In this video I’m explaing how you can use a phaser and flanger to simulate David Gilmour’s classic rotary sounds from the Animals and Wall era.
David Gilmour would use a Yamaha RA-200 rotating speaker cabinet, often blended with an Electric Mistress, mixed slightly lower than his dry Hiwatts to create a subtle modulated tone. I’ve always loved that liquidy wobble heard on the The Wall tour and the Is There Anybody Out There – The Wall live 1980-81 album in particular.
Stacking a Phase 90 ’74 MXR Custom Shop and Mooer ElecLady flanger gets you very close to that tone.
