Rocktron Banshee Talkbox

Talkbox

You don't often notice this effect since it's so obvious, but if you really know how to use it (for which you need a bit of practice), you can really knock people off their feet.

Examples, please? David Gilmour/Pink Floyd: Pigs, Keep Talking; Scorpions: The Zoo; Bon Jovi: Living On A Prayer, It's My Life

The Rocktron Banshee is really a luxury unit. A separate pre- and power-amplifier and an electro voice driver are on board and deliver the unit's perfect sound (in gain, tone and level). No more risk (as with conventional devices) of blowing your favourite amp. And via an additional output, you can control a separate speaker, meaning the unit can even be used as a practice amp.

  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 216 x 115 x 65 mm

Bon Jovi

floydstratman, 04.05.2017
If you want that Bon Jovi sound, Dave Gilmour or Rory Gallagher then you've got to et yourself one of these. All the benefits of the old Heil Talkbox but without blowing up your amp. This is a micro amp with a mini speaker that sends the sound up through the pipe to your mouth to shape the sound into your microphone. Lots of tone shaping and volume to hand. It's great!

Much More Than I Hoped For

04.01.2017
I wanted a Talkbox for years. I just never liked the idea of the original type for a couple of reasons.

1. The old ones go between your amplifier and the cabinet. If the bypass switch fails, you can damage the output transformer in the amp.
2. My amp is 70 Watts RMS. The Banshee is only 5 watts. I would much rather have 5 watts in my mouth than 70 watts.

I was a bit worried that the Banshee might not have that authentic talkbox sound. But as soon as I plugged in, it sounded perfect straight out of the box. Another great feature the Banshee has is the ability to practice without an amplifier, as it has its own 5 watt amp built right inside.

It looks great, and is built solidly. The hose is easy to clean, and I recommend cleaning it after every use. :) I like that it has outstanding overdrive, that it has a tone knob, and most importantly that it has an output volume.

Fantastic Value For Money!
