Worth the Buy
I play a Hammond Sk2 at a mega-church in Tulsa. Our sanctuary seats just under 5k, and depending on the speaker/events we fill it up a few times with multiple services over the weekends. While directing in with the onboard Leslie produced great results, I was craving more! I was worried about how small this guy is and if it would be able to keep up with the large area. This 200W packs a punch and shocked our sound engineers. They were amazed at the quality of the warm sound as well. It keeps a low profile (which staging crews love) and we enclose it with soundproof panels in every direction but mine so I can treat is as a stage monitor (we use Avioms also). We direct in for the lows, and use a mic for the horn. After the mixing is done, this has exceeded my expectations. I love adding that subtle crunch with the tube, and you can floor your expression pedal to increase the grit, just like our old B3/Leslie. I have a preset perfect for the conditions of the church auditorium, and another that I can tweak live anytime for smaller venues. I went the route of the 2101 for it's tweakability. There are so many things you can do with this model that I don't see you can do with the other modern Leslie's. This is totally worth the purchase, you won't be disappointed.
