    Default Peter Criss 1977 Kit

    About a year ago I chatted online with a guy from another discussion forum, about Peter Criss' Pearl 1977 Love Gun tour kit. I don't remember his user name or the website where we met, I think 1 one of the Kiss websites. He met Chuck Elias at a Kiss expo several years ago I think in Detroit. Chuck was Peters drum tech in the 70's. Chuck provided the following information to him.
    Peter's kit was a wood and fiberglass mix in a dark Emerald Green finish, under stage light it looks black.

    14x22" Kick.
    10x14" Chrome Over Wood Snare.

    Left Side.
    16x16" Concert Floor tom
    5.5x6" Concert Tom
    5.5x8" Concert Tom
    6.5x10" Concert Tom
    8x12" Concert Tom

    Front.
    9x13" Concert Tom
    10x14" Concert Tom
    12x15" Concert Tom

    Right Side.
    14x16" Concert Tom
    16x18" Suspended Concert Tom (custom)
    18x20" Suspended Concert Tom (custom)
    18x18" Concert Floor Tom (custom)
    18x20" Concert Floor Tom (custom)

    Chuck didn't remember Peter's cymbal set up. Hope this helps any Kiss fans out there.
    The following photo was taken at a free concert in 1978 for the Kiss movie. You can see the green in Peter's kit.

    Criss wouldn't know what to do with anything more than one kick.

    Thanks for those specs. I grew up a major KISS fan. I was 6 years old in '79 when I saw Judas Priest open for them in West Virginia. It was my first concert.

    What I can't figure out is this... Are you blinded by your man-love for him, or are you just trolling for angry responses? Either way, give it a break please. It is beginning to get old.
    Give a man a beer, and he will drink for an hour. Teach a man to brew, and he will drink for a lifetime!

    Lars has been ripping it up on the drums lately in the MetallicaTV videos.
