Dan talk box

By Charie Gross

from olmsted falls ohio

Comments about Danelectro Free Speech Talk Box:

I bought this box because it was one of the cheaper ones on the market. Ive built my own in the past but buying one is way more practical. Basically if you buy one, dont even bother using the cheap little mics it comes with. Just use it with a real mic through a PA or if you have a small separate amp at home. Ive used it live, but they have to turn the mics up really loud because the box is pretty quiet. Its a good quality built pedal and has an awesome paint job. But if youre gonna play it live, dont expect much. Its pretty quiet but you still hear it and people dig it.

Not a fan

By Brock

from Crescent City, Florida

Comments about Danelectro Free Speech Talk Box:

In my personal opinion, this pedal is terrible. The microphones on the sides are placed so that the shape of your mouth echoes back the send from the pedal that comes out through the tube (if you're following me here). Basically, it's not a direct signal into your amp - it picks it up via microphones. If you are to talk through it, your voice is usually louder than the guitar going though the amp, since if you have your mouth closed just a little to much, you won't hear your guitar through your amp. This isn't the way that all talkboxes work from what I've heard (apparently Digitech's Talker has a more 'direct' approach). I would recommend getting this pedal only if you realize it's just a toy, and don't plan on gigging or recording with it.

Not bad

By Steve

from NJ

Comments about Danelectro Free Speech Talk Box:

I wouldn't recommend getting the Dan. talk box if you play live, it's not loud enough. You have to put the mini mics as close to the end of the tube as possible to pickup the sound. I've had the Rocktron Banshee as well, big difference, but I kept the Dan. because I rarely use a talk box, if I do, it's just to play around with, no live use. You can't expect much volume if you look at it, pretty small unit for a talk box. It's not too bad if you mic it properly, I'm talking about using a different mic and sending it to the PA or other amp. No other talk boxes are like the Dan. though, they all require mic'ing (obviously), but the Dan. you can use their stock mics and truly plug and play. On a side note, this goes for all talk boxes: clean the tube after each use.

Disapointing Purchase

By Shamrocker123

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Danelectro Free Speech Talk Box:

I had my hopes high when I bought the Danelectro Free Speech Talk Box. Unfortunately I was disapointed with the results. The concept of the pedal is good in nature, but in reality it is really impractical for any type of live show. Don't get me wrong, its really fun to mess around with at home, but on stage its pretty much a paperweight. The problem with the pedal is its really quiet output. Once its switched on it hushes your signal so much (probably due to weak microphones) that unless you have it plugged into a seperate amplifier you really cant hear it. If this is your ONLY effect then I guess it would work ok, but if you are like me and utilize a variety of effects at once its not worth buying. On the other hand, the Helix Talk Box (the original)works supurb (my lead guitarst uses one of those). It does have a cool paint job though.
