    I was about to sell my Mad Professor Little Green Wonder because it just wasn't working for me with my amps, but today I found a great application for it where it works better than anything else I have. I've got it driving the front of a Korg Toneworks G4 Leslie simulator, and it's doing the job nicely! Here's a clip... http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6437056 This is straight into the LGW > G4 > direct into Metric Halo ULN-2, using the G4's cabinet simulator. That extra bit of ugly grit that had me disliking the LGW has found its place!

    Just to add to that, I also tried a Zendrive and that did a fantastic job as well, for a more "mellow" Leslie. The surprise was the fact that Timmy didn't fair so well for the task!

    And what are the amps the LGW is not working with?

    A pair of '83 Fender Super Champs, and a custom handbuilt 100w combo called a Rockbender, essentially a Bassman preamp circuit but with EL-34 power stage. The guitar is a '68 Strat. The LGW has failed to remove an Ulbrick 12AXE and a white Eternity.

    what chip does your LGW have inside ??? its the one you can adjust to your needs thru a range of chip swaps tl82 and 72 get cleaner and bolder the 272 breaks up easier.... heck you can even swap chips with the E or try a BB 2134 ;)

    Thanks for that. It's got a 272 in it. But the problem isn't with the way the pedal overdrives, it's a very versatile pedal, it's a matter of how the overall tone of the pedal interacts with my rig. I gave it a good run at about a dozen gigs and tried every tonal permutation, but it just didn't click. It would be counter productive to swap chips with the Eternity, because the E is currently fulfilling its role brilliantly. But as I said in the OP, the good news is that I found a great role for the LGW to play, driving the front of the G4. It kicks the crap out of the G4's internal Drive, as would be expected!
