    I had to replace the microphone I had for years. The new one does not have a built in echo feature like the old one did. Can anyone recomend a cheap effects box for a Halloween type microphone effect? Is a Mini Microphone Mixer with integrated echo effect what I'm looking for?

    Hi all! I'm dressing as Aunt Bethany from Christmas Vacation at one of the Halloween events I'm attending, and I'd love to take a fake jello mold with me.
