    You mean Peter Criss? He played Pearl into the 90's and now plays DW.

    Well, Peter played Pearl back in the 70s and early 80s when he had an endorsement deal. He switched over to DW at some point, though, and has been with them ever since. I know he was playing DW in the early to mid 90s.
    His KISS 70s set had concert toms. I remember that much about it. No reso heads.

    Not sure of the 70's set up specs, but here is a pic and specs of his current kit. The finish is "Broken Glass" with black graphics.

    AL, is just showing everyone exactly how much more he knows than I do. It has to be because he is just much older.

    That can be the only explanation!! I guess will give him some rep now!

    Great pics!!
