In this video, Chad's drum tech Chris Warren talks about his acrylic kit: "So this is Chad’s new touring “I’m With You” drum kit. A very custom kit from Pearl. As you can see it’s an acrylic see-through kit, which you’re not gonna find on any shelf in any drum shop anytime soon. This is a very custom drum set for Chad. He came up with the idea, he called up the folks at Pearl and said, “I’d like a clear drum set please!” And they were happy enough to oblige him. And they’ve really done an outstanding job, it’s one of the best sounding acrylic kits I’ve ever heard. AND the fact that the Chili Peppers logo is frosted into each drum in sort of a random pattern is just so cool. Chad loves it, and it sounds great." According to Pearl's Artist page, the kit consists of: 24x16 Bass Drum, 12x8 Tom, 14x14 Floor Tom, 16x16 Floor Tommore
