Ferocious. Blistering. Soulful. Those are just three of many words one would use to describe the guitar tone of “Dimebag” Darrell Lance Abbott. Dime is considered one of the most influential guitarists of all-time and a legendary, genre-defining musician… again, most will 333% agree that Dime is and will always hold those distinct honors.
IK Multimedia utilized all of Dime’s personal guitar effects, amplifiers and cabinets that he used in the studio while recording Pantera’s groundbreaking album Cowboys From Hell which in-turn started the revolution of the “Power Groove” in metal.
Available in a convenient desktop app and plug-in for your DAW, now you can play and record using the same gear and settings Dime did.

from the album.
