You can now own a drum set that was owned and used by late KISS drummer Eric Carr.

You can now own a Ludwig 12-piece drum kit made for and owned by late KISS drummer Eric Carr. The set, for sale via Reverb, also comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Eric Carr estate.

In the Reverb listing, the seller of the Carr kit writes: “While I was playing in a KISS tribute band in 2005, my dream came true when I bought this kit from Paul Orofino, one of Eric’s closest friends and the one who recorded Eric’s audition demo tape for KISS. Paul told me Eric gifted him this drum set, Simmons pads and, I believe, his chrome Chikara set, and Eric had it sent freight right after his video shoot for ‘God Gave Rock ‘N’ Roll To You II’ song by KISS, from Los Angeles to Paul’s recording studio in Milbrook, NY. Paul said he recorded albums by BLUE ÖYSTER CULT and other popular bands with some of the drums from this set.”
