hi ug
i just want something with uber gain, dime was know for his crushing tone and gain, i wont an amp that can pull of the breakdown to live 91 version of domination with ease. something what can dodle amazingly heavy songs, not really botherd about the clean's, willing to buy second hand, but prefer new, budget around $800-900 but maybe i could stretch to 1000 p.s i live in the uk

any ideas??

you dont need gobs and gobs of gain for a nice heavy sound. Contrary to what you may think, alot of heavy tones have alot less gain than some realise.

You generally want to use the least amount of gain you can get away with.

for 1k in the UK the most gain that u'll get is gonna be a Peavey 6505+. it sounds like you dont need cleans much so thats ur best option probs, unless you find a used Mesa Mk4 for that price (which is very unlikely)

Dime used older Solid State Randalls. They were great amps. Track down one of those, you should get one for a LOT less than $800. You'll be paying a lot more to get a Tube based amp that can do that kind of br00tal.

If you're looking for that older Pantera sound this will do it.

Half of this, yes dime used solid state, but you can get that kinda gain really cheap now.

Have a look for a Secondhand JCM800 with an overdrive or a JCM2000 DSL100.

SS Randall amps are pretty cheap

Used ENGL Fireball. Uber heavy, great amps, and not that badly priced.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

Also an EQ. Boost the mids on the EQ, then turn them down on the amp. That'll get you his tone. I would recommend not scooping it as much as he did though, will sound ballsier, more like his live tones maybe.

if you want dimes sound you want randall. there is sooo many good randalls out there for dirt cheap and they have such goood tone
