For what it's worth this is a clip of me using a MK3, it's not a fancy recording by any means I think it's from someone's cell but the audio's decent.
wow, that was awesome. great playing!

anyone have any tips for getting a good david gilmour sound out of a mark III black dot? i know a fuzz is needed, judt a general starting point
I still play through my 35 year old Mark IIC and have managed to get a descent DG tone. I use a Boss CP-1X compressor then push the amp a bit with a Boss BD-2. Iv'e haven't been able to get any descent sounds with big muff pedals with the amp but the lead channel gets a pretty good sound for me. Lately I've also been using a Boss OD-1X overdrive pedal, I really am starting to like that pedal! For the wall tones my secret weapon is a Mooer E-Lady then some delay.

As a longtime Gilmour fan here (first time seeing the man in person was on the About Face tour!)....nice job!

But I see you have two amps in that video. Are we hearing stuff coming out of your MarkIIC and another amp?
