Is that Bass Talk Box?? Joe Walsh - "Rivers (of the hidden funk)", from the album "There Goes The Neighborhood"
I just picked up a rocktron talk box for my guitar and was shocked to hear what I think is lightly mixed in talkbox on the bass guitar while the main bass sound is clearly the standard tone. Or else Joe went in after and doubled the bass line on talkbox guitar (almost sounds like that now that I listen closely to the bass fills starting almost 3 minutes into the tune).
The talkbox is very quiet compared to the bass itself.
What do you guys think?
I want to try it mixed in with my normal bass sound now LoL. I guess to try it I should DI my bass to my board so I can have a good dry tone and then run out of the DI 1/4 into the talk box. Could be interesting... could be terrible...
Anyone done this? Anyone paid attention to this song before?
