    MY guitarist has the Banshee, I tried it once thru my bass, and it works and all, but it cuts the lows dramatically. Plus, in order to be effective "bass", it would have to be mixed just right with the PA. I would say a talkbox on bass is only if u really into weird goofy effects
  2. even on guitar they sound thin, so on bass it would sound, well, like a tuned down guitar through a talk box!

    No bass whatsoever. You'd have to do something to retain the low frequencies like a split and mix type of affair. But, given the fact that the origianl types operate between your amp and speakers, that would proved kinda hard to do.
