Default Re: Vinnie Colaiuta goes to PAISTE

I didn't know about the Ludwig story!... tbh I have been really unimpressed with Vinnie's sound with Gretsch. He had such a great sound with Yamaha 9000 kits & Maple Customs, it was quite a radically different sound with Gretsch.

It's worth noting that the Gretsch sound from his recording kit that he used when he was actually still with Yamaha was fabulous - but very different from that of his "signature" set.

Not the best sound quality on the seven days vid but I'm not taken by the unmarked (Paiste?) cymbal sound either... Puzzling!
