shask, i heard that pantera clip you did... sounds good! what kind of pedal and eq are you using??? the pic for you settings is distorted for some reason on my comp. i have a pq3 so the bass shouldnt be an issue. this head i assume has a preamp out right?? cant wait till this thing comes in.

Thats what I used for those clips, but that was when I first got it, and dial it in better now But I used a Boss SD-1 in front, and a Dano EQ in the loop...
Originally posted by raceu4her i read somewhere that without a foot pedal you cant switch to distortion?? is this true?? if so, what kind of foot pedal will work??? id hate to get the thing and not be able to use the distortion
The Century 200II just has a knob you pull out to switch channels. The treble knob.
It also takes a standard footswitch, AFAIK. But it is a 1/4" jack.
Its the RG100ES that has weird switching, and takes a weird footswitch...
you can still use either channel by turning down the volume of the other channel. i've gotten so used to turning down my volume to get to clean; that i prefer it that way. i have a footswitch for the rg es's, that i bought off ebaythat i'm selling.
more fun than a staple gun and a sack of hampsters

I've got a Century 200 II (as well as an RG-100ES). The Centuries are pretty rare. Iv'e had a few people on the Dean forum threatning to hunt me down for mine. I boost mine with a metal zone. I have not had good results with the PQ-3.
I have an RG100ES but I am growing tired of the harsh high end sound it has. I will never sell it though. I boost the front end with a PQ3 and I used to use an MXR 6 band also, but I find I don't need it anymore. The PQ3 is used as just a slight push for the preamp, but I use it mostly for eq'ing.
Also, I keep hearing that the Century 200, not the 200II is the one to get. Dime used the 200, not the 200II.
Old Randalls certainly kick ass, but I am ready for tubes.
