Classic Talk Box with Modern Reliability
Bringing a cool, new twist to the outdated generation of complicated and risky talk boxes, the Banshee 2 gives classic rock touches to the 90's players. Although "talk boxes" have been used in the making of hit music (Aerosmith, Frampton, Joe Walsh, etc.) for years, many guitar players simply have not tried them because of their complicated and potentially damaging setup. Leave it to the stomp box gurus at Rocktron. The Banshee 2 rocks, simply and safely. What makes the Banshee 2 so unique is that it contains its own internal preamp, amplifier, and horn driver. You simply plug into the Banshee 2 like you would any common stomp box, and run the provided "tubing" up the mic stand and into your mouth. The rest is up to your own imagination as you get the most incredible sounds from your instrument. And no more risk of blowing up your favorite amp head, (always a possibility with talk boxes of old).
Get More with the New Effects Loop
The talk box is an incredible effect on its own, but think about tacking on your favorite delay or distortion pedal - or maybe you want to try your wah, or flanger for some seriously singing tones. Whatever arsenal of effects you imagine, try them with the Banshee 2 - it features a new effects loop so you can add whatever wild new sounds you want in front of it, or you can put it through your guitar signal path at the same time!
Tweakable Preamp Section for Killer Results
The Banshee's preamp section features controls for gain, tone, and output level. A wide range of clean and dirty preamp tones may be dialed in with plenty of saturation for those who desire lots of gain. Guitar World Magazine wrote: "The Banshee's high-gain preamp and focused tone control allow for excellent enunciation and sustain. With minimal practice, I was able to create clear words and open vowels, and I could readily see how anyone could become addicted to this effect."
