    Clapton also used Cornell amps: http://www.cornellamps.com/artists/c...-eric-clapton/

    Denis will still make you one of these but they are pricey (sometimes they crop up second-hand but will still blow a 1K budget).

    I have a Romany Plus and love it. The Pro model would be getter for gigging. Either will get you those Clapton tones.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    To illustrate this point, Jeff Beck used a cheapo Fender Pro Junior on at least a couple of the tracks on Emotions and Commotion. Needless to say, that amp is no longer "cheapo", but if I remember the story correctly, the reason they picked it was that it happened to be laying around and it didn't matter to Jeff what amp they used. There was nothing special about it until Jeff played through it.

    Just going from memory, I believe that both Duane and Eric used a silver face Fender Champ when recording Derek and the Dominos.

    SAGuitar, I believe that is correct. That's why I suggested a Princeton. There's a big tonal gulf between Cream and The Dominoes, and even bigger going onward to Delaney & Bonnie, Ocean Boulevard and The Cradle, so it's pretty hard to know what "Clapton tone" anyone using that term is after. But I figure they're usually shooting for Layla or "Crossroads."

    Actually, I was guessing that our friend is considerably younger than myself and was therefore looking for more recent tones. But the difference between "Beano", "Crossroads", "Key to the Highway" and "Let it Rain" is a huge swath.

    A Princeton will suit you just fine, then. I think he was using the big tweed Twin for that and that would be too much money and too many watts for you, so a good Princeton reissue would be good for you.
