James Haskin's talkbox voice modulator mod!

www.instructables.com/id/Make-A-Talkbox/ Ok, so after watching James' video and looking through the instructable this is the nicest construction of a talkbox for almost no cash what so ever, for those of you that havn't seen it the link is at the top.. James uses a DPDT switch on the guitar.. For my purposes though have the switch on the amp.... well its not as user friendly as need be.. I was wondering how hard it would be to make a seperate footpedal to activate this talkbox...something alittle more professional than just longer wires to a small box with the switch there.... unless that seems to be the right way? I'm not sure maybe i just over anylized the situation, could it be that easy? i was thinking of adding a resistor and an LED (although) you will be able to know when this is running it would just add alittle touch to it you know?

Adding an led to the circuit will probably require a separate power supply for the led.  Running it off the control line for the talk box probably will make the talk box inoperative.

I would add a 1/4" jack and plug to the amp going to the foot switch.  You might want to make it a 1/8" jack just so it's idiot proof if you are setting it up in a hurry or in the dark.
