They take a few modern conveniences, the clocks on Time are sampled but the congos are done live. 

Just to be pedantic: The real PF used two banks of Roto-Toms (with lighted drumsticks!), not congas, during the intro to "Time".

Do I need to contact Remo to see if I can get a set of RotoToms?  ;)

And these LED drumsticks change color every time you hit a drum. I want a pair of them just for myself (and I'm not a drummer). Too trippy? I'm not responsible if any of you start having flashbacks....  ;D

Just thinking.... I have an original Rhodes 73 piano that plays great. I think that's required for Time..

naw. I know a semi-retired "source" that won't miss them for a week or three.......
Knowing it's for Floyd doesn't hurt. May have to pay his way too.......

edit: Reading further, i see you have a source lined up.
The Don probably wouldn't let us in anyway.

I'm pretty sure that I have a set, I'm a bit far though...
