Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

Clap­ton switched be­tween Strats and vin­tage Gib­son semis for the elec­tric tones, and Martin acous­tics for more tra­di­tional sounds. We’re after a cranked valve combo with a healthy level of over­drive and a bal­anced tone, with min­i­mal re­verb. Clap­ton’s Strat fea­tures a pow­er­ful ac­tive mid-boost so, fail­ing this, you might wish to con­sider adding a qual­ity over­drive pedal, such as an Ibanez TS-9 or sim­i­lar.
