    To those of you who commented on differences on my and Nicko's kit: I never ment to copy it 100%, I just wanted to do something similar. The ride cymbal really isn't further away than Nicko's, it's just lifted a little in order to not cover the toms. The kit was really comfortable to play, except maybe the ride, but I could have gotten used to that over time. What I liked best, was the bigger toms on my right, they really made for some thunderous fills
    As far as the 8" goes; it's quite rare, I haven't seen any other 8" CZX toms out there yet, let alone a 8" virgin tom. The kit sounds phenomenal, and was so comfortable to play that I actually promised myself that I have to record the kit with this setup at one point or another

    I have my DX kit in Nicko Mcbrain style (But not 100 %! ) and i found out it was quite comfortable to play. I did it just for fun but i have ended up leaving it that way. I have 12" and 14" tom over a 24" bassdrum and it works just fine.
    Your Custom Z kit is just awesome I hope i can play one some day.

    Never noticed it were the 12,13. I find that ride position quite comfy easier to hit the bell aswell. My dream has always been to have a nicko replica setup. Am quite jealous
