That will produce a dynamic and smooth tone that adds a bit of bite when you hit the strings hard but stays nice and clean otherwise. Haynes died in August of Hopefully this will be a starting off point if someone wishes to research further to see if this is the same Fender Stratocaster serial number that Gilmore now owns. There are several rumours and legends about this guitar.
More here. Not sure if this is still news, but I was always wondering, if Seymour also wound this pickup in addition to the neck pickup. It had had a neck pick-up added before I had it which I later changed for a Strat neck pick-up. It seems that David has the Whammy ahead of all the other pedals. So… The compression how ever much comes post whammy.
As well as the rest of the effects chain. It takes away most of the synthetic sound. I have a whammy 5 and it seems to work well that way. One question. Reeves custom 50 or Hi-tone 50??? Hi Bjorn. What is your advice for affordable pedal choices to drive my Analogman bc, going into an old DMM and into a Fender tube, in order to get close to the old echoes pompeii tone at bedroom volumes?
Thanks for any help. Check out the Vick Audio Overdriver :. Thanks, was looking at that one. Going back-and-forth between that or a new mxrs graphic eq with volume as well as gain boosts. Wondering if the tone-shaping abilities from the eq would help dial in the Pompeii tone on my small Fender tube, and also with the volume and the gain sliders… wondering how they may act as a boost transparent as well as to add some gain overdrive maybe?
Your thoughts, compared to the more traditional combination of powerbooster plus fuzz? Hi Bjorn! Maybe you can help me: are the frets on the black strat at Pompei bigger? Thank you. But a lot of knowledge about amps and overdrives, and etc that I learned here has helped so much in my next tone quest. He seems to moving back to the more classic Gilmour tones that we all grew up with and learned to love.
I do want to point out that I feel its funny that while Trey is expanding his sound with new pedals and amps like Gilmour did from or so , and Gilmour seems to have gone back to his roots after his exploration. Sorry for the long message my dude, hope you been well!! Hi Clark! Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for stopping by! David would change what pedals he used basically from night to night depending on mood and how his rig sounded in each venue.
Most of his tones is either a single Tube Driver or a combination of two. All three are set up with different amount of gain. As you know he would also use a Big Muff on certain parts, like Comf Numb and Sorrow but the majority of what you hear are the Tube Drivers. Thanks for everything so far. Hey… You might want to pass the word to all the bedroom players. And I can come pretty damn close to Davids tone. Not dead on but totally awesome for someone just tinkering around. I have a question about how David used his amps on tour.
You mentioned he incorporates a combination of his Hiwatt and Alessandro heads. Is he using the Alessandro as a preamp or running the two amps simultaneously?
I recall reading somewhere before that he uses the Allesandro as a preamp sometimes, and if he does, I am curious on the specific signal chain implementation? If he was only using a mono setup does this mean he would use the Hiwatt for some songs and the Allesandro for others or were they blended?
Thanks again!! Greg Phillinganes mimics at the end of Shine on you crazy diamond was absolutely out of place. He did use much less delay on this tour and some of the settings barely have any mix or volume. This to create the true live experience and sound. I just saw the bluray deluxe edition of the live in pompeii. I saw DG Live in Pula in , and the lineup was quite different, there was Jon Carin to keyboards and additional guitar. Hi Bjorn, I cannot thank you enough for making our lives so much easier!
Help would be massively, massively appreciated! Hi Thomas! Thanks for the kind words! I recommend reading through the Big Muff tone guide and the amp tone guide first. Let me know if you still need help. That makes about 7 or 8 such pedals for me now…. How does he do it?
Am I missing something really easy on this? I love both songs and would like to get a Whammy pedal at some point, but only if I can make it duplicate what David is playing. Thanks in advance for any advice you might have on this! What model did you try? It sounds much smoother than the later models. Still, if you listen to the high pitched notes in particular, you can definitely hear some of that harmonizing going on. Hi Bjorn, I have question concerning the delay. You write that David use a mono rig that is split into 2 different amplifiers.
So why did he use 2 Flight Time Delay and 2 Chrono delay for mono application? Did he use only one preset on each and call it in loops? So why not with the FT? In any case, thanks for all the informations and tricks that you share with us for so long.
Hi, happy new year! As far as I can see his rig is in mono. Back in the mid 70s he would use a silicon Fuzz Faze and there sounds to be some dealy coming from the Binson with possibly ms. Has he changed his string gauge or something? He sounds a bit thin in some places, especially on the bridge pick up. Idk, it sounds a bit odd since he usually has a nice fat tone. Checking your listening experience is always a good place to start and there could be a number of reasons why you perceive his tone as less fat but he does have a different setup compared to Pulse and Island and his amps are set for more grit and presence now.
It sounds out of this world, is it the doppolas? Maybe is it the whammy? Have you seen the BBC recently Gilmour interview?
He uses a new guitar. And can you identify that Tweed? As you say, it looks too small for a Bassman and too big for a Champ. The Deluxe has a bigger front panel. Thanks Bjorn! Im finding that I like that tone much better than when he uses his hiwatts, do know of any modifications one can do to a cub12 to make it more tweed-ish?
Depends on what you mean by Tweed… If you roll back the mids you should get closer to a Bassman and you can also use modelling pedals for a more Fenderish character but the amp is what it is. Experiment and try different combinations of tubes and pedals :. Hey Bjorn, thanks for your great work. Comfortably Numb solo at minute — one of the typical licks — between the bend and the pull-off, what is the little detail — which string is it one can hear? I was never able to play that lick as well as David.
Are you? Best regards from Oslo, Matthias. Bend the G string on the 9th fret one whole note, pick the B string on the 7th fret and pull off the E string on the 10th string. Bjorn, a General question: How do you know all those things? So what is your secret? You learn how to spot things and listen for the details.
Fantastic job as always, Bjorn! I really missed the Red Strat on Sorrow! Or I misheard? Hi Bjorn, David used only muff pedal without boosted with the tube driver in the heavy dist tone? Thanks for all the work you have put into this site through all the years. I have some questions and a I see a few things that are not quite right, so I thought I would help out:. There were 3 WEM cabs earlier in the tour.
He said David only uses the BT in the studio. I think that dark brown one has been mis-identified for years. If you go back and look at Astoria security videos from there is one with a dark brown case and blond from panel.
I think that is the original Bluetick. David also used it with Jeff Beck in I looked over the signal chains for each song at Pompeii posted on the GG forum, and those contradict what you list, so I wonder which is correct?
I assume it was programmed with pre-sets. Also, sometimes Tube Driver 3 was paired with EQ 2, and sometimes 3. Hi Thomas, sorry for my late reply. Thanks for the info! Coming Back To Life — On An Island — Today — Sorrow — Run Like Hell — Comfortably Numb — Hi Res Audio From Blu-ray 1 5. One Of These Days — Part 2 Time — Breathe In The Air reprise — Hi Res Audio From Blu-ray 2 5.
Astronomy Domine — The speed can be adjusted with separate controls. This adds to the presence and slightly more aggressive tones ha had on the tour but it also makes it difficult to point out accurate delay settings. Some of the songs also feature complex patches or combined units for different textures and simulation of the old Binson multiple head tones.
Here are some generic settings based on earlier tours: — ms — ms Run Like Hell: ms Slides, Comfortably Numb, Sorrow: ms.
