Come on now, it's got nothing to do with marching bands, and off-topic is the most active forum on the site anyway.

Believe it or not, I actually have seen a few bands use talkboxes in their pit. Besides, you can't tell me that wasn't cool 8-)

It was cool in the 70's. Then Roger Troutman used it in Zapp and every kid had to have one (I have a Heil Talkbox that I bought in '78). So I've seen better; between this and autotune, it's a tie to which is more annoying now in music. 8-)
