    Hi Bjorn, once again awesome stuff im using a DLC rotosim do you have any experiance wth this pedal i mainly use it for SRV but have recently thrown it on my gilmour pedal board and trying it out i guess its all trial an error. Keep up the great work ;)

    • Bjorn says:

      Never tried the DLC so I can’t really tell but the reviews are really nice. Doesn’t seem to have a master effect level though, which you would need to be able to mix it with a dry sound like David… or maybe you can do that with the horn/drum levels? I don’t know…

    Hi Bjorn – greetings from London. Thank you so much for all this incredible content. Would you set up the RT-20 a certain way for David’s earliest use of Leslie cabs? I’m essentially trying to re-create his early 70s ‘BC108’ fuzz era tones rather than his 80s/90s tones. Thanks.

    • Bjorn says:

      Not really. It doesn’t really have that deep Leslie tremolo but raising the wet signal a tad would get it closer I guess.

    Hi Bjorn,

    I know this question isn’t related to the post but I wasn’t sure where else to ask and o couldn’t find the answer anywhere else on the site. Do you know what mics David used for vocals on the PULSE tour? I’m using talk box more lately and it looks like his mic is not a ball type omnidirectional. The ball mic I have tends to push the tube out to the side to much for it to be comfortable and pick up the sound straight on. I’ve read rumors that he just uses an sm57 with an A2 windscreen but can you confirm this?

    Many thanks,
    Ernie

    Excuse the really numerous typos, my phonesp keyboard is in dire need of recalibration. I assure you I’m an excellent speller, but even after proof reading my posts, they come out wrong!? Keith

    Excellent little video taste of the RT-20, a pedal I’ve had on my board without exception since I started building it. It is everything you say, and maybe a little more, as I found many uses I never imagined. It’s definitely no Leslie, and the distortion, and uni-vibe are useless for the most part, but once you spend several hours finding the sweet sounds that until you find them, the 2-4 settings seem useless, but therecare non_Gilmour uses for every “mode”, but 1 is definitely the place fir fhe Doppola like tones. Thanks for revisiting this pedal!
    Keep it up mybJedi Master, KEOTH

      Glad you liked it Keith :) I rarely play Gilmour anymore, apart from the occasional jam in my home studio, but I’ve always loved the RT20 for those subtle rotary sounds and I use it all the time when I record stuff for my projects.

        I find using it with my 24 track dp24 Tascams latest, and most pro sounding recorder when used for tracking, then bouncing the tracks to your favorite DAW,( which at the moment is Reaper), I can use it in stereo, panning each input channal chmost all the way to left on on channel, and right forvthe other. It can give me the best sounding stereo chourus, akin somewhat to thecwonderful stero chorus i used to get on my modified JC120 wherevI had a tech split the two output trannsformers so the 2 speakers in the amp were thev right, and the extention eabinet was made into the left channel. So,cusing it to record in stereo gives you that same wide chous like; beautiful sound, but zero noise, and just so many things you can do to your recordings with it. ItdI one of only 2 used pedals I brought, and wwas brand new when I paid $125 for it at Guitar Center. I found that it eas fun for us and them, and a few other songs that it emulated his effects well for, but the pedal didn’t really come into it’s own until I started experimenting with different settings when recording. It was there whetr I found the true versatility of the RT-20, and all the wonderul things it could do for recording riffs behind the main rythyms, and I’ve even had some great sucess with Tommy James ( sort of) type vocal effects. I could go on, and on about one of the finest pedals Boss ever made.
        Peace to you all, KEITH
