"The Rotosphere he just likes to add for color. It's not really a primary part of his tone, but he likes to kick that in for the big Leslie kind of sound. It only comes on every once in a while. There's not a set tune that it's on. He'll kick it in during a solo just because and then he'll kick it in a place where you wouldn't think that it would be," says Jeff Beck's guitar tech.more
Tube Rotosphere® MK II has all the inspirational power of the legendary Leslie® cabinets. It not only puts the response of a tube-powered Leslie at players' toe-tips, it also boasts two rotation speeds and legitsounding deceleration & acceleration effects. Rotosphere's spectrum ranges from clean to sizzling rock scream. In stereo mode, it serves up all the tonal complexity and dynamics of the real deal, a bona fide Leslie. In fact Tube Rotosphere MK II feels so real, that some of world's most celebrated players won't leave home without it!
It is bulky and a bit of a hassle. There are only two Leslie spin settings: fast or slow. Most of the time, the fast is too fast and there is no way to lower the speed. With the slow spin, many times it is too slow, with no way to increase the speed. It would be a great pedal if there was a control to adjust the spin speed of fast and slow, with no overlap (e.g. fast only slows to a point, and slow only speeds to a point). Meanwhile, the break works great and the drive gain is very nice.
I've had this a very long time... it can do a pretty convincing leslie in the right circumstances. Its a little noisey unless you really screw around with the tube in it for the lowest gain option.... the wall wart PSU is chintzy and easy to break on the road. Mine is broken. I'm not sure whats wrong with it but tis ot the tube. It passes signal but the output is crazy low and there's no low end. I don't miss it enough to worry about fixing it. Very cool effect though, just not very road worthy. Mine saw a lot of action on keys, obviously.
