    I am seriously thinking of getting a Boss RT 20 Leslie Simulator. However, I play with lots of volume and with two tube screamers. I do alot of SRV/blues rock tunes. What are your experiences with this pedal in gig settings? Sounds good from the few MP3s I can find, but most are done with clean tones! I don't want it if it is going to fall apart as soon as I put the juice to it! What's your opinions on this pedal? Should I look elsewhere? Thanks!

    Sounds great! Still would like to hear from folks that use it with higher, gig level volume in a band setting. Just want to know that it won't fart out on me!

    Here is another clip for you done a couple of years ago when I first got it. It has a strat being played through a Timmy with light overdrive. The only thing I have to occasionally adjust is the balance between the horn and rotor. Sometimes I roll the horn back to cut just a little treble. Sounds great live or recorded though.

    Hi Angle Loss,

    Great demo, really nice to go from slow to fast and back. I would like the slow spead with lots of overdrive. Still would like to hear this thing with some heavy OD lead work!

    I'm not for sure on mine yet...I would like to have given a try to the Rotosphere... I'll make my final decision when my sunlion arrives..

    but regarding high volume and high gain issue. it works good with a fuzz and it sounds even better loud. by itself it even has a slight volume boost.
