Drummers have long lauded and attempted to duplicate certain distinct tones from records that span a variety of decades and genres. John Bonham’s powerful, booming tone with Led Zeppelin, Elvin Jones’ thunderous onrush with John Coltrane, and Stewart Copeland’s dry yet driving crack with the Police are among the slew of notable recorded drum sounds often referenced in the pages of MD and on countless online forums. So it’s no surprise that when we asked our readers and social media followers about their favorite recorded drumset tones, a slew of comments quickly piled up. Check out some of the responses.
