Makes you want to play

Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-G Deluxe Rotary Speaker Pedal:

Leslie simulation is a tricky thing because there's no way a pedal can reproduce the sound of a speaker spinning in the room (4 dimensional sound) but it can reproduce the sound of a miked Leslie as you would hear on a record. So I won't speak to how close this comes to a real Leslie.

This thing is fun to play through both for the rotary effect, especially when using 2 amps (and for God's sake use a pair of tube amps), and for the compression/drive effects that are built it. It inspires a different playing style than I normally use which is also fun and can lead to better recording etc.

The only thing I found to be a little strange is the brake, which really isn't a brake at all but is more like turning off the motor drive and letting it spin down at the rate set by the acceleration knob. It's not a flaw just different and if you want more control you can use an expression pedal.

Something else that would have been nice would have been stereo inputs, I run the second half of my pedalboard in stereo and already have an Electric Mistress as my one mono to stereo pedal.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-G Deluxe Rotary Speaker Pedal:

    The sound is exactly what I have been looking for even though it's a big pedal. They do have a smaller one that sounds good as well. The problem is that I have to use a separate AC adapter or I get a high pitched tone out of my guitar amp. I have tried re-routing everything and the only thing that works is using a separate adapter. It's not a deal breaker because the unit does have a great sound.

      I got this unit to replace a pigtronix rototron. I like this unit much better, it does not have the noise gate problem that the pigtronix has.
