    Anyone here have experience with these? I was looking at one with a footpedal that lets you run guitar into it. I understand because it doesn't have the horn it's not that great for keys but since guitar usually doesn't use those frequencies I thought it might not be that bad. It does have the 20 watt amp and I also wonder if that is good for guitar... any info would be great, thanks.

    Try it. It's pretty damn cool. My old roommate has a B3 and an A100, plus three Leslies. So as you can imagine, I was used to "the real thing" and thought it wouldn't be very cool without the horn, but they actually are pretty neat.

    I'm not certain, but didn't the Leslie 25 only have a one-speed motor? I may be wrong on that . . . . I have a model 16 (same as the Vibratone) and the fast speed is extremely cool sounding, so you might want to research a bit. If the 25 is only one speed, I know that two-speed motors show up on eBay all the time and are reasonably priced. Good luck!

    looks neat but also looks like it's $1,500 a little more that I'm willing to go for.

    thanks for the suggestion tho

    yes, one speed. the fast and a brake. I really only like the fast speed for guitar really. Plus I found this one with the pedal that interfaces with the guitar and it's NOS. It's tempting me.
