Dragon 45 112 Combo

More Info/Specifications

Dragon 45 Amplifier
The DRAGON 45 is a vintage inspired, modern featured 100W electric guitar amplifier designed in collaboration with Joe Satriani and 3rd Power’s Dylana Scott. Its vintage inspiration comes from the legendary 1967/1968 Plexi Super Lead 100. Its modern features come from the vast combined knowledge and experience of Joe and Dylana.

The DRAGON 45 encapsulates the soul and inspiration of iconic studio recorded guitar tones throughout history. At its core, the DRAGON 45 is a hand-wired, point-to-point amplifier – built with loving attention to detail, by people skilled in the craft.

Available in either a stand-alone head version as well as a 112 combo, the DRAGON 45 employs vintage-style, paper-bobbin transformers throughout. The laydown mains transformer delivers 500V to a pair of Svetlana EL34 output tubes. A blend of four hand-selected JJ (ECC83S) and Sovtek 12AX7LPS dual triode preamp tubes are called into action performing as follows: Vintage Plexi Mode, High Gain Cascade Mode, Class-A Cathode-follower Tone Stack, Tube buffered FX Loop, and finally, the Phase Inverter. Robust electrolytic capacitors provide the internal circuitry with clean, filtered high voltage.

When you plug your guitar into a DRAGON 45 amplifier, each note leaps out with intense passion, authority, and glorious warmth. In other words, it’s PURE CREATIVE FIRE!

Craft Your Tone
The Dragon 45 features innovative tone-crafting features such as: Plexi/Cascade Preamp Modes, 400Hz Boost, Vintage/Modern Tone Stacks, Ultra Presence (4 Switchable High-Frequency Shelf settings), Low Freq. Push, Vintage/Focus Power Amp Modes. Effortlessly integrate your time-based digital effects devices with a tube buffered effects loop.

HybridMASTER™ Volume Control
The HybridMASTER™ control is located on the front panel giving you the confidence to play what you feel when you feel it at exactly the volume you need for the occasion. Not a power-scale or power soak, HybridMASTER simultaneously controls the volume, limits the DC current and regulates the DC plate voltage of the tube circuitry to deliver your desired tone at any volume setting that’s right for the room. Our patented HybridMASTER is volume management executed to perfection!
