Im sure I read somewhere that when Dimebag was recording the tracks for Cowboys from Hell the producer asked him to lay some tracks down with a heavy flanger effect on. Obviously it sounded like a bag of **** but when it was mixed with the other tracks it sounded amazing. SO to get close to the sound of cowboys from hell isnt impossible but it is very hard.

I've heard some good things about the dime-distortion however so I'd look into it.

There's a boss dime pedal out there. Not sure of the model name. But my buddy has one and it gets real close to it.

That pedal sounds like ass, but it'll probably work for trying to get Dime's tone... not that he had all that great of a tone to begin with.

Im only going on what people have said. I've read it takes quite a bit of tweaking to get some good sounds out of it but it is possible.

Yea, dimebags tone wasn't amazing but it was deffinetaly unique and gave Pantera an awesome sound overall IMO.

That's true, his tone suited what he was doing just fine.

Dimes tone was awesome i love how heavy that **** is, its what made pantera so brutal, but great. he has completely shaped my style of playing.

get a Metal Muff. I get good Pantera out of it.


This is probably one of a VERY few times I'll actually recommend the Metal Muff, but it should be able to pull off that harsh, buzzsaw Dimebag tone pretty well. I'd still be weary though since the Metal Muff isn't reliable.
