edited::it doesn't work.something wrong.
i uploaded it again.
Don't flame me,I know they're Washburns,but man....I'd sell a kidney for these beauties
Ok ,So I have heard that dime used 250 k pots in his guitars which made no sence to me because it would just cut some of the output.Can anyone with a dime guitar tell if its a 500 or 250.Im pretty sure the deans use a 500k pot.Anyway here is the thing i broke a string on my les paul to lazy to fix it i pick up my dad's 69 fender tele and hook it up to my dime rig at full stage volume and it cut perfectly enough for me to get up and stop and post this.I cant imagine how it would sound threw my les paul with l 500xl and a 250 k pot i have a 500k in it now.Just an idea ,let me know what you think.My tech said a 250 k would just cut the output but i may try it out anyway
Anyone else have one ?I can get some cool flanger doubler settings out of it.I read somewhere that the doubler goes from 17 ms to 70 so i keep it in that range sounds pretty good for a digital unit pretty warm .
What tuning did Dime use most?
I kno that Dime used Dropped D and down one whole step.. but what tuning did he use most.. not just between the two listed above???
i was just wondering what guitar it was. thought it looked pretty cool
Insanely creepy Dime vid...
Hey guys.. I was watchin the Floods solo and i noticed something weird...
.. watch it and pause it at 1:41 and look above the scrolling logo... creepy.
Dime Playing A Jackson Randy Rhoads "RR-5"
Have not seen this picture before. Apparently the guitar and rig belonged to the band playing a JGilligans that night. Cool to see Dime playing a Rhoads guitar though as Randy was a huge influence.
Could someone photoshop me a picture of a Dime-O-Flame with '81 '85 EMGs. Its something that I'm currently working on to become a reality.
Anyone have a Century 170?
How is it compared to the 200? Does it have alot of gain? I have a rh100 now. Any info would be great before I try to get it.

Thanks in advance!!
new jaguar speakers Vs. old jaguars speakers
anyone know if they sound the same or if the old ones are better? i originally was going to get jaguar speakers and they were back ordered. i believe still are. at least everywhere ive looked. but i ended up going with the celestion vintage 30's.
Have y'all seen Dream Theater covering Cemetary Gates?
on Thu Apr 05, 2007 5:26 pm
(with advanced apologies if this has already been posted)
My comments: at first I was cringing at the thought of James LaBrie singing the bad*ss parts, fortunately the singers from SymphonyX and Fear Factory came out to save him. Petrucci is technically a good player but I don't get the intensity coming from him like I do with Dime. Maybe it's because Dream Theater is the visual equivalent of watching an orchestal concert. There might be a lot going on musically, but you might as well be watching a still picture. Mustaine comes out and does the main part of Dime's solo. I personally think that Mustaine doesn't have a lot to offer as a lead guitarist. All in all, playing Cemetary Gates in Texas is a nice gesture, but ultimately it falls flat.
If you want to see a cover with an intense lead guitar, check out Paul Gilbert playing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
okay just wanted to see what everyone thinks about the signal chain which comes first mxr or furman ?Let see what is most common i know what i think..
I kno this has probably been posted before.. but what do u think is a possible scenario if Dime and Vinnie both Joined Megadeth?
how much different is the black mxr 6 band compared to the vintage blue version? I had the blue version but it was way too noisy, and I cant afford a 10 band so im thinking about getting a black 6 band, are they good eq's?
god really starting to give up.
man i dont know what the hell is going on but it seems like both my randall rg100es's dont want to sound consistent. the other night i happened to turn the volume up a hair and the volume dropped just a little and it sounded more distorted like CFH and trendkill. and i was amazed at the sound that was coming out. and now it's back to it's muddy crap again. so im about to give up on these old randall heads and check out the new ones. i might even list them on ebay when i pay my fee's.
do randall's get more distorted when turned up.
as with my other bitch fit thread. i just remembered i read somewhere that the RG's sound like a marshall and i remember one time i tried a marshall JCM 800 or whatever you call it. and the dealer dude said that those amps get more distorted when turned up. and my randall's do that off and on again i think. just wanting to know if this could be the case. goddamnit.
can i spray contact cleaner into the inputs of my Furman PQ?
i figured since im cleaning my amps. i was curious if i could spray cleaner into my inputs on my PQ3 and my MXR and my flanger/doubler without hurting anything? figured they need to be cleaned too.
Damn man ... cant believer its been almost 2 1/2 years since your passing. I remember seeing you on mtv just going at it and and the Dime Clinic. Your my most admired person on this planet and I feel more of a guitarist for knowing of you and you will always remain in my pick hand!!! R.I.P. Dimebag Darrell Abbott!!! WE will always miss you man Rock On!!!!!

some more CFH vid
on Mon Apr 09, 2007 3:23 am
Here i am hurting my ears with my playing...
i doubled the guitars in the backing track so you can hear 2 more guitars there.
so will adding more heads thicken up the tone?
2 rg's. dont have a splitter yet. so im only using one head at the time. and if lets say if i had 6 rg's would it thicken up the overall tone? like on official 101 live? info info
ok I'm aware that Dime always played several cents down....40 right?
anyways...... Becoming and Thoes of Rejection......I'm trying to find the exact tuning for that. I'm playing in a full step down 40 cents down and they still kinda sound off....especially throes.....perheps I don't have an acurate tab.....but it's the only one on Ultimate guitar and it claims it's from a book......
so with that said.....anyone know?
how in the hell can you slave heads into each other?
wouldn't you need a splitter? and how in the %$#@! can you do this? im frippin retarded and dont get it.
"This love" solo on my new CFH
dime's official 101 live tone.
so i've heard the he used RG100HT's but compared to the trendkill tone it's much thicker and i little more scooped sounding. its probably my favorite tone. so does anybody know if the thickness could come from him using more than 1 head or what? anybody know anything about that tone?
dime tone and using emg81
so who's tried an emg81 with dimes gear? does it still have a pantera tone or what?
metal out brothas
just about sick of my amp, advice please?
ok, ive just about had it with my warhead, if the mxr 6 band im buying soon doesnt sort it out im getting rid. I know a lot of people have tried to help me out with settings and im very greatful, but im afraid nothing seems to be working, it always sounds tackly, harsh, and muddy not matter what settings I use. so if I do have to get a new amp, im thinking im gonna try something tube. I would love a peavey 5150, but those beasts are way out of my price range. ive found that a valveking 112 however is easily affordable, but how good are they? does anyone here have one? would they be good for stuff like in flames, pantera, metallica, trivium, etc? do they sound good at low volumes because i play in my bedroom and wont be able to have it too loud

anyone else prefer having there lawrences fliped?
i just found out I do. I always thought that it didnt make a difference, but ive been playing with it flipped for a few months, and earlier I decided to put it the 'correct' way round, and it sounded completly different. it seemed a lot brighter, and I found the high strings didnt sound as good. I definatly prefer them flipped. anyone else the same?

for those who havent seen the footage....
...the neck pickups on the Dime guitars. They sound good but I believe they are no '79 series pickups. Anybody know something about it? The neck position on my FBD and CFH have different pole pieces so I know they are in fact different.
Check out this guys PanterA videos.
I would really like to know how this guy kept sneaking a video camera in to these places. Ive been at the Warfield before and its nothing short of a cavity search there. SOme awesome videos this guy has from the FBD days at the Warfield. This is by far IMO thier best live sound. Century 200's all the way. Hes got a great live vid of Domination too.

Does the bill lawrence casing fit in an ml79 ok?
do they fit ok? with my ml x they dont fit properly, the screw holes dont line up and the casing is a bit smaller than the stock casing for the dean pups. is this the case with 79s?
Does the standard boss adaptor pin fit in the mxr products or are they different?

Dime's Shure wireless box
So I was thinking about getting the same Shure wireless system that Dime had but I noticed the price was a bit out of my range right now. Anyone know of other good quality wireless units that don't color tone?
ok i really thought about if i should post this or not but man. everything in me that has a soul says i gotta.
so im lookin at stuff online today and im bored. one link leads to another and i find myself and dimebag hardware's website. which is run by naturallywired. i also go over to dimebag hardware's myspace to find a message from "chad" saying a new person was going to be running the myspace for dime and hed be doing the website only.
"chad" refers to chad dyer. the guy that ripped off zakk wylde fans for several hundred thousand dollars with the whole 357 choppers scam.
why is rita and vinnie ok with this guy?
also seems that his "company" is doing web work for several members of BLS. after watching the interview w/ zakk and how he got "ripped off by chad" and the lawsuit he filed against chad, i gotta ask. was it all bull?
i realize this opens up a ton of worms and drama, but i cant believe nobody has said anything about this before now.
dime would NOT be cool w/ a scumbag like chad working on his site.
i know this may have been asked before and i also know people will probly call me a dimesheep but i couldnt find this using the search button so i figured id accually ask.
I know dime studied guitar playing from Rhoads and EVH ect. but does anyone know whos music he worked on besides those two?
furman pq4 or pq3 ??? anyone??
on Tue Apr 17, 2007 12:09 am
Well im looking for one., i know there´s the trading post but we all know that here´s where we talk about all this things..
So if anyone would ship one to Argentina ill be very happy..
is there a patchbay for guitars amps that can run multiple guitar amps? may be a stupid guitar but i thought i would give it a shot?
Anyone Record with Audacity?
Audacity is an ok free mutiltrack recording program i'v used it for a few years because im cheap and dont wanna spen money on a Quality tracker.Anyways heres some cool VST pluggins that actually work! They dont visually look good but they work ie you can tweek every perameter!
Scroll down to find them! Also has great link to lots of other Free VST pluggins that would probably work with KrystalAudio!
how do you play these bits? (pantera)
just a few things ive been wondering how to play, all the tabs ive got dont seem to be right.
what I want to know is what is the correct way to play:
1. the squeeling intro to new level
2. the art of shredding intro
I got me a pq6 on the way to go with my rg80es and my mxr 6 band. Anyone used 1? Is it exactly the same as having 2 pq3's?
I ultimatly want a pq4 but I got this to tide me over. I've owned the randall since like 98 and I never used it's distortion because it's so muddy. Can't wait to hear the tone from hell!!
I am gonna clean the contacts and board as well.
Any 1 have proper settings for the pq3 that work with the rg100ht settings on the dime pic and the frown mxr?
Anyone know to to play these?
Ive been well struggling with 2 bits in dime's songs - the main squeally riff from avoid the light, and the breakdown at like 2:00 in primal concrete sledge.
i kinda tabbed out primal concrete sledge, but from the vids he looks like hes playing around fret 3 - 7 on the g string...i was playing around fret 6 -8 on the A...anyone know the true position?
As for avoid the light...well, im using the young guitar tab for it, but as i cant read japanese, i cant understand the notes about the whammy. I played around for a day trying to get the squeals timed right, but im not sure if the tab is correct now in the first place. Its bloody hard anyway...frustrating as the solo is quite easy!!
Any suggestions well appreciated, id love to play these songs live...
what kind of paint did they use back in the early 80's, like the paint that the DFH was painted with? J/W
also, i remember someone making the DFH and the FBD and i cant find it with the search function so if anyone has a link then it would be greatly appreciated!
in the walk video dime has on a white zombie shirt. does anyone know where i can get one like it.
Goddam electric Kerry king Harmonics/squeels
on Thu Apr 19, 2007 10:30 pm
Anyone pull them off correctly? Pretty sure they're done w/ a kahler on a 24 fret geet... What he's doing sounds so sweet... Maybe Fretting a note then tapping on another followed by a quick kahler harmonic? It could probably be replicated on a floyd.. Anyways if you don't know what I'm talking about just listen to the outro on Gaddam Electric

I bought the album today. And it's weird but it seems Hellbound is cut a little short at the end and it goes straight to GOLDARN' Electric. Sorry I just noticed that and wanted to know if it was normal.
I have an option of buying either a pq3 greenface or a pq4, which one is better? I dont know much about either so dunno which to go for, I did think pq3 but ive been reading past threads and some people have been saying the pq4 is better, so please can someone help me out

14 days before Dime was killed, Old post.
on Wed Apr 25, 2007 7:15 am
I just found this old post that I wrote 14 days before Dime was murdered. Brought back some good memories. I later gave the autographed "Dean is King" photo to Dean in a frame. Tears came to his eyes and he said it was one of the nicest things anybody has given him. It was priceless to me but I knew it would mean the world to him.

Question re: MXR Flanger Doubler Blue-Face VS. Black Face
on Fri Apr 27, 2007 9:17 pm
HEy not sure if this has been answered. I did a search but was unable to find anything so hear goes...
Does anyone know what the difference is between the MXR Flanger/Doubler Model #126 Blue Face VS. Black Face?
Is it only cosmetic? I have seen both on eBay and it seems the Blue Face is a bit more popular but they look pretty damn identical to me.
Any thoughts or answers here?

Anything close would be great to know ie: Dual Rect or Triple, PQ3 or 4 etc...
here is a very short clip of my buddy sound checking my rig for me when we were dickin arround drinking the doubler is on i just spit the cab for stero.I took this with my cell phone but u can get the idea for about 2 seconds lol
on Sun Apr 29, 2007 2:34 am
I am gettin ready to buy a MXR Flanger/Doubler and like most it will not include a footswitch. Does anyone know what I can rig up or use to control this puppy? I'd like to at least be able to bypass it with a foot controller.
let me know!
Thanks as always!
I may be the 1st 1 to do this
I took my pq-6 today, and after my blue mxr 6 band, placed one side into the front of the amp, and then into the noise gate, into my rg80es, then the other side of the pq-6 into the fx loop, into another noise gate. I bypassed the eq up front, and only use the preamp, and all the eqing is in the loop. I ended up with a solid crunch from the randall, very much like cowboys from hell meets master of puppets. Anyways, in front of the amp, I can hardly tell any difference in adjusting the frequency's, but in the loop, You can dial in like 15 million different tones.
So all i'm saying is try the pq in the loop, cutting the mids like 6 db with a 1-2 db boost on the low and high.
...just wondering.....four, or three?
If I pick up the 3 Vulgar Vids, will I need to get the 4th, if there is one?
Too lazy to google.
I hear the DVD compilation isn't so great as you can't skip through the chapters on each vid...just ff scan. That kinda sucks.
How well do furmans go with warheads?
Do they work well with them? I noticed skullsplitter is selling his pq3 because it didnt work well with his, can anyone else with experience tell me how well the pq3 or 4 works with warheads?
back of headstock...
figured this pic would be appropriate in this section... i'll put the rest in general guitar cus its not a dean.
here is the rest...
So, you use your pq-3 blackface in front of your rg100-es eh? What are all the settings and order?

just recieved my blue 6 band...
..and wow! it makes so much of a difference! the dime chunk is there, the gain is there and it sounds tonnes better than what it did! but I was wondering how I should have it set up? here is how I got it atm:
Guitar ---> Boss MT2 ---> MXR ---> hush ---> Amp
I have the mxr eqs all boosted to top apart from first 2 which are half way between top and 0. my amps eq is in the V shape and im getting an amazing cowboys kinda tone. but the tone is slightly too thin, needs to be a bit thicker, can anyone suggest what I can do to achieve this?
can anyone help me with my tone?
hey, to anyone that plays guitar well or is familar with the tech side, can anyone help me with the sound id like to achieve?
im buying myself a randall rh150 g3 head through a randall cab, cant remember the model name right now, its meant for the head though.
id like a real tight, clear distortion channel, but still heavy, without fuzz though, good aid for my pinch harmonics, and will sound fit with my wah (morley vai bad horsie 2)
anyone got any recommendations/hints as to what EQ i could use? [reverb included
