Looking forward for a friend. Any ideas? Nux? Amoon? Etc.
Suggesting from a "friend": Nux Roctary, Donner Alchemy (not much change in rotary effect though, but what's there is good)
Try that little Danelectro pedal from some years ago. I think it was called Rocky Road. I have one and love it! Got it new a long time ago but never felt the need to upgrade it.
There’s good rotary sims and cheap rotary sims. Choose 1.
The least expensive Leslie sim I’ve heard that I'd consider is the EHX Lester. $150. The best IMHO is the Neo Ventilator. $450.
put a fan in front of your amp... face the fan in.
Does that really work?
I was going to say: start saving up for a good one!
MXR Micro Chorus. "Rotary" is pretty much all I use it for. Turn knob to where it's pointing at the "I" in "INPUT" and there is the high speed of a Fender Vibratone, 2:00 for the slow speed. $90 at Sweetwater.
You can get reasonably close with an Arion SCH-Z (chorus pedal). You can find them for +/- $50.
The original SCH-1 sounds a little better (I’ve had both), but they go for ridiculous money now.
The housing is super cheap, but it’s a good Leslie sim (although you can’t switch between fast/slow) and it’s a nice chorus too.
Line6 made a fairly realistic sounding Leslie pedal, the Roto Machine, that ramps up/down and more or less sounds & behaves like a Leslie. You should be able to pick up a used one for around $100 (there’s one for $75 on Reverb right now). I had one and let it go (wish I still had it).
Find a YouTube demo of it.
It works slightly better than swinging your head around in circles.
Good - Cheap - Rotary Simulator
... pick two.
I have this https://reverb.com/item/911057-behr...ine-leslie-simulator-guitar-keyboard-fx-pedal
I use it on "It Don't Come Easy" and "No Matter" what at gigs. Does the job very well and is super cheap. There is a thread on it here a TDRPI here http://www.tdpri.com/threads/behringer-rm600-rotary-machine-as-good-as-the-competition.460519/
I've been using a Mooer Soul Shiver. Pretty good.
Hi fabricator! would you mind sharing your favorite setting on the Arion SCH-Z?
How about the Hotone Roto? Fits the price bill and it’s ok. I don’t use it much but it dials in nicely when needed. It’s tiny too!
I owned a Lex, but now I use a Nux Mod Core. I’m really quite happy with it. It cost me about $20 used.
That's mine, and I enjoy it a lot. Maybe someday they'll pack it into a pedal big enough for two buttons.
An old Boss flanger works as a rotary speaker simulator for the noisy dives I play in.
