Most overdrive pedals on the market use the same basic signal flow - bass cut first, then gain stage, followed by a treble cut. The Dragon takes this concept and gives you full control over the frequency response of those bass cut (HPF) and treble cut (LPF) filters. The gain stage architecture I paired with these filters has a high clipping threshold , giving the player greater feel and dynamic control. This dynamic response is perfect for stacking with other pedals - especially high gain distortion & fuzz pedals.

 

- True bypass with buffered bypass option via internal switch

- Massive amount of boost on tap to push any amp

- Internal trimpot to adjust the compression of the gain stage

- Filters can be 6dB or 12dB for more extreme EQ cuts
