The Woman Tone: A tribute to Eric Clapton’s legendary sound

The Woman Tone - Aclam Pedal

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 - WHAT DOES IT DO?The Woman Tone - WHAT DOES IT DO?

WHAT DOES IT DO?

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!

THE ARTWORK BEHIND

Since we wanted to pay the most close and extraordinary tribute to Cream both from the inside and out, we decided to reach out to the artist who painted the art on Eric Clapton’s The Fool guitar, a Gibson SG, which became a cultural icon in the history of guitars, and we got lucky enough to get Marijke Koger, former leader of the art collective The Fool (which the guitar takes its name) to design the artwork of The Woman Tone pedal.

Marijke’s amazing work illustrates the essence of the Woman Tone, she said, “I enjoy decorating the Woman Tone pedal very much, with the intent of capturing the same spirit as the guitar.” And we definitely think she did, portraying a human in paradise with very vivid colors and key elements that reflect the movement of the psychedelic youth culture in the 60’s and the inspiration behind the original Gibson owned by Clapton

The woman tone is like a bearded rainbow!

Eric Clapton’s PAF pickups in his Gibson into a Marshall amp is one of my favourite guitar tones. This pedal conjures up the thick, mysterious dark tone that is Clapton’s woman tone. I’ve kept in on since it arrived a...

No internal battery??? You must be joking!

This pedal has plenty of real estate devoted to a pedal attachment system I have never seen used by anyone,.BUT, it has no room inside for a 9V battery, which nearly everyone uses?They claim they took input...

An amazing effects unit

The pedal is essentially two effects in box with the Plexi amplifier footswitch to the right and the Woman Tone knob controls the left.

Don't touch that dial... This pedal does it all

Offering a two-stage drive setup that brings in the Woman Tone at the touch of a footswitch, but it also serves as yet another superb option for players seeking out cranked Plexi drive in a pedal format
