Heil Sound Talk Box
The Heil Sound Talk Box is an effect pedal that allows you use your guitar and voice as a talk box. It merely has a switch to turn it on and off and a tube that you run to your mouth. It has a 1/4 inch input and output and is powered by the power supply made for it. It is not rackable, as it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

The configuration isn't as easy as setting up a normal guitar effect pedal, as you must set it up with a microphone for your the talk portion of the unit, but once you get it set up it is ready to go whenever you need it and works great. There are no controls because you control the filter of the sound with your mouth. The manual is definitely complete and helpful when setting this pedal up.

SOUND QUALITY

The talk box effect on the Heil is absolutely awesome. It has a clean signal and you know how cool a talk box effect is if you have ever heard one. I have only used this pedal with guitar, but you can use it with a keyboard or bass guitar as well. The talk box sound was made famous by Peter Frampton, but there are ton of different ways to use this and countless guitars have put their own spin on the talk box and is a useful tool all across the board in terms of applications.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Heil Talk Box for about three years and it is definitely the best talk box I have ever used. It always works without problems and has a great sound quality to it. I have tried to make my own talk box, but this works way better than anything I could ever make, even though talk boxes are relatively simple to make. The price isn't that cheap, but is probably priced right considering it will last a while and is a top quality piece of equipment. I highly recommend the Heil Talk Box to all interested in picking up an effect of this kind.

Heil Sound Talk Box
Well, it's a speaker in a metal box. An input, output, pipe and it cost € 180 in! So for what it is, and although it's expensive! Some people make the way!

UTILIZATION

Major weakness of the talk box, that's why I'll put 1 / 10! yes yes I'm serious. Already it has to be connected with two jacks HP. Good is not what it cost, but already it's starting to piss off when not. Then, and here's the most annoying, the dunlop talk box from home was primarily intended for owners of amp head and cabinet. It connects between the two ... Well, I have no statistics, but already around me, there is a large majority to use combos. So if you have a combo, there are three solutions: either we have two exits behind HP (which is my case on Peavy Valvestate 212) and here we are saved because you have to plug the entrance to the talk box on a HP output the amp, then buy a small adapter to connect the HP jack that comes from the speaker jack talbox in which the base is connected to one of the two outputs of the amplifier. And that's great, it works nickel. Otherwise (solution 2) you have to weld and holes to install these females entered and then create two Output hp. It's a bit shit for those who do not have expertise in electronics, as I do. Solution 3 have a second amp or Bafle, and therefore more investment, and an amp and more to lug around in concert, often for 2-3 pieces max. Not only the talkbox is expensive but it is more complicated to use.
Another small point a little boring, well it is used with a microphone plugged into a PA or other ... (Yes the sound comes out of the pipe) So if there's cool, otherwise it is not even bother to buy it, because we hear nothing. After I highly recommend to use a microphone like the Shure SM 57 to get to put it well in the mouth with the hose and having an audio output at the correct volume for ... the output volume is not super high. Last thing, once the pipe in the mouth, it is very difficult to play by watching his sleeve! And I also believe that extensive use should be quite harmful to the teeth and more.

SOUND QUALITY

There are two interests to have a talk box, playing with a pipe in his mouth and then impress people who wonder what are we doing! and then his cool that spring. While I do not use as few pieces, but hey it's always very fun to play with.

OVERALL OPINION

Finally, when I bought it, I did not know that its use would be as complex. And when I look at the number of songs that I play with, I think it's a bit of luxury to have purchased. I got a little mad because I'm a fan of Slash, Joe Perry, I also like Frampton. But maybe if it again, I do not buy it. And yes it takes up space, does not fit in my suitcase because I have to plug it in parallel, so it makes me spend two more jacks in my effects and amp, the song I end up with a 57 sm , so that initially I used it to dub the sound on the amp, as a result I am using the SM 58 (for singing) to dub the amp! short is a lot of galleys and change for a relatively low use ... I regret it yet, but it may come ...

It's simple: a big heavy box, a pipe and connections ...

The only problem of the talk box is that you have two amps, one for the talk and one for his guitar.

UTILIZATION

It's simple, no buttons;) Apart from the connections, the rest is no problem, the only challenge is how to play and talk with the pipe in his mouth to get sounds nice.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are nice but rev limits. It is about the image of his guitar Peter Frampton or Joe Perry or Slash ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for years ... in fact I have for years but I use it soon. This effect is nice but so boring and typical set up that will not go out often of his bote!

The report qualitprix is ​​average, it is a fact that much more ncessite microphone and amplifier supplmentaire scne ... Fun to play on with the public but from a, aa little intrt especially that there is no rglage possible.

I have been offered so I did not complain but I think I would not have bought.

I talk box HEIL SOUND + DX100
I would like you to have the sound of the last DAX RIDERS slamming like the old TROUTMAN

Unfortunately, if the sound is the voice is not intelligible output ...

should I place a voice channel output (I have not and I thought the new APEX 230)
is it still placing an output amplifier while the sound is already well amplified,
or is he just playing the synth as a god (not my case) to accompany each syllable

thank you for your advice;-)

C talkbox the box is the bomb but it hurts the teeth ..
You need just one amp (amplifier hifi personal Peraves all do) and you plug the amp the sound source (synth output dedicates sound card etc. ..) and a speaker output the branches of the amp you talk box.

UTILIZATION

The real synth for sound ZAPP is the DX100, but must find it ....
Otherwise an FM7 is the case with training ...
But if anyone knows of good sources of sound, let me know!

SOUND QUALITY

It dpend of your mouth ...
