Strymon’s Lex rotary speaker simulating effects pedal gives you the enchanting sound of a rotating Leslie speaker in a pedalboard-friendly stomp box. The greatest benefit of the Lex is the quality of tone you’ll enjoy without having to lug a rotary speaker cabinet with you. Two individually selectable speeds are footswitchable, and the extensive I/O, 4-knob interface, and deep-editing secondary features let you dial in the pedal’s sound to perfectly fit your performance needs. The Strymon Lex Rotary effects pedal is a much more convenient way to get those iconic swirling sounds.
Strymon Lex Rotary Effects Pedal at a Glance:
- Rotary speaker simulation
- Highly customizable
- Strymon: a philosophy of quality
Rotary speaker simulationRotating Leslie speaker cabinets have been used for beautiful liquidy organ and electric guitar tones for decades. But the speaker cabinets’ size and weight largely kept them from being used live very often. Strymon’s Lex pedal gives you those same pulsing sounds without the hassle and back-breaking weight of an original rotary speaker system. The Lex offers two individual rotary speeds that can be selected with a tap of a footswitch. And a bi-amp output method allows you to send different frequencies to separate amps for an even more realistic experience.
Highly customizableThe faceplate of the Lex boasts controls for Fast Rotor Speed, Preamp Drive, Horn Level, and Mic Distance. These four controls converge to wonderfully approximate the sounds of a spinning Leslie. But under the hood is a wide range of secondary features to customize every nuance of your tone. By accessing these options, you can define the cab direction, the slow rotor speed, the Lex’s acceleration time, and more. And an expression pedal input lets you control these parameters in real time.
