    I have a Century 200II.

    Its the one Pantera used for Vulgar Display, and Far Beyond Driven. It pretty much sounds like it With less gian, and bass of course...

        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...

            It has an FX loop, yeah...

              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.

                  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 can vouch for that cab. It's great. How much are they asking?

                              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.
