With this Used Ludwig 14 x 5 Acrolite Snare Drum, you can own a piece of Ludwig history! Original from the early 1960's, this vintage Ludwig Acrolite was first released as a drum for students as a lightweight and inexpensive drum, but its bright tone and versatile sound later gained favor with professional drummers everywhere, making the Acrolite one of the most popular snare drums in Ludwig's catalog.

    From the 1963 Ludwig Catalog:Acrolite: lightens the drum, brightens the tone! Exciting new advances in drum design and construction provide the first all-metal snare drum and a new low price. Ludwig's wonder metal ACROLITE makes possible a new lightweight drum with resonance and tone found only in more expensive models. The new Acrolite drum features Ludwig's new ACOUSTI-PERFECT shell design, the famous one piece beaded metal shell, 8 self-aligning tension casings, and triple-flanged hoops. Hoops, shell, and tension casings are bright finished.
