Mint condition Mahaffay Rotary Wave. Built and mounted by Chris Mahaffay himself. These normally come as a kit and they can be quite daunting to mount! Plus you would have to do it yourself or pay someone to do it. 

I'd rather sell locally as a pickup in NYC but if you are really interested I can calculate shipping to your destination and ship it. 

Essentially, it's a mini Leslie rotary cabinet for guitar. The sound of the Beatles and Cream and Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan - when they used a Leslie of course - and of course, it can easily cop the tones of Robin Trower, Ry Cooder and the Stones as well! (among countless others). Quite amazing to hear that in person. It's an analog effect that is incredibly striking and moving that NO pedal can replicate!

Great thing is it's really manageable in size. If you've ever shlepped an Leslie Organ Cabinet you probably know what it's about. This is not a huge piece of furniture, but a VERY LIGHT small cabinet--approximately 19 lbs. Plug your amp to the Rotary Wave, either alone or in parallel with the speaker of the amp. Has a foot switch for on/off and two speeds. Adjust speed with a knob on the cabinet. 

It's the ultimate analog effect...
These go new for $399 as a kit PLUS shipping PLUS the time to build! (and if you don't have the means to do so, the money!)
I have over 600.00 invested in this unit, so my loss is your gain. Only selling because I have TWO!
Comes with the original footswitch, paperwork, and embroidered "knapsack" with logo!

By the way I only put the telecaster book in the pic to show the scale! :)
