    Any compression was probably a combination of his boost, amp and studio compressor.

    One thing that really shocked my was when I realized how much the Colorsound Treble & Bass Booster was used on DSOTM/WYWH. Check out some Gilmour inspired demos of the Throbak Overdrive Boost, you'll hear that tone pop up a lot from him.

    If you want Floyd tones up to and including WYWH, you'd be better off with a Fuzz Face.
    This is pretty spot on. I have both pedals and neither are good at matching the eras outside of the respective periods they were used in. The muff can do animals, the wall, everything then on. A fuzz face with BC108/109 Silicon transistors will work fine with anything from Meddle to Wish You Were Here. If you're going earlier floyd do a germanium fuzz. Note that a lot of the Reissue EHX muff pedals are not as close to the originals. Better off buying a clone like a Vick Audio Ram's Head or an Electric Orange Pig-Hoof.

    Who cares about copping Gilmour tones? You need both and experiment with your own tones and see which you prefer.

    What Wampler would be the Gilmour-inspired fuzz?

    That and to have something at hand he didn't bother about to throw at Roger Waters when things heated up between the two of them.

    For me personally, if you're after Gilmour's tone (and who isn't, he sounds the deal!) I would use the Big Muff instead of the Fuzz face, to me that's the one that pops up in my mind when you mention Gilmour's tone.

    He used a HM-2 and I saw a Digital Metalizer on some of his later boards, not sure about a 'Zone though.

Skreddy, Wampler Velvet, Buffalo, Keeley, etc. They make it easier to plug and play and get good results.

    Regarding the Phase 95, it'll do decently close for a lot of the Uni-Vibe tones, but Any Colour is really a unique sound. I think you've got rotating speaker and Vibe going on there. A Phase 90 set to stun will give a tone that you can use, but it depends how close you want to get.



    No.... not sure if this is a joke, so in case if not, it was a HM-2 pedal.
    Haha you're right sorry. Still tho

    You can't just say that and not explain more [emoji23]

    Big muff followed by a tube driver.

    Check gilmourish.com and this http://www.kitrae.net/music/David_Gi...uilding_2.html

    Phase 95 should work.
