Tech 21 RotoChoir
Tech 21's RotoChoir emulates the entire signal chain of a mic’d Leslie cabinet, from the tube power amp to the low-frequency speaker and high-frequency horn to the XY stereo-mic setup. The pedal’s Fast/Slow switch lets you slow down, ramp up, or even pause the simulated rotary speaker in a variety of positions. The RotoChoir has a buffered bypass, a Bi-Amp switch, a Drive control, and stereo outputs. MSRP $295.
