 Tommy Lee “Rock Star Supernova” chooses RCI Red Starlite Kit.

Rock Star Supernova drummer “Tommy Lee” and famous drummer for Motley Crue chooses RCI Super Duty Red Starlite shells fitted with DW hardware. The call came in Mid July to the RCI offices in Bridgeport, CT. from Tommy’s drum tech Stevo. He explained to us that he needed a special large kit for Tommy for the Rock Star Supernova show on CBS.  Acrylic Artist Romano Cotone returned the call to find out that the kit has some serious deadlines and some fabrication issues. Originally they spoke about the kit having the 40” RCI Red Starlite Bass drum but due to the lack of stock on the 40” wood hoops and heads they were on back order for 6 weeks. Tommy opted for the next choice a 32” Red Starlite Bass drum. The kit sizes for Tommy’s Supernova kit are as follows:
