Bob Heil is perhaps known best for developing the Talk Box, the renowned device that has been used by rock guitarists for decades to produce a variety of unique sounds. But you might be surprised to learn that the Talk Box didn’t originate in a recording studio or electronics shop.
In this episode, Bob shares the entire history of the famous Talk Box, which has been featured in music by Peter Frampton, Slash of Guns N’ Roses, Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, Tool, and many others.
You’ll hear how Jim Dunlop, George Harrison, and even World War II pilots figure into the history of this iconic device. You’ll also learn why Marissa, Illinois was the rock ‘n roll capital of the world in the early 1970’s.
Prepare to be inspired and amazed at the fascinating history of the Heil Talk Box, a little device that has had a huge impact on modern music.
Good Evening Bob and the Rest of the Heil Crew!
