Ludwig Acrolite 10 Lug 5X14 Snare Drum

Ludwig Acrolite 14x5 Snare Drum for Sale

The Ludwig Acrolite series has long been admired by drummers for its iconic sound and timeless design. Originally introduced in 1963 as a student beginner's snare drum, the Ludwig Acrolite quickly became the choice of pro players in need of dry, cracking snare tone. While the Acrolite snare may have started out as a beginner's drum, this Ludwig has become famously sought after for recording studios and live performers because of the iconic sound.
