Is there a good Talk Box effect that isn't a Talk Box?

    Don't have any room for a real talk box on the pedal board. Any other effect besides a wah perhaps that can get a decent approximation. I looked into the Free Speech, but all accounts are that thing is a childs toy that can't cut it live.......

    The EHX Bassballs is very vocal-sounding. Worth a try, I think.

    You can set the vowels on the unit.
    Not perfect, but for the price you also get 7 wah sounds, a great foot controlable uni-vibe and 7 OD/distortions that are a just about OK on their own, but are very good for goosing, as well as a radiohead style filter.
