All the 80s hexagonal drum kits in the world

I'm endlessly grateful to Japanese illustrator Shigeru Nakamaura for creating the Hexagon Room, a tribute to the synth drums of the Eighties. Obviously Simmons get four rooms in the gallery, but I'm disappointed to see Dynacord (whose pads were crazy irregular quadrilaterals) only get one. Click here if you don't want to navigate Shigeru's rather elaborate front page.

haha, I have an old Tama analogue drum brain... now I definitely know why the kit didn't survive! Yikes... Hope they made some funky coffee tables out of it.
Look for a red Simmons kit in the animated video I made for Weird Al's CD/DVD thingy...along with a "Goom" synthema-sizer that turns into a squid. BRAP!
Wow, wish i'd made a hexagonal museum....Damn it used to be, long ago, that i was the only guy around that liked Simmons drums, but now...thanks to the internet....there's a museum!

BTW i need to sell my SDS1000M. I got a couple pads for it too. I'm just bored of it and need $ for a new computer.
...but there's no mention of my wonderful Essex-built Ultimate Percussion kit. (they probably never made it to Japan).
