The Woman Tone

The Woman Tone

The Woman Tone from Aclam is an overdrive with a twist.

Aclam has been making pedals to reproduce specific musical moments in history for some time. This is in the same vein as their other pedals while simultaneously being a new and exciting direction for them.

Woman Tone

The Woman Tone replicates Clapton’s Cream era tone which many people think is simply turning down the guitar’s tone.

The truth is unless you’re running a PAF-loaded 60’s SG into a 100W Plexi then your tone control alone won’t get you there.

The striking visuals may seem a little familiar and there’s a good reason for this! Marijke Koger, the artist behind Clapton’s iconic “The Fool” SG also designed the art for this pedal. Now that’s some heritage, paired with Aclam’s great form factor and unique pedalboard system this looks great.

Special features

The Woman Tone isn’t just an overdrive, thanks to these features it offers much more:

  • Pickup Simulator – Designed to create the Gibson PAF tones from Clapton’s SG.
  • Woman Tone – Just like Eric did, roll down for “that” tone. This is also foot-switchable making woman solos super easy to kick in.
  • Plexi Style OD – Turning this up will provide that Marshall aggression which changed music in the 60s. Remember though, Clapton didn’t use much gain!

Vintage Tone

All in all this pedal is aimed at those looking to have the Woman Tone in a box. Most of the people buying this pedal will be fans of Clapton or those who need to get that tone in a covers band of sorts. But there’s so much more this pedal has to offer and in the right hands, this can easily become the signature tone for modern artists. The Woman tone switch aside this still replicates an SG into a Plexi which has been used by artists from Mark Bolan to Page to Slash and much further. This pedal has much more to offer than it first seems and we can’t wait to hear how you use it.
