Overview

The Banshee brings a new twist to an outdated generation of complicated and risky talk boxes. Banshee is unique because it contains its own internal preamp, amplifier, and horn driver. You simply plug into your pedalboard and run the provided tubing up the mic stand and into your mouth. There's no risk of blowing up your favorite amp head (a possibility with talk boxes of yore). The rest is up to your own imagination as you generate incredible talking tones. A wide range of clean and dirty preamp tones may be dialed in with plenty of saturation for those who desire lots of gain. Not only does the Banshee scream in the talkbox mode, but it also includes an extra jack for hookup with an extension pedal speaker. Plugging a speaker cab into this output turns your pedal board into a perfect practice setup with enough volume to seriously crank it. Includes power supply.

I purchased the Rocktron Banshee talk box hoping to get that Peter Frampton sound. I took it out of the box an instantly i realized it was very hefty and well constructed. The manual was very easy to read with excellent illustrations to guide you through it. It took me a couple minutes and I was ready to go. I hooked it up to my Les Paul and there it was. Easy to use and has an amazing sound and capability. I would recommend this talk box to anyone who wants that far out sound without paying a ton for a Framptone talker and wants something better than the Danelectro free speech. Ive played them all and for the money, this is the box.

I got a Rocktron Banshee talk box for my birthday. After a few days of practice i could say most anything. I use it with a synthesizer, not a guitar. I didn't have the volume or gain up much when i was using it at first. So when I turned it up, it got loud one day with mild distortion and the next day it's softer (not loud enough). Bottom line: it's a great starter talkbox but it lacks good tonal quality and volume.

What a box...

By Ryan Walsh

from Saint Charles, Illinois

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

I just got this talk box for Christmas, and oh, boy, man was I excited when I opened it. When I got home, I opened it right away, and noticed it wasn't any cheap or cheaply made plastic, but hefty, metal that could take some damage. When I plugged it into my Les Paul, I was stunned. With it being my first talk box, it delivered a stunning, crisp, crunchy sound to it. You could do anything with this, you can play just like Peter Frampton, or any other rock god with this pup! I like how the box actually acts like an amp. It has a tone, gain and output knobs, and plug it right into your guitar, and start rocking. You have your very own little practice amp/talkbox right at your foot!

Very Cool

By DJ Frequency

from MI, USA

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

It's easy to set up right out of the box, and the tube isn't so large that it's too uncomfortable to use it for long periods of time. It's really fun to hook up to a synth or a guitar, in my own experience. It's nice and loud, although I didn't know that there wasn't a digital/analog output for the sound, rather a extremely audible effect that radiates from your mouth! Be prepared to setup your microphone to record the sound. It's well-made and has a good weight to it. Small enough to toss in the car and thick enough for a booming sound. 5 stars.

AWSOME!!!!!!!

By Ben

from Bethesda MD

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

When I ordered this pedal, I had very high expectations after reading many reviews and watching countless videos about it on youtube. As soon as I took it out of the box, it was sturdy and extremely easy to set up alog with my other pedals. As soon as I put the tube in my mouth, I was able to make fantastic Richie Sambora, Peter Frampton, Joe Perry, etc. sounds, even without a mic. Even with my high expectations, this is by far my favorite effect I own!

Great Product

By Mark

from Rockfall, CT

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

This is such a rare effect, but I sure wish I had gotten one a lot sooner. This Banshee works as advertised and is built like a tank. Easy to set up and easy to get those tones that talk boxes are known for.

"Wha, Wha" your way to New & Classic Rock

By Klatchband

from Wichita, Kansas

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

It's Friday afternoon and all of a sudden I get the urge to buy "more gear" (happens all the time). I walk into our local Guitar Center and ask for "Billy". Billy knows I am gear head and has previously demonstrated the Rocktron Banshee for me. The Banshee is on Sale so I don't hesitate to buy the item on the spot. I happen to be playing a gig that night so I didn't have anytime to even open the box and review the instruction manual. I get set up at the gig and I decide the "throw" the Bashee in my pedal board. I briefly review the manual, decide where in my signal chain I wanted to put the unit, hooked the the tube to Microphone/Stand and I was ready!! As soon as I heard that famous sound I was so impressed!! It was like I was in the 70's again. That night I used the Banshee on Sweet Emotion (Aerosmith) and Man in the Box (Alice in Chains). To sum up my first experience, the Rocktron Banshee sounds great, and is build like a tank! The Banshee is so easy to set up and use. The Banshee has been one of my best effect purchase in years (I have a drawer full of pedals I don't use). Kudos to Rocktron for another great product!

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

I have had this talk box for many months now. I have used this talk box live many times. The crowd gos insane when I start using it. I have never been let down by Rocktron. This Talk box is built like a tank. I was playing one night when there was a party and beer was spilt all over it. I brought it home that night thinking it wouldnt work. I plugged it in and the banshee worked better then ever! Perfect for the musican on the go! Highly recommend this product!

The Best Quality Talbox

By FenderAmericanDeluxeStrat13

from Clarkston, Michigan

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

I just got the Rocktron Banshee Talkbox, and I have to say, I am amazed with the quality, and uniqueness of the sound you can get ot of it. It is practically built like a tank in the metal casing it has, and should last a long time. The only problem is that it doesnt include a mike, so now i hav to go out and get, a mike, mixer, and PA system just to get it to pick up the sound. Overall thugh it is a great value, and one of the most unique products that you can buy.

outstanding talk box

By Izzy Dunn

from woodstock ga.

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

amazing little unit would be an understatement. My last talk box required an external am and lacked the bite that this one has. Plug n play right out of the box and has that "frampton" sound without worry of blowing up your amp when clicking it in I would recommend it to anyone looking for a talk box

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent

By Scott

from Minnesota

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

As with everyone else's comments, this is an excellent talk box. I purchased it not knowing what to expect, but wanting that "talk box sound" - especially for Bon Jovi songs. You literally plug this in, run the tube next to a microphone, step on it, and THERE IT IS!!!! Sounds great and no risk of blowing your amps! I fully recommend this to anyone.

By Matthew Braamse

from Benton Harbor MI

Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

im 13. playing with an ibanez Prestige. tube tastes like what i put in the toilet. haha. I Got it for christmas was so exited. so i went and pugled it in to my pedal board and started playing some peter frampton and alice and chains. but nothing was coming through my line 6 amp. only through the little five watt. it sounds great but im going to return it because i dont have a mic or pa system and i do need it for live use with me and my band. so im going to return it and get the danelectro free speach which is 99.00 dollars and its plug in and play nothing else needed

    Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

    I ordered the "BANSHEE TALK BOX" for my son who has been playing electric guitar for about two years and since he likes mostly classic rock, I thought this would be another gadget to enjoy and experience. He hooked it up, understood how it works and started using it with ease.
    I looked up top rock songs that use talk box and he's practicing to learn them.

    Easy Setup

    By Richard Simmons

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Rocktron Banshee Talk Box:

    This talk box is great. It is my first one, so I don't have much to compare it to. However, I can tell you that I am pleased with this one and won't need another. The setup for it is simple. All you need is a guitar and guitar cable. This thing plugs into the wall. Then you plug your guitar into this and put the tube into your mouth and go "wah wah do you feel like we do" yadda yadda. Optional is a microphone and mic amp (for live shows to be heard), and a regular guitar amp (for when you aren't using the talk box. I promise you that if you buy this, you won't be let down. It is built to last and is the only talk box you'll need. you can get the sounds of slash, peter frampton, and any other guitarists. it does everything a wah wah pedal can and more. This is a must have for guitarists everywhere.
