CONCERT STICKS

Black Sabbath
1985-1986

Used during touring in support of the "Seventh Star" album.

Paul Stanley (KISS)
1989

In 1989, KISS frontman Paul Stanley embarked on a short solo tour. Eric also used this stick design on other notable projects such as Gary Moore and Drive. I am not sure if he used this version, or a band logo'd version of this stick for his one tour with Badlands.

These sticks were first made using plain black ink (not shown)

KISS
1992-94

According to Eric, Zildjian would periodically change the colors to give Eric some variety. Therefore, the following colors were only made in very small quantities: burnt orange and fuchsia (not shown)

KISS
1995

The "Artist Series" sticks are the same model Eric was using previously and closely copied the logo designs of his original sticks. They have a shorter KISS logo and the words "Artist Series" above the slightly smaller Zildjian logo and "Selected Hickory" below. Eric used the same "Artist Series" as sold in the stores (and still does today).

ALICE COOPER / KISS
1997 - 2008

Eric also used this stick design on many notable other projects such as Glamnation, Gilby Clark and Brian May. He also used these for the XIX Winter Olympics appearance with KISS on February 24, 2002 and on the Rock The Nation tour in 2004.

The metallic green sticks were primarily used in Japan and the metallic blue sticks were primarily used in Australia.

Eric used his traditional signature sticks during the KISS Rock The Nation tour, Alice Cooper Dirty Diamonds tour and various Eric Singer Project shows.

Due to a change in distribution at Zildjian, Eric's sticks now says "Select" Hickory instead of "Selected" Hickory below the Zildjian logo.
