Down here in the south you will see lots of churches (mainly Black congregations-but not all) with a Leslie 147 and Hammond B3 combo. They will bring a pretty penny when sold. There is nothing like the sound of the B3 overdriving the amp in the leslie. It is a great sound-but is hard to deal with because of all the sound it puts into the room. BTW the old/origional Leslie 147's are much better than the new ones, at least the new ones that I have seen.

The only Yamaha with rotating loudspeakers that I have seen had styrofoam tweeters rotating vertically. That is totally wrong. The idea is to get envelopment and therefore you have to rotate horizontally-as in the leslie. That way it bounces off of all the various walls around the room.
