Derek Forbes, if hes not around then Bernard Edwards, but then again hes not around :( so Derek Forbes it is!
John Paul Jones would be nice too, but given the other drummer he played with for all those years, I would just suck! :D
To me LZ1 does not sound like Paistes, definitely not Giant Beats, maybe 602's. but sounds more like Zildjian A's .
The whole drum sound is different, still good though! Love the 22/13/16 setup, I made a hodgepodge set like that but used PST7s and it sounds much like the LZ1 sound.
Both coated Ambassadors and Emperors sound great on my CM's, tuned a bit tight is perfect. Not good results with pinstripes or evans coated. The vintage emps is a tad to muffled for me, but better for ludalloy snare.
An 18" deep bass drum can sound good, so can a 16" , 14"s are great too, depends on what you play and how its tuned.
I've never heard a Sabian or Meinl I liked.
Zildjian Ks are overrated, and that logo is ugly.
Dont like anything Gretch or DW puts out, Would rather get a PDP for the price.
I know its an old thread, but I just recently installed the Ludwig P40662 tone control on a LM402 from the early 2000's.
No issues screwing up the plating. I put blue gaffer tape in the surrounding areas, drilled from outside in 1-3/4" from top of bearing edge for top screw and used the metal...
