UTILIZATION

DK2 is the option but with aditional which is a boost for her it increases the output signal which switches between a blow to the top of the other instrumentals for a solo instance.

It is powered by a 9V battery snaps and the small interuptor at the bottom, once activated you set the volume boost with the knob right next to the interuptor! is not to say the sound is very efficase gains in power and definition and sensitivity against the ultra distal to push all the tabs is not advisable because the sound will be boiled! and yes TOO suramplifier after that deteriorates the accuracy of the sound!

if there is not wiggle the power is to go!

SOUNDS

This magnificent metal scraper is typed both aesthetically and musically, but the panel of its enormous still amazed me (besides not me)! we play both blues, bossa, alternative, rock, hard rock, punk, metal ...... with the tit marshall brief on which I play and the right set of pickups vraimment we play everything! but in fact where it excels is in sound rather annoying! the microphones are copies of Seymour Duncan (Duncan Designed label), it seems to me that the HB-102B Humbucker is a copy of a real SH4 and the other I know not to ... but it is clear that the sound is already great ... but would be more true with Seymour including the SH4 and 2 lil Hot Rails!
but hey at this price you can not have everything! and then she already provides great sounds in all!

I put 8 because it is not real I put Seymour Duncan 10 if it had been real SD!

OVERALL OPINION

Comfort:

The ease of play is confusing the handle is very fast and pleasant to the touch hummm varnishes and shark teeth pearly throw it in! it's great happiness! it is a little wider than the sleeves Fender straocaster thereby did not encroach on the other strings when you're at the end of the handle, and DK 2 has 24 frets!

the boost is quickly engaged or disengaged via the interuptor! efficase fast!

the frets are Jumbo and this adds to the softness and ease in the game! the guitar is well balanced, it stings the nose at all!

the floyd is very famous JT580 is stable, reliable short a delight! He has already proven itself in many other models (like my company and SL3)
I had a choice between DKMG the DXMG DK2 and I had tested in buddies
The DKMG is too expensive compared to the quality of its equipment because the HZ are less accurate than the DK2 Duncan desinged and then at that price it would have been largely put EMG of TRUE (active)! still to + € 800 is a bit of foutage of mouth! c'st reverse and head not my style

The DXMG attracted me well but even those pesky c HZ very promptly put off that I was looking for versatility still correct!

the FS DK2 my attractive because it has a great range of sound, the price of € 609 due to the color at the base I got for 550 € (Clear Red), location of 9 V battery will allow me to microphones to be active when the urge takes me! HSS and configuration that appears to me as the Top Hot Rails are a very good job (I see here in the future)

his only fault in my opinion:
- No neck-
- No real Seymour Duncan

but hey at this price ... is difficult to growl!
