Ahh DiPasqua! Great drummer. When I saw him he used what i thought was a smaller flat ride (18” or maybe even 16”) and I thought a K ride. I was not close enough to really see them though.Danny Brubeck and Michael Di Pasqua....
I remember running into Danny Gotlieb on a tv show and he had a case full of Paiste cymbals of all kinds. I then listened to offramp by Pat Metheney and the cymbal sounds on that album are exquisite.As a player of and fan of Paiste's B8, I'm confident these cymbals are more versatile than many give them credit for. With the dry Big Beats in existence now, even more so!
If this thread turns into a thread about how 2002's don't for work jazz or how they do, that's fine, but I really want to know if there were any drummers from the late 60's to today that preferred the sound of B8. I'd like to see how it recorded.
I remember watching the KOOL Jaz Fest on tv back in the 90's and was floored when the drummer of a featured band was using a Paiste RUDE crash ride for his ride cymbal.
Sounded fantastic, but I couldn't believe this guy was using a Rude.
Now that I think about it, it might have been Brian Blade, because Joshua Redman was a featured player on the show.
His Moodswing album was fairly new at the time.
Love the Paiste and Z setup guides and had them both (still have the Zildjian), but there were drummers that in fact played both at the time or had recently switched brands.Those Paiste setup books are awesome. But I think they are full of "artistic license". Pretty much every drummer is in them, including ones that I seriously doubt actually used Paistes other than fooling around once or twice.
I asked Dave Mattacks how long he was with P..as he is in a Profiles book..and he said.....6 mths!Those Paiste setup books are awesome. But I think they are full of "artistic license". Pretty much every drummer is in them, including ones that I seriously doubt actually used Paistes other than fooling around once or twice.
As for jazz players, a great local player here named Jimmy Robinson used a 2002 flat for many years. That's the only 2002 that I would consider a worthy jazz cymbal.
Yes! He was playing these last time I saw him in Portland-- two 22s. It's not like it's a great sound, but it really didn't matter either. A little like using fiberglass drums, or Pinstripes-- it's a particular, kind of dated sound. He played them great. Him + John Gross playing a Strayhorn ballad is the heaviest thing in the world.Billy Mintz, one of my favorite drummers plays two 2002 rides and he sounds amazing with them.
Spot on - youtube just suggested me this video (scroll to 1.05):Ronnie Burrage used to do that, I don't know if Ronnie used 2002's or not, but he had the balls to. I don't think of him (or many of these named drummers) as "legends," but Ronnie sure could play his ass off.
