TopGuitar is proud to announce that the Ventilator II guitar effect pedal from Neo Instruments was reviewed in the September issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The product was delivered for review by B4 Distribution.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“Neo Instruments succeeded to deliver a very faithful replica of the Leslie rotating speaker sound; numerous praises coming from all over the world, from professional press and musicians alike, speak for themselves.”

“Ventilator II was created with active players in mind, and as such, prepared for the hardships of touring.”

“Straight out of the box, without even reading through the manual, you get a handful of useful sounds which then you can just tailor to suit your most detailed needs.”

“Ventilator II is dubbed the best Leslie rotating speaker simulator out there and after trying it out yourself, it’s really hard to argue with that opinion.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
