    up a Clapton style tone. the one that he normally uses nowadays to play Layla.

    I know there is heavy overdrive involved but i can't get the exact tone setup. Any hints and tips ?

    Equipment at hand:
    1994 Fender USA Texas Lonestar Strat
    boss distortion DS-1
    boss heavy metal HM-1
    boss super overdrive SD-1
    vantage VG15 transistor based amp with built in overdrive

    can it be done or do i need something extra?

    that is defintely enough to get a similar tone - wat i use for the lead aprt u, know the 10,13,10,13 part is a distortion and not overdrive - i think its sounds much better - also on ur amp eq u might want to try a mid of 2.5, bass of 6 and treble of 7 - sorry cant be more helpful

    I dunno much about this but u can download the guitarFx preset for layla...and see what they use....usually their presets are spot-on..although thats totally software but might give u an idea of wat to use....

    ok unfortunately i'm not making much sense out of that software.

    according to that i need a distortion pedal, a reverb pedal and a plain amp but have eight equalisers. I've only got three :(

    well in any case i dont have the reverb so i'll try without that.

    Glad to see u found out the correct effects:)...u can still use guitarfx for extra effects that u don have...though i think it has a lot of delay..needs lot of processor....

    Try thicker strings. Most of the Blues Guys use at least a 10 guage string. No thinny wimpy slinkies.
