I seeOnly in the number of toms. Neil's kits have much smaller and shallower toms, placed at a much more sensible angle. Same goes for cymbals.
Not bashing Nicko at all, he's an amazing drummer, but that setup is insane on so many levels
OMG 3 rides? :O One wonders how can he reach all of them comfortably...hmmmYep. i`ve seen pictures of Nicko`s set from the 80`s (i think the Powerslave "era") where he had three !!! rides and literally a forest of various crashes!
I have a pretty big kit too, but i place my toms in a very different way. To each, his own...
