Before that, he used straight stands. He had more swing in his playing then. I always liked those kits better too, but with them, why have 12 drums when you can have 18 or 20?
Slightly off topic, but I just watched the entire Destroyer tour show on YouTube. They kicked ass back then, and Peter's playing was much livelier than in later years.
