Powerful Clean Boost

Add up to 18db of clean gain without introducing any unwanted tonal artifacts to your signal. Use the ATD Boost to restore unity gain to your pedal board, push the other pedals in your signal chain or raise the level and presence of your time based effects. Higher gain settings will push your vintage amp into overdrive bliss!

Expressive Rock/Blues Overdrive to Full Blown-Out Fuzz

The Dragon Fire Overdrive is one of the most expressive Overdrives around. The Dragon Fire will let you go from a sweet sounding Rock/Blues Overdrive to a full blown out wall of sonic fuzz with just a few tweaks of its control knobs. You can use the bias control to go from a vintage sounding fuzz, to a fuzz that is more focused and defined with lots of tonal articulation. When the “IN” control is turned down you can use the Clean Boost to boost the Dragon Fire, (it’s great for power chords and solos). You can also use the tone circuit to shape and refine your sound.

3 band Active Tone Circuit to Shape Your Tone

When designing the Tone Circuit for the Alien Tone Dragon the guys at Analog Alien decided to go with an active tone control with non over-lapping frequency bands. This design allows you to adjust the three frequency bands (Treble, Mid and Low) up or down, without affecting the frequencies of the other bands. You can boost or cut from -16db to +16db. We wanted to create a tone circuit that could deliver a wide array of tonal options and that’s just what you’ll find in the Alien Tone Dragon.

  1. Tony Pasko

    I couldn’t be more excited to be one of the first guitarists to not only own but review this AMAZING Pedal!!!

    I have done a few demo videos for Analog Alien and have enjoyed their products on countless sessions and live performances. I’m a fan of their products but as any musician, you need to have the right tool/ tone for the job.

    As a guy who writes music for T.V. and Film I’m always switching up my gear depending on a show’s style of music or theme of an episode.

    I need to know what my gear can do quickly and deliver tracks that sound like the style they hired me to produce.

    Analog Alien understands this very well, as they design products that get you into that style you’re needing very quickly and, in some exceptions, they give you a spectrum of tone that can be very effective in multiple styles.

    The Alien Tone Dragon is the next logical step in Analog Alien’s pursuit to provide pedals for all guitarists of any style.

    I’ll start in the middle and work my way out on this pedal. The Dragon Fire has its own “on/off” footswitch and can go from a Rock/Blues Overdrive (aka REM/ Oasis) to a sonic wall of Fuzz (Smashing Pumpkins/ Dinosaur Jr.) with just a few tweaks from Dragon Fire’s three control knobs.

    If you are familiar with Analog Alien products then you know what the ”IN”, “OUT” & “BIAS” controls do. If not, I’ll quickly explain. The “IN” is how hot you hit the front, aka Gain. The “OUT” is your volume, and “BIAS” is similar to a tone knob, but here’s the difference: these three controls all work in unison.

    This is why Analog Alien pedals are so good. These are full rang knobs, meaning the sweep per knob can dramatically change your tone. Not to mention all Analog Alien pedals are very transparent when it comes to what type of guitar you plug into them.

    The center channel (Dragon Fire) alone would have been a great pedal but they didn’t stop there.

    Now, I don’t want to give myself any credit for this but I did bug the brothers a little about doing a pedal with a boost option in one pedal, and being the nice guys they are, they said that they would look into it.

    Well, they not only looked into it but came up with a new boost/ overdrive design that is wonderful on its own. 

    I personally like a “Clean Boost” but not all guitarists use boost in the same way. Some use overdrive pedals as boost pedals or set them to have a little bit of breakup.

    This boost does both with one knob. It of course sounds glorious with the Dragon Fire Channel but like all Analog Alien pedals, the boost does wonderful things to other pedals on your board, in-front or after.

    The “Boost” has its own independent “on/off” footswitch and provides a 1db to 18db of boosted signal.

    The right side of the pedal is the “Tone” channel, and its this feature that makes this pedal so special and not like anything else in the market today.

    The “Tone” feature shapes your sound with a three band, non-over-lapping, active tone control, and a “Master” volume.

    This is such a smart feature, because many guitarists use EQ as a way of sculpting their tone further than the amps/ pedals capabilities. This has been the secrete sauce for many of our guitar hero’s (Dimbag Darrell/ Kerry King).

    But if you have ever added an EQ pedal to your rig, you quickly find out that these pedals also add some noise to your signal, now you have the tone you long searched for but with an annoying hiss!!!

    Analog Alien solves this problem with the quietest active EQ in a pedal I have ever heard, and it’s super easy to use. “LOW”, “MID”, “HIGH”. 

    Bass: Cut-off frequency 200HzMid: Frequency filter 1 KHZ.Treble: Cut-off frequency 2kHz

    The “Master” volume is worth mentioning because I found it to be at “UNITY GAIN” when it was all the way up. Meaning that it doesn’t add any additional noise or hiss when all three channels are engaged, and with that said, this pedal can get very extreme when all three channels are engaged, (If that’s what you are going for).

    You can boost or cut these frequencies giving you a super-versatile tone monster effects box.

    To say that this pedal is versatile is a “HUGE” understatement!!!

    CONCLUSION:

    I’m having a lot of fun with this pedal and the more I jump into it the more I’m using it on projects that I would normally use something else.

    I like that all three channels are independent of each other, so it has been a very useful addition to my pedalboard. Being able to add boost and EQ to my other pedals makes the Alien Tone Dragon a bargain. This pedal will easily be the Swiss army knife on your board.

    The one thing I have always liked about Analog Alien products is that I can dial in tones that sound authentic to the style of music I’m writing/ recording or performing in.

    They are well built and well-designed products that allows my voice as a player to shine through.

    This is another great addition to the already legendary line of pedals and if you are looking for versatile pedal but don’t want to spend tons of time turning knobs, then this is the pedal for you.

    A guitarist’s pedalboard is prized real estate, and for space to be dedicated to an accessory, it has to be worthy. Make room for the Alien Tone Dragon, a multi-effects pedal from Analog Alien that will rock your universe. No review can prepare you for the actual experience of plugging in and hearing the sonic glory of this pedal for yourself. The overdrive has a depth and warmth that is truly unique. I quickly and easily dialed in killer sounds that ranged from Knopfer’s dirty tones to Satriani’s searing solos. The tone button, when engaged, can enhance the tone of your amplifier or even form the foundation of your sound. The third effect, the boost, elevates your volume with complete tonal integrity. The boost works excellently for highlighted sections, quieter tones, and of course, solos. Many of my gigs are at venues or events that include a backline. Analog Alien pedals allow me to achieve a quality and consistency in tone, regardless of the amplifier. The Alien Tone Dragon instantly became a favorite. This go-to pedal looks great, and it has player friendly control knobs to dial in any desired tone.
