Electro-Harmonix Talking Pedal
The new Talking Pedal is designed to bring vocal expression to the guitar player (no tubes required).
The pedal uses the design of EHX’s Next Step Effects and is the second pedal to be released in the line.
As with the Crying Tone Wah, the Talking Pedal is free of moving parts including potentiometers and switches that can wear out and need replacing. The pedal also features the same chassis for control and a bypass that is described as completely silent.
Similarly to a wah, the Talking Pedal is a rocking filter-type pedal, but the similarities end there. The tone of the pedal is said to be unlike any traditional wah because it passes the guitar signal through 2 bandpass filters that gives the tone a male vocal quality and creates a selection of vowel-like sounds.
Additionally, a fixed fuzz circuit can be blended in to the players taste with a scroll wheel located on the side of the pedal.
Pricing & Availability:
The Talking Pedal comes equipped with a 9 volt battery (accepts optional AC adapter) and carries a U.S. List Price of $121.20.
