What period? I'm gonna assume you mean supernatural period, in which his tone comes from a combination of cranked vintage Mesa Boogie MarkI's (the reissue will probably be your best bet) and a warm guitar with humbuckers (PRS in this case, but a LP could work). The EQ is also very important. You want lot's of mids, and cut the highs a bit for warmth.

EDIT: oh yeah, neck pickup.

I would go for a big muff.... Much like Santana, theres one with a moho mod or something which is supposedly good....

Santana's tone really can't be captured in a pedal, but if you have no other choice, your best bet is an Ibanez Tubescreamer. Also, the EQ is very important.

EDIT: for black magic woman, it's all in the fingers. Listen to the phrasing in that song, it's truly amazing.
