Sick Drummer Magazine – 2011 NAMM Show – Neil Peart Time Machine DW Kit


Sick Drummer Magazine had the pleasure of seeing the Neil Peart custom DW Time Machine Drum Kit at NAMM 2011 in Anaheim, California. This kit was an absolute work of art and at first we thought it was only for presentation purposes, but it was the actual kit Neil will be touring with.
From the octagonal custom riser, the Louie Garcia tour finish paint & custom printed Sabian steampunk cymbals, custom artwork, copper plated piping, hardware and gadgets, this kit was amazing. Kudos to the drum tech(s) who set it up and will be doing each night on the upcoming tour!
