    Does the Heil talk box work with bass?
     
  2. I have a Dean Markley Talk Box 100 (it has an EV driver in it) that is essentially the same thing and it works fine. There are a couple of things to keep in mind, you will need an amplifier power source to drive what is essentially a horn driver fed into the tube that goes in your mouth to do the verbalizations. Since it is a horn driver it is not gonna put up with the 200-400 watts you probably drive your bass cabs with, I use a GK MLS120 that ususlly drives an EV 1x12L. You will also need a good microphone to get the sound to the PA, I use a SM57. They are pretty durable provided you don't drive them too hard, but get a couple of spare diaphrams to have around just in case. You will also need 2 good quality speaker cables the right length, 1 goes from the amp to the talk box and 1 more to go from the talk box to the speaker cab.
