    Yeah, I did oversimplify the Maximizer things a bit with the 'speed' thing. It does try to do some frequency time alignment, and it has to do with different arrival times...possibly because of what...

    The eq on that is more like a 'semi-parametric eq'. A fully-parametric single-band eq would have at least one more knob, for 'width'. The eq on the BBE is not much more than you couldn't do on a...

    If that was a SS Leslie, that would be fine. But, it's a tube Leslie. The Leslie amp needs a load. I have modified a couple Leslie 825s (SS amp) to work as intended, or speakers plugged into an...

    A few observations:

    It might be interesting to look inside that Kustom amp to see from where the signal comes that is fed into the Leslie? The Leslie needs fed from a PREAMP, NOT a power amp. Like...

    A homemade acoustic guitar pickup preamp? Can't tell what exactly that connector on the cable end is. Is that an RCA, or an 1/8" TS plug jack? Looking closer, can't be an RCA plug, I don't think. I...

    Funky cool, in a fugly way. And, if it plays and sounds good, it's good.

    Then, try Tom's suggestions.

    No matter WHAT speaker goes in there...it won't be enough to tame this thing. So, I'll...

    '67-'68 Gibson Hawk Amp
