none. he plugs his guitar into a wah, bypassed to a cranked '57 tweed twin-amp.

im serious. cranked tweed tube amp from the 50s give loads of creamy overdrive. and clapton has the Mid-Boost in his preamp too. which... he doesn't use it till the solo in that song.

Clapton turns on his leslie speaker after two verses, and all throughout the solo, then after.

If you want to replicate the tone of the original recorded track more easily (and without having to buy vintage gear just for the one sound!), Digitech's Crossroads pedal comes pretty close. It's 'Badge' setting is actually slightly more off than the other settings, but if you tweak it a bit and use something like a Fender amp, you can get damn close to the right tone. I'm betting you could probably get the live tone too if you messed around enough.
