Nicko has a ton of Paistes and they all have the sickest looking Paiste logos ever, you know, the gothic font and all that... Are they custom or is it a special Paiste line?

I need some.

Custom made. They have PAISTE written in the Iron Maiden font. He also has a bunch of standard Paistes, such as Rudes.

Did you see the Live From Abbey Road set on the television the other day? They played Brighter Than A Thousand Suns and Hallowed Be Thy Name in the studio.

Nicko was playing his massive tank drum kit. Got plenty of of close-ups to check them out.

I didn't realise he played barefoot until I saw it.

Damn, stupid custom series. If Paiste made them as a standard line of rudes I would immediately switch from Sabian because everyone knows that looks matter much more than sound. :P

there is a list of his cymbal set-up go through this link and it tells you what he has, he only has a couple of custom cymbals its just the logos and paint jobs that are custom, the link tells you what are custom and what are discontinued (no longer made)
