Today is David’s birthday and I though it would be great to celebrate with a new article, – part 1 of “The Early Years”. Hope you enjoy it and do feel free to share your birthday greetings with a comment!
Although Davidâ€™s rig was pretty basic during his first five with Pink Floyd, both his tone and technique played a significant role in shaping the bandâ€™s sound after Sydâ€™s departure. In this first of two articles Iâ€™ll look at Davidâ€™s guitars, amps and effects between 1968-1969 and how he created his tone.

Part 2 of this article will be posted in a month or so. Then we’ll look at David’s rig and tone from 1970-72.
