Since leaving Fairport Convention he has continued to use electric guitars with single coil pick-ups, most famously a lates Stratocaster but also two custom built electrics by Danny Ferrington as well as other Stratocasters, various Telecaster -type guitars and, in the studio, a Danelectro U2.
As regards effects , he has made significant use of modulation and vibrato type effects pedals, most notably the Univibe and emulations thereof.
He made use of these devices on 's Sunnyvista album and has occasionally used them in concert. Since the early s Thompson has made prominent use of Lowden acoustic guitars for studio and live work; Lowden have made a signature model for him. Before this he used a Martin as well as instruments built by Danny Ferrington. For live work his acoustic guitars are fitted with a Sunrise pick-up and an internal condenser microphone. The output from the pick-up is usually fed into some effects pedals, typically a delay pedal and a Uni-Vibe.
