SISME Leslie-type Cab - anyone heard of them?

    Our band practices at our drummer's studio. He has a Leslie-type cab in there, by a company called SISME - 18" Driver plus a rotating horn, built-in 100R RMS valve amp.

    I usually play my bass through this thing, and it sounds AMAZING. I played through a lot of amps in my day, but never had something sound so nice, not even real vintage SVTs.

    Does anyone have any info on these? I'd be really curious to find out more.

    Sorry no info, I just wanted to say that I used a powered Leslie-type cab for band practice too for some months (with the horn switched off). It was made by ELKO as far as I can remember and had a very 'thick' and old-school sound, a bit muddy though.
    IMHO this can be a very useful solution for rehearsal room equipment, but I still prefer up-to-date bass gear (more power, more clarity, better portability)

    No, it has 2 standard 1/4" inputs. The owner lost the Leslie pedal, so I am using it as a powered cab right now.
