What pickup is that, its not a blade pickup, not a active, and no poles exposed.

Don't have a bigger one, sorry.

Here is a link i couldnt figure out how to insert a pic here let me me know your feedback
I've been watching Goc's videos and other's on youtube playing Dimes solo's and I was wondering what I can do to improve my accuracy and help myself play these solo's. For example I got the solo to Revolution down after 4 hours and I'm approching 1 hour on the CFH solo. I can do the stretch from hell but I can't play it as fast as Dime. I usually play GnR solos and the bluesy medium paced kind. I really admire Dimes playing and would love nothing more than to be able to play his solos. I was learning Cemetary gates yesterday and never had a problem until I got up to the ripping part in the solo again. I'm kind of frusterated right now but I'm still trying.
Thanks for the info on the woobly trem issue. I finally
decided to get one of those locking tremolos from
I heated up the arm so I can bend it about 45* the
opposite direction to make it "lefty".
Since it had to be heated up, it left heat marks on it.
I decided to sand the arm and I like the way it looks.
It's not chrome but more like a brushed aluminum
I know some of you have probably seen this. What I find around the web are short clips from this.
In the sticky above 1 guy mentioned this and no-one replied. I'm sure some of you will be happy I uploaded this beast. Enjoy Dime Lovers!!
Guitar players.....Dimebag Solo lick (Damageplan area)
Is there people in here that are able to play the licks he plays at 0:37
it sounds frippin amazing???
Where can I get a case for my dean without pay'n $130? I really need a case so I can take it to gigs without worry'n about snap'n the head.
can somebody help a brotha out? Slimebolt pics??
my computer crashed and I had a few pics that I need that I was using for a refin project but I lost them
I'm looking for some pics of the Washburn Slimebolt .
There were two big pics I had and they were perfect but now gone!
I've done a search on here and on google and not found anything, and I forgot where these pics were posted, can somebody help me out?
I'm considering a doubler for my lead tone are there any that are goods and affordable? Im not really looking to buy now I'm just exploring options.
Ive been wondering this for ahwile. Anybody know? Scottish? Irish? Black Indonesian?
ive noticed how dime had a piece of thick black foam under the strings on the head of the DFH. i was trying to figure out if there was a reason or not. i tried it just so see if it made a difference considering i had a small buzz on my low e that i couldnt seam to get rid of. now when i have the foam on the head the buzz isnt noticable.
can anyone tell me what his reason was for doing this?
Dimebag june '96 Guitar World interview
on Wed Mar 07, 2007 7:40 am
Can anyone post the excerpt from the '96 june issue of Guitar World where he talks about his setup on Trendkill?
Or maybe a link?
fyi: Good prices on Randall
I know people in this area of the forum like Randall so I thought I'd take it upon myself to fill everyone in. While shopping for a 412 speaker cabinet I found a store that beat everybodies prices. Even after the shipping it was worth it. I live near Ottawa and it wasen't worth driving the hour and a half to pick it up in person. Of course this applies to Canadian members but who knows it might be worth it for our friendly neighbours as well. PM for particulars.
anyone use torrents?

I'm looking at buying a flanger doubler and was wondering what the heck they sound like. So far tey seem to have a flange effect and a small delay effect. Couldn't i just get that sound using my fl-9 flanger and my boss dd-3?

Head over to the new Deans section for pics and a review
2 new DIMEBAG Dean magazine ads in stores now
For all you Dime fans, there are 2 new DEAN 30th anniversary ML ads circulating featuring photos that I took of Dime back in October of 2004 near his home. You've probably seen the photos before, but I figured I;d let you know that you find them in a few different magazines right now.
This is the newest one, it can be found in the April issue of Revolver
This one is in the current Guitar World, and has also recently been in Guitar One, Guitar Player and a few others.
NEW DIMEBAG SOLO COVER!!!
on Fri Mar 09, 2007 3:48 pm
this time: SHATTERED!
Pantera Voted Best Band Ever
I searched but could not find a post on this, sorry if I missed it.
What was ran in Dime's effects loop?
What did Dime run through his effects loop?
Will any parametric eq help to achieve Dime's tone or does it have to be a Furman. Those thing are hard to find. I've found one from a company called RANE for $90.
Razorback 255 Dimeslime?
on Sat Mar 10, 2007 10:34 pm
On the site it says dimeslime finish. Anyone seen this guitar? I have the slime bumble bee so I know it isn't that.
Your favourite Dime tone?
What's your favourite Dimebag tone? Can be from any album, live show etc.
Personally I think his Moscow tone was the best, absolutely bowel quaking!!
on Sun Mar 11, 2007 4:43 pm
Fitted a SD '59 in the neck of my Razorback yesterday and, after restringing and tuning up again, what better way to test it all out than with Walk?
Using the Dimebucker for the verses and choruses, and the '59 for the solo. Played it in drop D rather than standard D because...well, the RB is floyded, innit? Don't want to have to set it all up for one
Also decided to go for the 101 Live-style outro. Much less boring to play.
Vid. goes a little out of synch around the end of the solo, dunno why.
this is a washy tho.......
i will make some vids with this later.
EDIT........i made a vid.check it out.
sorry for some mistakes.
next time, i make some vid for clean tone.
familiar to FM333 and DIME 3 USA.

I have a Randall Warhead & Cylcone incoming, settings pl
I am new to this forum so let me start out by saying hello
I have been on a big solid state kick lately and I have sold all my tube amps for a bunch of solid state amps. Anyway I have a randall cyclone and a orginal warhead without the pull out gain boost coming from ebay that I won last week. I was wondering if anyone has any suggested settings for getting some heavy dime like tones.
I will be using it with two recto 4 x 12 cabs, various gibson guitars, I also have a couple of peavy 31 band eq's and one tubescreamer pedal for a booster.
I have heard that these are both very difficult amps to dial in at first, I just thought I would see if anyone has some insight that they would like to share.
I am curious how these measure up to my two ampeg VH140-C's, randall RG-80es, and my RM-100 that is for sale. Right now the VH140-C is the closet I have ever gotten to dime's tone with any amp I have ever owned, actually its really close with just a 31 band eq in the loop. I hope these newer randall's kick some butt as well, as I am really looking forward to doing some recording with these.
Thanks in advance for any settings help or any insight on what to expect on these amps.
i was just wondering what's your favorite dime of all time?
so what's your favorite dime guitar of all time?the last poll only had 4 guitars,this one has more........so here you go guys,ENJOY!
on Wed Mar 14, 2007 4:51 am
Whats a cheap randall head that I can get decent tone out of, I know I'll probably have to boost it or something so whats a good combo?
octive on mouth for war solo?
Hey can anyone help me out? When i play the solo for mouth. i use the G#5 octive shape on the 3rd string 4th fret. I know that Dime would play an octive that was higher up the neck around the 16th fret area. Can someone hook me up with the location of that octive. Thanks
Does anyone have a good photo of the COORS ML?? That`s the guitar in the middle of the three seen in this picture......
I can`t remember ever seeing a photo or video of Dime playing this axe...
Yeah, flame me if you want but its for a grade in guitar class (no joke). Can anybody school me on the origin of Dime's nickname, the Diamond Darrell era too if possible...thanks much and sorry in advance for the dumb question.

Dimebag solo cover (The sleep)
on Wed Mar 14, 2007 10:33 pm
I'm a noob and I love dimebag's playing so this is an attempt to play his solo correctly.
P.S. It was filmed wit goc's camera
Century 200 on the bay, and i'm broke
maybe 1 of y'all can buy this and hold it 4 me??? j/k
Since there is no amp section and I know I could of put in in the "other" sections but most of yall have Randall heads. I just got an RH200SC and a R412CXM for $500. I also have a Peavey cab that is rated a 16ohm mono - 8ohm stereo. Will that head work on that cab and how can I make it a 8ohm mono. Can I just change the speakers to 8ohm or do I have to re-wire it. I want one cab at practice and one at my house.
What is your favorite Dime head??
I figured if there is a guitar one, maybe there should be a Head one too!! :
I'm sure you've saw it before, but tonight was my first sight, and damn, she's a beauty.
common guys,you know the stealth looks badass,but wouldn't it look more badass with the dean logo on the headstock?that brings me to ask............do you guys think dean would ever make one?
79 ML w/FloydRose Question
Thinkin about buying a '79 ML $600 can some one give me the low down on it ! Will i need to trash the pickups right away is the floydRose weak? or is it a dream?
i just got off limewire downloading some songs and i came across about 10 pre cowboys songs. i found stuff like all over tonight, burn, rock the world and ect.
i figured id let some of yous know. i for one dont have any of there albums (i cant find them, i wish i had them) and i figured id let people know that there avaluable on limewire.
any one suggest anything?
I'm wondering if Dean's gonna discontinue the production of the DFH?
I love my Dean, I mean I looooove my Dean, It's loaded with EMG 81/85, but I also have a schecter classic with a JB/Jazz combination. When I play the schecter it has amazing high end cut your throat, balls to the muthafu*#'n walls tone, but when I plug the Dean in it sounds hollow, lacking the highs. Is that the nature of the pickups? Or do I have a wiring problem? On clean it sounds good but on the gain channel it's missing that ...... chainsaw tone if ya know what I mean. It has a new battery. I'm asking yall cause this is the only forum I trust.
Long Live The 6-String
PS. My new Randall with my rack is intese
I have my tone now
Pickup height adjustments
Hey Metal head brothers!
When you install a bl or a dimebucker do you guys do the whole Low E at 3/32 give or take and the High E at 1/16?
or do you do it the way dime had his which looked like the Low E side of the bridge pup was pretty far from the strings!?
let me know whats up
because the sound you get when adjusting can make a huge difference.
Anyone else think this shirt is in poor taste?Judging by the DH on it I would assume it's being made by Dimebag Hardware.I just think it's morbid...

All over tonight- Vintage Pantera video
on Mon Mar 19, 2007 1:09 am
Hey peepz- not sure if that has been posted yet or not, I apologize if it has. But I saw this and thought Id share
By Demons Be Driven clips... ( VH140-C, Warhead, Rg-80es )
I did five clips over the weekend of By Demons Be Driven ( my way ) with my newly acquirred warhead, and my old VH140-C and RG-80es. Some clips even mix two amps together.
All clips are single tracked w/ two mics in stereo, all clips are with my gibson explorer with stock pickups and oversized recto 4 x 12 cab. The one VH140-C clip with EMG-81 in its title is with my vintage mahganoy LP studio w/ zakk wylde pu's, the rest are all gibson explorer & 500T pu.
Anyway, I didnt always play my best cause I was in a hurry, plus I suck anyways. But its fun sometimes just to hear some different tones.
Anyways I would appreciate anyone who takes a listen and give me some feedback on whether it sucks or not, or whats good, and what needs to be added / improved.
does anyone know if there are going to be more dime or ml limited runs comming out later this year or next year?
made 2 vids
on Mon Mar 19, 2007 10:22 pm
i made 2 vids with my new "CROSS".
check 'em out.
there are many mistakes though.......
for distortion tone.
for clean tone.
about how much do the 4 pre-cowboy albums go for?
and were can i get these albums?
can anyone suggest a solo to learn. ive already learned walk, cowboys from hell, 1st fade to black solo, all the solo's in one and a bunch of other metallica. im mainly looking for pantera stuff. so im looking for something thats kinda simple but fun.
Interview with Dime and Phil

Just a good interview I found on youtube with Phil and Dime.
Damn, phil seemed like such a cool guy back then.
Dime has always been cool
Good Friends... live video
on Tue Mar 20, 2007 10:35 pm
I love this song, I never heard it live before!
I just jammed on my new Randall Cyclone....
Its almost exactly the same as my orginal warhead. I mean like 99% the same sound. The only differences I could get out of it after playing it for only 20 minutes on lunch break were....
1. Cylone has a little more gain, it will do metal without a boost, where as the warhead needs a boost. The later warhead versions have a pull out gain boost so I assume it then gets to cyclone levels. Not really a big difference in gain between the two, the cyclone still sounds much better with a boost if you ask me.
2. Cyclone is not as muddy as the warhead. The main reason the warhead needs a boost because it is muddy without it. The cyclone isnt muddy without a boost unless you go crazy with the bass. Again adding a boost makes more if not all the bass useable without being muddy.
3. The voicing is a TINY bit different. The warhead has a touch of that dimebag twang you can dial in if you want, where as the cyclone doesnt quite have that as much. They still sound like 99% the same though.
4. The mids seem to be a TAD smoother on the cyclone, again I think that has to do with the warhead having a slightly different preamp to sound more like Dime.
I think I am going to run a bad monkey with the cyclone for a boost for some variation in tone, as I use a tubescreamer with the warhead. But I know I will be using the cyclone without a boost sometimes too, thats when the cyclone starts to sound more different than the warhead is when you dont use a boost. When I was using both amps with my tubescreamer it would be very hard if not impossible to distinguish one from the other.
Overall I havent really got into this amp much because I havent really played much at all, but its defiantly a keeper because I snagged it for dirt cheap. Plus it will be very cool for recording with the warhead in stereo because they both have essentually the same sound. I could do mids up with one and mids scooped a little with the other for a cool stero sound.
Another thumbs up
More pantera clips to come, I cant wait for the weekend......
Randall Rg100es drop in mods available now
on Wed Mar 21, 2007 7:45 pm
hey dudes, just wanted to let you know that I just completed the first run of the diode modification(CFHmod). These are drop in chips that come with full instruction on how to mod your RG. Also available are basic footswitches that have one switch for changing channels. I did away with the "both channels on" feature. These are killer and are $40 apiece. This footswith will make the Led's on your amp work and switch between the two channels.The drop in diode mods are $25. If you are interested, give me a pm and let me know. Thanks dudes!
This is probably a stupid question, but Does anyone know how the 500XL in the Dean From Hell is installed?
I know Dime flipped his with the hot blade toward the neck, but I don't know if they do that in the production model and I really want that crunch tone you get when you flip it.
Ever seen DIME use this guitar live?
I remember seeing DIME with this guitar in interviews and articles around the release of Reinventing The Steel. But can`t remember ever seeing him play it live. Anyone got pics? please post:-) It`s an ultra cool finish on that axe!
why the Damageplan and DBH forums are still down?
favor from rg80 es or rg100es owners
There is a resistor insisde these amps that goes from the speaker out jack to the reverb tank. it;s like 18 ohm 10% something. I checked radio shack for a replacement, but they have none. Can anyone point me to a new one of these?
USA SOUTHERN CROSS.....(NDC)
I know its not cheap, but it is one from the original run of what was supposed to be limited to 100. A bit out of my range for sure. Still less than BSG was selling them for.
Help Needed With Randall RG100ES
I am having some issues, and I am wondering if any of you can help.
My RG has been acting weird latley. Sometimes i get muffled tone when i turn it on.
If i bang on it, it resumes back to normal most of the time. if i tap on the transistor
pots on the back of the amp, it gets better. Do you guys think the transistors or caps
might be going bad? the caps aren't leaking at all.
Does anyone happen to have a schematic, or part #'s to the transistors and caps so i can
get some replacements?
Also, I am looking for the manual online and no one seems to have it. Can anyone hook me up with a PDF file?

*RE-POSTED* Pantera Live At Donnington 1994 (MP3s)
I found the live set of Pantera at Donnington (Monsters Of Rock Festival) 1994.
My girlfriend recorded it for me off the Radio at the time (as I was there!).
I found it on an old cassette tape and cleaned it up a little!
Hope you all enjoy!
so which amp has better tone straight out of the box? and does anyone know if dimebag used the treble pull switch on the rg?
official 101 live recorded using rg100es?
i have read somewhere on here that dime used the rg100es live when the official 101 live was recorded? hmmmmmmm
Ampeg VH140-C Garage days clips......
The first clip the playing wasnt too bad, for me anyways. I had the ampeg's mid knob at noon, see link for more gear details.
The next two clips the playing wasnt very good, I was playing over a guitar pro file and when the solo came on it was so loud I couldnt hear the rythem guitar or the bass anymore so I totally got lost on where I was in a few parts. Oh well next time I will tweak the guitar pro file so the solo aint so loud and I will do a much better job.
Anyway the ampeg's mids were maxed on these two clips. They are both the same except one has the backing track mixed louder than the other, let me know which sounds like it has a better mix going on. Because I am not that good at mixing things down and stuff.
Same clip with backing track not as loud.
All comments, tips & suggestions welcome. Let me know what you guys think of the tone
Or you could just go here and check out all my clips...
I just bought an old RG80ES 1/4 stack and was wondering (since there isn't a manual) if I could use the line out signal into a POD for cabinet emulation. I'm guessing that I can also disconnect the cab since the head is SS.
I do a lot of home recording, and there is no way I can crank the amp up to mic it.
Any previous experience/feedback is appreciated.
I'v narrowed it down to the Dime Disto
What do yall think of the pedal?
MXR Flanger/Doubler question
ive got one on the way. and does it really beef up the sound and make it clearer? or is it just make a little difference?
on Tue Mar 27, 2007 7:50 am
Hey fellas I've been looking around (with no success) for somewhere to buy the hat that dimebag wore. Not the trucky one, but the one that was like a cowboy one with the horns on it? I think he wore it at the reinventing the steel concerts
Anyway can someone link me to where I could buy one?
what would it be if you plugged into either inputs and no sound? think it might be an easy fix?
I still have't made up my mind on this because I haven't heard it.
I need some sound clips of someone playing with it and then without so I can tell the difference of boost.
(faster than) Dimebag Tribute Video
what do you guys think?
Randall RG100ES Carpeted VS. Tolex
Which sounds better and whats the difference other than the appearence?
might have a problem with my Rg100es
maybe its just me. but i dont use the treble pull switch on my amp. and i'll have my boost stuff going on and go to turn the volume up on the amp and it sounds kinda like it loses a hair of volume and also kinda sounds like the treble switch is pulled. BUT it sounds almost like the great southern trendkill. maybe it's just me. i hope oh yeah i dont know if this would have anything to do with it but i really havent even got to turn the amp up past 2, and it seems to make the "change" after the amp hits 3? hmm hell i dont know what to do keep jamming on it and see if it keeps doing it or should i take it to a repair man?
question for Randall Rg100es owners
i need to know if anyone else's rg100es head's tone changes after you turn it past 2 with the treble switch not pulled? mine does and it seems to have the chainsaw distortion more? or could it be a problem.
but its kinda cool cause it sound almost identical to trendkill.
Anyone here have High quality Dimebag pictures?
High quality = Large Size, clear image, very usable for many types of graphics arts.
I'm asking this because I'm making some Dime Signatures and I can only find small, and low resolution images.
anyone have dime's Rg100es trendkill amp setting?
I had to write a poem for school, so I wrote one about Dime.
Its a Sonnet poem and here it is-
“Dimebag” Darrell (R.I.P.)
You are gone and what can we do?
We are sitting here missing you.
You did no wrong,
All you did was make the best song.
You played like no other,
And your brother was your drummer.
You played a fret frenzy,
Nathan (The Killer) was just plain crazy.
We can’t believe you are gone,
You were a Heavy Metal Icon.
We want to be like you,
We can’t believe your life is through.
Thinking of that night makes me want gag,
Rest in Piece “Dimebag.”
anybody in existence have a picture of his pq-3 that isnt a damageplan picture? doubtful........but would love to be proved wrong.
oh yes its MXR flanger/doubler time
finally got mine in cost me $460.00 for it. yes i know my nuts got torn off for it. but i hope it's worth it. hope hope
got my 2nd Rg100es head today.
i checked the date on it. 87' didn't notice it looked slightly different than my 89' until i stacked it on top of the other. and also a few knobs are scratchy when i turn them so what would i need to clean them? and do i take the knobs off and spray where the knobs turn to clean them and make the noise stop?
Randall RG200es Sound Clip!!!!
Aight here it is, Randall RG200es soundlip... there were soundclips but the other ones got corrupted so Ill re-do em another time. It was recorded with an MXL studio condensor into a Korg d-1200 with some post effect delay. Let me know what you guys think!
They couldve chosen a better shot
This pic could seem a little suspect to the uninformed
Dime seems mighty proud of himself
new randalls VS. old randalls?
so what would be better rg100es vs. V2, or century 200 vs. T2
so which one.
ive got 2 rg's and am still not satisified with the sound. too muddy. lacks the razor sharp edge. and lacking " something"
so im thinking of trying the new T2
how does the new T2 take to outboard EQ's?
does anybody have any info? do they get muddy like the RG's or do they take well to EQ's like the Century 200's? info info
They knew how to start a show....

I sadly never did see neither Pantera or Damageplan. I guess most of you have already seen this, but I just felt really happy seeing this. It's Pantera in Chile 98 and they play Walk as the opener. They just walk on stage, saying hello like they knew each person in the crowd. And the crowd is amazing!! Really, really cool.

anybody have a PQ-4 they want to get rid of?
