You don't have to be the Duke to end up with an iron lung of your own... okay, that's just wrong! Actually, the Iron Lung vocoder pedal by electro-harmonix, when used for the powers of goodness instead of evil, is really quite cool. If you want a cool effect you can use on stage to get anything from vocoded vocals to Frampton-esk talkbox solos, without having to put down your faithful axe and switch over to keys (yikes!), then the Iron Lung is for you. Keep it subtle or go all New York Dolls with it and do some freaky gender bending... er... but with your voice. Despite its simple layout - just a tone knob, a gender knob, and a 3-way mic gain level switch - the 256-band Iron lung provides spot on vocoding with a ton of range. So, whether you're looking for that classic vocoder sound or just want a sweet little tone toy to spice things up with, you'll get what you're after from the electro-harmonix Iron Lung.
