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. A stereo output 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.
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. Music Experience guitarists appreciate the Lester-G's stageworthy build, which features a metal chassis for durability underfoot and a buffered bypass for long cable runs.
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.
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.
The EHX Lester G uses the finest rotary speaker simulation available today, and comes with a variety of deluxe features. Stereo outputs provide a lush, realistic effect. Tube-emulated overdrive is available with the DRIVE knob, and speaker mix can be fine-tuned with the BALANCE knob. Switch between adjustable FAST and SLOW modes for an accurate reproduction of a classic rotary speaker cabinet’s speed adjustment. An expression pedal jack allows for fine tuning of the rotation speed with an expression pedal. The Lester G also features a compression circuit that adds lush sustain to electric guitar. Using the compressor, the LESTER G provides guitarists with the fat, full sustain of an organ, to get the most out of the rotating speaker effect.
The ultimate rotary speaker emulator packed with goodies like a specially designed compression circuit to supercharge the rotating speaker effect on guitar!
