I was wondering (and hoping this is the right forum) what kind of effects/amps David Gilmour used in Another Brick in the Wall Pt 2. Most specifically the solo.

Thanks in advance!

TS, whenever I see your username, I misread it as "isuckhardcocks."

Just had to get that out there.

well, you've just picked the most difficult gilmour song (tonewise). He recorded it with a les paul with p90's straight into the mixing board (no amp or effects whatsoever). But than he didn't like the sound of it so he fed the recorded signal through some rack units and an amp and recorded it again. There's no way you can imitate his sound this way. You can do it with compression, a warm and a bit crunchy overdrive and a VERY subtle flanger. There's no delay on the album version.

I was looking at that site, but I found no specifics on that song.

Anywho, thanks for the (I suppose) relatively speedy response! One thing I have noticed is the tone David Gilmour gets is very unique, which is why I love it so much.

ANYWHO!

I'll fiddle around with the effects you mentioned. And again, thanks for the help!

just a little advice: the biggest part of Gilmour's tone comes from his (big fat) fingers. Having a good vibrato and accurate bends is crucial.

Guitar World did a big feature on this Last year(?) It said he used his famous Black Strat with very light warm overdrive through a '72 MXR Phase 90 into a either a fender or Selmer Combo amp (I cant remember which)

basically a p-90 equipped les paul, with the neck pickup on, di'ed then like whoever said above routed into some other amps, some heavy compression, and I believe on EVERYTHING on the Wall David's got the EHX Electric Mistress going, but in like the lowest possible settings.
