I have a funny feeling that this give away is going to get a few people excited. We just came off of a hot Mojo Hand FX give away, and now we’re jumping into this great one. We’re talking about the Electro-Harmonix Talking Pedal. We demo’d this a little while back – “Electro-Harmonix Talking Pedal Demo“. The Talking Pedal is interesting pedal for sure, and will be a great addition to any pedal line.
For those of you not familiar with the Talking Pedal, first off, it’s not a wah pedal. It’s a pedal that simulates vowels and is very similar to the classic talk box, but is controlled via the foot. This pedal also has a ‘fuzz’ option so you can dirty up the tone for an additional effect. This is also uses a new style of enclosure that has no moving parts. Very cool. It’s all based on proximity.
Here is the official description via EHX:
The Talking Pedal brings vocal expression to the guitar player and uses the proprietary design shared by all of EHX’s Next Step Effects.
It features the same smooth rocking chassis that’s super rugged and delivers lightning fast control. Bypass switching is completely silent. The Talking Pedal is also free of the moving parts that plague other pedals, parts that wear out and require replacement.
Like a wah wah, the Talking Pedal is a rocking filter-type pedal, but the similarities end there. The tone of the pedal is unlike a traditional wah’s because it passes the guitar signal through two bandpass filters that give the tone a male vocal quality and create a selection of vowel-like sounds.
A specially designed, fixed, fuzz circuit can be blended in with a scroll wheel located on the side of the pedal. This enhances the definition of the effect and adds growl and grind to the pedal.
With its state-of-the-art design and unique sound, the Talking Pedal will inspire musicians with tones worth talking about.
I want to take a moment, and thank the awesome guys at Electro-Harmonix for sending this unit to us and letting a lucky EffectsBay.com reader walk away with a cool pedal!
This pedal sells for $93.00, so this is a great give away on it’s own, but I’m also going to sweeten the deal. I started a little cable biz a little while ago called Rattlesnake Cable Company, and I’ll throw in a bonus prize as well (if you like Rattlesnake Cables on Facebook). The bonus prize is a 20′ Standard Cable in Dirty Tweed with Straight to Straight Amphenol Plugs (normally $65)!
I’m going to select one random entry on October 4th. I will email that random entry asking for the answer to the question listed below. They will have 24 hours to respond with the answer. If the 24 hours passes and I don’t hear from that finalist, I will select a new random entry and repeat the process until I receive confirmation from the winner. This is open to everyone. Yes, that means international! Also, one entry per person. Please read that last sentence again… “one” “entry” “per” “person”.
The submission form will be open until October 4th (Friday) 2PM MST.
On top of that, like I mentioned above, if you’re the winner and you also like Rattlesnake Cables on Facebook, I’ll throw in the cable as well.
So, it’s pretty much a no-brainer to like Rattlesnake Cables on Facebook! Just click the ‘like’ below.
So the question is…. “What pedal on your board are you itching to replace? And why?”
