Not to take away from Keith Emerson, but a Leslie Speaker doesn't hurt. For a delicate riff, a Leslie Speaker hangs right In there...giving plenty of subtlety and tonal distinction to the passage. For a head-on dramatic number, the Leslie Speaker walks away with it. Hands down. A full line to choose from, from the modestly priced Model 16 for just $267 (no, you don't assemble it yourself) to the super-dramatic Model 925. Can It make you a star? No. But Keith Emerson, superlative keyboard artist for "Emerson, Lake & Palmer," does have a comment. He says, "It helps."
