    Just got mine today, I have been waiting a long time. In a nut shell, It's great and I'm loving it. It's not totally transparent, but neither is a Leslie. It sounds so much like a Leslie...Totally user friendly, and enough parameters for the tweak geeks. Sounds great with drive too. The on board pre-amp drive is subtle, but very realistic too. If you ever played through a real Leslie, they are very raw, and get nasty when pushed...The Lex isn't quite as nasty, but that's a good thing. You really can't make this baby sound bad...I'm looking forward to taking it on the gig. In a two guitar band, sometimes things get a little static with straight sounds. Something like this is a great tool to get a little variety. I have the El Cap too. The Strymon stuff is some of the best ever IMO. Thanks Strymon. :band:phones

    Mine came yesterday...spent two hours in swirly tonal bliss(try it stereo into two amps!!!!). My only use of a real Leslie was from a studio session 10 or more years ago, and from what I remember, this is as close as I have found to that sound and feel.
