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.

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!

Authentic talkbox experience

Harry A, 04.08.2018
The Banshee is a particularly accessible talkbox, requiring no external amp or equipment other than a tone source (I use it with a synthesizer).

To perform talkbox vocals intelligibly requires a tremendous amount of practice, but it is a fun learning process. The build quality on the Banshee is top rate, I have no complaints to make. The rather large AC adapter is a bit unwieldy but otherwise it's an elegantly simple design.

The only thing that bothers me with the Banshee is the large diameter tube which it comes with. I'm looking into getting a smaller diameter one as otherwise it tends to make my mouth hurt after using it for a while.
