    Thank you, I appreciate that. Yes, back in the day my younger years lol, a lot has happened since then some good and some bad. It is certainly a pleasure to see you here and many familiar vhlinkers especially during the darkest time for Van Halen fans, we unite here.

    "“We had a lot of fun on the tour – Dave was a blast. And next time we go out, we’re going to have some new stuff, too. I’m looking forward to getting on it. I’ve got tons of music written, such a variety of stuff… Actually, next week or the week after, Wolfie, Alex, and I are gonna start jamming. Maybe we’ll give Dave a call and see what he’s up to.” - Edward Van Halen ~ 2009

    That's a hell of a drum kit, hands down.

    Still I do prefer the Van Halen II Tour one (The World Vacation Tour) - He had a Ludwig Stainless Steel kit back then.

    Oh yeah, I love that website. The VHII kit is another classic. FW, WACF, VHII, DD, OU812, 2007-08, and 2015 are my favorite tour kits of Al's, with the FW painted Ludwig Vistalite kit being the very favorite.

    Kinda sucks no gong, though. That, and the black and white stripped frame bring it together.

    I got to see it at the Rock Hall, as well. They had a row of sets. I caught from a distance and said to my friend "Is that...it is!" Pretty cool.

    Question: Is this the actual kit that Alex finished the tour with? Or an exact replica?

    Alex Van Halen’s white Ludwig drum kit could be yours for a mere $275,000.

    The stage-played drum kit, which the drummer used throughout the Californian quartet’s Invasion tour in support of their third album, 1980’s Women And Children First, is available for purchase from Reverb.com for $275,000 (or £217,249.99 plus shipping for a UK purchaser). An unspecified portion of proceeds will go to charity.

    The kit which was used on more than 100 shows during Van Halen’s Invasion tour, was previously displayed at Cleveland, Ohio's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum. The custom-designed kit features two custom articulated bass drums, each more than five feet long, in addition to an array of floor toms, tom-toms, a gong and a host of cymbals.


    It mentions the gong (POP spoke about it previously), though the picture does not show it.

    Good news is if you can't afford the real deal you can buy an Alex VH Lego drum set instead.
