Glen Sobel’s Alice Cooper/Motley Crue/ Mapex Green Snakeskin Complete Set. Authenticated! Extras!

Part of the world renown Donn Bennett's Drum Vault collection. Talk about DREAM KITS!! Glen Sobel played this extraordinary Mapex-Sabian-Gibraltar-DW set with not one, but TWO rock and roll mega-legends, Alice Cooper and Motley Crue. The original Alice Cooper Group also used this set in a 2015 re-union performance with original members, Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Alice Cooper.

Glen Sobel landed his dream gig when he joined the Alice Cooper band in 2011 and has been touring the world with “AC” ever since. This is the set he used on their 2014-2015 world tour. This tour led to another dream gig, playing 5 shows as a member of Motley Crue, subbing for an injured Tommy Lee. See FaceBook posts from Tommy Lee and Alice Cooper describing these events below. 

I've added a video of the set in action live with Alice Cooper in the video below. I can only include one video in this post. Glen made a great video tour of the set, plus I have some great video of Glen playing the set with Motley Crue as well as video of the set when it was played on the 2015 reunion of the original Alice Cooper group with Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Alice Cooper.  Message me and I can send you links to everything.

Glen played this set in a few different configurations. With Alice Cooper he used a 3 rack tom set up with the 10″ tom to his left and 12″ and 13″ toms in front. With Motley Crue he played a scaled down version with just a single 13″rack tom. In the studio photos the set is shown with just the 10″ and 12″ toms. All 3 toms are included with the set.
