    Will someone chime in and let us know about this new creation of Sean's?

    I'd like to hear about the differneces between this and the 3 knob Balance. Oh, Sean.....?

    Earlier today in this thread, Sean described the differences as:

    My guess is it is similar to a BBB. Sean played one for me over the phone...so I bought one last night from his site.

    I have a Dragon and it is really cool! Versatile galore, that's one thing I really like about Sean's pedals, so many "usable" tones! Ya know how lots of pedlas only have "that one good tone" and a few alrights, well every darn Lovepedal I have gets me lots of beautiful tones. Problem is, where do I dial each one in at! His pedals continue to blow me away!
    I have not tried the BBB, I believ every word Sean says about his pedals and how they sound, his explanations nail it to my ears every time. The Dragon can be a straight rocker or set for a nice fatty fuzz breakup which I use for things like Red House, back gtr colume down and turn it up for leads, nails it for me.

    What are the 3 controls--vol, gain and tone?

    Cleans up well with guitar's volume knob?

    Can it do flat out fuzz (not distortion)? I'm thinking of pedals like the Sunface, etc. I do realize that it's a hybrid and not a pure germ. fuzz like the Sunface.

    I think it is. No LED and no power jack. I will find out soon because I am weak and just got a bonus; I had to order one. Sounds very intriguing and versatile. I am going to ask him about an LED.

    Man I wish I had the money to buy a fuzz from Sean..

    The Dragon looks superb, the only thing that troubles me is the placement of the third knob which is very very close to the footswitch. I've had a lots of headaches concerning hitting pedals accidentally and changing the settings..

    regarding the closeness of the swotch, I htought the same hting,b ut nope, no problems for me at all. The knob is lower, so I dount it would ever come into play.
