MXR Dime Distortion

Ground Effect

In addition to the wah pedals, which were conceived precisely according to ideas of Pantera's Dimebag Darrel, there is now a distortion pedal too.

Sharp distortion with high tone definition - no eye will remain dry. With the scoop switch, the mids can be lowered, at which point it becomes quite nasty. Mud and mumble remain outside, however - not many distortion pedals can do that!

  • For electric guitar
  • This distortion pedal was designed according to the desires of Pantera's Dimebag Darrel
  • Razor-sharp, aggressive distortion with high tone definition
  • Foot switch for bypass with status LED
  • Scoop switch (mid reduction)
  • Controls for gain and output
  • 3-Band EQ
  • 18 V power adapter included

Not bad pedal.
17.06.2016
It is a good pedal. With the scoop mid switch it can get on Dime sound direction but not very close, but can still satisfy the fans, I would also recommend to use a sustain pedal with it, or an overdrive (I use MXR ZW44). Otherwise the guitar will sound a bit "dead".

This pedal works for me mostly because I am Pantera fan, as for someone who is just searching for good and basic distortion pedal I would advise to look further, as this one is not very versatile and targets the specific audience, plus it requires some additional sustain pedal to make it sound good.

The build quality is good, no downsides. The only disappointing thing is that the knobs are not glowing in dark, which can be a problem for some people. Other than that it a heavy, compact metal box.

Sehr eigener Klang
Marc L., 28.10.2009
5 Regler: Lautstärke, Bass, Mid, Treble, Distortion.

Verarbeitung wirkt sehr solide, der Fußschalter ist sehr leichtgängig und dabei leise.

Verzerrung: erinnert vom Klang her tatsächlich ein wenig an Pantera, aber irgendwie fehlt es an Biss. Voll aufgedrehter Distortion-Regler liefert allerdings viel zu wenig Verzerrung, da hätte Dimebag vielleicht zwei von den Dingern zusammenschalten müssen. ;) Zum Vergleich: Metal Muff und MT-2 erreichen schon bei halb aufgedrehtem Regler mehr. Dafür produziert der Dime Distortion sehr wenig Grundrauschen.

Zusätzlicher "Scoop"-Schalter: Der "Dime-Button". Senkt die Mitten ab und gleicht gleichzeitig den Lautstärkenverlust aus. Soll angeblich das Ganze noch mehr nach Dimebag klingen lassen. Die dadurch bewirkte Klangveränderung gefiel mir allerdings überhaupt nicht.

Der Klang (auch ohne Scoop) ist schon recht speziell. Sehr klar definiert, keinerlei Matsch, genau wie die Werbung verspricht, aber auch mit dem EQ für meinen Geschmack nicht vielseitig genug. Mag durchaus seine Anwendungen haben, aber ich war auf der Suche nach etwas anderem.

Auf Youtube gibt es übrigens ein Vorführungs-Video vom Hersteller MXR/Dunlop.

Avis mitigié pour la pédale Dimebag
eric77, 22.06.2011
J'ai pris cette pédale MXR dimebag car je suis un fan du son de Dime.

Rien ne vaux la tête Randall !!! ou krank
je m'explique
Il ne faut pas se leurer, vous n'aurez pas le gros son des cds cowboy from Hell et compagnie.

Fabrication très robuste. Interrupteur un peu leger et fragile.
Le point positif est que l'alimentation est incluse, il vaux mieux car c'est une alimentation 18 volts et normalement c'est des pédales 9V.

Le design il faut aimer....
Un bouton est disponible pour avoir un senblanc de son comme Dimebag mais pour moi cela sonne encore plus artificiel que le son normal...

A essayer sur votre config

tous les gouts sont dans la nature, mais pour moi ca ne l'a pas fait !

Het pedaal wat je nodig hebt als je de Dimebag Darrel sound moet hebben. Eenvoudige EQ voor een pittige overdrive sound. Zit een klein knopje op, de 'dimescoop', deze bypassed de EQ en geeft je direct het kenmerkende Pantera geluid. Let erop dat dit pedaal met 18v gevoed wordt, je zult dus een apart kanaal op je geïsoleerde voeding moeten hebben of de originele adapter moeten gebruiken, er kunnen geen batterijen in.
