    I'm currently helping one of my students get her sound together for a retro 70s thing-Getting crunch and clean hasn't been so difficult 'cause I have the pedals and can identify the sounds-So tell me, on the Frampton Comes Alive version of "Do You Feel...", what is the guitar effect being used during the intro, after the keyboard harmony-Y'know when it modulates right before the first verse-I think the solos use it too-Also, what pedal would get me close?-The young lady is using a Les Paul Standard through a tweed Peavey of some sort-Sounds great-Please help us get that 70s arena sound that "Do You Feel.." epitomizes-Thanks...

    Do you mean the talk box?

    Big Marshall cranked up to stadium levels?

    edit: I just listened to it on youTube, sounds like a bit of Leslie speaker action in there.

    He's got all kinds of crap. There's a harmonizer on there doing an octave up during the intro and first solo, as well as a Leslie for part of it, talk box for the obvious parts, then a Leslie at the end. Bob Mayo is harmonizing with his guitar in parts too. I think you're referring to the leslie

    Leslie speaker is the effect. But I approximate using an MXR phaser.

    yup, certain phasers, uni vibe, rotosphere, certain chorus's set up just so can get close too, but I would rather have a Leslie ! My keyboard player lets me screw around with his sometimes after soundcheck, pre-gig and I never want to unplug from it after that!

    I would not attempt that song w/o an actual talkbox. It sort of defines it, doesn't it?

    Leslie..A huge part of his sound that often goes unnoticed.

    They're not actually playing the song-I just love the effect-The general consensus seems to be a leslie-The whole shebang is way early in the planning stages, and I'm trying to help assemble a small pedalboard for her-Sometimes effects make the biggest difference when doing covers-Especially 70s music-And these girls love their gadgets-Anybody got a moog for cheap???

    This does a great job in pedal format:

    I've also approximated the talkbox portion with a wah-wah pedal. Not the same, I know. But it helps me develop a good wah-wah technique.

    Totally derailment of my own thread-Didn't some Hammond organs have rotating speakers enclosed ?-My old church used to get that sound back in the day, and I always wanted to go up and whip out some G.Allman riffs...

    jeffm725-Thanks for the clip-I guess I could get pretty dang close with some dirt, humbuckers and a pedal like that-Now I'll check out the Rotovibe-Thanks to all who've made suggestions-That's why I love this place!!

    As far as talkbox goes, The TWA Little Dipper does a good job of emulating that vocal sound. Not cheap, though.

    Yes- those cabs are for those organs.

    I don't think so- that song is a badass song regardless of what effects are used on it.

    Years ago our son was convinced he couldn't play "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" without a wah. I guess I don't have that kind of sonic attachment to a song.

    He does a bit of "Do You Feel" towards the end of this demo:

    If you hear a record from the late 60s with that sound it had to be an actual Leslie.
