    I'm trying to determine the version of the Dragon head I have. I read somewhere that "Serial#'s F01437 and higher is v5", but there's no list of Serial Numbers for what the prior versions were that I can find on google.

    My amplifier has the following information;
    Outside sticker:
    SN: F01013

    Inside Sticker:
    Framus Dragon 100w
    4/8 Ohm Impedence
    Serial Number : B 19465 04

    Regards,

    Ryan (born2rock4life)

    HI Ryan,

    B 19465 04 is from 2004 so its Version 3
    Welcome to the forum, brother!

    You rock, thanks Florin! I'm glad to hear it's a v3. I didn't realize how sought after it was until doing research recently and it made me curious :)

    Thanks everyone! I got the Framus Dragon head not long ago when I sniped one on craigslist. Picked up the Dragon head, the Mesa 4x12, TC Electronic G System, and then added in some of my old rack gear I kept from my previous rig. Here's some pics of both. IMAG0201.jpg IMAG0650_2.jpg

    Wow...

    Looks like gear for mass destruction. Nice.

    Thanks man! My band Rite To Remain released a demo track you can listen to on the Pot of Gold Music Festival website. We ended up landing the gig by a major stroke of luck of a national band dropping off the show.

    Hey guys! Not sure why it took me so long to find this...but I have the same question. I've had my Dragon for about 5 years and I've always wondered what version. It's SN F00706, and does not have the external bias probes. How do I bias this beast?

    Hi Juhuff,

    This is from December 2001, so Version 2 :)
    Have to ask about bias...

    Hello, just got a framus dragon with creme-yellow-ish tolex factory applied I think. It's a 00150 (or 00158? can't remember it's in the studio now) serial number.

    Version? This thread and the other with the red wima caps dragon has my curiosity stirred to open it up.

    I am sure I will receive ridicule for resurrecting such an old thread but I have had zero luck determining what version my Dragon is and hope to find an answer here with you fine folks!

    Serial Number F01584....external bias points.

    Hi buddy,
    There should be a second Serial# on the housing - format like x-xxxxx-yy
    If the year is bigger than 03 then it's Version 3

    But I think it is already DRAGON 3 after may 2003

    Thanks for the reply! Is the other serial number on a sticker or engraved? I cannot find one anywhere!

    Also, the circuit boards have COBRA printed on them. Hmmmmmm

    Hi people! My Dragon serial is F00497. I reckon it's a V1. Can you confirm?
