Eric Clapton's guitar

Does any keen-eared Cream fan know -

...... what guitar Eric Clapton was using when he recorded the song "Badge" in 1969 with Cream?

 Smiley

It is particularly noticeable in the bridge at 1:08, when he does a brief solo.

I know in various subsequent images he is holding was seems to be a Strat, but the sound in the original recording does not say Strat to me.

Re: Eric Clapton's guitar

69 was when he made the switch to the strat, before that he was mainly on gibson; es-335, les paul and SG.
But that cool swirling sound that the guitar makes is nothing to do with the guitar used I think: It sounds distinctly like a leslie cabinet. Running my epiphone les paul through my leslie can give something like that sound

Cheers mate.

I do think that sound is fantastic.

Yep it's a leslie cab.

The rotating speakers and horns produce the 'doppler' effect where the pitch of a sound changes with it's relative position to the listener. The same effect that makes a police or ambulance siren appear to flatten in pitch as it passes you.


Youth & enthusiasm are no match for age and treachery.
