How To Gilmour-ize Your Strat, equipment technical info & images

Signal Flow
The Guitars Gilmour's main stage guitar is a USA 57 Vintage Reissue Strat fitted with EMG-SA pickups. He has also installed the EMG-EXG expander & SPC midrange presence controls. Apart from the electrics, the only other custom feature is a shortened tremolo arm so that he can keep it in his picking hand more comfortably while playing. Other guitars used live are an Esquire Telecaster in dropped D tuning for Run Like Hell, two Jensen lap steel guitars one tuned to E B E G B E for One Of These Days & the other tuned to D G D G B E for The Great Gig In The Sky. He also uses two Gibson J-200 Celebrity acoustics one tuned in standard & the other in D A D G A D for Poles Apart & a Gibson Chet Atkins Electro Classical. Both the Jensen Lap Steels & the acoustic guitars are fitted with EMG-H pickups. (These are basically a single coil pickup in a humbucker cap). Strings On the Strats Gilmour uses GHS Boomers with a customized gauge of (.010 .012 .016 .028 .038 .048) On the acoustics he uses Ernie Ball Earthwound Light's. How To Gilmour-ize Your Strat To go along with David Gilmour's taste for pristine Strat tone is his use of EMG active electronic (i.e. battery powered) pickups. Each of his Stratocasters is loaded with low impedance EMG-SA single coils, which he beefs up with two more tone modules: the EXG mid-cut/expander & SPC mid booster. As far as the SA pickups go, they have Alnico magnets which have a little more mid range than the ceramic S magnets. He also has the SPC midrange boost control on there which produces more of a singing humbucker tone. Finally, theres the EXG which David uses alot for rhythm, since it really helps define the notes, especially when there's a little distortion on and he's moving chord voicings around. The EXG works like a V configuration on a graphic EQ when you turn it up, the midrange gets cut, while the bass & treble get boosted. The SPC is where you really here the Gilmour sound emerge. Turn the SPC all the way up & you get that thick bluesy sound used in Shine On. The Analogue Footpedals
Footpedals

(A) Boss CS-2 Compression/Sustainer.

These are no longer available new from Roland. You can only purchase the CS-3 which (to my ear) does not sound as smooth as the CS-2.

(B) Pro Co. Rat II Distortion.

The first generation Rat's distortion, filter & volume knobs yield various Marshally distortion tones.

(C) Cornish Big Muff.

Pete Cornish custom Big Muff. (looks like Pete has taken an original Big Muff and housed it in a custom box). I don't know if this has been modified in any other way.

(D) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to be used in conjunction with the Rat distortion pedal.

(E) Cornish Soft Sustain.

This is obviously a Pete Cornish custom effect. Notice the combination of the GE-7 graphic EQ sliders & the knobs for sustain & volume.

(F) Sovtek Big Muff II.

The Big Muff is a very heavy-vibed fuzz with volume, tone & sustain controls. The muff sounds huge & powerful despite it's feeble tone control range & is looser & more gargantuan than say a Pro Co. Rat II.

(G) Chandler Tube Driver #2.

The Tube Driver offers lots of tight girthy gain and has an openness that sets it apart from other distortion boxes. Features high/low EQ, tube drive & output controls. These later became known as Tube Works Tube Driver.

(H) MXR Dynacomp Compressor.

The Dynacomp has a natural sounding expansion & a nice bright tone to it.

(I) Ibanez CP-9 Compressor.

(J) Boss Metalizer.

No longer available new from Roland.

(K) Chandler Tube Driver #1.

The Tube Driver offers lots of tight girthy gain and has an openness that sets it apart from other distortion boxes. Features high/low EQ, tube drive & output controls. This later became known as Tube Works Tube Driver.

(L) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to boost the top & bottom ranges. Labelled T&B

(M) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to boost the bass ranges. Labelled BASS

(N) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to boost the mid ranges. Labelled MID The Rack
With Dave Gilmour's rack system we meet a marriage of technologies, old & new. He has always exhibited a preference for older, analogue effects but has had Pete Cornish create a switching system which guarantees ease of use with optimum, low noise performance. The Rack

(A) Furman PL-8 Power Conditioner And Light Controller.

I can only guess that this controls the lights on top of the rack so Dave can see the pedals.

(B) TC. Electronics TC-2290 Dynamic Digital Delay + Effects Control Processor.

This is Dave's primary delay unit. He uses this on most songs.

(C) Uni-Vibe.

The Uni-Vibe unit featues volume & intensity controls, a chorus/vibrato switch & sepearate speed controls for the slow or fast speed options. It also requires a seperate foot switch pedal for fast or slow. Gilmour does not use the chorus option! This effect was originally a footpedal, however Gilmour had his longtime technician Phil Taylor make a rack system out of it. He even had the old logo embossed on the face plate of the new rack.

(D) Digitech IPS-33B Super Harmony Machine.

Diatonic pitch shifter.

(E) Lexicon PCM-70 Digital Effects Processor.

Dave uses the PCM-70 to store the circular delay sounds you hear in Shine On & Time. Because it has a multi tap function it can pretty accurately duplicate the kind of echo Dave used to get from his old Binson echo unit.

(F) MXR Delay System II.

This is another rack system that began life as a footpedal. Phil also added a digital readout that he says is really nowhere close to being an accurate indication of delay time.

(G) Phil Taylor Custom Rack.

This is yet another custom made rack from footpedals. It contains the following effects.

Boss CE-2 Chorus

The original chorus from Boss has rate & depth knobs & sounds sweet, rich & dynamic. There are two CE-2's loaded into this rack one is marked Mono Chorus & the other Left Chorus. (The left chorus is inserted in the signal path for the left channel of Dave's amp setup).

Electric Mistress

The Electric Mistress has rate, range & colour controls, plus a filter matrix switch. This is sort of a bizzarre sounding flanger that gets extremely detuned & twisted.

Tremulator

The Tremulator has speed and depth controls.

(H) Dynachord CL5222 Leslie Simulator.

(I) Samson UHF Dual Receiver.

(J) Peterson Strobe Tuner.

Other Effects & Equipment
There are a few footpedals & other items which are not pictured or part of Dave's current live rig but have been and still are used by him in the studio.

MXR Phase 90

This was MXR's first effect and only has a speed knob that yields complex, swirly phase textures with silky highs & lots of vocal inflection. Also does decent rotating speaker imitations at higher speeds.

Arbiter Fuzz Face

The classic of classic fuzzes sounds big, deep & bad. The Fuzz Face takes you from clean to insanity with a mere twiddle of your guitars volume knob.

Boss HM-2 Heavy Metal Distortion

An 80's classic Gilmour used on About Face (notably at the end of Murder). It delivers incredibly gutsy grind & tons of deep bass boost. Features low/high and colour mix controls.

Maestro Rover

The Maestro Rover looks like a late 1950's NASA satellite (I will try and get a scan of this thing) but it's a rotating speaker designed to go between your guitar and your amp. This sure fire attention getter has amp & instrument inputs & features volume, speed, slow & fast controls. A crossover routes the upper frequencies through the Rover's amplifier to the rotating speaker, while the lower frequencies are sent to your stage amp.

Orange Treble/Bass Boost.

Heil Voice Box

The Midi Foot Controller
This Bob Bradshaw designed pedalboard is used to select individual or different preset combinations of effects. This doesn't do the actual switching though. The left side of Dave's rack unit contains his Pete Cornish custom built switcher, which has 24 sends & returns & uses gold plated relays to turn individual effects on and off. In addition to this, it also sends standard MIDI program numbers to the various MIDI processors that are contained in his rack (such as the Lexicon). It can also send almost anything he wants to the rack, such as a delay time or whatever. I'm not sure if he uses any of these features, but it's there.

FX Facts
Despite the apparent complexity of Dave Gilmour's set up, the actual contents of each track may come as something of a surprise. Essentially his sound is fairly clean, choosing different distortion units to add their characteristic sound to his signal. As an example, to reproduce the track Money from Dark Side Of The Moon live in concert, Gilmour uses this effects combination.

Main Riff: Pete Cornish Soft Sustain with Chandler Tube Driver #2.

Solo: Boss CS-2 Compressor with Chandler Tube Driver #1, Sovtek Big Muff & TC Electronics digital delay.

Solo (Dry Sound): Chandler Tube Driver #1 with Pro Co. Rat II Distortion. The Amplification

Preamp

After journeying through the rack system the signal meets an alembic F2-B bass guitar preamp. This has been modified with an extra tube, lowered output impedance & a different capacitor to help cut the low end.

Amps

Gilmour has always been a fan of Hi-Watt amps, tending to use AP-100 watt heads on stage and combo's in the studio. Live three of the heads are used as power amps & another three are used as slaves. All use Mullard E-34 valves which are desperately difficult to get a hold of these days, but Floyd head of backline Phil Taylor still has a cupboard full!

(A) Right channel output to 4x12's 1+10 8 ohm.

I am guessing that (1+10) refers to channel inputs on a mixer i.e. channel 1 left, channel 10 right.

(B) Left channel output to 4x12's 2+9 8 ohm.

Again (2+9) could be channel 2 right, channel 9 left. If this is the case then Dave could have, for instance, channels 1+2 as a stereo pair for the Marshalls & channels 9+10 as a stereo pair for the WEM's.

(C) Spare AP-100.

(D) Output to Heil Voice Box via Pete Cornish Dummy Load Box 8 ohm.

(E) Output to Doppola's 87, 88 8 ohm.

(F) Output to Doppola 89 8 ohm.

Speaker Cabinets & Doppola's

Speaker Cabinets

The right channel Hi-Watt powers a WEM 4x12 which is loaded with Fane Cresendo speakers and a Marshall loaded with Celestion speakers. A second Hi-Watt does the same thing for the left channel which also carries a chorused signal from a Boss CE-2 Chorus. (See Footpedals Incorporated Into A Rack Space). In the second rack, one AP-100 feeds the Jim Dunlop Heil Voice Box, another feeds Doppola's 87 & 88 (8 ohm) & a third feeds Doppola 89 (16 ohm).

Doppola's

These rotating speaker units were designed by Phil Taylor & Paul Leader to provide Gilmour with that 'Leslie' effect on his guitar. Leslie cabinets themselves might have seemed the obvious choice, but Gilmour was after a slightly different sound. In the studio he had been using Maestro Rover units which are revolving full range speakers but they are too low powered for live use and so the Doppola's were born. Three units are used on stage each loaded with two six inch 100 watt drivers.

(A) Marshall 4x12 cabinet with Celestion speakers.

(B) WEM 4x12 cabinet with Fane Cresendo speakers.

(C) Custom Doppola rotating speakers.

dave's strings

so david use ghs boomers on hi strat. i have try these strings with a similar gauge and i have verify that these are very bright but less flexible when i use bhending. so i use d'addario and i don't think that david use these type of strings. what do you think abuot this?

Re: dave's strings

Realy is very dificult to compare diferent strings, because on depend to the guitar too (kind of bridge, neck, etc...) and anothers external factors (is not the same to play at house, and to play in always very hot stage ambience (for the ligths, equipment, etc...) I also use D'addario whit my EMG/DG-20 Fender Strat, but a very special gauge: the 0.95 (is in the middle of 0.9 and 0.10). I recomended for you because are a very good and hot sound and is not very hard like the 0.10 gauge. You can sound like DG and not destroyer yours fingers!!!!

Strat help

Hey guys, I just bought a new Fender Standard Strat. I notice that the bridge is propped way up high! WHy is that? Everyone says I need to lower it...how do I lower it?

Re: Strat help

You lower it by opening the back panel of your guitar and turning the screws connected to the springs in a clockwise direction (righty-tighty) until the bridge is about 1/8 inch high.

: Hey guys, I just bought a new Fender Standard Strat. I notice that the bridge is propped way up high! WHy is that? Everyone says I need to lower it...how do I lower it?

Re: Strat help

Did you change the string gauge? Was this bought new. Srats usually come with .09's on it. I feel .09's are too thin so I have to switch to .010's. The problem with strats is that if you change the gauge the bridge popsup like you describe. Once this happen you have to have the guitar setup. You can go in and turn the screws which will raise your springs and bring the bridge back down but once you do this your intonation will be fucked. You will notic that the guitar doesn't feel right. You need to have someone set it up right.

Well

Well when I bought it it came with rather light Fender Super Bullets. I changed them to a medium gaged GHS boomers...

Re: Well

Yeah, you have to have it re-setup to be able to handle that gauge. Then once it's set, next time you change your strings keep the gauge thats on them and change them one at a time so that the bridge doesn't go out of whack again.

AND

Oh yeah, and when i changed my strings after I first got my guitar, I took off all the strings at once...
Couldn't I just unscrew the back and adjust the bridge again?

Re: AND

If you bought it new, it must have come with extra springs (or replacement strings that are harder). Don't forget to experiment with adding/replacing strings, as sometimes this is necessary when you increase the string gauge.

By the way, an alternative to restringing one at a time is to block the bridge in place from behind with a thin block of wood or something. I keep a wedge-shaped piece of wood just for this purpose and stick it in the back every time I restring or adjust the guitar's action. It really makes things much easier. Leo

Fuzz face or Big Muff?

Hi!
Should i buy Big Muff or Fuzz Face.
I want to create an early 1969-1973 era Pink Floyd sound.
Thanks.
Paltsa

Re: Fuzz face or Big Muff?

Early distortion would be a Fuzz-face. The Big Muff wasn't around until 1975 or so. He used both a Fuzz-face and a Big Muff in his '76 rig.

Wireless System

I am interested in getting a wireless system for my guitar but I don't know what I should be looking for. What type does David Gilmour use? Any help would be great!

Re: Wireless System

Gilmour used a Schaffer Vega wireless system on the Wall tour but now he uses a Samson system. I'm not sure about which models he used.

DG20 on strat '57

i have buy a fender stat vintage '57 made in american and the emg pro-serie DG20,
but these pickup are too big and i must modify the guitar.
is it possible?

Re: DG20 on strat '57

Yes, you must modify the guitar, and yes, it is possible.

If your problem is the same one that I had, then your pickups sit too high and touch the strings when the strings vibrate, correct?

What you'll need is a hammer and chisel. Measure how much lower the pickups need to get, and simply dig deeper into where the pickups sit. A couple millimeters should suffice. I did this, and the everything fits just fine. Go slow and careful to not damage the guitar! You're not dealing with a Squire here!!

Of course, next you're going to have the problem of the number and locations of screw holes not matching. For this, I simply bought a new pickguard and transferred all the electronics over from the DG20. I didn't like the cheesy pearloid pickguard anyway :) Hope this helps.

Gilmour Delay???

Man I HAVE to get some sort of delay pedal. I have been looking on Ebay and stuff but I really don't know what to get. Do I get analog or digital? Which represents Mr. Gilmour more for both new and old Floyd? Does anyone have any reccomendations for me? I have a mistress, muff, phase 90, american strat with stock neck and mid pickups and a dimarzio fast track 2 in the bridge all going into a marshall vs65 combo with NO delay pedal. Delay is essential yet I don't have it. Give me a hand fella's. Thank you!

- Chris Failla

Re: Gilmour Delay???

Hi,
I use the Line6 DL4 (16 delay types).
Is great for Pink Floyd Songs (Ecos/Reverse/Memory Man/Boss
are efects presents in this stomp box).

Re: Gilmour Delay???

Try picking up a lexicon reflex quality delays and verbs at low cost also pick up a compressor pedel ideal for shine on

Re: Gilmour Delay???

Re: Gilmour Delay???

You are quite a hero for surviving this long without a delay - what a feat!

From personal experience, I'd recommend a Boss DD-3. They're not that expensive on eBay.

just get a Boss digital delay pedal. You will be all set, trust me.

Best/Worst Floyd Albums???

What are the best and worse Pink Floyd albums, and why???

Re: Best/Worst Floyd Albums???

The best Floyd album for me is Animals! It just takes you for that endless ride right form the start. It has the perfect mix of acoustics and features by far the best playing from all ecspecially Gilmours leads and the drums. It's like Prog rock... Awesome album!!! The worst Floyd album for me is prob Ummagumma. Not because I dont like it but because I just couldn't listen to it anymore without going insane! I love this album but it just brings back too much crazieness from my youth.. Anyway I love all floyd albums...

Re: Best/Worst Floyd Albums???

The best for sure IS Animals! Second best I'd say is Dark Side of the Moon followed by Wish you were here or Obscured by clouds. The Wall would come next, then More, then Saucer, then Piper. Ummagumma just isn't quite there to me. All the post Wall stuff just plain sucks I think. You can totally see a change in sound...not even Floyd sounding.

Gilmours efeects 1975-1977 era?

Hi!
Does anyone knows what effects David Gilmour used in 1975-1977 era.
In some Pink Floyd books have a pictures where David is having huge pedalboard.
I would really like to know what those effects are in the board.
Thanks

Yamaha DG-Stomp Floyd Sounds

I am looking at buying a Yamaha DG-Stomp multi fx unit and would like to know how easy it is to get a good David Gilmour sound out of it. Any suggested settings? Any help or info would be appreciated!

Re: Yamaha DG-Stomp Floyd Sounds

Make sure it has. delay, compression, phase, tremelo, distortion, wah, flange.

Re: Yamaha DG-Stomp Floyd Sounds

I'd stick with stomp boxes, as Gilmour said, "you can't get an accurate sound out of Multi Fx's that you can get from stomp boxes."

: Make sure it has. delay, compression, phase, tremelo, distortion, wah, flange.

Twin reverb selection

I'm shopping for a Twin Reverb, and I'd like some guidance from those who are familiar.

First of all, what is the big deal that people make about silverface vs blackface?

Is there a desirable year range (60's, 70's, etc) that I should target, or are they all the same?

Anyone know about the particulars of the Twin Reverb(s) that Gilmour used (uses)? Did He make any modifications?

Thanks a million in advance! Leo

Re: Twin reverb selection

Well, the one Gilmour used was a 1965 Twin Reverb, which I also own. The difference between the ones sold during that year and the reissues are the point to point wiring. Not a big difference, slighty noticable, the reissues should be just fine, except they're also EXTREMELY LOUD. Loud enough to use by itself and compare up to Marshall Fullstacks cranked. You can lower the wattage by taking out some tubes which can help, and I think there's something else you can do....can't remember, talk to someone at a music store. I really like this amp a lot. It's a lot more solid and crisp than the hiwatts, and the price is a lot nicer. Countless musicians have used these, such as just about every surf band during that time period, Doobie Brothers (listen to that crispness during the Johnston era)...and contless other bands...great amp

Simulating leslie with mistress

I've heard that the Mistress (well, flangers in general) can be used a Leslie simulator. Has anyone done this, and if so, at what setting have you found it to work best?

Re: Simulating leslie with mistress

: I've heard that the Mistress (well, flangers in general) can be used a Leslie simulator. Has anyone done this, and if so, at what setting have you found it to work best?

I never heard that but you can get a tremelo pedal and simulate a leslie pretty well.

Echoes in Pompeji

hi there

in echoes-intro from the "live in pompeii"-video david slides up and down the fingerboard with his bottleneck without picking.
i´ve tried all different kinds of effect-setup, but my strings remain silent.
how can i make my strat sing like this?

thanx, vini

Re: Echoes in Pompeji

You need some delay.. turn the feedback way up... make sure you pickup is in the bridge position.. give yourself a little extra volume.. with your right hand hold down the low E to the B string leaving open the high E.... hold your slide over the fret not sure which one right now try around the 17th-19th...and slowly start sliding up and down right on the fret... move the slide to approprite frets till you have echoes pompeii. Importnat factor is you have to use a metal slide and not glass or it wont work! you also need to use the bridge pickup.. If you need the fretting positions I can give them to you just let me know.. also let me know when you try it if it works or not.
peace

Re: Echoes in Pompeji

There's another question about ECHOES (about the middle section): How do Dave imitate the bird singing or seagulls with his guitar?
Do he connect it with a VCS 3?

Re: Echoes in Pompeji

He uses a slide really high up on the strings and loads of reverb.

Re: Echoes in Pompeji

or use your right hand with the slide and cover the strings with your left hand.. Whatever feels better.

keep talking

hi all, my question is what kind of fx dave used on "keep talking" from division bell in last solo. i think that's any variation of talker...
