Pantera Distortion

Hi all ^^, i was just wondering how to create a certain type of distortion. The kind that Pantera used in their song called "slaughter". I have an Ibanez RG 170 DX, a FAME T64rs amp and a Danelectro LM-1 "Black Paisley" distortion pedal.

If anyone has any hints on how to do this i would greatly aprreciate it ^^

First loose the Danoelectric pedal and pick up a DOD overdrive, add lots of tredle, a digitech whammy and you should be somewhere in the right neighbour hood

I recommend a Randall amp. For the majority of Pantera's music, that's what Dimebag used as his amplifier.

turn up the gain on a solid state amp, that will get you close to his tone, just crank the gain and mess around to get his tone

If cathbard asked for dime's tone, I'd fly over to Aus and have him committed.

Cathbard + Slide + Rio Grand pickups + Randall Amp + Kaoss Pad + Dimebag's Tone = broken Internet.


(Well, maybe kittens would have to be added...)

I do not play Pantera songs but I got MXR Dime distortion. Its a great distortion pedal with loads of gain. I find it great when using solid state amps. It also has a number of controls that allow you to get the required tone. Its disadvantage is that it required 18V supply. I manage to get a close tone to Pantera when I scoop the mids on the pedal and while using my ESP LTD EX351D loaded with passive EMG pickups. To further get the tone right I use MXR 10 band EQ which again is 18V. The EQ is placed in the effects loop. I cut the lowest and highest frequencies to get more midrange punch. and set the rest according to taste.

At first I also thought it was Cathbard, and on second thought I thought it was someone trying to troll him.
