    Personally, I'd do my homework & cut to the actual source of question at hand.

    FWIW, a recent Guitarist magazine feature on him showed a Way Huge Overrated Boost pedal.

    Your right. He says in the video that he has a boost pedal.

    I just heard the Earthquaker Devices Park Fuzz. I think that'd be the bee's knees for the sound in my head. Time to put it on the wish list.

    I've been playing Classic Rock in bands for 9 years now and rocking an AC30 since the last year. Here's what' been working for me:

    Clean Boost (CAE Boost/Line Driver, but any decent clean boost would work, right? Used for solos only, last pedal in the chain);
    Timmy for light OD (because I like to run the amp loud and clean);
    Marshall type OD (Some songs just ask for it. My current favorite is the Marvel Drive by Ramble FX.)

    Everything else is an extra.

    I'll throw delay, tremolo, vibe, fuzz (usually a Fuzz Face clone or Roger Mayer Axis clone) and a few others on the remaining spots on the board, but they are far from essential.

    If the drummer is loud enough, an attenuator is pointless. What you're going to need is more headroom instead, considering you want a real clean clean, not a super compressed and driven tone. With the drummer in my bands (the drummer and me play in the 2 different ones) 15w is barely enough to be heard through the mix. Oh, IME some pedals don't sound that nice through an amp that's fairly overdriven. Hope this helps.

    If its for the pleasure of using/buying stuff , go ahead , plenty of good advise
    Im sure you already know that it will be far more important to find the same vibe as the original stuff.... IMO , none of the gear used originally is that important....... Someone mentioned Claptons use of Wah back then , to my ears its about the worst Wah sounds ever recorded , and I would gladly pay money not to sound like that.....
