The Talk box is a classic effect-you can hear it on some of the greatest songs ever recorded, across genres and time, from Funk and '70S rock to hard rock and metal. Its unique, highly expressive character is instantly recognizable. The MXR team has fine-tuned the talk box for modern gigging convenience and tone sculpting while maintaining the unmistakable sonic character that made the effect legendary. With its own amp and speaker driver, the MXR talk box is compact and pedal board-friendly-you don't have to lug around a separate rig or patch into your amp's speaker output. And with volume, tone and gain controls, you can shape and add texture to your talk box voice for maximum impact. Like all MXR pedals, The MXR talk box is built into a sturdy, road-ready housing to endure the rigors of the road. Includes an 18-Volt power supply, an 8' Surgical tube and a mic stand clip. Power Source: 18V DC power supply

With an amplifier connected to the output of the pedal, this charge has a route to ground and is not a problem but if you are looking to use this for recording as well as performance, you will need to bear this in mind.
This is a poor design decision from Dunlop/MXR as there are better choices for power supplies which do not do this. I would much rather pay an extra couple of pounds rather than getting zapped in the face.
It's small size and fairly light weight make it very pedal board friendly
It doesn't require a separate amp to power it
Long sound tube allows the pedal to be placed a reasonable distance from the mic stand
It has a distinct sound, and can be very expressive if used correctly when soloing through it
It has a surprisingly wide range of tones, ranging from Peter Frampton's "Show me the way" through to Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a prayer"
Can be used with most electric instruments, but works best with keyboards and guitars
It can be used as a practice amp if you take the tube out of it
It will instantly make any riff/solo you play sound more awesome!
When learning how to use it, your local shop will run out of paracetamol due to the Jaw Ache you will experience
It is difficult to "Talk" with it, because some letters such as "C" cannot be made without you having to speak with it
It doesn't work well with high pitched notes, so it has little effect when soloing above the 12th fret on a guitar
The tone control doesn't have a lot of control over the tone, so an EQ pedal would be needed to make large changes in sound
Overall this is a great sounding pedal, and can be used to make some interesting sounds and effects. I love this pedal and am giving it 5 Stars because it absolutely deserves it. Rich Tone Music (The guys I brought it from) sent it out immediately, and I have never had any grief with their customer service. It arrived exactly as they listed it and in only 2 days, when they said it could take up to 8. They deserve just as much praise as this pedal does!
Here are Some tips for guitar players I have picked up from using it:
It works well with thick sounding instruments, so use a humbucker equipped guitar in a drop tuning will produce the best results
When soloing with it, use the lower end of the guitar. The higher notes don't work as well and are actually harder to play because you can't look down at your fretboard easily when you are using the talkbox
When playing power chords, add a lower 5th where you can. It will really thicken out the sound and make it more gravelly
Use a gain pedal to boost the gain in the pedal, as you may find it doesn't quite have enough for lead playing
One last thing, I would use it in the effects loop if possible, again to get the thickest sound you can
