    As a tribute to Nicko's collaborative effort in the creation of this unique cymbal, the label "Powerslave" and a rendition of IRON MAIDEN's mascot, Eddie, have been placed on the 22" version of the cymbal.

    Hell if you had a set like that we would never see you onstage. :p They forgot a Sootie.:lol:

    Every drum has an Eddie from an album except the smallest tom.

    :worship:rock: WOW! That is SO COOL, Linda!! I can't tell you how proud I am of you! As hard as you work on your drumming skills, I can't wait for the Linda McDonald signature cymbals!:worship:rock::kickass:
    That is also a BADASS drum set! Will it fit in your truck? I don't think Mark and Chris would mind helping you set up and break down a kit like that every gig!:lol:

    I remember reading that someone stole the snare on tour. It's pure white with the Maiden logo on it really big. What a*holes! It's wild how large his toms are yet he uses a 5.5" snare.

    One thing I noticed with Nicko's kit when you see it from behind him is the ride (not sure if I'm using the right name - not a drummer!) cymbal is huuuuuuuge and seems to cover half of two toms. How he doesn't accidently smack it all the time I don't know!! I know when I've tried playing drums I always smack the sides of the toms or get my sticks in a fankle!! Oops!
