Nicko does not need double bass drum pedals. Always been a formidable on the single pedal.
Nicko has always been a cool guy.. Nice kit after all he needs & deserves it.
Nicko is my brother in Christ! I've never been into Maiden mainly because I'm not a metal guy but as a drummer I enjoy watching him on YouTube especially these type of videos because he is always funny and very friendly, he also goes into great detail about his kit.
Detailed and extended drum waklthrough. Thank Nicko and Sonor!

I wonder if all Jebus nonsense made him forget the most awesome album cover ever, Powerslave?

So after all these years you still haven't figured out how to keep time in a song? Speed up, slow down, mess up the fills and fuck up the song, might be time to retire.

He's such a beast on the skins.

That snare drum has a lot of ring and decay for a wood snare. I like it :)

Greg Hall
Killer kit Nicko...the artwork kills man.
Greg Patterson
Impeccable tuning
It’s about The metal
Wow , well for a shell pack sq2 with 8,10,12,13 ,14,15,16 rack tom 18 floor tom and the 24 bass drum that’s without any hardware it costs around 9 thousand pounds !!, so ad another 20 grand for the cymbals and hardware ( it’s probably more than that )\nThat’s my dream drum kit that I will never own unless my numbers come up on the lottery . \nThose of you who can afford, or do have a nicko replica you are so fortunate and lucky, I hope you treasure the kit as I would,\nOh well back to my 8,10,12,13,14,16, 22 bd, and snare ( mapex meridian birch set ) with quite a few alphas and some old 2000 series paiste cymbals, that’s my nicko kit and I love it .

BEST DRUMMER EVER! Viva la Nickoooo!
Man Gear
Wow. What a gently kind gracious man!!!
Marc De Douvan
The idea of different Eddies heads on each shell for each album on which Nicko played, with stained glass imitation is genius. Bravo! this drumset is not normal vulgar regular standard rock drumset, it's classic gothic nicko style CATHEDRAL! \nIn metal world, Iron maiden was always the band with the best aesthetic taste, for sure: real CLASS (visually and musically).
Marc Sabourin
Smokin' drumkit
Mark Bryant
You sure thumbs down. Wtf. Shows you know absolutely nothing about drums. I am a cockney. I am a drummer. He's a legend in rock drumming.. The sounds are brilliant. I shake my head
Marvin I
If you are Niko, does it matter what you have in front of you as far as drums are concerned
Matthew Paluch

A born again christian in a band like Iron Maiden...amazing
Michael Stephen
Interesting that Nicko himself is part of the legacy of the beast, as he didn't play on any of those first three albums!
Michael Synodin
im so glad ill get to spend eternity in heaven with you!
Miki Maiden
*This sound is brutal! Anyone knows which mics does he use* ???
Mountain Prowler
Number of the beast came to my ears in high school. Words can not express my admiration for you. Thank you for inspiring me to get a drum kit. If I've had a bad day, sit behind my kit and just work my butt off, pretty soon all is right with world. If you have teaching vids, I would for sure buy them. Thanks again...
Nicko is a cool dude
Percussion Stage Right
You're a tough guy Nicko! And congrats on the born again Christian news! ⛪🇺🇸🇬🇧⛪
Percy Quintana
Nunca pense ver al Loco tocando la bateria...
Sounds even better than my Phonic Plus! Fantastic work by the crew in Bad Berleburg continue to outdo themselves- amazing!
The legendary Nicko! See you rock in 2019! UP THE IRONS!
Ramon Ochoa
Thank you for playing each of the Tom Tom’s! They sound fantastic by themselves and I’m sure you made many other drummers besides myself very happy.
Ace video mate! Cheers! 👏😎

SushiWarrior 666
i love the sound on that 10 inck and the flor tom beautiful sound beautiful kit and amaising drummer
Taylor Howe
I swear nicko is one of the only drummers left using power toms. Even Roger Taylor is using short stacked toms. Man they look so cool shame you don’t see them type of kits anymore.
Tom Hoppus
Beautiful drum set

Gorgeous drums with someone that can bring them to life is the ultimate picture, Thank you Nicko!!
I shudder to think how much that lot cost!
bigdaddy junior
Who punched this guy in the face??
Can someone explain to my dumb ass why he's using two different stick tips? Looks like he might be using his left hand stick reversed? And why?
chris settles
Nicko is the Beast!!
chris velie
for christ's sakes man i love you to death one of the nicest guys i ever met..but nikko my man..your so dam amazing and that drum set is absolutely amazing..but we cant see you mate..ever at any iron maiden show..all we see is the top of your head where behind that massive drum kit is one of the smartest and amazing story tellers you will ever meet.he has been so many places around the many adventures and amazing stories..honestly a glorious fellow if ever there was one.and as some would say..your band is only as good as your drummer..i digress
corey fisher
His drum tech is an absolute guru.
Since the 80's: BORING
Nico I respect you immensely, I play Sonor too and your kit sounds seriously good... but it is the ugliest kit I ever clapped eyes on. No offence intended.
Oh my... beautiful!!!
As Nicko is getting older, he’s looking more like Eddie!
frank leonard
Nicko seems like such a nice guy, he can clearly play a bit too!
So, you didn't watch the video before making a comment, he said he used G2, or you don't know G2 are 2 ply.\nIf two heads aren't tuned the same, the theory is since they vibrate at different frequencies the won't resonate, or as long.\nBut they still have a long decay, unless like i said, its only due to the G2's making it short, or they aren't that tight, and I've only used G1 which need muffling, and hydraulic that doesn't need muffling. And like I said, I'm waiting for the 8\
Tuning is incredible. Wish I could tune that well...impeccable. Beautiful kit, amazing drums, amazing drummer.
Nicko is a Drum's MASTER!! Respect!! Many drummers are great too, but i like him.. !!! The most important thing is that he is a very COOL and simple (and funny) man. And he still plays AMAZING.. Not like some other \
manuel hung
I'm not into metal, but Nicko is one of the greatest drummers of all time.
One of the nicest and most genuine rock musician you’ll ever come across...
The entire kit sounds amazing but that floor tom is the BOMB!
Nice pots!
Is anyone better than Nicko about talking about their kit?
tony montana
Now that's a badass drumkit...nice one Nicko!
trouble fuxk

If God is real, this guy is his favorite.
