    Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-K Stereo Rotary Speaker Pedal:

    The Lester K is a very well thought out and easy to use effect. The sound quality is very good to excellent. I have had and used both Leslie and RotoSound mechanical speaker cabinets with my keyboards in the past and the Lester K delivers a rotary speaker sound that can't be beat.

    It is so small and compact. It fits nicely on the floor next to your other KB control pedals or up on the keyboard so that you can adjust the controls while playing.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-K Stereo Rotary Speaker Pedal:

    A great product that lets you maximize your pedal board space due to the small size of the plugs. Just be aware if your going to assemble 20 cables in one evening (like I did) its going to take a bit of time but the results are worth it. Every cable worked the first time!

      Another high quality pedal from TC, Toneprint puts this way over the top of other octaver pedals.

        Really Stinks- My keyboards' On Board Effect Better

        Pros

        Cons

        • Poor Sound Quality

        Best Uses

        • Only if you have no on board rotating speaker.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-K Stereo Rotary Speaker Pedal:

        Very disappointed. Sounds fake and very electronic. My multiple keyboards have much more realistic rotating speaker effects: Nord, Kong Krome and Yamaha s90ES. Wish I paid the extra money and tried the Leslie Rotating Speaker Pedal.

        Reliability in question

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-K Stereo Rotary Speaker Pedal:

        after only 3 total hrs, output trips out when switching to fast rotor. Now I have the joy of discovering
        whether Warranty is of any use.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix LESTER-K Stereo Rotary Speaker Pedal:

        Bought this to use with a Hammond M3 (the "baby B3") that a friend gave me. (The M3 doesn't have line output but it takes only a couple of solder joints to add line output.) Fed straight from the M3's line out, the Lester K delivers a very realistic Leslie tone. It really turns the M3 into a "full Hammond." You can get an authentic Jimmy Smith sound with ease, just set both speed knobs at 12 o'clock. It adds a lot of grit and edge to the sound of the M3. The overdrive is nothing special, it's kind of transistor-y and thin sounding. I may add a better-sounding fuzz box later, but those are a dime a dozen these days.

          I own a Hammond and Leslee 145, so very familiar with the sound. Effect does an excellent job of recreating fast/slow, and slow down. Will use it for guitar and keys.
