#VFEFRIDAY The Dragon Sps version
« on: August 13, 2021, 07:54:37 AM »
This is the final entry for VFEFriday and I wanted to end it with a bang. This is my favorite VFE pedal, this is what I love about an overdrive. The hpf/lpf make this the most transparent pedal out there and it has just a ton of volume ontap to drive any amp.

This sps version has the switching and power board that came built from VFE and I just had to handle the smd on the audio board and populate it. I airbrushed it gold and then hand painted the dragon on it and got some really sweet knobs from Small bear.

After it was built I sent a picture of the inspiration photo and of the pedal to an artist to make me this dragon. This dragon has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen. It will live a top this amp forever.

For some reason I cannot get the pictures to just show up, I am not at my computer until Tuesday to fix…..

Great looking build and pal! I've been dragging my heels on this project. Hearing that it's your favorite, I'm putting it to the top of the queue.

If it’s the guy I’m thinking of, that would be incredible.

Another awesome build, Dan!  Bitter sweet, since it's the last of the series. 

I seem to remember a post from way back with three dragon builds, was this one of those or a new one?

This is a brand new one, I had built about five of the live series and they are went out to different fellas. This is my personal never to be sold always on display Dragon.

The series is ending but you may see a one off here and there….

I am sure I have used it in a video before. I don’t have plans but could maybe do one up.

Agreed on that, I like both the dragon and also the dragon :)
