what type of amp should i get. I want to get a practice amp 10w-25w that could sound like eric clapton. I already have his guitar.
#2
eric clapton went through a ton of gear...what sound are you looking for?
Epiphone Les Paul Studio
Boss Metalzone
Peavey Bandit

#3
The one he uses now. Blackie with midboost, tbx circuits. Somewhat like the one he uses for crossroads festival or his reunion concert with cream in 2005.
#5
you can probably get away with a small fender tube amp, an overdrive and a strat with good pickups

Yeah a fender Blues jr. Champ or Pro Jr. would be a good choice.

If you're really strung out for bread you could even get a tiny 5watt Epiphone valve amp. They're not too shabby at all. But 5watts of valve power is probably better than the 15watt Marshall MG15 (I use a MG15DFX but with a Bluesbreaker pedal and a Les paul copy and it all sounds shockingly gorgeous. Nice and creamy)

Eric Clapton has LOTS of sounds.

Get an 18 watt Marshall.

Haha wicked I never realised I was sigged.

But on the topic, Fender Blues Jr. perhaps? But I think he's used Fenders, Marshalls and loads of other stuff in the past...
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

and even if you have everything that he has, you wont sound like him, so get a good amp that can cope the feel and sound pretty close and let your playing do the rest.

You mean bad and muddy.

The bluesbreaker would make the MG sound creamier than before, but if you hook that pedal up to a Plexi it would make your MG shit itself.

get his signature crossroads pedal, they're about £110 (dunno $), get even just a decent amp, and rely on the pedal for the clapton tone.

Dude, chill out. I like to do what is called EXPERIMENTING WITH SOUNDS. I can get a not to bad bluesy sound out of the MG15DFX on its own, but the bluesbreaker really makes this otherwise unremarkable amp sound quite good (only at low volumes though). The MG15DFX is obviously not my preffered choice of amp, but its alright for practicing on.

I just re-read your first post and noticed that you said the MG + Bluesbreaker would do if he was short on cash. And you're actually right, but even at that price range it would be better to get a Crate to use with the Bluesbreaker (the crate has a more transparent clean).
