i've got a question for you guys with plenty of experience. Which effect or combination is used for the Blues Travelers "Carolina Blues" at the intro? And throughout much of the song? Also "piece of your soul" by Storyville is another one. I love the sound of David Holt's strat! What effect is used ? Is it a chorus, a rotary ? Anybody know what pedals he's using? Jeff
The 2 models sold by Fender were quite different in construction/function. One just had a piece of plywood that had a cut out in it rotating in front of the speaker. That one could only be mic-ed from the front The other had a sort of complex shaped, deep piece of styrofoam that rotated in front of the speaker. That one could be mic-ed from the sides could be mic-ed in stereo to a better result.
Both differed from a full Leslie as you could use your own guitar amp and neither one had separate "Bass and Treble" rotors.
I've owned a couple of the ones with the Styrofoam drum. It used a 10" speaker for a full-range sound. The drum rotated at a rate that sounded different than a 122 or 147 type Leslie. It sounded somewhere between the Fast and Slow rates of those cabinets. That is what I recognized about the Storyville track.
Those cabinets are cool but not something I would want to haul around anymore. My Line 6 M5 does a fairly convincing Vibratone effect. Especially when in the mix of a band.

I've been looking at the Strymon Lex. Just want to be sure before i throw my hard earned cash out! That and it's competitors want a pretty penny! But i want to base my decision on quality first regardless, then price. Thanks!
I'm a big fan of most Strymon stuff but I think I would consider the Neo Mini Vent 2 over the Lex. Most Leslie sim pedals do not do a Vibratone sim. They are more geared to the 2 rotor cabinets. The Mini Vent 2 does. Also, the mojo of the Leslie cabinet is its Doppler effect which requires running stereo speakers. Running through one amp can get you close. You would have to hear it for yourself to know if it is close enough.
I have not listened to the other track but if you decide to go with a Uni-Vibe type pedal I am very pleased with the Fulltone Mini Deja-Vibe I recently acquired. Pricey, but as close to the real thing as you can get and more reliable than the original.
