70's Pearl Fiberglass Kit / Peter Criss

Loading...

I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can help out. I play in a KISS tribute band that recreates the KISS Alive! album word for word and note for note. All the gear is vintage and correct for the period. Except for my kit. I can't find the kit Peter Criss played on the Alive! tour. All concert toms in a pearlescent finish ranging from 8" - 16" with 2 - 18" floor toms and a 22" kick. Any assistance or leads of any kind would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Here is the best resource on the web.

Peter had two "Alive" sets the first pearlescent was used in a promo it was basically a five piece kit that they later added a full set (6"-15")of concert toms to.

The second kit was the same but with a custom disco ball wrap that was made of small mirrors on fabric.

Other KISS tribute bands have just bought a set of shells and the generic Pearl style "coffin lugs" and built a kit instead of hunting down original Pearl wood/fiberglass drums.

I like his original Ludwig kit the best 12/13/14/15 toms 16/18 floortoms 24 bass drum in silver sparkle.

Thanks clubdate64 for that link. I was a Peter Criss fan, and I appreciate getting caught up in the history of his sets. Cool stuff!
