    I remember reading that Ludwig sends Alex the materials and he builds his own drum kits. Is this true? Does he still do this?

    I don't have any idea, how long has Alex been playing Ludwig drums? And where/how long ago did you read this?

    For the rigors that a rock and roll drum kit goes through, if he did build them himself, he must have been damn good at it.

    Sorry, don't have any info on this, though I'd be interested to know the answer.

    Well I've never heard that Al builds his own drums. Seems kind of a hard thing to do to me. I seriously doubt it Graag. But by all means man, if you ever come across this in print, put it on here. That's what this forum is for. Learning about Van Halen is a never ending job. Out.

    I have an old interview with DLR where he says that Alex does build his own drums. If I can ever find the interview I would post it here (its on a cassette) ..it was from like 83 or something..

    Anyway, Dave said it so it must be true...
    Ha - Ha !!

    I know Alex used to build some of his drums, but not ALL of them ALL of the time lol. You would need a factory to do it in. But he did build some of his drums to his specs. I know now, most of his drums are made right at the Ludwig factories, custom paint jobs Al and Stine (his girlfriend/or wife, not sure) that they design.
