Rotary Sims

Hadn't seen it mentioned in previous posts, but I've had the Lester K rotary simulator by Electro Harmonix for over a year and it's excellent. It's $178.00 and works and sounds great. For me, it's a nice variation on the Nord C2 between the three onboard Leslies. Also, I use the Lester K with one of my combo organs, a 1970's Yamaha YC-25D, and I'd say it's virtually as good as my Leslie 147 (with Trek II universal pre-amp) is with that set up and infinitely more manageable. I know about the Vent of course but never really wanted to get one. For the cost of the Lester K, I couldn't resist and would recommend it.

I use a Hammond, digital leslie pedal in stereomode for my C2. Now I just ordered an organ & groove reverb, stereo from Reussenzehn in Frankfurt/Germany. I hope getting the real tube-overdrive out of my C2. Especially the treble sounds to me squized and not the warm tubesound that I want, so let’s hope.....

Ok, I didn't know this one, I will have a look, my plan was to get a T&F overdrive and a TC Hall of Fame but why not see other options...Thanks for the info.
But I went to their website, German only...But my understanding is that you have in the same box a real tube drive and a Reverb with tube as well right? So, it could be around the same price that the solution I was thinking about with two pedals...?

The box in action on a Hammond (three boxes in test) Thomas Reussenzehn speaks english.

Yes, both drive and reverb in one box.

Yes, thanks, after I wrote my post, I was thinking that I had seen a sort of comparison between all the overdrive pedals and finally found it, thanks anyway....I Had thought at that time that it was a bit pricey and big because I wanted to buy also a Vent 2 so, it adds to the price....

Now I have tested Reussenzehn organ & groove preamp. Mono from the organ (Clavia Nord C2) into the preamp, mono out of the preamp into Hammond digital Leslie pedal, stereo out of the Leslie pedal. It sounds great, both reverb and drive

Who, it sounds awesome....Well, I was a bit lost with German speaking....After ENGLISH my second language was Russian...Great language to learn during the Cold War....Just kidding...
So, for you, among all the organ "pedals/preamp" in the two reviews below, you think it's the best one? With two real tube right? If yes and if I change my mind for this one instead of the Tall & FT, I will have to rethink my set up...

I substituted my Hammond Digital Leslie Pedal with Neovent II. The difference is huge. Combined with Organ & Groove from Reussenzehn, its absolute top of the top.

Hi Fredrik,
Thanks for the update, what appelle to me In your settings is that the drive and the Reverb are In the same pedal so, two pedals only instead of 3....Well, I was planning to use the dirt from my C2, but I agree, it's ok but not very natural....Cipholis was talking about getting a real tube overdrive ....And if I really need a crazy overdrive like the one on "Lazy/Deep Purple", well, I could dial in both anyway...
So, thanks a lot again, I have the C2, I'm not planning any update but drive/reverb/Leslie might be the two deal....The only thing is that you have Reverb before Leslie right? Which is not the normal path....In the C2, the Reverb is after the Leslie Sim right?
