How to set up a talk box?

Recommended Posts

Talk Boxes are fiddly. You have to connect it between the amplifier and the speaker, rather than between the guitar and the amplifier. So your signal chain will go:

Guitar -> regular FX pedals -> amplifier -> talk box -> speaker.

Then you also, obviously, need the tube from the talk box attached to your microphone (not electrically connected, just strapped up to it on the mic stand).

Lots of people don't really like using talk boxes 'cause, well, something goes wrong and they can blow your whole rig up. And electrocute you.

If you want some real talk box inspirado though, check out the song "Jambi" by Tool.
