I want my guitar to sound like this though my rocktron banshee. Sadly it doesnt sound nearly as clean.


Without hearing your setup, this will be speculation, but one of the things you notice from Peter Frampton's setup is a very clean, undistorted guitar sound, with only a little gain/overdrive.

Are you using too much distortion? That's one of the mistakes people tend to make when using voice boxes.

The other thing that is useful is to cut a bunch of your bass out, and turn off any reverb.

  • ok. the gain needs to be dead zero. that makes it way quieter but cleaner. Now I just need to figure out his other effects. Whats in there other than reverb? – Chet Mar 12 '15 at 3:07
  • Chet - see my first sentence. On my setup I can get a very similar sound with just that. You need to give us more info about your setup. – Doktor Mayhem Mar 12 '15 at 7:35
  • All I have right now is a rocktron banshee 2 talk box with a guitar -- no effects. I took the gain all the way down and it sounds much closer. But he's got a very unique sound that I'm trying to match and I seems like he has some effects that I can't figure out off the top of my head. – Chet Mar 12 '15 at 21:41
