    Question Alex`kit

    I know it´s custom build. But if you buy a coparably Ludwig kit, what would it cost ? All cymbals, gong and hardware included.

    Tons....lol. I saw Als kit in Greensboro NC backstage on first Dave reunion tour. One bass drum was totally fake and had a working fridge built into it.

    I'm certainly no drum expert, but I do know that REALLY good, profressional-grade kits are easily over $5k, and could probably come close to $10k in a hurry with all the bells and whistles.

    Alex' 2015 Ludwig kit? With all that metal/emblem/signature gear work involved? It wouldn't suprise me if it was north of $30k.

    Al's 2015 kit is definitely up there as one of my favorites of his monster custom Ludwig kits. Simply beautiful and sounded amazing!
