VINTAGE: Ludwig Acrolite - Keystone Badge - 60's - *Pre-Serial*
Please select all options.
A total classic - every drummer should have an Acrolite in their arsenal.
This snare was sourced from San Antonio, Texas, USA.
A very slick early 60's edition Acrolite with the Keystone Badge and Pre-serial. This one is specifically date stamped with April 12, 1964!
The Acrolite is THE drum for that fatback tone from all your favourite vintage records.
The Acrolite is a light weight aluminium shell with 8 Lugs. Coming standard with Ludwig's P85 throw-off and butt plate, as well as triple flange hoops.
P85 Throw-off is working in good condition.
This snare is in original condition with a few tweaks. Internal muffler has been removed (old studio trick to eliminate extra rattle/buzz). This one also has two random holes drilled in another side of the drum - see pics. Fairly small and clean and reflected in the price of this vintage stunner.
A brand new Remo heads - coated Ambassador + Hazy
Upgraded Pure-Sound snare wires.
This snare is set-up and ready to go now as is. Pictures are of exact drum available.
