Awesome and easy to use

I have used a Heil Talk Box for decades. It started getting tempermental on me so I decided to give the MXR a shot. It is easier to hook up, sounds great and has a light to let you know it is on and you can adjust tone, volume and gain. It sounds awesome and is light years ahead of the original Talk Box. Thank you MXR and Sweetwater for the fast delivery.

Way too much fun

This talkbox is incredible. The tone and gain controls give you extensive control over your tone. It overall is just so fun and wilk be an extremely fun journey to sound like zapp and roger

Better than the Original

I have used a Heil Talk Box for decades. Recently I have been playing in smaller venues where I can not take two amps. However I have still gotten request to play "Frampton Songs" where I need a talk box. So I thought I would give the MXR Talk Box a try. Wow , it is excellent easier to set up and use than the original and it sound great. I will use it now at larger venues as well. Thanks MXR for making an awesome product.

24 KARAT Magic

No. This won't make you sound exactly like that, but if you spend time on multiple tracks and producing it, then, yes, it can be done. Live, this takes time to learn, it is not as easy as it looks, and you have to think about your word choice. That said, WOW what a great tool. Best sound to pipe through it is the basic saw wave (I use TAL's virtual Juno 60, sounds great!). I had to learn not to turn it up so much that more than one note played would distort. Also, the note separation is important, the highest note being the one you want to express the most, the 24 Karat sound is accomplished with the harmonies happening on the notes below the melody. I was surprised how big it was, actually, and I place it where I can adjust it live. Great for studio use, even to have in the background (subtly) to give electronic music a cool sound. Anyway, nice addition, and I don't see it gathering dust as some other purchases have.

Exactly what I wanted

I was thinking a lot about which talk box to get, Now that I got the MXR I don't regret it. It sounds amazing and the pedal is solid, I mean really solid! Like a tank. The only con there is here, is the size and and weight. But all talk box are like that. I would recommend to anyone who want that organic robotic sound.
