Dimebag Darrell Washburn Guitars For Sale

Ok. Here’s the scoop. Dime used the doubler, not the flanger. He had at least 2 rigs running at any given time. One amp was dry, the other amp had the Flanger/Doubler, in the loop so it mixed together and was a bit thicker sounding. I know this first off because I know Grady’s college roommate. He knew everything about the way Dime’s rig was setup from hanging out with Grady backstage every show they played in NC. Crazy thing is, he didn’t even play guitar.LOL This is a quote from GW Jan.2010 to further back up what I was trying to help people out with, not be a know it all.
“Dimebag’s original rig consisted of a Randall RG-100 Head, Furman PQ-3 parametric Eq, MXR 6 band Graphic Eq, MXR 126 Flanger/Doubler, Dime used the two equalizers in a unique way, cutting the midrange frequency curve with the PQ-3, restoring the narrow band of midrange with the MXR 6 band EQ and using both to increase the gain going into the amp’s front end, just like a distortion pedal. Dime used the MXR 126 Flanger/Doubler to thicken his rhythm tones.” He also used an MXR Blue Box, but that’s for another day. To say that the MXR is not that important is like saying the Randall RG-100 wasn’t important. Like I said before, when you have it in the mix, you will know what’s been missing. If you’re gonna do it right, do it right. I know alot of guys including myself who don’t need anything but a good amp and their fret hand to get good Dime tone. Just trying to help that’s all. We can agree to disagree. If you REALLY want to know EVERYTHING, get on facebook and message Grady. I’m sure he would be more than happy to help anyone out on mastering Dime’s sound and he knew it better than anyone. In the end, all that’s important is PLAYING METAL EVERYDAY!!!!! Later.
