Rocktron Silver Dragon Distortion
Distortion lamp, everything has already been said.


This is a distortion pedal. Everything has been said also.


I have read many good things about this pedal that pushed me to buy it. And I was disappointed at first when I had a Marshall amp as hybrid. I expected to find that I missed the heat through the lamp, but the sound was still too cold and a little rough.

I retried on my Mesa Mark V a few years later, and then slap. Very very effective, biting, super grain, and the coldness that had thus makes my Marshall.


This is a very good distortion pedal but not fully be expressed with a good amp (which readily accepts pedals). I was able to verify the adage was the sound of the weakest in the chain link material. Have a great pedalboard plugged into a low-end amp is not used much.

On the downside, it takes a lot of space in the pedalboard and have a 12v power supply (included) to saturate the lamp 9v is a little short.
And it tends to not blow hurts when you push the gain. Normal with a lamp.

Rocktron Silver Dragon Distortion
Big boîboîte aluminum dark gray Metallic with black plastic buttons 6 (type chicken head), two crappy switch (od and distortion), and a strengthened Chinese bulb LED (so that one has the impression that illuminates for real, its level you can imagine that it is useless ... or: it is better suckered the "musicians" who appreciate her with their eyes).

Brief. It looks like a distortion pedal. It is to be mistaken.
So 10/10 for perfect resemblance to a pedal-type effect OD / Disto, but -2 for the led to pigeons, and still -2 for switches that have dropped me and I need to change. So: 10 - 2 - 2 x AF / statement = Correct (6)


It's simple: there's buttons, they must turn and listen to what it produces on its ...
I have not read the manual ...
The potos are not there to decorate, the sound is actually changed once they are moved. This gives a wide variety of sound: light overdrive to screaming distortion very dirty or dark.


I was looking for a distortion with lots of gain (really), and sufficient accuracy for its "lead", the overdrive was the gift Bonux, I've never wanted a special but now I find very useful able to juggle between the two.
This is a distortion that suits me (I have not tried everything, I'm a fan of "démerdes you with what you did").
The popping sound is precise enough for solos that I do. There is a good dynamics and harmonics out very well.
I use it on a Fender tube amp, a Strat and a super strat style hotrod 80's (designed for the game and nothing else, it buries all the luxurious guitars I've tried ...)

I recommend using it with an equalizer and a compressor, because they add the possibility of mods almost indispensable.


I play for 20 years, I have tried many many things. I went through all stages of the guitar addict: "I buy because it's beautiful," "I buy because it's brand", "I buy because my idol is used" ... : D Anyway.
Today, I'm gone. I will start on AudioFanzine lol

And what I say: Good distortion pedal in big win. Gain a very typical course that can become "too much" if you do not take the time to turn his potos to refine the resulting sound. If you want the Mesa, it does not. Follow this advice from "old" put at least an equalizer for "shaping" your distortion, regardless of the pedal used ...
For those seeking a small disto nice, it's not for you, you'll find that too messy. And for those seeking the distortion of Doe's latest album is not for you non-plus. Typed too. It is geared for those who want to have the same color of his that everybody while having a big win that allows him to play metal and hard as well as lead to riff.

Outside switches anemic, I am satisfied.

PS: the lamp is original. I have not tried with the EH 12 AX7. Should I try, but hey, I expect not a sound revolution. I think we give too much importance to the material while the sound is first your hands ...

As said before


Nothing could be simpler


C of I ke one word .... it's just terrifying! Sound little crunch to the sound of the rain brutal (it's too ?)!!! that p dale is the 'most comfortable ... in the big trs disto!
the prob was I c that for the moment I play a marshall 30 watt amp transistors! c pa amp really a high-flying instead! But thanks to this pedal I rveille this amp a bit rotten! but little distortion be so great that the poor can not follow!!


For the price carrment c terrible!

It's simple you for $ drisoire the best disto a transistor and lamp!
and more are rgalges bxs as pie!


Simple and extremely simple both so terrible!


The pedals must give you the sound of the crunch to distortion-edged finally nag all you want to solo with a little reverb and c hop party for solos do read end!


This pedals is amazing! Cons but to feel its power must play something other than 20ou30 watts I played with a stack hughes Kettner warp7 and frankly if I had to start over I'll change it (for amp see comment)
my sound is simply huge!!
The power of the amplifier gives a more bass and ca dmnage and go!
