    altered leslie 710 sound clip

    lately i've been swapping out pieces in my 710 for either repairs or to go after a different sound. it's getting to be a grandfather's axe paradox: the crossover, upper motor, and cabinet are the only original components.

    anyway, i recorded a demo today called "no percussion needed" (just two matched microphones at 90 degrees from the horn) to compare to the old sound so i thought i would share. feedback always appreciated.

    i also recorded this, the worst thing i've ever done. it's based on two popular songs and is called "for the beauty of my party." enjoy!

      Sounds great Logan! Rock on my friend! The missing overlap upper octave of the lower 15" rotor is evident.
      Would be nice to hear the 800HZ to 250HZ octave more for my own taste.
      Consider it usable as is,I would try to get the lower mid octave in there a bit more.
      Most FOH techs are desperate to keep anything below 250HZ from a Leslie making it into a mix.
      It's 'pre dialed out',many used only a treble rotor back in the day.

        thanks Pete!! much appreciated

        i was planning on getting into that 825 project some more next week when i have some pocket money (crossover/speaker mainly), but this one is a lot closer to done. so it'll probably be work on this instead. more lows sounds ideal, i will work toward that end...just bassy enough to shake trinkets off the shelves but still hear the fundamental would be good

        the 15" is a 400w eminence right now, but that amp only pushes 300w at 4 ohms so i can't get it to push the bass low without overdriving the horn (i tried bi-amping, didn't like it). there's maybe 5 other varieties of 15" around here, i plan on digging them out to see what they are before buying another. though that might be what it comes to. it lives at home but ideally i'd like a clear but driveable sound that can keep up with a drummer (would be a lot easier if my drummer would use brushes heh)

        hadn't considered just using the top rotor. it'd be really easy to unplug the bottom and try out at least. i've noticed in my novice recordings the more usable sound i've had is two matched mic's at 90 degrees from the horn. top+bottom mics = muddy or seasick. possibly because i'm stupid but i at least know microphones are as good an approximation of ears as there is

          Addendum




          Nord electro 5 through the 710. the amp is an egnater tweaker, a charming 15 watt head with simple but useful tone sculpting. it's underpowered for what i like in a leslie but for distorted sounds it comes through alright!
