    I would want just a basic trem pedal for this, obviously I already know that he is probably using the trem on one of those vintage fenders behind him, but surely I can buy something simple to accomplish this, how about the Tremster?? Sound clips sound pretty good, what the general thought on this, Gilmour...man what an inspiration he is to a lot of players!!
    And how about this one(short but way cool!)

    Yeah, Almost too much info on that sight!! Was cool reading though, I guess I dont need the exact equipment that he used, just wanted some easy to locate easy to afford stuff, with the help of the great TGP folks!!

    BTW, from the looks of your gear, you look like you could be a Gilmour fan as well??

    I think gilmore used a phaser or a univibe for breathe.

    As far as the fuzz goes, a silicon fuzz face, or a rams head big muff should get you pretty close.

    The only tremolo I can think of, would be on money.

    The second solo is a Skreddy Lunar module dead on.

    Thanks! Thats why I always ask here, I would have been looking for a Trem instead of a Univibe! Same goes though, easy to find and easy to afford!!

    Does this fall in the easy to get and easy to afford category?? I thought the Skreddy stuff(which I always hear good things about) are harder to get and fairly pricey??

    Get the MXR "74 reissue" phaser and a Monsterpiece NPN fuzz (or a PNP) or a Hendrix Fuzzface (all moderatly priced, new, easily obtainable gear.)
    It will run you as much for both pedals as one of those pricy AM's.
    You will be able to get ALL those sounds, because that's pretty much the TIME equipment. (If you listen to "Us and them" you definately hear a REAL Leslie effect, but that is not the Time sound.)

    I think you'd be better off spending your time really getting those chord voicings down pat, rather than chasing a lot of fancy gear for that "last 1%" of tone.

    The reason I listed a phaser is because Gilmour eventually switched the univibe out for a EH Electric Mistress Flanger. He also added a phase 90 and a small stone. After 1977 there was no UniVibe on the board. So I can only assume he used a phaser for a univibe replacement.

    Plus you can pull off a decent floyd sound with either a uni vibe or a phaser.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Univibe
    "The Univibe (or UniVibe, or Uni-Vibe) is a footpedal-operated phaser or phase shifter for the guitar. It was introduced in the 1960s by Shin-Ei, and was intended to emulate the "Doppler sound" of a Leslie speaker."

    So I think it is more than acceptable to suggest a phaser for the Floyd sound...

    +1 monsterpiece npn is a great fuzz. Pretty damn affordable. A bit cheaper would be the Dano Cool Cat Fuzz. It won't be as close as the monsterpiece, but it is a very versatile fuzz pedal, so you can use it for other sounds as well. Dano also has the Cool Cat Vibe. That would be a good low cost option. Also check out the chicken salad from danelectro, but its plastic and not true bypass.

    Also check out the new muff style pedals that EH makes. Very affordable stuff. I like the little big muff, and the nano muff.

    That swirly sound is his custom made by Dunlop rack mount Univibe that is incorporated into the rack portion of his rig. He has had it since Division Bell.

    Thanks for all the input, and a critic who has never heard me play...anyway, how about that univibe??, obviously the original stuff is out of the question!, how about something else??

    Someone earlier suggested the Microvibe as an alternative.

    cheaper univibish sounds are the micro vibe, the dano chicken salad, and the digitech ex7. . . . a phase 45 will get you there as well. . . .

    In addition to what Orogeny said, The BYOC large beaver is the BEST bet for copping the Gilmour muff tones. A pre-made pedal is $130 and it comes in 2 flavors (triangle or rams head) with a 4 way selectable mid switch.

    You're going to need a delay as well.

    I saw the mention of a phase 45 maybe getting you there... to add to that, I have a tonefactor nebula (sort of like a phase 67.5) and it can achieve a very good "breathe" sound... Yes, it's a phase pedal, but I think it sounds pretty close.

    Just my opinion.
