Watch the David Gilmour online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
David Gilmour's pedal setup is quite complex but we can get into his realm without too much difficulty. His basic setup is pretty straight forward, as you will see. It is extremely important when tweaking your pedals and amps is to do it at gig volume or as close as you can get. The reason for this is the ear hears things differently at different volumes. For example, bass frequencies are less audible at lower volumes so when you crank your amp to gig levels it will most likely be too bassy. This is called the Fletcher-Munson Curve. Now you can impress your friends with that one! Also reverbs and delays are much more noticeable at louder volumes.
