    Damn I like that, and honestly I think his tone usually blows lately.
    That is incredible.

    i noticed he was playing with his fingers which is probably helping his cause but his tone that whole documentary/show er whatever you want to call it was fairly decent.

    There are all these youtube clips from the Cradle movie. Did it get released, or are these from insiders who have an unreleased rough cut?

    fwiw, I can't make out his amps, but iirc, it's supposed to be an SLO.

    Nice. There is a local guy who plays under the name Moses Oakland. He uses a ES-335 and has that same tone. Very nice.

    I just searched some of the other performances from this show on YouTube. From what I can tell, there is not an SLO anywhere to be seen but he does have two tweed combos behind him.

    I thought it was just bleh OK, playing and tone. Honestly Lance, you play way better than this and sound way better as well.

    Then it's the low power tweed twin...that no one likes...but EC.

    I saw some sort of 1 hour documentary with studio footage. That was an SLO for sure. I understand that the Cradle tour started with the SLOs and the twins arrived after it was underway.

    Interesting to see Moses's name pop up here... he's a friend of mine and I've played with him just about every Sunday for years now. In my opinion his tone is a bit fuller, probably because he favors blackface amps to tweeds. But he doesn't play an ES-335 - he usually plays a Gibson Barney Kessel, and sometimes a 60s L5-CES. Or his handmade burst LP, or his 61 Strat... dude's got a pretty sweet collection of guitars (and amps). Great luthier, great player, and he's got a better ear (and fingers) for good tone than just about anyone.

    Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeMPJDm6mSw

    There he is with the Kessel, a Savage Rohr 15 (not the usual amp!), and one of the best rhythm sections you'll ever hear. That's my stunt double/friend/former roommate on keys, and I used to do a church gig with that drummer, too. It's not the greatest mix, but you get an idea of that full hollowbody into a cranked Fender... sounds fantastic.

    Edit: another clip from the same thing... man I wish I could have been there to hear it live because this mix does not do the band justice.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guZg2-iGF3g -- this is the best song this group does I think. Some KILLER Hammond playing by my friend.

    Nice tone. Typical ES335 tone, not too distorted.

    IMHO, that's the contemporary E.C. I like to hear. Not that buzzy, overdistorted tone he gets from his Strat. Nice performance and arrangement of the great Lowell Fulsom song.

    Open letter to Eric Clapton;I've been a Strat player all my life but,Eric,you always somehow sound much better playing a fat ol' Gibson.Everybody I know agrees you need to go back to Gibsons.A Marshall 50 watt plexi would
    be the perfect compliment.Some of the greatest rock tones of all time,so go back to what put you in the history books.Please.
