One of my favourite drummers from one of my all time favourite bands; Van Halen. Alex’s sound was always that signature Ludwig Supraphonic “Boxy” snare. Always with the perfect “Crack” and tone and always on point.

Alex was not one to just keep-the-beat kind of percussionist, he brought more than just the beat. Utilizing pretty much every sized tom with the big Bonham bass drum sound Alex is a drummer’s drummer. With excellent fills and cymbal stick work he he added fuel to the Van Halen sound and to me could never be replaced.

You can own the newest AVH snare from Ludwig drums this summer 2017!!
