In London 1968 in the middle of the psychedelic boom era, Cream, the supergroup formed by Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker performed their last concert at the Royal Albert Hall before their dissolution, giving the best of the most symbolic shows ever!
The Woman Tone guitar pedal captures Clapton’s unique sound during Cream’s ephemeral yet significant existence, featuring a Plexi style overdrive and a distinguished Woman Tone function, replicating the exact same signature trick he was famous for.
The Woman Tone effect pedal recreates the tone Eric Clapton’s was known for during his Cream days. Slowhand, a nickname that can be quickly recognizable by guitarists, described it as a “Sweet sound” in an interview during the farewell gig at the Royal Albert Hall, he said “It’s more like a human voice than a guitar. You wouldn’t think it was a guitar for the first few passages. It calls for the correct use of distortion.” After watching the documentary, we couldn’t help but feel inspired and amazed by the mastery behind it, so after some research we decided to challenge ourselves and create a replica of this sound, with an accurate approach to the unique tone he attained with a combination of his custom made Gibson SG and 100W Marshall ampli.
In result, we achieve a pedal with a meticulous and faithful reproduction of the legendary Woman Tone by simply pressing a switch! The Woman Tone in a box, as we like to call it, is a doorway to the Cream era and a truly playable pedal for any Clapton fanatic out there seeking his famous sound!
