Drag N fly DF-05 White Hots

Post by Fuzzz » Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:39 pm

Well I picked up one of the new DF05 'Fly's a few weeks back and have been absolutely loving it!! :freakout:

It's fitted with one of the new Magnatech AC127's ( not sure what the silicon tranny is.. ) and it absolutely screams!

Side by side with my '09 Fire Mist OC140 Fly, the White Hots has a touch more sparkle and slightly more pronounced upper mids and seems like it has more gain too.. The older Fire Mist sounds slightly softer to me and with a slightly looser low end..

Don't think I could choose a favourite, as they both sound amazing and the slight differences makes them cool in their different ways.. Although I was leaning towards the White Hots initially..

I usually use fuzz into a mostly clean amp, with just a bit of grit, but oh my god I will never look back now I have run these 'Fly's into a dirty amp!! Unbelievably good!

I have been setting the Level at max and the Filter at 9 o'clock and the Attack at 10 o'clock, so its kind of a booster, but adjusting the Attack and Filter can take it from a nice crunch to all out sludge - its awesome!!! :headbanger:

I can't say enough good things about this pedal really. The Drag N fly is definitely my favourite D*A*M pedal - I am only now just beginning to realise how versatile it is too! :party:

Thanks to the Captain for creating another awesome installment of fuzz and also to Jon at Downstroke, who is a pleasure to deal with! :cheers: :award:

So do you have 3 DnFs now? :headbanger:

Makes me feel better that you have a bunch now since I did take the one you wanted :fu:

:whistle: (yes)

... I think missing out on your blue Drag N Fly traumatised me and so I went a bit nuts.. :hihi: :smashed:

I have Sola MKII (number 6 from the first batch :headbanger: ) on the way so I think I might be cured now! :paranoid:

Dang! That's a nice score! WAY earlier than the one I have. I wish I had 3 Drag N Flys (just have the one)...

Yeah I am really chuffed with that myself! I got it today and so far I am just blown away with the tone in the MKII. It really is as good as all the hype! :headbanger:

If you like, I can sell you a 'Fly, that way we both have two! :hihi:

Think I may be re-assessing my recent acqusitions in a week or so, as I never expected that I would be picking up a Sola so soon..! :whistle:

Haha that might be interesting, I do like Flys, shoot me a PM if you decide that, we will see. I am always tempted, but I need to be reminded I need to save for my $1,100 Cornish order...

Congrats again on the Sola though! They are great, great fuzzes!
