    The best cheap rotary sims require more than a six pack to sound good. For some a case still won't make it work.

    The best rotary sims cost 20% of what a DUI cost.

    I don't drink hardly at all so I own a NEO ventilator.

    I haven’t had that pedal for years, but I could dial in pretty convincing fast & slow Leslie sounds.

    Sorry, but I don’t remember any exact settings...

    If I didn't drink and buy stupid sh^H^H stuff, I could be retired.

    I also have a NuX Mod Core. It does a pretty good Leslie thing, but you also get a bunch of other modulation effects, so it's a good deal.

    Zoom MS-50G has Leslie, Univibe and about 200 other effects for $100.

    I have one of these. It is quite believable. Construction seems cheap, but I used it for 5 years without any issues. Behringer Rotary Machine.

    Leslie 16? I have one of those in storage partway through a restoration, but there's no room for it in my current place.

    This is a 10 inch rotor from a 122 Hammond mounted in an old HH115 cabinet - bout half the size of a 16 (and just as much fun)

    The Digitech Ventura isn't bad IMO.

    However, posts asking for "cheap", "super cheap", and "doesn't break the bank", without any defined budgetary parameters, will yield every range of answer under the sun.

    If we are going down that road, how about a used Motion Control Sidewinder?

    Alongside a friendly Deluxe Reverb to show scale

    You can find these used in GC and put a good distortion in front of them. There's one at the Orange GC listed at $349, HERE. They've got a tube preamp, a spring reverb, an Emminence Legend speaker, and a built-in dynamic mic.

    Looking up from the bottom:
