There's nothing like the sound of a Leslie rotary speaker cabinet on guitar. That's why legendary players like Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and others have relied on the iconic effect. Now, for those looking to get that unmistakable sound with the convenience of a pedal, EHX introduces the Lester G: ultimate stereo rotary speaker emulator for guitar.
This ultimate rotary speaker emulator is packed with features, like a specially designed compression circuit to supercharge the rotating speaker effect on guitar. Lester G's comprehensive controls include fully adjustable tube-style overdrive, Fast and Slow modes and an Acceleration control to dial in the rate at which the effect transitions between speeds. The sound of that giant wood cabinet will now fit on a pedalboard!
Guitarists and keyboardists know that nothing beats a Leslie rotary speaker for smooth, swirling stereo chorus. The Electro-Harmonix Lester-G pedal re-creates the classic Leslie sound in pedal form with two adjustable speeds controlled by a footswitch to move between fast and slow textures without tying up your hands. The Lester-G's drive control adds B-3 guts and grit to your sound, while a balance control, which simulates the balance between a Leslie's horn and bass speaker, helps smooth out your tone. Dynamic players will appreciate the Lester-G's onboard compressor, which helps to smooth out rhythms and leads. True stereo ins/outs and a stage-ready metal chassis make the Lester-G a great option for keyboardists and guitarists wanting to add stereo textures to live work and ear-to-ear effects to recordings.

Lush, stereo rotary speaker emulation for guitarists and keyboardists
From classic rock organ tones to dramatic guitar textures, the Electro-Harmonix Lester-G delivers in spades. EHX's faithful homage to the Leslie sound adds an instantly recognizable vibe to chords and leads, while its variable speeds, drive circuit, onboard compressor, and balance control offer new tonal options for any style of music. AudioBuy.com.au Australia guitarists appreciate the Lester-G's stageworthy build, which features a metal chassis for durability underfoot and a buffered bypass for long cable runs.
Vary speeds via footswitch to keep things interesting
Variable speed is part of what separates the EHX Lester-G from other rotary speaker emulators. Players can set slow and fast speeds and toggle between them with a single footswitch for the dramatic, roaming textures Leslies are known for. An acceleration control lets you adjust the ramp-up/ramp-down time between speeds for seamless transitions.
Momentarily pause speaker effects without changing tones
The Lester-G has a traditional bypass switch for when you want to kill it completely. It also features a brake switch for when you want to keep your drive and tone settings without the speaker effects - great for guitar solos and subtle keyboard pads. This is just another way the Lester-G lets you add real humanized movement to your tone to keep your audience interested.
