshee's high-gain preamp and focused tone control allow for excellent enunciation and sustain. With minimal practice, I was able to create clear words and open vowels, and I could readily see how anyone could become addicted to this effect." Not only does the Banshee scream in the talkbox mode, but Rocktron has also included an extra jack for hookup with an extension pedal speaker. Plugging a speaker cabinet to this output turns your pedal board into a perfect practice setup with enough volume to do some pretty serious cranking! Get your hands on the most unique product in years and let your creative juices flow! Or as Guitar World Magazine put it: "With a simple design and arena-worthy performance at a cool price, this Banshee is sure to send you screaming into the night.

A truly fun toy!

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

I always liked talk box stuff (Gilmour, Frampton, Adam Jones' solo in Jambi, Perry) but had heard how much of a hassle it was to set it up. You needed 2 amps and sometimes the talk box would blow up your amp. Then I saw this thing. It's so cool!!
Just plug in and play. If you're by yourself you don't need a PA to hear it - it's plenty loud on its own plus the sound is in your mouth! No problem hearing it. Of course with a band you'll need a PA to hear it. When I first got it I was making all of the sound in my mouth. I discovered if you open up (and say ahh like the doctor asks) and let the sound resonate in your throat then that is the classic sound you hear on famous recordings. Lots of experimenting with this pedal and it's all fun too!
The controls are basic and easy to get the right sound without any hassle. The trickiest thing is learning exactly how and where on the mic to mount the tube for the most comfort and best sound. It comes with a velcro strap for mounting and I've found that to be adequate, especially for gigs where set up/tear down need to happen quickly.
I think this thing is great and I'm happy that I bought one.

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

When I first bought this pedal, I had gotten a lot of feedback from my friends saying that you won't really need it for playing many of the various shows that you play. However i bought it anyway and i haven't been able to put it down. Guitar technology at its purest form. Great Fun!

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

This is incredible! I was able to recreate Frampton sounds after only minutes of practice. I had no problems with the setup either. You will be very happy with this product. You can either talk or create cool throaty sounds with this incredible Rocktron product. If you have been considering buying this think no more. You won't be disappointed with this very cool talkbox.
