    Getting "revenge" huh Chris?

    KISS uses Gibson guitars and PEARL drums because they want the Best!

    If I am not mistaken that was the same finish Peter Criss used on one of the Kiss tours. it looks fantastic under lights. The DX Professional Series was the wrapped version of the DLX Professional series which was the lacquered finish. The inner and outer plies are Birch with filler plies in the inner shell I have a DLX series kit and they sound really nice.
    My wife says I am no longer permitted to buy any more drums...I said okay you cant buy any more shoes...we are presently at an impasse! I see drums...she sees shoes!

    Correct. Peter had a similar kit for the Alive tour, but his mirror tile was 5mm (Eric’s current farewell kits are 5mm tile as well). Neil Smith was the first to do it. His Billion Dollar Babies tour kit had 12.5mm(1/2”) mirrors. That’s what I’m cutting mine to. Munetaka Higuchi of loudness had two kits done in mirrorflex, similar material, with 1/2” tiles. Eric has told me this was the inspiration for him doing his Revenge tour kit in that finish. A few other drummers have done mirrorball kits as well. Tommy Lee had one on the Genteration Swine tour and Gil Moore with Triumph, Eric did a kit with cut glass for the 2012 KISS/Motley tour. I’ve always loved the mirrorball look, especially on drums. There’s something beautiful about it to me.

    It looks like an eGREgious PITA to apply. Doesn’t it also add a LOT of weight to the drums? Also, how is the hardware applied? Directly to the glass or is the shape of the lug cut out?
