Is it just me or I think the Ludwig was the best sounding drum kit recorded by Neil, starting with Hold Your Fire. The Tama before and the Drum Workshop kits after (starting with Test For Echo) were just Ok to my ears. I am a toms fan and I love those deep resonant fills and the Lugwig toms sounded great in the studio, may be the production did play a big part in the recording.
What do you think drummers and drum fans?

Well, I agree and not with you. I do love the way the Ludwigs sound, but at the risk of being wishywashy, all the drums sound great. I personally like the Tama Moving Piccies sound, even though they sound alot muffled.

But my favorite sounding drums are the DW drums..............(T4E, VT)

Well....I don't think I can agree with you on the DW kit being just "OK". DW kits are very well put together, don't be surprised if you see one thats worth over $2000 just for a 5 piece. They do over price but they also make great sounding kits. I've heard many in my lifetime. I've been a drummer for over a year and a half now. I know it isn't long but its long enough to know DW aren't just "OK" drums.

I will agree with you on the Ludwig sounding the best though. Runner up has to be the DW though.

If you do think about it though, the drums don't have anything to do with the recording. Its what they do TO the drums themselves. Do you think Neil just buys his kits, sets them up and starts playing in the studio? God no, he uses mics, woofers, sound systems. Everything. You can take any kind of drum and put it in the studio and make them sound the exact same but it takes the system part to make them sound better.

Live, his DW sounded the best.

I'm not sure if you can catagorize as 'better' or 'worse'. Before 'T4E' he played completely different. ALL the drums sound great because it's NEIL PEART, but to ME, I'm gonna have to go with the DW. In my opinion thier the best made drum today and they sound they best!!....to me
