    Cool! So is David Gilmour replacing Adrian Vandenberg or Steve Vai on the Whitesnake tour?

    It's after moments of introspection like these that I come to the conclusion that I really, really hate David Gilmour

    Probably no way to know, BUT if you use the "BACK" link from the page, then go into "effects" and page down you can see the prices for effects...like guitar splitter to about 300 some dollars. OD unit for 500 dollars, etc.

    Another page from the main page "True Bypass" is a very short, very excellent lesson on why it is ridiculous to get hung up on True-bypass, and why he doesn't use it. Mainly, loading of the pickups, and volume/tone differences with no effects on and an effect on.

    The only part I have trouble with non-true-bypass, is when the buffering makes you lose contorl of OD with guitar vol pot.

    I love the Cornish stuff. The best thing about it: I don´t feel GAS. It´s just too expensive to even *think* about a board like that.
    If I had all the money in the world, I would, but until then.....

    Great stuff, great concept.... :AOK

    I think you used the European delimiters.
    Probably everyone knew what you meant, but in the US it would
    be $ 15,000.00

    Not complaining, just thought I'd mention it. It took me a long time to get used to the Euro-way.

    Ok, here we go... this is for discussion purposes mind you all...

    I'm not sure why, from a design stand point, it would make sense to have all those effects bundled up into one single unit like that. What happens when one effect in the chain ***** the bed in the middle of a set? With tubes involved, you never know, although I'm sure Cornish has come up with some gadgetry to compensate. I gues the only real fail safe is if you have more money than god and can have at least 1 or 2 as a backup (and Gilmour surely does have the coin).

    My $.02 . I still want one though. That makes me $14,999.98 short!

    I am sure Gilmour will also have a spare unit built by Cornish. You have some responsibilty when playing in front of 10.000 to 50.000 people, you know?

    I am working in the professional touring business and from my experience I can tell that 95% (maybe even more) of all technical failures during a show are based on bad cables/cable connections. I am pretty sure the Cornish-way of putting together a floor board is safer than anything else. YMMV.

    Keep in mind...even if money were in abundance and needn't be considered, MOST of us here would be unhappy with such a pedalboard, because it would stop up our GAS.

    :) And, admit it....the fun thing about GAS is hearing about some new, fantastic pedal, reading up on it, ordering it, getting it, shoving some previously loved pedal off the pedalboard (at least during the honeymoon) and rearranging our pedals. Right?

    So for most of us, even if it were FANTASTIC, and the effects couldn't be beat, we'd get bored after 4 months.

    What a site. What a pedalboard. Wow.

    If all that doesn't just put you in awe of it all, well, nothing will.

    Wow.
