Ludwig / Acrolite snare / 5 x 14 / 1968
We're huge fans of Acrolites in general, but there's something extra magical about the '60s Keystone Badge snares which is why they're so sought after by collectors. They just feel and sound better than later decades. Not only do they sound great, with a crisp crack and a wide tuning range, they're well built, made in the USA and are inexpensive drums that have stood the test of time and aren't going anywhere.
This Acrolite is in excellent condition with just a few light scratches. Serial #643458. Date stamp Sept 4, 1968. P83 strainer, new Remo Ambassador on top, and Evans snare side 300 on the bottom with a new Puresound snare wire.
