    Pretty much any given Justin Chancellor (from Tool) line features some kind of effect. Not all, but quite a lot.

    the talkbox I used didn't sound that great with my bass/entire setup

    it was the rocktron one

    but if you like talkbox lines learn some bon jovi, their bassist uses it on at least 2 songs
