I am wondering what anyone may know about bending megaphones. Ever seen, heard, smelled, or maybe even bent one yourself?

I'm not talking about a toy megaphone. What I have is an actual megaphone and not a voice changer.

I just wanted to see if there was any point to doing it before I possibly wreck it.

I doubt there is much bending you can do it with. The only things I'd suggest is adding an external input so you can use it as an amp with a guitar or something. Maybe add a feedback loop? If you're looking for glitches and pitch bending, stick with toys or voice changers.

An external input would be pretty awesome if you're a guitar player or even want something to play bentstruments through!

You might as well wreck it. What good is an un-bent megaphone anyways. I think you could definately bend it... I recommend doing the audio 1/4" jack output first, and a switch for the megaphone speaker on/off though because you will just erode your hearing trying to bend that think without it. Maybe circuit bend a fire alarm and hook it up to the megaphone... and make it so it doesn't turn off... some psyops... you could, always circuit bend your town's tornado siren also.

Hi,
How can I bend regular megaphone...
Where should I put my 6,35' jack input ?
Should I put it just where the microphone is plugged? how about the impedance if I want to use it with a boss DD7 pedal?

"Input Impedance
1 M ohm
Nominal Output Level
-20 dBu
Output Impedance
1 k ohm
Recommended Load Impedance
10 ohms or greater"

Can I still use the megaphone mic to go in the DD7 and then to the megaphone?

In case I put a little analog synth on the input, is it possible to create a switch to bypass it going back to the traditionnal mic?

Thanks a lot for your reply,
a newbie geek that will try anything, but not destroying 10 of them before getting something
