    You will get alot of different responses to this question because different people 'hear' Clapton and SRV differently. Ie, it's in the ear!

    However, I have gotten pretty close with my current rig. It kinda covers all the bases.

    American Strat & Tele (w\ Vint. Noiseless Pups) > Keeley Java Boost > Keeley Fuzz Head > Keeley Katana Boost > Keeley Compressor > Ibanez AD9 (Keeley Modded) > Fender Deluxe Reverb Amp.

    As you can tell, I like the Keeley Electronics stuff. For my ear it's the best; but I haven't tried it all. The thing that made the Biggest difference and get's 'that tone' that you are looking for is the Java Boost and Fuzz Head. They work together very well.

    May want to consider the Analogman TS9 Silver or Keeley TS 808!

    Some kind of tube screamer-type pedal will get you started.

    Clapton's had such a huge variety of overdriven tones throughout his carreer that it depends on what period your listening to. Generally, he plugs straight in and cranks his amps, but the mid boost in his sig Strat is capable of adding serious overdrive.
    When I'm using an amp I can't crank, the Klon always gets me there.
    A Tube Screamer into a cranked Super or tweed Bassman is the classic SRV imo.

    I think the Fulltone Soul-Bender for Claptons tone when he was in Cream.

    Modded Tubescreamer for SRV tone.

    The TC Jauernig Diabolical Gristle Tone Manipulator should do it. Has a toggle switch to go from a gritty, dirty, TS-type OD to a compressed, smooth, warm OD. Excellent pedal for excellent price (140)
