Sounds good, but....
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.
sounds amazing with caveats
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.
