Welcome On Stage Or In The Studio!
The Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drum has long been the choice of students learning to play the drums, but with time its reputation has grown, so that it now is welcomed onto the stage or into the studio, as well. The solid, seamless aluminum shell has a track record of durability, and is made from the same components, less 2 lugs, as the Supra-Phonic. It is now widely available in both 5X14 and 6.5X14 sizes. It features classic lugs, and the unique “Black Galaxy” finish gives the snare an appearance that sets it apart.
Many drummers claim the Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drum is as good as any in the reputable Ludwig lineup. The sound is slightly muted, though still crisp, which makes it perfect for quieter tracks and smaller venues live. This is the go-to snare of many professionals and gig playing amateurs alike. The drum is easy to tune, which should be done frequently.
Like many drums, the Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drum has evolved through different renditions over the years. Some employ poor quality wires or throw-offs. The drum has 8 lugs, not 10, and may create a tendency to over tighten, so go easy there.
Overall Rating - 5 Stars
The Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drum features near excellent quality, wonderful sound, and the price point is usually less than that of comparable Ludwigs, even the venerable Supra Phonic. For these reasons, we believe this is one of the better values on the market, and give it 5 Stars.
