I like for example how it sounds in the solo during Back Chat... but for the rest of the show I prefer the old rototoms.

What I don´t like at all, is the abuse of electronic drums in the Works Tour. Sounds like a bad imitation of Depeche Mode.

Indeed, I think there's nothing worse than AOBTD during The Works tour. The drums are really terrible.

Was he triggering the simmonds kit live then because I don't remember him playing it?

I also don't like the hammer to fall version, when he used the electronic pads for the beat at the beginning. On the magic tour and also now it sounds larger and more powerful with just playing it on the snare!!!
