NOTE - I have listed the gear and settings I use in most cases, for reference, but note that the tones may not exactly match your rig, depending on which amp you use, your guitar, and pickups, and fingers :) I am not a Gilmour/Pink Floyd gear expert, so your results may vary.

VIDEOS, SOUNDCLIPS, AND LESSONS

Video and audio clips of me playing various solos for tone, gear, and learning reference. Most of these feature one of the many Electro Harmonix Big Muffs or clones of this famous distortion box, “The Tone from Heaven”. I have owned or played just about every version of the Big Muff. I don't play solos completely note-for-note, but close enough. All are played through a '65 Fender Twin Reverb reissue. Most of the backing tracks are from Gilmourish.com.

CASTELLORIZATION from On An Island / David Gilmour - Example of the Green Sovtek Big Muff tone.
