Jim Dunlop MXR Dime Distortion Pedal— The DD-11 delivers a heavy, aggressive, razor-sharp tone but remains tight and focused enough to keep up with lightening-fast rhythm lines and face-melting solos.
When Dimebag Darrell of Pantera first exploded on the scene, he ushered in a new era of tone and attitude. When it comes to guitar, Dime doesn?t need a "warm" or "pretty" sound. He can't be bothered with "vintage" this or "boutique" that. He wants a heavy, aggressive, razor-sharp tone that can slice through a loud band and a louder crowd. It's a tone that rages with distortion but remains tight and focused enough to keep up with lightening-fast rhythm lines and face-melting solos.
Finally there's a pedal that can deliver all that: the The Dime Distortion from MXR. With its 3-band EQ, proprietary Scoop switch, and ungodly output, this stomp box from Hell has the guts and the muscle to stand up to your heaviest displays of power. Crank the gain, boost the lows and highs, and hit the Scoop switch for a rhythm tone that will annihilate. Dial the mids back in and mow down the competition with a lead sound that can penetrate steel. If it still hasn't gotten heavy enough for you, stick the Dime in front of a distorted amp and experience sustain and sonic mayhem that's so over the top it should come with a warning label. The Dime Distortion - not subtle, not pretty.
Power: Two 9-volt batteries (some early models may not have this feature), or Dunlop ECB-004 18-volt AC Adapter
