That hugeness that Gilmour gets on his more famous solos - Comfortably Numb, In the Flesh, etc. - what is he using along with his fuzz to add the echo-y effect? Is it delay or reverb?
The recorded tone on the wall is probably a strat, compressor, eq pedal Cornish Big Muff clone, another eq pedal then delay and reverb added in the mix stage. Gilmour may actually record with delay from his rack but generally speaking delay is usually added in the mix. He may not use amp reverb live or in the studio but the sound engineer is definitely adding some from the board.
I decided to learn "Time" last night and messed around with my pedals to get the various tones. The KOTB at low gain worked very well for the rhythm stuff. My Mayo and Memory Lane did a phenomenal job of nailing the solo. Lots of fun! It's amazing what a little delay in the background can do.
