Your DR has a mids knob?I've gotten very close with my fender deluxe reverb and my les Paul. The trick is to turn the treble, mid , bass to ten on the amp and roll off the tone on your guitar all the way and add a good overdrive. It's something I read Clapton used to do when he played a les Paul. Very cool smooth creamy tone.
PS. That video of him with Dave Mathews is exactly what I'm talking about!
i've never tried this either, but it sounds interesting. i usually keep the bass down pretty low on my DR.i'll have to try it... 'choking' is how it sounds like usually when I turn down the tone on my guitar, like the treble is being choked out of the circuit. Then again I usually set my amp with just enough treble with the guitar's tone knob all the way up. So i'll definitely try this sound sometime, can't say I've ever tried this....
should have been 100w and 20w, respectivelyThis is from Gibsons site.
...Clapton used heavy artillery: a Marshall 50-watt head through a 4x12 cabinet with 25-watt Celestion greenback speakers running full out volume, bass, midrange and treble all set on 10. And while an electronic amplifier especially one that emulates tube distortion can get the job done, one of Woman Tones key elements is the smooth, creamy distortion that only tubes provide.
