Set ’em and forget ’em though, because these things are hard to turn. The Mic Placement control governs the effect’s depth. Using either my Deluxe Reverb or Reverend Goblin 5/15, the Rotation Single emitted warm, drippy, and believable swirl. When you kick the Fast/Slow switch, the speed slowly ramps up (or down) like a real rotary speaker. Vibey for sure. The Overdrive function is handy for pushing the modulated swirl up in the mix, but I never even bothered with it, because I dug the Rotation’s straight tones the most. The pedal’s fast speeds work excellent for Beatle-esque rhythm parts or warbly SRV and Jimmie Vaughan excursions, while the slow speeds are thick and rich like a good chocolate milkshake. Hell, the Rotation Single can make a compelling argument to kick your chorus pedal to the curb with your acid washed jeans—it’s that fat. That’s why it receives an Editor’s Pick Award.
Kudos:Gets real close to the real rotating thing. Fat and soupy.
Concerns:Trimpots are tough to turn.
