JAM Pedals has introduced the Seagull – a downsized, standard line version of its Pink Flow multi-effects pedal that dedicates itself to achieving David Gilmour’s distinct seagull sound effect.

Most notably found on Pink Floyd’s Echoes – as well as 1979’s Is There Anybody Out There? – Gilmour’s unique seagull sound effect was originally created when a roadie plugged a wah pedal in the wrong way, and is noted for its shrill, swelling character.
