Rocktron's Silver Dragon is a distortion unit that combines the best of both worlds — tube and analog solid state distortion.
For that tube sound many guitar players love, the Silver Dragon uses a 12AX7 as the first mode, called AWAKEN, drives the tube sound. SHREIK controls the treble while ROAR provides low end control. FIRE handles the initial distortion drive level of the 12AX7.
The second mode, called SLAYER, features a mixed-in combination of the 12AX7 distortion with the solid state distortion driving the second half of the tube plus driving it together. Slayer INTENSITY changes the character of the attack properties magnifying the string attack. BREATH control is for the asymmetryof the solid state distortion. Output level control is also provided.
