If you want to mount the Ventilator on your keyboard or rack for easier adjustment; or you want to be able to stop the rotors for a really old-school sound (ex: Jimmy Smith or Felix Caveliere), you'll need a remote control.  One option is our Halfmoon Switch.  If hand operated controls aren't your thing, though, we offer floor pedals.  These switches were designed for the original Ventilator, but also work with the Ventilator II (Remote setting at 9:00); and the mini-VENT for Organ, if it has the Mini-Remote.  Our dual footswitch can be ordered three ways:  '122 style,' '760 style,' and '122 Momentary.'  All three versions have a removable cable so you can choose a length that suits your needs.  In an emergency, any TRS cable you have around should work.

122 STYLE:  In an original Leslie 122, the Brake Option plug (without the rare and unpopular Brake Accessory) simply disconnects the Chorale (slow) motors, and so the speed control either selects between Chorale and Tremolo (fast) with the jumper plug; or Stop/Tremolo without it.  Tremolo is always Tremolo, and the 'other setting' is either Chorale or Stop.  [BW:  The Ventilator Remote calls this MODE 1.  This is my personal favorite setup for organ.]

122 MOMENTARY:  The momentary pedal works the same, except that the Speed switch only changes to Tremolo for as long as the switch is pressed, acting more like a piano sustain pedal.  The Brake switch still selects Stop or Chorale, the speed setting when the switch isn't being pressed.  This style is great for players who tend to use Tremolo speed as an accent.  [BW:  The Ventilator Remote calls this MODE 5.  This is my personal favorite when playing guitar.  It's also great for the 'Jimmy Smith' vibe.]

760 STYLE:  In later Leslies with a remote switch or preamp, the Stop function overrides any setting on the speed switch.  This is how 760 style works.  Stop is always Stop, and the Speed switch controls the speed only when the Ventilator isn't in Stop.  [BW:  The Ventilator Remote calls this MODE 2.]

NOTE:  These pedals may look like other floor pedals, but they're wired differently.  The standard pedal used in guitar amps for tremolo-reverb or channel-boost will not work with an original Ventilator without rewiring.

For those who like to keep it simple, we sell a single foot switch that just provides Slow/Fast control.  It's also available as a momentary switch, sitting in Chorale until held down.

 [Why are the single and double the same price?  Both switches start from standard pedals, but the single pedal needs added parts.  It also takes more time to make.]

Need an extra power supply for your Ventilator?  (We all forget things at gigs!)  This rugged replacement sitching supply is lightweight, and will fit nicely in your gear bag, or in the back of a rack, to give you the flexibility to take your Ventilator to all your gigs and recording projects, without having to unplug and coil wires.  Or maybe you just need a spare cable for the one your drummer hit with a falling cymbal?  We sell those, too.

These supplies work with all of the Ventilator models:  the original Ventilator, a.k.a. the 'Vent I'; the mini-VENT (organ and guitar models); the Ventilator II; and the mini-VENT II.

Note:  This power supply is not the same one that ships with the Ventilator.  However, it's of high quality, well oversized for the job, and will not cause hum or damage the Ventilator in any way.  It will also power other devices that need 1.2A or less 12V power, using a center-positive barrel plug.

 

  Ventilator Power Supply + 5-ft power cord    $23

Spare 5-ft power cord    $4
