Which single coil set for the Gilmour tones displayed here?
« on: April 14, 2012, 10:51:52 AM »
5:08 onwards (the cleanish jangle) is the tone I'm looking for for my black strat. Enjoy the rest at your pleasure. I think this performance is so much better than the one on the record. Its just so much more raw. 7:34 onward is just brilliant.

That jangle sounds like Irish Tours, but on the forum in general Slowhands are recommended for Gilmour-esque tones. The are a bit middier then IT's and a tad more output. IT's have more sparkle in comparison. I think they might do too, if you have a good tubeamp.

I think forum member Hunter have made some great Gilmour-ish clips with Apaches. Try to see if you can dig'em up.

Actually watched the whole thing.. which I love.. went to see this movie..remember in 1979 in Boston and It was an only after midnight show .. I think Apaches are right there!!.. and also I read there is a new and closer to the DG strat sound that came out recently as of last year.. email the guys at BKP's .. !!

Well its the tone in that example i'm looking for rather than a general 'gilmour' tone. Irish tours are looking like the way to go. :)

Is there a pricing liston the bkp site anywhere for the prewired aged pick guards? I can't seem to find it if there is.

Yes, in the webshop you see aged prewired guards in the strat-section. They cost 80 quid. When you order a pickupset you can add in the commentbox your wishes too.

Pompeii is also my favourite Gilmour tone. I think Irish Tours may be a bit strong for that, I would aim for Apaches, maybe a bridge one with a baseplate? Add a silicon fuzz face and you'll be near.

Maybe, though the IT's are quite versatile when you use the vol. and toneknobs on your guitar.
