I found the U87 eq'd clip to be flatter and more monochromatic. The warmth register in the Lucas has considerably more gleam to it. And the transients are duller with the 87, even eq'd. The result is for me that the Lucas has considerably more 3-D effect than the eq'd 87.

So far, attempts to eq an 87 to sound like a Lucas have fallen short. Keep at it.

Or, alternatively, put it away and stop waving it around in everybody's face. Since you will never own a Lucas, making controllable side-by-side comparisons impossible, your dead horse is beaten, beaten, and beaten again.

My condolences to the horse. Now, give us all a break.
