This unit will plug in between your guitar and amp, just like any other effects pedal. They do make PVC caps with a five-eighths inch hole in it! I have done extensive experimentation with various size and thickness of tubing and I believe this is, all around, the best. Seriously though, stay in touch with what your head is telling you as you play. This is the trickiest part of the entire project. If anyone would like to contribute designs, ideas or comments, let me know. This is the implementation that I am currently using.

Talkbo is the implementation that I am currently using. I use a small Peavey Rage amp. You might find this tubing at a plumbing supply or the aquarium section of a pet store.

I recommend 6 feet or so of clear non-toxic plastic tube size: Above is a diagram of a better method to amplifiy your talk box. They do make PVC caps hhorn a five-eighths inch hole in it!
Most big hardware stores in USA carry clear plastic tubing. How do I know these things?

The ultimate set-up is the all-in-one unit. You need to exercise caution with the volume of the sound going into your mouth. This is the trickiest part of the entire project.

This unit will plug in between your guitar and amp, just like any other effects pedal. Zip Cord is two wire electrical cord usually brown that can be unZIPped by just pulling the two wires apart. I used right angle Switchcraft jacks for the patch cable so there are no protrusions from the back of the amp. Seriously though, stay in touch with what your head is telling you as you play.
