NEW PRODUCT***** MEET "LESTER"(PATENT PENDING) THE NEW "LIL' MONSTER"
This is the "Lil' Monster," the first "ported Leslie" that I know of. It has been ported for bass output, and believe me, it will "Rip your head off". I am calling this a "Lester" (Patent Pending), the male version of a Leslie. Don't get excited Ladies, but believe me, "this one is ENDOWED." There should have been one Loooong ago.
This "Lester" has a 2 channel tube amp with 70 watts (35 up for the horn and 35 down for the Woofer) with separate volume controls for the woofer and the horn driver. It puts out an honest 70 watts. There is only a top rotator. The bottom rotator has been left out deliberately to increase the bass response as a result of requests from my keyboard customers. The size is extremely small for the end result.
27inches wide, 21inches deep and 28 inches high.It weighs in at a modest 75 pounds, has two built in handles for easy moving and caster's so it rolls. This is a "brand new "Lester" (pat.pend.) of my design, (patent pending) and constructed at my shop in North Highlands ,CA. This unit, as shown, sells for $1500.00 plus shipping, and can actually be shipped Fed-Ex or Ups. It comes with a full one year warranty (excluding tubes) and this includes the switching box, quality speaker and horn driver. The one year warranty does not include shipping costs for repairs or replacement parts covered under warranty. All shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer. Standard speaker is a 15 in Eminence. Standard Horn Driver is a Peavey RX 22)Optional speaker and horn drivers are available, such as: JBL, Altec, Atlas, etc., at an extra cost of course. If you're looking for the ultimate "Lester" (pat. pend.) for Hammond Organs and most keyboards, you have finally found it. "Lester" has fast-slow and off positions so that you can finally take "one" cabinet to cover everything.
Everyone who has played this says it has the sound of a true "leslie" for organ and "the best piano sound reproduction they have ever heard." Thanks for looking, and all questions will be answered asap. The last picture shows "Lester" (pat.pend.) next to a Leslie 145 cabinet for size comparison.

OTHER LESTER IDEAS
You are looking at what is called in my shop (the MONSTER). I just finished this Leslie for a fellow in Salt Lake City by the name of Jeremy Abernathy. He is a free lance musician who is driving this Leslie with a Hammond XK3. He plays alot with trios (guitar, drums, and him), so he runs all the bass lines. This Leslie is using a modified Conn Organ Amp, which has separate channels for the bass and treble (separate volume controls). Jeremy picked the stain color and it was his idea to use the black satin for the molding. I haven't seen anything like this before but I'm really impressed with his choices. The black trim is a great idea for touch up. This Leslie has an 18 inch woofer for the bass section and a high powered horn driver for the mids and highs. The output is a REAL 75 - 80 Watts of TUBE POWER, depending on the amp I use and will drive you out of the room when cranked up. All my mid sized Leslie's (145 style) will be called THE MONSTER from now on if I have done the Modifications. Yes we do make Custom Fight Cases for the road.
"The Standard price for the "Monster is $1800.00" plus shipping. I will negotiate this price if you have something to contribute to the cause. Thanks for looking,Hal 9000...) "
This started out as a Model # 225 (no top plate). Model's 225 and 125 can be made into 145 style Leslie fairly easily (by Me) (size is the same). Prices will be negotiated according to what(parts wise)you want to contribute to the cause.
