Technology rules!
Neil's sound is ably assisted by a couple of TD-20 modules

When approaching the DW stand at NAMM 2011 we were blown away by this kit. The exact kit Neil Peart will be using on Rush's forthcoming Time Machine tour. The kit is replete with tour finish shells and cymbals and cool steampunk hardware. We couldn't resist taking a few snaps, and here they all are...
