Leslie 145 rotary speaker

In 1937, Don Leslie invented tje Leslie speaker. This rotating speaker is used in combination with the Hammond organ, and refines its sound. The effect of the speaker is based on a principle called the “Doppler Effect”. It’s why a train whistle seems to go down in pitch when a train passes you. Don Leslie took a horn speaker and made it go around in a circle: a legend was born. The spinning horn gave the Hammond Organ what is called in the pipe organ world a tremulant. Vibrato, Tremolo, and a little “whoosh” of air all put together. It made the Hammond Organ sound completely different.
