Hammond-Suzuki USA is shipping the first production units of their G37 and G27 Leslie Speakers designed for the Guitar.
The G37/G27 is roughly one third the size and weight of a traditional keyboard Leslie Speaker, but has many of the same components, according to the manufacturer.
Unlike the last Leslie designs for guitar in the late 60's, Hammond-Suzuki say the G37 and G27 have a "real" horn spinning on the top (the same rotor as used on the Leslie 122), and the traditional Leslie rotor on the bottom. A 100 watt channel-switching guitar amp with "tube pre" powers the G37 while the G27 is powered by the user's own amp.
The G37/G27 is also indicated for use with electro-acoustic guitars, electric violins, harmonicas, melodions, and even vocals.
Pricing & Availability
MAP pricing for the G37 is $1495.00, and the G27 is $1325.00.
