    I think he's just a massive fan of Keith Keoughs drums, when KK left Premier, Nicko moved on to Sonor, and when BDC launched, and later the Percussion side of the business KEO, who do a Nicko McBrain signature 'Boomer' practice pad, I knew it was only a matter of time. I know a few of the BDC artists and reps who were at the event today and though it's likely a shock for many, I can't say I was hugely surprised, and knowing Nicko, he'll have left Sonor for all the right reasons and he'll no doubt keep a good relationship with Sonor, for all they had supported him from early on.

    Well, can't say I didn't see it coming (for the same reasons RushDrums24 put across about Keough). Nicko's Drum One shop in Manchester pushes BDC a lot, and have a great relationship with Keith, and Al Murray, so it was only a matter of time really.

    Yep I see this being a long standing partnership now, especially after the success of the Boomer practice pad, i'd say expect a signature snare (likely a replica of the old Premier Nicko Sicko model) in the near future, NAMM perhaps?

    I like them, the 'Palladium' design is a nice throwback to the kits of the 40's/50's, they look really sleek and complimentary IMO. But then again I like DW's lugs, where some despise them.

    I like the Palladium lugs. My BDC snare has them; they look and function beautifully. I was so impressed with this drum, I special-ordered another one that (apparently) is only available in Europe. It may not arrive until the new year.

    that is one ugly drum kit.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

    Nicko, though a seemingly lovely person and a drumming legend, is not known for his subtly tasteful style.
