    and for those who may be interested, the middle set of knobs, those ARE my settings in ALL of my Dragon clips. i didn't change them for any of them, i roll my volume knob back to get those OTHER marshally tones in it, all right there in those settings (with a boost or without it still works, for metal i need that boost though).

    Keep em both and use em in a wet/dry/wet rig.
    Cobra on the left = wet
    Marshall (eg. DSL) in the middle = Crunch
    Dragon on the right = wet

    i want to have it like this
    Dragonlead (crunch) and rhythm (lead channel)
    Cobra Rhythm on Crunch and lead on rhtyhm
    2205 lead, lead, lead.

    so i can do rhythms in layers with the Framus's or leads in layers with a Framus plus 2205

    then use the cobra cleans specificaly for delays etc and dragons for reverbs and achos etc.


    i'll have a double boost as well. i will likely start with a delay per amp and maybe a verb on the marshall to test.

    if it doesn't all go well i'll sell the regular dragon (most likely) on here for an axe fx ultra or $1200 minimum.

    the Dragon's 100% too with fresh power tubes so IF i sell one it'll likely be it and at $1200.

    Keep them both! Would be fun.
    I wasn't aware Framus is from former eastern Germany.

    Not a poll option but, get the 2205 first, you already have a Dragon :confused:

    it says right up there it's a cobra in a dragon frame. it's been modified to cobra specs so it's not the same amp, it just looks like it:)


    2205's are easier to get than these honestly but, that's next.

    yeah these amps have all the sounds i need though. i do modern and everything else. an old marshall is everything else but, i still plan on getting a 2205 or an MKIII to cut down the center. that's been the plan. these are harder to get though so i'm snagging them up. the white one's a Cobra spec Dragon (so it's not a Dragon anymore) and the other one (that i own now) is a stock dragon.

    the Dragon on one end,cobra other and 2205 in the middle:)

    yeah i love German amps. the tones the Dragon can produce in range and depth are amazing. i can get most marshall tones with it, some vox and fender tones and some unique to it. The Cobra will be very much off to metal only land and once i get the 2205 i'll have my marshall in there:)

    those who hate the dragon and have not played one dialed in let alone at all....well.....poo on your opinion!lol

    if you hate them because you don't like their sound i'd understand but, i don't think you'd like Marshalls much then either. it's a modern metal marshall. all i need is a 2205 for the middle or "solo" section (though these do that REALLY well too) and i've got it all.

    the things go from plexi to SLO (literaly, stock dragons are 2203 on the crunch with added gain stages and tighter low end and the lead's an SLO100 while the clean is a VOX ac circuit) the COBRA modified dragon is cobra spec which is the same but, more gain and compression and is brighter in voice. same amp though with a couple resistors swapped in for higher values and one removed in there. so it's a JVM on the crunch and SLO00 on the lead and VOX ac on the clean.


    so basicaly they're modern metal marshalls with lower noise floors. I do plan on getting my marshalls again now though. I had to get this cobra first (the cobra modified dragon as they're HARD to get) but, i plan on getting a 4500,2500mkIII,2205 and JMP at some point and all the 1 watters when they're re released,lol.

    :) No. Just a " I cannot offer an opinion as I'm not well enough informed on this issue, and am slightly Retarded" option.
