The DigiTech Eric Clapton Crossroads pedal delivers seven amazing signature tones!
In conjunction with Eric Clapton, DigiTech has helped recreate some of his most famous tones by applying their new Production Modeling technology. This revolutionary technology was designed to help reproduce the studio and live sounds and effects of an artist as heard on their recordings. This includes modeling the speaker cabinets, microphones with their placement, pre/post effects, and the recording engineer's magic all in one pedal. If you're a Slowhand fan or just want to add some amazing new tones to your sound arsenal, Crossroads is a must-have pedal.
Eric achieved his now infamous "woman tone " by running his amps as hot and loud as possible, rolling back the tone control on his SG and engaging his wah-wah to a fixed position. "Crossroads "
A pivotal moment in Eric's career, "Crossroads " was penned by Robert Johnson, Eric's most important guitar influence. Its electrified delta blues form evolved from Eric's days with the Bluesbreakers. "Badge "
Eric used a rotating organ speaker for the swirling guitar breaks between the verse and chorus. This sound was achieved by overdriving the amplifier within the rotary speaker and by strategically placing two microphones around the rotating speakers and panning their signals into a stereo field. "Layla " (Acoustic) A pivotal moment in Eric's career was his live acoustic performance on the MTV® television series "Unplugged ". This setting transforms your electric guitar signal into Eric's vintage acoustic heard on this performance. "Lay Down Sally "
This is a country style shuffle featuring Eric and George Terry in a counterpoint guitar duet. "Layla "
Eric's most recognized guitar riff and song feature him on "Brownie, " his Fender® Strat® guitar, through a tweed Fender® Champ® amplifier. "Reptile "
Eric's title track on his 2001 release "Reptile " features a classic Gibson® L-5 jazz guitar played through his custom Cornell tweed combo. Some chorusing and reverb were added during mixdown.
