Paul Kossoff’s Leslie Speaker

This was one of the few guitar effects that Paul utilized. Most notably it can be heard in the studio recording of Time Away.

In case you’re not familiar with what a Leslie speaker is – it’s basically a custom speaker box that generates a “wobbly” sound by rotating a baffle chamber (“drum”) in front of the loudspeaker. This “effect” was originally designed for the Hammond organ, but people quickly started combining it with other instruments, including the electric guitar.
