Overview

The Talk Box is a classic effect-you can hear it on some of the greatest songs ever recorded, across genres and time, from funk and '70s rock to hard rock and metal. Its unique, highly expressive character is instantly recognizable. The MXR team has fine-tuned the Talk Box for modern gigging convenience and tone sculpting while maintaining the unmistakable sonic character that made the effect legendary. With its own amp and speaker driver, the MXR Talk Box is compact and pedal board-friendly-you don't have to lug around a separate rig or patch into your amp's speaker output. And with Volume, Tone and Gain controls, you can shape and add texture to your Talk Box voice for maximum impact. Like all MXR pedals, the MXR Talk Box is built into a sturdy, road-ready housing to endure the rigors of the road. Includes an 18-volt power supply, an 8' surgical tube and a mic stand clip.

          I didn't expect it to be heavy and a little large than a common guitar pedal but that didn't take any of the credit this gear has. Awesome sound, loud and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. Really worth it!

          I had another Talk Box before this and lets day it broke, I'll leave it at that. This product is great, better construction, great sound, etc.

            Comments about MXR M222 Talk Box:

            I am a stickler for authenticity. It's an obsession, actually. I'll search far and wide to get the same guitar, slide, stomp box, pick, etc. that the artist used. So when I found out that Frampton and Walsh used the Heil talk box, I had to get one myself.

            What I didn't know, was that the Heil was trailing edge technology. It was the prototype back in the day, and difficult to work with. Heavy, cumbersome, required a lot of cables, and if you hooked it up wrong, you could blow your amp.

            So I finally decided to try the MXR. It is perfect. Compact, easy to use right out of the box, fits on my pedal board, and most importantly, sounds EXACTLY like the Heil. Plus, there is no chance of damaging my amp.

            If you ever wanted to try a talk box, this is it. I'm glad I have the Heil for nostalgic reasons, but I'll probably never use it again. The MXR is definitely the way to go.

            A Good Box, Just Not For Me

            Best Uses

              Comments about MXR M222 Talk Box:

              I bought this talk box hoping to recreate the sounds of Peter Frampton, Bon Jovi, and more. It seems like it could be great for certain genres, but if you're looking for the high levels of crunch that Richie Sambora uses live, then this is not the unit for you. I've tried heavy distortion, high gain, and more, and it just wimps out. Also, the mouth tube is this behemoth of plastic that is very awkward to use. Some talk boxes have a more user friendly tube that is a bit smaller, but this is more like having PVC pipe in your face. I'd say get the Rocktron Banshee or the Dunlop Heil, both of which I have gigged on, and are much better for what I use them for. I still think for calmer songs without a lot of crunch, this box could have some use, it's just not for me.

                I've wanted a talk box for years. Perfect for sounds reminiscent of Alice and Chains, Frampton, but I like to add it to some of Jimi's stuff too, sounds great on Voodoo Chile'. Very impressed so far.

                MXR nailed it !

                Comments about MXR M222 Talk Box:

                I boulght the heil talk box in december not knowing about these. It turned out, you need another rig to hook it it up. Its basicaly a speaker cabinet. Worked awsome but hated the second amp. The danalectro had an exelent concept with mic input to amp direct ( first of its kind )But is very underpowered.Basicaly a toy.I returned it.The banshee has poor construction, a folded over piece of aluminum with steel sides crudley bolted on, leaking sound evrywhere. I purchased the mxr today and just tested it..... It has PLENTY of volume,, ( 18 volt power )I only needed 4 on the volume,, however if you wish you con rattle your teeth ( no joke )with this bad boy !! It has a VERY solid , heavy, and compact design, taking a minamal amount of space for such a great effect,also the instructions are very helpfull in breaking down the alphabet into different categories, and explainig how to pronounce them correctly, resulting in true guitar speach.The heil has an light thing you screw on,, yet there is no light in the unit???? Didnt make sense tome, maybe i didnt buy the light, or wire it in ? However, turn the mxr on, the led comes on and you know your hot.So basicaly,, its the real deal with a coulple of improvements,the volume, tone, and gain controlls reaaly expand upon the original concept, no amp needed, led refenc light for operation, very rugged enclosed constuction,and well... it just looks cool as ,,, you know. Hope this helps !

                    Never used a talk box before but loved the sound, and the time was right so I got one. Right out of the box, the unit was clean, and looked to be fully functional. After hooking the unit up I was blown away!!

                    The sounds you get from this are very fun, and the signal coming out of the tube is loud enough where you don't need a mic, if your at home, or jamming.

                    The unit is solid, and I'm glad I finally picked one up. I would recommend the MXR Talkbox to anyone looking to have some fun.
