    The killer Dean Dimebag D100 guitar amp head ensures that the the infamous and incomparable metal tone of Dimebag Darrell lives on.

    Dimebag Darrell's guitar tone is legendary. In fact, in 2004, Guitar Player magazine included the former Pantera guitarist on its list of the 50 greatest tones of all time.

    The Dean Dimebag D100 amp head boasts as much as 120W of unbridled guitar force for all of your head-banging pleasure. The two-channel D100 head is equipped with a 3-band EQ with a Presence control. Need a lift for those pinch-harmonic dive bombs? Just hit the Boost switch for a huge shot of pure gain. Also features reverb, dual FX loops, and a line out.

    Also included is an FS1 footswitch for hands-free amp control. Offered at a great price, you'll love your Dean Dimebag D100 from the moment you pull this head out of the box.

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      I own the Dime half stack and my first mission was to explore the versatility of this amp. I wasn't expecting much in that regard simply because I thought this would be a one trick poney, Dimebag's tone, which it does incredibly well. No surprise, it was designed by the same guy that designed Dime's Randall and it was tweaked by Dime's very own guitar tech. Sweet!

      Now I'm a fan of John Sykes, Mark Tremonti, Brad Paisley, Dickey Betts, John Frusciante, etc. So I love a lot of different types of tone. I popped on the clean channel, plugged in my Line 6 Pod HD500 and was blown away! This cheap half stack was giving me tones equivalent to boutique amps worth several grand. The cab itself is worth the price of the halfstack. The tone is second to none. I've played Mesa, Orange, Marshall, etc. extensivley and my setup is every bit as good.

      If you love Dime, this is a great amp. If you love versatility, hook up a multi effects unit to this amp and be prepared to be blown away.

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      I was very harsh on this amp in my first impression review....I do not feel good about that because some folks worked hard to make a product....I want to be a little more objective this time and share what I discovered...

      Reverb....I stand by my original opinion..the reverb is terrible...the Peavey bandit is only $375 and it has a much clearer and smoother reverb with smoother decay....

      I was using passive pickups on the 0dB input...the -6dB input was supposed to be for active pickups, but I noted on so eof my passive guitars the pickups drive the 0dB input to hard and lend a harshness to the overall tone.....I'm much happier with the tone using the -6dB input on many of my passive guitars

      I found that turning the presence all the way down I was able to find more pleasIng tones.overall I not very impressed with this amp, but it is growing on me and I will hang on to it.
      Good features
      Great quality thus far
      I'm upgrading no this significantly..see below

      ...Not Good....for young beginners only

      By Joe-tg0dq

      from socal

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      The tone of this amp is bass heavy...tried it on several different cabinets. Honestly it sounds like a first attempt at building a distortion pedal....it has a nasal frequency that cannot be dialed out and the distortion is a mess of "honky" dimensionless of noise....like an old big muff or something. the reverb is the worst reverb i have yet to hear on any amp in any price range...absolutely horrible. I'm very dissapointed and think that dimebag would never use this amp himself if he were still with us. My carvin sx300 solid state head and my new model peavey bandit can get dime like sounds and they sound much much much better......worst amp I have ever owned and it's going back. It's a sham to put Dime's name on this parochial effort at a distortion circuit. I really don't think Dime's tone is in this box, if that is all you want it for.
      The features are ok....boost function drops the output level which is simply unacceptable...a joke. Shoiuld not need footpedal for channel switches, but my old marshall Lead 100 mosfet is like that too (only it sounds much better). Reverb would be better left off it is so bad....
      I'm impressed with the build quality and the atttention to detail....that part is definitely nice! looks great, feels great out of the box....nice handle options....pots feel nice and the overall look is very impressive.
      kinda soon to tell, but since the tone is so bad, i dont see much value here

      Great tone but flawed design!

      By Just J.

      from RI

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      I like the tone and give thumbs up on the sound...Dime's guitar tech got together with someone to make the amp...That's a good start but that dosn't mean he knew everything about functionality in an amp...He dropped the ball with not including a manual channel switch on the head and an oupt speaker load on the back of the head...

      Guitar tecks are good at stringing guitars and cleaning the goo off the guitar after a show but it's obvious he lacked knowledge about crucial design features guitarist look for in an amp.

      The fact that they also went with an all plastic foot switch is crazy...Without it the amp can't switch channels so whey not make it out of metal...Just my ophion.
      I love the tone this solid state amp puts out, very punchy but it has some major flaws I'd like to point out.
      The first is you can only switch channels using the plastics foot switch, this was a flaw. If you loose or break the plastic foot switch your not going to be able to switch channels. They should have included a manual channel switch on the head...
      Another flaw in this amp was they didn't include a cab impendence switch on the back. It indicates speaker cab loads either 4-8 0hms, that's it? Major mess up if your like me and liked to know how much load is coming out of the amp before you plug in your cab and switch the load on the cab to match the output load.
      One other flaw I noticed was the so-called boost button? It's reminisent of the original model I think they were going for when they made this one. The original model had a push pull knob and both seem to decrease the volume rather than boost the volume when it scoops the mids.
      To soon to tell I just got it but for the price it seems worth it...
      Over all great value but a few design flaws that should have been addressed...

      The amp for gainiacs

      By Moses49

      from AR

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      After having to sell my jcm2000 dsl with a 1960 4x12 lead cab, i was in the market for something that would match the amount of gain and warmth of the marshall. After reading reviews and watching youtube clips, and being a dime fan, i pulled the trigger. I am glad i did, the 2nd channel is great, all the gain i could want. I'm running this channel with a mxr kfk 10 band, and of course a hush noise gate. The gain is at about 7.5, and pinch harmonics and chuggyness is great, along with a searing tone for solos. The first channel is clean, which i play about 3% of my time on, but with the built in reverb it sounds decent, but if your looking at this amp your like me. Another thing is if your playing emg's you'll want to use the -6db input as instructed in the manual. Bottom line is if you want imo the best ss amp out there, buy this!

      A new respect

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      Okay I've plugged into some high dollar amps, but so far this one is by far the best amp I've heard. I gave it a 4.5 on features because I like simple controls, also the dual effects loop is a very cool feature. I haven't gigged with this amp yet, but it seems built to last. also the clean channel is comparable to fender amps, even sounds prettier than my old fender combo. Beware though this amp does feedback a lot, but a simple noise gate will fix that. I would and have recomended this amp to anyone wanting an amp for metal.

      Raunchy!

      By Dillon-uiPQb

      from Phoenix, AZ

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      I bought one of these to replace my Randall RG100ES. Yup, that's right I own both, and I can tell you they're a lot alike! When I boost my Randall and put an EQ in the loop, it sounds just like this amp does right out of the box! So its pretty heavy, you can do some good metal. But I strongly suggest putting a boost infront of it and an EQ in the loop because you can get some disgusting amounts of tight gain from this baby. The reverb is kind of cheesy and my knobs keep falling off and the logo on the front is ugly, but the clean channel sounds just like This Love and the lead channels sounds just like Walk. /m/(>.<)/m/

      Only had it a few days now

      By Thisguyagain

      from Shreveport LA

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      It is what it is for those of you this is almost an exact copy of a Randall RG 100 that being said the head seems like it could take a beating the foot switch on the other hand is all plastic and those of you that like to stomp your pedals are going to run into problems. Thats the main reason I gave it 4.5 on features the channels are not switchable with out the foot switch and the boost isn't foot switchable? anyways I like it this thing is loud. The one thing this thing is not very articulate but it is very warm for solid state its not a tube amp but hey its good tone.I would give it a shot its cheap enough not a big deal I bought it as a replacement to my old 90s Randall RG75 that was crapping out this is a perfect replacement.

      Great Sound Great Price

      By SuperDave-cz_u_

      from Haslet, TX

      Comments about Dime Amplification Dimebag D100 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      I received the D100 amp head about a week ago and have to say it has really been a pleasant surprise.It has power, tone, versatility, a good overdrive, and a gain boost that provides some killer distortion. I have found myself practicing and playing for longer periods of time just because the amp sounds so good.
