    ok so im playing a keeley rat into a clean amp...any suggestions on a compressor that would do the job to get dave Gilmour's lead sound.

    im thinking:
    -Keeley
    -analogman jucier, bi-comprosser or comprosser
    -Carl Martin
    -anything else?

    I'd recommend the Diamond Compressor. It's a very transparent effect that won't give you those stereotypical squishy comp settings but very light, smooth compression. Check it out

    A lot of David's sustain is also due to EMG-SA's...
    which have a natural bloom to them,
    which works great with a good compressor...

    Barge Concept RC-2, or Diamond Comp. I love them both.

    Currently, he's using the Demeter Compulator.

    I used to use a Keeley comp for Gilmour tones when I had my "Gilmour rig". But tga-3 is correct, he's currently using a demeter compressor, so you may want to give that one a try.

    It's not very known....

    But I suggest the FX-ENG Mirage.
    It really is super!

    I like the AnalogMan CompROSSor a lot for this sound. The original Ross Compressor was basically a fancy version of the Dyna-Comp, now made fancier by Analog Mike. Next on my list of ones to check out (if I weren't satisfied with my CompROSSor and ToneFactor Orange Squeezer clone) would be the Barber Tone Press and the Diamond Compressor (there are plenty of nifty compressors out there!)...

    Also, Barge Concepts has a compressor that I would check out. If I didn't have 2 that I like a lot already, I'd pick up this Ross-inspired Barge Concepts compressor from the Emporium for $115:
