Once perceived as a student-level snare drum, the sound of the Ludwig Acrolite Snare has become an artist favorite for bright, dry response and articulate play. the Acrolite's seamless aluminum shell reflects Ludwig excellence in quality and leaves no question that it is simply a tremendous snare drum at any level.Made in Monroe, NC. USA and featuring chrome Classic dual snare lugs, P85 strainer, and Blue/Olive Badge.
like a Supraphonic with more top end bite. want to know what a Acrolite sounds like: used on the Police records by Stewart Copeland in the late 70's & early 80's. the 6 1/2 has a bit more depth that really compliments the high pitched crack so famous. one of the last great values in American made drums.
This drum sounds best with a medium coated head on top, with a thin bottom head for brightest tone, but other types of heads could work for your situation.
