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.
Music background: Working musician, home studio for hobby and some light work.

MXR M222 Talk Box

It's worth a try. Fun to play with. You'll be happier if you use an EQ pedal directly before the M222 in the signal chain in order to get the most out of the M222. Guitars / Instruments with higher output (for example a Humbucker LP type of guitar) will tend to push this pedal hard to the point where it just does not sound pleasing anymore in the high frequency range. The M222 is best utilized with as few effects before it as possible (except the EQ).

Mxr talk box

Being a long time user of the rocktron banshee I found the pedal to take up a lot of space on my pedalboard. The Mxr fits nicely on my board. Great success! But it lacks the tone control of the banshee . On the plus side it has more volume which is great when your house sound is lacking a good monitor system.looks cool and built very solid.the tube clip eliminated the need for duct tape and makes for easy adjusting
