  • This portable amp, although not big enough to be Clapton's main stage amp, was featured in Clapton's first ever video shoot, directed by Godley & Cream in 1985, for his hit single with Warner Brothers, Forever Man. Clapton also used this amp during a number of low key appearances including with Stan Webb at Finchley Cricket Club following a charity cricket match in August 1986.
