Eric Clapton has been using a 1958 Fender Twin Amp, modified to increase the output by the late Cesar Diaz, for recording since the late 1980s. This model of amp was first seen on stage on the Blues nights during the 1991 Royal Albert Hall 24 Nights season. When Clapton started to play more blues numbers on stage in 1993, initially he used the Tweed Twin for the early part of the set, alongside his Pete Cornish/Soldano/Marshall rack set up. By 1995, Clapton was using the Tweed Twin Amp exclusively and had by this time acquired a number of spares. In 1997, Fender Amp Custom Shop built three replicas of his modified Tweed Twin using vintage parts and old pine, to replace the vintage Tweed Twins for stage use.more
