Dimebag tribute decals removeable???
Hi guys, I know this has probably been asked before, but I wanted
to know if the tribute crest decal on the FBD headstock is removable or if it is
painted on? I want to trade my 2 tone Razorback for one but I
don't care for the decals.
Randall Warhead owners.....in here quick!
ok now that I got your attention, could any of you that own the original Warhead please post your clips and settings, along with any outboard gear your using. I'm looking at getting one, but am unsure right now. So I need some nudging.
New Dime material this year?
on Wed Nov 08, 2006 3:59 pm
Anyone hear anything about Vinnie or Rita releasing any new Dime material in December? I thought I read awhile back where they were talking about releasing something every year on December 8th on his behalf. Dimevision II etc....

Hi there ppl
Anyone here use ADA Mp-1 if yes, can anyone give me a good patch to dime tone.
If you don't use ADA MP-1 can at least give me some help in the Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence settings?
I know dimes have a heavy bass sound and a scooped mid sound but when I here musics like CFH, Domination, Walk, New Level etc etc they don't have that REALY SCOOPED "DEATH METAL" sound?!
Oh and another little thing Dime used more Treble or more Presence?
In ADA MP-1: Bass center at 180Hz, Mid center at 600Hz, Treb center at 1.6kHz, Presence center at 3kHz
Just to give you and idea, I also have a Behringer EQ700 Equalizer
So if you ppl can help just post, please...
Someone has offered to let me buy a Washy dimeslime 332 w/ floyd and hard case for 600 bucks
its in excellent condition, but i have no idea about washys quality or what the fiddle is worth. Seems like it has washy zebra pickups in it though.
What you guys think?
what did Rex use to get that crunch sound for the latest Crowbar and the last Down II?
P.S.T. 88 lyrics

i know that you can't find them in the web so if anybody have them post them pleaseeeeee

So since my Razorback arrived I've obviously been having a go at doing some of Dime's signature harmonic squeals (since I've not had a guitar with a floating bridge before).
I've been looking around the fret-board for harmonics on the G string (I assume this is the main string that's used - has dime used any others?) and I've got harmonics on the 5th, 7th, 9th (same as 4th), 12th and 17th.
I'm sure there are others I'm missing, but I can't seem to pull them off.
More specifically, harmonic squeal on the 2nd fret, G string. I know the harmonic's there as I've had it before when playing Heresy (admittedly on a different string).
Any tips for pulling them off a bit more slickly, and on the more - shall we say - obscure frets?
I have an rg80es white , and it sounds like it doesn't have dime gain. I also have mxr 6band eq, b&b l-500xl. What kinda mods are available? Sounds nice, bur harmonics don't have enough gain.
Aslo tried dimarzio evolutions whish rip in the harmonixs dept, same result. Marker???
I want to get a tattoo with Dimebag's signature like it appears on his products he endorses. Does anyone have a good size pic of it? I know his sig is on the DR strings and the Warhead amps and such, but I cannot seem to find a good pic.

We decided to open the topus for CIS (commonwelath of independent countries)territory) on this forum:
There is no limitations to write inside of this node.
We just want to unite all the guys inside of here (not only) to write here:
HelllYearh!!! We Getchapulll!!! Let`s exchange about some news about CIS how to get new eq`s and something else:
Video on Dimebag's Hard Rock Induction
Found it here... some of the audio is a little hard to make out at times though.
some great video..with Rita and Vinnie. and the guitar is beautiful. Rita refers to it as "a replica of his Dean guitar".
can you get some pretty damn good squeals on it? I talked to a Guitar center guy and he said it sounds identical to the FBD. Is that true?
I didn't know that they played this live and I saw them on every tour...
What pickups did Dime use before the BL's ?
I've read somewhere that it was Duncan Distortions
but the guys over at the Duncan forum claims it
to be a JB.
this is cool
on Sun Nov 12, 2006 5:53 pm
I saw this article, thought it was cool. Wish it had links to picshttp://www.heraldsun.com/orange/10-784407.html

I was looking for info on the song "Believer" that Dime did with Sebastian Bach, and I found this page on his website....some really good Dime stories in there, great read.
New guitar in the house..
on Mon Nov 13, 2006 9:29 pm
Man I think I was the first on Iceland to lay my hands on that WARMACHINE. Can't take it off me, it's grown stuck
Anyways, I didn't take like many close-ups pictures or anything like that because you've seen it before here on the forum. It's all the same goodshit.
Than I made a good line.
Why drink and drive, when you can play and fly.. with DEAN!
Anyways, I thank deanguitars and our brother Dime for making me proud and glad, and full-fill my life with passion.
I had a topic a while back on this but it died, does anyone own the warhead 4x12 with the hi-pass input?
Once we sell my friend's Mesa Boogie Stilletto he wants to buy 2 RG100ES.
Which Rg sounds the best? the carpeted one? the black tolex one? the Rg100HT?
If anyone has some to sell let me know.
Dimebag tribute at Unholy Alliance!
on Thu Nov 16, 2006 12:43 pm
I was at the Unholy Alliance yesterday (which kicked supreme ass!!) And at the end of the show the showed a huge picture of Dime with his cracked mirror guitar and they played Cemetary Gates! \m/ I sang along till my throat hurt and headbanged a whooole tonn!
i was wondering what dimes setup was.. i know he used the BLxl500's for the neck and bridge during alot of cowboys from hell and i know he switched to seymour duncans during vulgar display and i was wondering what seymour duncan he used.. and does anyone know his pedal setup?
anyone know where i can get one ,or have one for sale ??I thought i found a bunch at a old sound company but they where just old furman crossovers....pq3 or 4 im leaning more towrds a 4
I recorded this with my Pod XT Live
I downloaded the "I'm Broken" effect, it sounds pretty sexy!
I love this effects box
Coincidence that freaked me out...
A friend of mine stopped by the party patio at my house this weekend, and dropped off a magazine for me to browse through, I didn't give it much thought because I already have a boat, but yesterday morning while drinking my coffee, I started to flip through the pages and on about the 10th page in I noticed a boat advertisement for a PANTERA II. I started to flip the page then stopped and saw the name of the guy driving it...JAMES NIGGEMEYER... PANTERA II ????WTF?
so, I looked at the cover to see it was the DECEMBER issue...
man, Coincidence or wHAT?
And here's the boat ad...Freaked me the F out.
I haven't investigated this much further that this post, but whoa, you know...
2 years ago tonight 11-20-04 The Dean Dime interview + pics
Two years ago tonight November 20, 2004 at The Rave in Milwaukee Wisconsin the Dean-Dime interview was conducted.
Click the link below and scroll down to watch parts 1 and 2.
It's incredibly hard to believe it's been that it's been two years already.
Here are some photos from that night. The following night in Chicago would be the last night I would see and hang out with my friend and the worldwide guitar hero we all know as DIME.
We all still love and miss you deeply my friend.
DIme being interviewed by Dean's son as seen above in the link.
Another taken during the interview
Dean Z, DIME and "Wires"

New guitar day!!! Dean USA DFH!!! UPDATE: Pics now on page 3
No piccies just yet but just to say the guitar has now arrived and is right infront of me. I'll post up my opinion of it further in the thread as a new reply so that any replies to that post can be answered in what would look like a more sensible order!
All I can say is Dean USA > anything else I have ever played thus far!
(Original Thread Starting Post)
Hey people how's it going. I'm James.
Been intrigued by Dean for quite a while (thanks to Dime if I'm being honest) and decided to give them a spin.
I've been using Custom Shop ESP mostly of late and I hope the guitar I ordered today is up to par with it
I contacted our distributor (I work for a guitar shop) and he managed to source a new USA DFH for me
I'll make sure to post pics and a comparison review of the Dean vs the ESP when it arrives.

I bought this amp off ebay for $130 and now im wondering if its the same as the RG100. I know its a different wattage, but i mean as far as tone. I know, i should have asked before buying, but oh well

Randall Cyclone and Titan
Alright, so after a little more than an hour with the search button, I have some questions that I was hoping some of you guys can answer.
I read that the Warhead and the Cyclone are similarly voiced, which I alread new, but I also read that The Titan is similarly voiced to the X2. Can someone please clear this up for me?
Also does anyone have any experience with either that would tell me what they think of them. I'm not going to take your word for it, but I'd like an opinion. I can't find one near me to try out, since they are discontinued.

MXR 6 band EQ?
on Sat Nov 25, 2006 11:47 pm
For anyone that's tried the vintage and newer MXR 6 band EQ pedals; are the vintage blue MXR 6 bands really alot better than the new ones? Or is it just a bunch of BS?
New ink. My first
on Sun Nov 26, 2006 1:54 am
I always believed it important to get a tattoo that means something to you. I'm one of those guys that is into the motive more than the art.
I'm no Dime sheep. Cowboys from Hell is the album that got me listening to the music I do today. It's what got me interested in playing my guitar and recording and producing sound. I hope to make all three of those my careers in the future. I plan on going to a prestigious recording arts school so I can live my dream. It's also in tribute to the man that inspires me so much, but not completely dedicated to him.
I have plans for other tattoos with meaning behind them in the near future.
Wobbly tremolo on a lefty FBD.....
Ok, I am getting sick of this "loose" whammy bar
feeling everytime I use it. I had to tighten the
nut on the tremolo twice since I bought the guitar
almost a year ago. I used teflon tape on the threads
of the whammy bar, still no good. The bar has play
in it. Does anyone know where the website is
for that upgraded tremolo bar? Left handed, BTW.
Dimes razorblade necklace...
I'm looking for a razorblade necklace like dime's. I read online that it was a gift from Rita and that she got it from a shop in Arlington TX in early 1988. Ive looked on ebay ahd IMOSH but only found the small ones, and Im looking for one as big as dime's was. If anyone knows where I can get one that size, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Difference between Crybaby from hell DB01 and DB02?
Hi everyone, does somedy the difference between those two wahs? Befor seeing one DB02 for sale on ebay, I didn't even know there was a DB02....
i have had my dime-o-flame on lay away. and today was my birthday. and it turns out my mom paid of the ret of the money for my birthday present.
Anyone sick of people exploiting Dimebag's name for profit?
on Tue Nov 28, 2006 3:47 am
I mean, nearly every damn Randall head or piece of gear he used on ebay you see Dimebag's name in the title and description, it's rediculous.
Someone clear my mind please! DFH p'up question.
I'm not 100% clued up on the BL USA vs Bill & Becky thing.
I've noticed that many favour one while there are also plenty supporting the other.
I read that Dime used both of these? Can anyone confirm that? Which was it predominantly?
Also, more to the point, which is it that is at the bridge position of my Dean USA DFH? That's where I'm lost!
Last thing - my local store sells a Bill Lawrence L500XL. Who is this from? I believe I read somewhere that you can only get the Bill & Becky one's direct from them so I assume my shop's one must be a BLUSA?
I was wondering if this was a good deal, and worth it for me to drive 2 hours to pick it up.
I don't know what year it is, maybe one of you guys would know.
on Wed Nov 29, 2006 12:48 pm
