Since I've been following Simon's work for the last 30 years or so, I've never seen any other configurations than the one we know. I know he had an "hybrid" kit with ludwig bass drums and Staccato toms and that he played some Ludwig setups in the mid 70's, but I never found pictures of these kits. Simon also added a third floor tom to his kit last year or the year before, but except that it's always been pretty much the same. It's a good thing for those who want to have copycat drum setup of Simon, they don't have to change it and buy moore drums, ha ha
