Re: Vinnie Colaiuta goes to PAISTE
Vinnie will always sound like Vinnie, but it can still be a different sound. I much preferred his Yamaha 9000 sound to anything I heard when he was with Gretsch, although the drum head choices will have a part to play amongst other things. Similarly, with the Sting video, albeit the sound quality is not amazing, I don't really like the cymbal tone as much as his Zildjians.
I remember hearing Weckl when he did the reunion album with Chick Corea Elektric Band. I thought his Sabian hi-hats sounded awful on that album. Much preferred the K/Zs he used for years.
