Lounsberry Tall, Fat & Wide pedal

Postby alex78 » 07 Jan 2021, 20:57

Hello everyone, I wish all of you a happy new year with health, freedom and many many gigs!
I was considering getting an OD pedal for some extra gritt to my rock organ and EP's. Watched some youtube videos of the Organ Grinder and the Tall & Fat that are specially designed for organ. They both sound fabulous, but...they are mono and that is probably not good when using the nord's internal lesslie effect that needs stereo to be realistic. I can not afford extra money for a neo ventilator at the moment, in order to take the mono signal of the pedal and output it as stereo to the PA.
But I recently discovered the Tall, Fat & Wide pedal wich is stereo but much more expensive (345€ on thomman while the other two are about 100€ less). Has anybody tried this pedal with his nord? Is it worth the extra money?

I can say that a leslie simulation in stereo is a glorious experience. But stereo isn't an option in many live gigging situations. I can't say whether or not it's worth it to you or your audience.

I'm going out in stereo, both my nords on a small behringer mixer sitting on my electro next to the drawbars, a single stereo signal to the main mixer with the rest of the band and from there to FOH when live or to a pair of speakers when rehearsing.
The sound from the nords is awesome as it is, no one ever complained about it. I just thought this pedal could give some extra Gritt and character to the sound. We play hard rock & metal stuff and except from organ and other synth sounds, I also play some distorted guitar parts with my wave. In that occassion this pedal could come in handy when cranked up! The wave's drive is nice in lower settings but over 10o'clock is getting annoying.

Going mono on the NS3 would save you from spending the extra money on the T,F&W, but it wouldn't solve you the problem of having an overdrive pedal before the Leslie sim, which isn't in general where you'd want to have it.

The thing is, the internal Leslie sim is very good but as long as we used it we pretty much cannot put any other pedal after it. The Leslie sim has to come last, apart from reverb of course.

Another thing you could do though to use the T&F AND the Leslie sim at the same time is pretty much what being discussed here: nord-stage-forum-f3/reverb-with-organ-question-t20948-10.html#p142261

On Panel A, you turn the Leslie sim on and that's your Leslie signal. On Panel B you route the organ to ch 3 or 4, then into the T&F, then into another channel of the mixer. Then you mix both signal to taste. Not exactly what you were looking for but a decent compromise perhaps.

I have read this thread but I could try it only if I had a stage, unfortunatelly I have just a poor electro-4 with no panels and seperate outputs...
I must say also that I have abandoned all the plans for external pedals and stuff at the moment due to the overall situation. If we manage to get bussy again with the rest of the band I will go with what I have, that is not bad at all, just a bit limmiting sometimes.
Keep healthy and don't let those hard times kill your creativity!
