  • Best Rotary Speaker Simulator for Hammond?

    Hello,

    I have a quarter-inch output on one of my C3's, and would like to use it through a keyboard amp. In researching rotary speaker simulators, they all seemed to be geared towards guitarists. Just wondering what's the best rotary speaker simulator for an actual tonewheel Hammond?

    As for an amp, I'm leaning towards a Roland KC-350 120 watt keyboard amp, but if someone has a better recommendation, I'm all ears. :-)

    Many,including myself,use the Neo Ventilator.YMMV.
    Many of us also wonder where you found a 1956 Leslie 145?
    Or is it a typo? 1965 falls within the correct years for that model.
    The Ventilator has put my Motion Sound Pro 3T in the box as new unused for years.....
    at the theaters I just played,the Neo Vent was the go to 'Leslie'.
    Even when I had a real one there....

          Have a look in the Leslie section of the forum, you should find loads of threads on sims.

          I'll also go for the Vent, with the proviso that it's designed to recreate the sound of a miked up leslie, that can go straight into the desk or PA. It's not a 'live' in the room Leslie sound.
          It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

              I'm curious to understand why you wouldn't use the Pro3 that you have with either the Roland amp or with the low pro itself. I would think that a true spinning horn will sound better than a simulated horn. The Low Pro certainly sounds good. If you use a sim you would have to attach it to an amp like the Roland so why not just use the Pro3/LowPro combination?
