I just have to quit watching videos of EH products. Now I just have to get one of these. It's been out for awhile, but I hadn't heard one. I wonder how it would sound along with my B9 pedal?
Not everything in this demo is great, but some of it is superb. Black Hole Sun, in particular.

If I didn’t already have a Line 6 Roto-Machine I’d be all over it!

Too easy. "Dolly Dagger". My entire life is based upon knowing everything Hendrix ever did.

Summer of '67 I was just out of the 7th grade. "Are You Experienced" came out. I put it on the ginormous Zenith console in our living room.

I immediately did everything possible, including methods not entirely 'legal' to buy a guitar.

Hendrix rocked my world and listening to Electric Ladyland on or near it's release date of October 16, 1968 always amazes me.
I would have kept listening but my 18 month old sister had other plans! Oops!

Being a kind of Leslie snob, that sounds really good. I have had a Leslie for the last 25 years and 2 Leslies for the last 10 so I'm pretty particular about pedals claiming to do that. I might even consider getting one of those pedals. Still not selling the Leslies. There's something about that 3 dimensional sound swirling around the room that can't be done with a pedal through a single amp. Stereo....maybe. There's still more to it than that.

Your’re right ninworks, you can’t beat the real thing! But I love the features of this pedal, the compression, the ability to vary the ramp up/down speed, etc.
I sometimes use the B9 pedal in the band, but I almost think this pedal could replace it.

"I immediately did everything possible, including methods not entirely 'legal' to buy a guitar."

Hendrix was a major influence on me, also. My older sister had the "Are You Experienced" album, that was all it took. I borrowed a guitar from her husband and started learning.

Good demo, awesome sound. I would have been interested in hearing it dialed back and not so heavy handed.

The original Leftee is a bad influence. He only comes out to play periodically.

I built a Leslie when I was a teenager. Always loved the sound but couldn't afford one. I got my hands on an old sewing machine motor and variable speed rheostat footpedal for it. A friend had an old cabinet of some kind that was about 3 feet tall and 16 inch square. I was in high school metal shop and it had a aluminum foundry. My dad had a automotive garage so I always had access to old pistons. I made a pulley mold for the sand foundry out of wood. I melted down some pistons and poured them. Then I took the casting and machined 2 pulleys. One out of the piece I had cast and a smaller one out of a piece of bar stock about 2" in diameter.

I made a platform to mount the motor on out of a piece of plywood and mounted it into the inside of the cabinet. I cut a hole in the platform and mounted an old 8" speaker I had out of an old Silvertone guitar amp I had on the bottom of it. Then I made 3 cones from sheet metal. One was 8" wide at the bottom and closed at the top. The other 2 cones had about a 2" hole in the small end and a 4" hole in the big end. I cut 2 holes in the larger cone 180 degrees apart and used L brackets to screw the smaller cones to it. The cone assembly resembled a kind of Tin-Man Mickey Mouse hat.

Then I took a piece of 1" strap and mounted it across the middle of the bottom of the 8" cone. I drilled a hole it it and ran a 1/4" shaft through the center of the strap and up through the apex of the cone. I brazed the shaft to the metal strap. I left enough protruding through the strap to run it through a 1/4" hole I had drilled in the center of the large pulley on the lathe. I tightened it to the shaft with a set screw. There was still enough 1/4" strap hanging out the bottom of the pulley to run it through a bearing. I don't remember exactly how I mounted the bearing but put it in the center of the 8" speaker I had previously mounted to the wooden platform in the cabinet.

Then I found something to use as a drive belt that fit the groove I had machined into both pulleys. I mounted the motor to the platform, ran the belt across the 2 pulleys, plugged in the rheostat pedal for the sewing machine motor, and it actually spun and worked. The noise the mechanism made was very loud but it did work. I plugged the amp I had taken the speaker out of it and it actually made that doppler sound like a Leslie. The motor and bearing noise was almost louder than the amp but it was a cool project for a 16 year old. I got a good grade for metal shop out of that project.

I don't remember what happened to it but it was still working until it was gone. I kind of lost interest in it after it was built due to the excessive noise.

I always wanted a Leslie ever since I heard The Beatles use them on guitars. I bought a Maestro Phase Shifter when they first came out but that didn't even come close to what I was hearing in my head.

I recently watched a demo of a new EH pedal and thought it sounded super cool and was very unique, but now I can't recall the name.
