Hey everyone,
I was wondering if anyone had any pics of MP's Images and Words KIT. He doesn' t have a pic of them on his website! If anyone has please post, I'm building a replica kit of his using DW Pacific DRUMS and my exisiting pAisTe cymbals!!!
Peace! :twisted:

TAMA Kit?! :shock: I

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am quite sure that Mike was using a Mapex kit during DT's "Images and Words" and "Awake" albums.
Anyone else here to verify? :?

He was using TAMA Imperialstars (I think) for the I&W album. He switched to Mapex for the Awake and Change Of Seasons albums. Then he switched back to TAMA. Hope this helps!

Images and Words was TAMA Imperialstar's. He baught those brand new when he was working as a pizza delivery boy and used them on the Images and Words TOUR in 1992! I guess we're running into a wall here with nice pictures of it eh?

I also has to be mentioned that the kit was triggered during the recording of Images & Words. Or at least some part of the kit(snare? toms?).
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)
