Electro-Harmonix has introduced a pair of new ‘Lester‘ effects pedals, that they describe as ‘The Ultimate Rotary Speaker Emulator’:
- The Lester G was designed with guitarists in mind, and includes a dedicated compressor that maximizes the rotary speaker effect on guitar; and
- The Lester K is tailored to the needs of keyboardists looking for Leslie-style rotary speaker effects.
“The Lester G is the ultimate rotary speaker effect,” says EHX President and Founder, Mike Matthews. “The Lester K is great for keyboards and, if a guitarist already owns a compressor, they can also use the Lester K to get really close to the Lester G.”
Here’s Bill Ruppert’s demo video for the new EHX Lester G:
