The one-of-a-kind pulse sound is now available for your guitar.
The Leslie G27 1x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet was designed especially for the professional guitarist after countless interviews and hundreds of hours of product testing with famous guitarists around the world. The G27 guitar speaker can connect with other amplifiers for that unmistakable rotating sound made famous in such classic rock anthems as The Beatles' "Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds," and Pink Floyd's "Echoes."
The Leslie speaker cab features single-channel, low and high input jacks. The two-speed horn and bass rotor has slow and fast speeds that can be adjusted individually. The rotor will automatically stop in the forward position when the stop mode is selected, which maximizes the sound pumping out toward the audience. The FS-10TL foot switch enables the control of the speed of the rotors between stop, slow, and fast. Leslie's speaker system is capable of handling an external amplifier up to 100W RMS. The vintage 12" V30 speaker is made with all the original materials and a high-frequency horn driver for that unmistakable Leslie sound. The cannel select footswitch lets you adjust the speed selection on the fly, from fast, to slow, to stop. The rugged-built painted cabinet is constructed of 3/4" Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF), with protective corners and two folding handles.
The Leslie Model 18 or "Vibratone," is a holy grail for vintage guitar amp collectors. Few pedals can mimic the shimmering sound that a genuine Leslie can bring. The Vibratone amps are hard to find and can't be beat. That's why the Leslie G27 guitar cab is a real Leslie, voiced for electric and acoustic-electric guitar, and beats the vintage box hands-down.
Embrace the pulsing sound marked by rock gods. Order today.

Comments about Leslie G27 1x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:
Dreamed of owning a Leslie for years. Very disappointed with this amp. The cab is made of painted particle board. It easily chips and dents and is really heavy. It should have casters - or even a place for them. Frankly, I don't think the housing could support them though. Why not plywood with tolex??? There was overspray inside the cab. Nevermind the materials used, the build quality was lacking.
Note- The drum's "special" material looked to be simply styrofoam. Seriously.
BTW - Mine arrived damaged and I could see signs of an attempt to repair the cab from previous damage. It was definitely a returned item and even arrived with the wrong pedal. Luckily I had a two-button footswitch to allow me to turn the rotors on-off, fast-slow.
The good part? Outstanding Leslie tones. I chose the model w/o an amp so I could use my own tube amp. I powered it with an Orange Thunderverb 50.
The first thing most Leslie owners do is to remove the speaker grills so you can visually see the drum/rotors spinning. Therefore, you would have the 'rear' of the amp facing out. The problem with this is that when you stop the drum, it faces the front. Kind of defeats that feature for most of us.
Probably best suited to sit in a studio to never be moved. I really wanted to love this amp, but I couldn't live with it's limitations and poor quality and I sent it back.
