HD500 - ABITW Pt.2 Solo - Can it get any better?

Not sure if anyone has seen this video, but this has to be one of the best replications of the tone Gilmour got on the recording of Another Brick In The Wall Pt.2. on any modeler. I've heard it played by many of modelers, but this has to be the closest that I have ever heard. I'm sure the pickups are helping in this a lot.

I don't think this guy has posted the patch on custom tone, and not sure if he is sending out the patch. I requested it from him a few days ago and haven't received it yet.

In the history of modelling has anyone tried to replicate his tone in that solo using the actual model of guitar he used? :D

I'm not so sure about all of the raves here. I ran this through a dual sweep spectrum analyzer along with the original recording. After bandpass filtering the majority of the audible frequency range to remove all traces of the other instruments and setting up a few tracking markers I noticed a considerable spike around the 5.345kHz area that was about .002dB too high. It's undetectable to most test equipment, but using the most sensitive reference setting I was able to see it for about 35ms on about 21% of the 567 times I looked at it.

I'd say that proves that its not even close.

:rotflmao. Really, very tasty sound indeed and I am Pink Floyd obsessed. Makes me wonder about getting rid of my Pod HD

Sad thing is, you see people post this stuff for real.

I think we should all bombard his youtube and email with requests for the patch.

Good tone Fantastica articulation in the playing. I'm not sure if you played both tracks in a blind test that I would be able to pick out which was which (except one sweep part).

I would :p
The performance was 99.99% there. It's tough when millions of guitarists know and learn the same solo note for note. I think I could hum or sing this guitar solo it's so amazingly melodic and memorable.
But yes, great performance and great tone!

Nope...Considering that most folks still think it was a strat neck pickup. Who could blame them. The recording sounds like a strat neck pickup

Also what amp does one use to simulate gilmours direct to the board original take? hi watt is not the "correct" answer. Maybe the new hd tube preamp?

See, I knew all along it wasn't close. And not just because it was said from the beginning it's a modeler instead of Gilmour playing his rig himself 'cause, you know, I would never hear things with my eyes. :bonk

A gold top lp with an incredibly stratty sounding p90 neck pickup
Sounds like David Gilmour sounds playing anything. If it had been a Duncan Hot Rails in a Jackson soloist, David would have tweaked around until it sounded the way he wanted. David and the producer were the key factor in getting that tone on the record.
