Vintage leslie gigging mods round up

Postby mtier0067 » 08 May 2014, 20:32

What can one do to make a vintage leslie easier to move around and to have more power on stage. Weight, size, handles, motors, speakers, drivers, support speakers (subs or horn reinforcement) dollies whatever...

What have people done to their 122 or 145 sized cabinets for gig ready leslies. I want the vintage 145 on stage with me. There are loads of options for lightweight leslie clones but although they sound so damn good there is something magical about having a big old wooden box spinning on stage with you that nothing going can get at.

It would be great to see what others have done to keep the vintage leslie on stage with them despite the tempting black road ready solid state options. Pictures are great for this if you can make it work!

I will be posting some things that I have found while on the Internet later this week to get it started. The spin doctor is one that I have seen on other threads but would love to get some better pictures of that if someone owns one...

You might want to google the spinning wall of death or speakeasy.

Is "Speak-easy" still around?

I just checked. They are around, but list rotary speakers under "legacy products" The current products are pre-amps and pedals.
