    Default Looking for drum pictures

    Hi,
    I am hoping someone here may have pictures of the drum set Alex used during the (I think) Fair Warning tour that has the black and white stripes.
    My son is getting a new Ludwig set and we would love to add this type of striping to it.
    About 20 years ago I had a friend who had a contact at Ludwig whe had worked with Alex to stripe his kit and he walked him through the entire process of striping a kit but I have lost contact with him.
    If you have any pics you could send or post it would be very much appreciated!!
    thank you

    Thank you very much for the link. It looks like most of the pics of the striped set have been removed for some reason. If anyone can post some of these it would be very much appreciated.

    thanks

    If you want to get a kit in this fashion, look on ebay.
    Although these arent the same thing, Ludwig made drums in the mid seventies called vistalites. They came in clear colors as well as patterns like Alex's kit. They made Black and White one exactly like this but with thinner stripes. Vistalites were plastic/acrylic drums...
    If cleanliness were next to Godliness, then that would make you the devil...(CLUTCH)...

    Thanks for the info. We have already purchased the kit with more drums coming. I am just hoping that my son really gets into playing the drums and sticks with it.

    Also, thanks for those that attached pics..it is really appreciated.
