Born to Revolve
When we decided to create a studio-class pedal that faithfully recreates the classic, unmistakable sound of the most sought-after rotating speaker system, we prepared to study every nuance and finest detail. The Strymon sound design labs have been filled with those signature, swirling, three-dimensional sounds, as we painstakingly analyzed and recreated the physics and mechanics behind these systems.
The complete rotary system.
Lex provides you with a complete, accurately reproduced rotary system: the low-frequency bass rotor, the rotating treble horn, the tube-driven amplifier, finely tuned microphone placement, and all the complex sonic interactions between these elements.
Utilizing a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP, every drop of processing power is harnessed to authentically represent these details.
You get eight parameters to tweak, allowing extensive control over the tonality and mechanics of the rotating speaker system. You can manipulate each element, from rotor speed, horn level, acceleration time, microphone distance, tube drive and saturation, and volume level.
Go from a maelstrom of dramatic, up-close, sweeping and swirling sounds, all the way to mellow, tranquil and calming undulations. All of this without a giant cabinet, microphone setup, and costly motor maintenance.

I Adore the Toothsome Tone
The Lex fast becoming one of my favorite pedals. Interestingly, the overdrive is perhaps my favorite feature as it adds awesome tooth to the mix. Even though this pedal 1st and foremost a rotary emulator, I tend to go subtle with the modulation and finding it fills out my tone with an wonderfully organic tone. Like a reverb or soft echo, it simply fills in and plumps up the overall result. I'm feeding a Blues Cube starting with a Musicman EVH, I've thrown in a Hot Cake after the Lex and finished with an Empress Compressor at the end of the signal chain. The Hot Cake really punches up the harmony & sustain when tapped and it certainly delivers the "woman tone". Overally, I feel I could spend hours tweaking and futzing with the Lex in an attempt to get the sound of an organ via guitar, and maybe in time, I will. But for now, I'm loving the simplicity of the signal described above.
Close to Leslie
I did a lot of research on a Leslie sampling pedal including Leslie's. This was my favorite. It is easliy controlled by the foot switches and has a great variation of tone. I have always loved the Leslie tone on songs such as "Badge" by Cream, "No Matter What" by Badfinger and "It Don't Come Easy" by Ringo Starr. There's a lot of fun in this box!
