New Music Gear Monday: EH Talking Pedal

Here's a guitar product that came out at Summer NAMM that I managed to miss. Remember the Talk Box that Joe Walsh ("Rocky Mountain Way"), Peter Frampton ("Show Me The Way") and Aerosmith ("Sweet Emotion") used on their hits in the 70's? While it was pretty cool, one of the problems was that you needed a separate amplifier, not to mention a decidedly unsanitary plastic tube in your mouth in order to play it. Now Electro-Harmonix has released a unique version of the Talk Box called the Talking Pedal that provides the same effect without having to resort to the separate amp and mouth tube.

EH released a Talking Machine pedal about a year ago that provided the same effect automatically depending upon your playing dynamics, but the the Talking Pedal looks to be much more expressive in a similar way to the real thing.

Here's a video of the Talking Machine pedal. It's pretty authentic sounding. The Talking Pedal can be found for less than $100.
