    Default MXR M222 Talk Box

    I have always been a fan of the talk box so I dived in with both feet and picked up a MXR M222 Talk Box. I just took it out of the box and plan on taking it for a run around the block when the house is empty tomorrow. At first blush it is a bit bigger than I expected (I should have looked at the specs). Does any one have any tips or trick for using one of these babies? I figure it will be like using a wah-wah but using your vocal chords instead of your foot.

    its cool how the m222 has its own amp and driver. I didn't know they made one like that.

    The amp sounds great. The overdrive/gain is thick and it is nice to be able to control the tone. The harmonics and response is very "British" like. So far I am having a blast with it and I haven't even hooked it up to a PA or amp yet. I am thinking of running it with my Fender Excelsior through the mic input.

    Is this similar to the Rocktron Banshee in that it has it's own amp and doesn't have to be run between amp and speaker?

    It has its own amp but the banshee has a mic in it also. The Banshee was prone to feedback and had a horrible tone. The M222 has to be used with a mic and PA but sounds 10x better than the banshee or maybe even the Heil. The gain and tone controls are a big plus.

    So I sold my MXR M222 about 4 years ago and now I need a talkbox again because the band is playing Sweet Emotion. I can do it with a wah and it sounds "OK" but I am a hardcore Aerosmith fan and want to do the song justice. Lesson learned if you are not using a piece of gear pack it up nicely and put it in the basement. The new MXR M222 is on the way.

    Yep never should have sold it. Sweet Emotion sounded great you couldn't wipe the smile off my bandmates faces. I also used it on Paint it Black for the sitar part and it was awesome. I was able to control that sitar type vibrato manually. Was pretty cool.
