are there any bands with drummers, or just drummers that use an unorthodox drum set? i.e.: Victor DeLorenzo from the Violent Femmes.

Are you refering to a drumset that is quite out of the ordinary? Like where they have odd cymbals mostly.. or their setup is totally weird looking?

The kits that bell out like a tuba are called North Drums. They aren't made anymore. I own a kit. Mine are black on the outside and white on the inside. Sometimes they come up for sale on Ebay.

To the person who called Bozzio what they called him, cut it out.

Mike Mangini had a set of almost all roto-toms years ago. I saw it on an old Steve Vai video. It was kind of odd looking.

these "North Drums", i didnt know thats what they are called, but i have a jam buddy who has a set, and they sound great. only drawback is that i found them rather hard 2 tune and get the sound im looking for out of, but once you get it, they sing beautifully. the only drummer i can think of iv'e seen use one would be Chad Channings or Dave Grohl. it was back in Nirvana's early days so more than likely it was Chad Channings.
