lol back at'cha ... i love that period of clapton's music the best ... esp the layla sessions ... still, to me at least, one of the most important guitar albums ever produced ... a must listen for every guitar player (tho most everything from that early period is a must listen) ...

and i think you're right btw that he didn't use a fuzz but used 'the woman tone' ... i've played with guys who didn't know it and with just a clean amp, no pedals, they think that my les paul somehow has a special pup or something ... it is very sweet and fuzzy and a good thing to experiment with before spending any money on a fuz imho

thanks again for the great article

(btw you mentioned a jimmy page one too ... i don't find it ... is it still up? and do you have other articles planned for the future? i won't want to miss them i'm sure )

It was Brownie, yes and then an old Fender Tweed Champ, narrow panel, 5F1


Hmm... So what, from nowadays stores, could give me quite similar sound? I mean: at least 'the texture'.

I enjoyed the article and the posters knowledge of claptons gear , by why does this have to be a sticky?
#60
this is great for what it covers
but it would be nice to have Blind Faith and Derek and the Dominoes
#61
Well I did not cover them because of time constraints, however I could add them soon!

^Well actually Eric only used 1959s, however his early ones were the 1959 JTM100s. To me that tone does sound like the EL34 1959 and it looks like the band is in their later days so that's what I would assume it is!

This may be the coolest thing I've ever seen on the internet.

Are there any more threads like this with different artists?
#72
Clapton has been seen using various early JTM45 half stacks. One of the pictures is seen down here. However he said to Jim Marshall he needed an amp that would fit in the boot (trunk) of his car. This made Jim doing a combo of the successful JTM45 head. This became the Series I combo. Clapton had one of these during the first Mayall era. However when he was kidnapped in Greece (a local band’s manager locked up his amp so he wouldn’t leave) Clapton had to leave this combo behind.
#73
his autobiography, which i've just started to read, looks as if it provides a fair bit of insight into his guitars etc
If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

I know this thread is old but there's some info I want to add. First, Eric wasn't necessarily kidnapped he was afriad of telling the manager of the band the Juniors that he was leaving (He was playing for them after there guitarist died and the glands[Clapton's make-shift band with his friends] were opening for them). The manager from what I understand he was an angry person who threatened to cut Claptons hands off if he left. So he created an escape plan where he left during a rehearsal the plan forced him to leave behind one of his Les Pauls and the Marshall.

Yeah, but basically he had no choice, so in a sense of the wor dhe was "kidnapped"
