i think his tech is still alive, and isn't dime famous for this quote:

“Dude, I haven’t set up my rig in over ten years! Here, talk to my guitar tech, he knows better than I do!” – Dimebag Darrell

that was in reference to someone asking him about his gear preference.

i wonder how they even get the right to use his name to tell truth. there is so much 'dime' gear out there now, i just remember there being a sig guitar and sig wah when he was alive. now they have panties with his face on them.

How many of you are judging Dime's tone by 2012 standards? The tone he's (in)famous for is ~22 years old. I guarantee the majority of you weren't even alive in 1990.

Nearly everything else was a shitty black / death / thrash metal tone at that time. At least Dime's sound was interesting and in your face.

And thank you for making me feel so ****ing old!

Black album came out in 91 and has aaaaaaaaaamazing tone, your argument is void. Also, Appetite for Destruction, or anything maiden did... Need I go on? Not everyone had shit tone in the 80s.

he didn't use the warhead much as far as i have read. i grew up on pantera, and dime's tone comes with it. he used a Randall RG100ES (i had two but sold them) or a Randall Century 200. i own a mint Century 100 1x12" and it brings in dime tones.

the RG100es was Cowboys, Vulgar i think was Century200 and far beyond driven RG100ES and i can't remember reinventing the steel, but he only used the warheads for clean. i may be flipping them [edit not flipping my amp, me not remembering which amp was used for what], but i bought my century 100 for $40 and it kills for dime tone on a budget.

he doesn't have my favorite tone, but like Pantera and used to play al ot of pantera years ago.

now i am more of a Down fan than pantera.

yeah, they didn't even invent slack tuned guitars till '96, before then metallica was tuning up (or speeding up the tape on their recording masters, not sure)

don't feel bad, you're not that much older than me. remember listening to white zombie and sepultura and thinking 'how can it get heavier than this?'

I will never understand guitarists that just let techs deal with their gear. It's like... what? I don't even.

Want Pantera tone? Buy a shitty SS amp and attack the speaker with a slag pick.

Didn't mind his tone on Damageplan though. That's a Krank.

I remember reading an interview with Paul Gilbert a few years ago.

He met EVH one time, and played with his gear. His hotrodded amps, the original Frankenstein; the lot.

What Paul noticed was not the sounds of Eddie coming out of the set up, but himself. This is because Gilbert plays like Gilbert, and not EVH.

You play like you, not like Dime.

Your gear makes little difference when trying to emulate a sound. What, and HOW you play makes the biggest difference.

I understand where you're coming from, but a blanket statement like "gear doesn't matter to your sound" is just false. If Clapton played through Slipknot's guitars and their amps with their settings it ain't gonna sound like Clapton. If you want to emulate a TONE, you have to start with their gear. The nuances of tone can be subtle but to a trained ear they're massive.

If you're recording I found this article helpful...

http://www.hamptonplace.com/tonedep...ings/rec016.php

It definitely helps get that "fizz" sound into your recording, two eq pedals (one after the guitar boosting mids, one in the fx loop scooping mids) can also help.

Personally I love Dimebags tone however I understand why it's a very love/hate affair. There's no denying though he was a massive talent who is sorely missed
