Khowing the nature of DW, no doubt that the contract reads that he is not allowed to use a non DW drum in any comercial circumstance. My bet is that the sling is still his number 1.
The kit sold for over 35k... not bad.
This kit was part of a give a way contest in Modern Drummer. The accustic kit and simons kit were split up as seperate prizes.
I think Vapor Trails or one of the latest albums, he did a spread in Modern Drummer and detailed the snares he used on that album. Mostly a DW, Bamboo model, if I recall.
Anyway, this has been said here and elsewhere, but Neil's DW kits sound very ordinary, especially the snares. I doubt he has taken Ol' Number 1 out of mothballs in the last decade. Crazy as it seems, I'm sure a lot of us would know it if he did.
