Dave Kilminster's Live Rig With Steven Wilson, 2016

Published on Jan 29, 2016

In this episode, Daniel and Mick visit ace guitarist and wonderfully nice bloke, Dave Kilminster, on tour with prog rock titan, Steven Wilson.

This was filmed during the 2015/16 'Hand. Cannot. Erase.' tour, firstly at The Royal Albert Hall in London (September 2015), secondly at The Colston Hall in Bristol (January 2016).

Dave takes us through his rig, explaining how he had upwards of 90 patch changes for the Albert Hall shows in order to cover the gamut of Steven's incredible material.

If you get the chance, please go and see Steven, Dave and the band live – it's a sonic and sensory experience that you'll never forget.

Dave also plays with Roger Waters, as part of his long career as a touring, session player and solo artist.

Dave plays three main electric guitars for the shows: a 1988 Gibson Les Paul Custom, a custom Suhr 'Rosie' singlecut and a Tom Anderson Drop T with P90s.
Dave's main amp is a Brunetti Mercury head with 4x12 cabinet.
