    Which of these 2 Leslies is a better Deal?

    Seems like there are a few good affordable leslies out there this holiday season. Between these two, which represents the best deal? For An A-122. I'm not running the reverb through the leslie.

    I know the 145 was originally built and has been maintained by Goff. asking $850.

    The 21H is now being offered for $500.

    They're both the same except the height of the cabinet. Real workhorse Leslies... tough, dependable, and sound fabulous.
    I'd still vote for the 145... Note my set-up below... the 145 is my favorite ! With prices that low, get the better unit.

    I would say that it depends on what style of playing you like to do.

    For rock, choose the 145. For jazz, choose the 21H.

    The 21H will have deeper bass. The 145 will be brighter.

    The 145 pictured actually has a 122 amp in it.

    The 145 belongs to Ron Levy. Very Cool. Did not know that much about him but now I do. Anyone here ever hook up with him?

    Latest pics from Ron. He said Goff built the leslie long ago and has been the maintainer of it. pretty beat up as its a road warrior. Asking $850. Thoughts?
