The new special edition Box Set of Gilmour Live in Gdansk is out in the US at Best Buy exclusively. ($70) Europe and elsewhere see Gilmour's website for where to get it in your country.

This box includes 3 music CDs, 2 DVDs including the full concert, bonus tracks and footage, three jam session videos, and a packet containing picture cards, a ticket from the concert (in Polish!), laminated backstage pass, and one of Gilmour's signature guitar picks (small and stiff, I think made by Fender).

Truly an orgy of Gilmour/Floyd material. Perfect for diehard fans like me.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE pink floyd, beyond all doubt my favourite band and favourite guitarist. They're on a pedestal that other bands will simply not touch to me.

Buuuuuuuuuuuut I can't help but question why someone would want some things that come in collectors edition stuff. Especially with things like back stage passes or photo's included in these things, because, unless I wasn't actually there, it wouldn't have any meaning to me... If you know what I mean? Obviously this is just my opinion and not trying to say that anyone who would like such a collection shouldn't.

I do cherish my Live8 ticket, because I was there and got to see them smile.gif

But to have a pass that came from a collectors edition it would just make me remember I wasn't actually there!

Great show though, was particualy sad watching it the other night on the BBC after Richard's death.

Did anyone see the documentary on the band that night on BBC? It was "David Gilmour night" in the UK on BBC4 and I've taped the documentary as my dad mentioned it was the best he'd ever seen, and as a an even bigger floyd fan, I have to watch it smile.gif He got to see the Wall and Animals live... Ahh to be born 30 years earlier than I was...

I agree, the ticket and backstage pass are silly, but I do appreciate the guitar pick, just to have it. It's inscribed with his name and "logo." Also, I don't know if all the picture cards are the same in every box, but mine came with a very sweet photo of Richard Wright at one of the sound checks.

I'd take a pick too actually, that would be a bonus. If the photo's were randomly assorted that would be quite cool also. Such a shame about Richard, it's only now I really think about just how huge a part he played in the floyd sound, through out the years.

Wow! Thanks for that info, I didn't know about that. I haven't had time to fully explore the set, it's a lot of material!

(YIKES! That signature Strat is $4000 and up. Ouch. For that price they should also bundle a Butler Tube Driver and a Demeter Compulator, which are also essential to his sound.)

Do you have the tube driver with the optional 5th knob for bias adjustment, and if so, is it worth it?

I opted for the one without the bias, it was just a bit out of my price range. Plus I was convinced it would over complicate things for me trying to achieve sounds! It's so versatile in its basic form anyway, especially considering you can switch out the tubes to lower or higher gain ones.

Hehe. Yeah.
Actually, for that price I would expect Gilmour to come home to me and play whenever I wan't to tongue.gif

Can anyone explain why he would be using a vintage tremolo as opposed to say, a Floyd Rose? I thought the vintage trem was hard to keep in tune, and he uses it a LOT.

Habit I guess - he's been playing strats since the 60s and probably saw no need to change ... he can probably afford to have the trem setup so it does what he needs - you can get them to work ok with some effort.

He did actually fit a Kahler tremolo system on his infamous Black Strat in 1983, but must have disliked the feel of it as he swiftly took it out in '77. The inbetween years he wasn't actually using the Black strat, it was on display in a rock cafe in dalas. So he didn't really ever use it much I guess.

A fantastic site for all things Gilmour, is http://www.gilmourish.com

Its a fascinating site, full of in depth analysis of all his settings on each song on every album. Talks about the history of his guitars, effects, amps etc. It's worth a look!! Even has some great backing tracks smile.gif

Here's the link to the Black strat history - http://www.gilmourish.com/?page_id=66
