HOW TO – build a talk box

Instr Talkbox

For those unfamiliar – a talk box device allows the user to modulate an instrument’s waveform by changing the shape of their own mouth (see the oft-cited “Do You Feel Like We Do” by Frampton)

Though many examples can be found on the ‘nets, this instructable shows a nice straightforward method for building your own talk box. It’s a fun project that asks relatively little in way of materials and delivers much in fun and musical possibility. Try experimenting with different speakers and creative enclosures to develop a signature design – Build a Talk box
