CLIPS: Bill & Becky 500xl VS. Bill Lawrence USA 500xl
on Mon Sep 03, 2007 1:21 am
Hi! Here's a quick comparison of a Bill & Becky 500 XL (in a Washburn dime 333) and a Bill Lawrence USA 500 XL ( in a Washburn Dime 2 ST). Same amp, same mic and same settings (mesa 2 channel triple recto).
im thinking about selling my randall XL cabs......
im thinking about switching to vader cabs. anyone had any experience with them. the whole reason i bought the randall cabs was for the whole dimebag clone thing. but im moving on now. so are they good. they are cheaper than what i paid for my randall cabs.
any one have Revolution is my name backing track?

BLUSA L500XL installation help
Can someone give me some advice on how a BLUSA L500XL pup is installed, ie where each wire needs to go? is it the same for all guitars? because I have one installed in my ML and i can see only the red and black wires are connected to the volume pot, the green and white wires arent connected to anything. The black wire is connected to the top of the pot and the red wire is connected to one of the prongs. There is a metal meshy wire which is also connected to the back of the pot. is this how they should be wired in all guitars or are some different? sorry i really dont know much about this sort of thing, i need to learn though, as my mum has told me she will no longer keep driving me round to get pickups installed

How do you convert the Randall Warheads to run on 240V?
Me playing revolution is my name
been messing around with my piece of crap webcam today, managed to get it working ok and attemped to record myself playing. recorded a long video of my playing loads of random riffs, took this small segment from it. basically its just the revolution is my name intro, first verse and chorus, with a few noobish harmonic squeals at the end for good measure! please let me know what you think guys, its not perfect and I wasnt going for a dime tone or anything, it was just a quick test jam to try out the webcams mic (the sound quality isnt very good as i didnt crank my amp up enough, plus the mic sucks, i'll try and do another vid later)
"Dimebag" Darrell Williams ???
on Tue Sep 11, 2007 6:01 pm
WTF?? Check out this Dream Theater - Cemetery Gates cover. At the end (7:34) they throw up this little Tribute screen and misspell Dimebag's name.
What's up with that? Who's the fool who edited that? Nice Friggin job...Dumbass....
RG 100 ES MODIFICATIONS??
on Wed Sep 12, 2007 2:44 am
I've read a few different places about this cbh mod, is this BSH?
i want to hot rod my rg 100 es while i have it taken apart for restoration.
any help would be greatly appreciated..
Here we go: my Randall RG100es and my doubts!
Hy! I'm new... this is my first post
...I hope I'm welcome here!
Let's go: In the past years I had a Peavey Bandit 65 and then I moved to Randall buying a 75w combo of the g3 series. The tone I got was pretty killer (using my zoom gfz4 first and then a digitech rp150), but i sold it months ago since i had the fortune to found a rg100es head (1987).
I play it through a Carvin Legacy 2x12 cabinet (v30 celestion equipped). I boost my head with a mxr m-108 equalizer (ten bands...the black one).
My tone is dime stile: i boost the boost the mids with the eq and from the head i pump gain (about 3 o'clock), basses, while i set mids and highs and presence about 11 o'clock...no reverb.
I like the tone...very impressive. I think it kicks asses...palm muting directly in your face!
But i have some doubts, so I'll try to go with some order explaining my situation:
1. Probably i'll buy a mxr m-109 blue face to boost the Randall head...so I'll hear the difference (i have read it gives you more gain). Moreover some bands are differents (there is 800hz for example and not the 1000Hz). What are you exepriences?
2. I play in a metal band (thrash-death). Since there are two guitars I need a boost for solo palying. So I think I'll put the blue face in front to boost and the black face in S/R to boost me up for solo...Opinions?
3. Randall XP-3 Block Booster? What's this? I read old posts but the situation's not clear for me. Does it boost your volume?

Don't think there are really any good tabs for this, and it was much more fun to work it out on me own.
Used my Yamaha Pacifica + Dimebucker cos I haven't set up my RB to D yet (bought the wrong gauge strings today...
Why don't use rg100es treble boost?
...i know using the boost volume drops down, but instead of suing head boosted with furman/pedals or something else is it possible to find out a crushing tone using head and nothing else?

hey I've got a dime video playing squeals and some other stuff, talk about damageplan you know, so I was wondering should I put the link here, and am I allowed to do that anyway?
Dean MLF 79 vs Dean FBD ML
on Sat Sep 15, 2007 7:18 pm
I'm new to this forum and to dean guitars.. Dont own one.. yet..
But now it's time get my wings
Since I miss my Washburn dime333 that I sold a couple years ago, I have to get a ML
I love the Brazilianburst and I was thinking.... What's the difference between the spec. on the FBD ML and the MLF 79
exept the obvious... the dimestickers, the dimebucker, dime traction knobs and the hardcase...
The FBD ML will cost me about 1500 US $
and the price for the MLF 79 upgraded with a dimebucker and a hardcase will be about 1200 US $
So which one is the better guitar?
I understand that it's more "tribute-like" to buy the FBD one.. but it's more hardcore to buy a MLF 79 and upgrade it (and cheaper!)
But if the FBD is better build I certainly will go for that one
Well cheers everyone!
a while ago someone on the forum posted some pictures of guitars they own, in 1 pic 5 dean mls then the next 5 washburns. i know one of the deans was broken mirror ml, can anyone find these pics for me?

Pantera 5 minutes alone clip... Randall Cyclone
Didnt spend too much time with these obviously as I left fuckups in there and I didnt double track or record the whole song yet. Just a TONE TEST to see if I am getting close to that "Far Beyond Driven" tone.
Two clips with backing tracks. First clip is with the gain 1/2 way up, second clip is with the gain 3/4 way up. Let me know what you guys think, or which clip sounds closer to the actual song's tone.

RG-80es vs Re-EQ'd Cyclone... 5 minutes alone CLIP...
Any better this time???
Anyway I took some of the mids out with the Cyclone's parametric rotorary mid control and added some more bass on the 9-band graphic eq as well, I think it turned out much better this time.
I also did a quick clip with my Randall RG-80es boosted of course with my tubescreamer just for shits and giggles. I didnt really mess with the eq much on the RG-80es to match the "FBD" tone I just used one of my standard heavy settings and for some reason it turned out a little bassier than it sounded in the room, oh well
Settings with the little carpeted RG-80es were....
Gain: 3:00 o'clock
treble: noon and pulled
Does the Cyclone clip sound better than the last couple of clips I posted with that thing, is it getting closer to the "FBD" tone yet? I just threw in a RG-80es clip of this for shits & giggles, how do you guys like that compared to the Cyclone clip???
Like it says, I found an old pic of Dime while going through some boxes after our move into the new house. I got it from a friend a couple years ago along with a Pantera guitar pick that he said is the same pick Dime was actually using in the picture I'm posting. The backstory on this one is (I think.) that this was from Ozzfest 1997 in Indianapolis. I guess Ozzy couldn't perform that night or something and all the other bands came up onstage and goofed around for a couple of hours. I think that's Dino Cazares from Fear Factory playing beside him. I'm not sure. It could be Vinnie Paul for all I know. I'll have to get with my buddy again and ask him for the full scoop on this one. Anyways, I thought you all would enjoy this shot. Take it easy.
Might be interesting for someone
It says it a century 170 but I can't tell. I've never seen one.
