I was yelling into the pickup and it was being heard on the amplifier, add some delay and reverb, on hi-gain settings, and it sounds like a Godzilla laugh.gif

It works if you put a cell phone up to the pickup and have the person talk through the pickup.

If you crank the amp, and then get your pickups near any device that uses power (or often even batteries), you will hear the machine talk ph34r.gif
