Lizard Leg Effects Announces Draconis Dual Boost

The Draconis Dual Boost pedal takes the company''s critically acclaimed pedal, the Flying Dragon, and doubles the boost.

Gonzales, LA (November 9, 2009) -- Lizard Leg Effects has announced the release of the Draconis Dual Boost, available now. Production has started and the first units started shipping to players and dealers this week. The Draconis Dual Boost pedal takes the company's critically acclaimed pedal, the Flying Dragon, and doubles the boost. Here are details from Lizard Leg:

No matter the specific needs, the Draconis allows you a fully customizable boost option that we would like to think will set the standard in this category.

Imagine taking an already fully transparent boost and adding a second boost channel – and then mix in a switchable effects loop! The Draconis allows you to dial in two different boost levels so you can now focus on the playing and less on adjusting boost levels. Set one channel low on the dial to give the amp a little oomph during the chorus. Set the second channel hot for a searing lead boost. Set both channels hot and really give them something to talk about!

And the best part about it...the effects loop addition allows you to place other effects in between the channels for even greater flexibility and versatility. Whatever the scenario calls for, The Draconis will provide unlimited boost combinations that any player will find redeeming. What you put in is exactly what you get out.... only a heck of a lot more!

Can an entry-level modeler hang with the big dogs?

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.

The allure of portability and sonic consistency has become too much to ignore for some guitarists, making smaller digital modelers more appealing than ever.

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
