The Talking Pedal by EHX – A Review

Ever want to create those awesome talk box tones with your guitar without having to shove a plastic tube in your face-hole? Well, now you can. Introducing the Talking Pedal from Electro-Harmonix.

If you remember, a while back I reviewed the Crying Tone pedal also from EHX, which is the first wah pedal of its kind to use absolutely no moving parts. The Talking Pedal uses the same innovative design which means there are no potentiometers and no switches that could possibly wear out over time.

It’s unique filter circuit passes the guitar signal through not one, but two bandpass filters which produces a wide variety of vocal-like vowel sounds. The Talking Pedal’s circuitry is completed with the addition of a fuzz-distortion effect that can be dialed in on the side of the pedal from a scale of 1-10.

The Talking Pedal can get its power either from a 9-volt battery or a or a standard 9-volt DC adapter and can be calibrated for use on slanted surfaces.
