Welcome On Stage Or In The Studio!
For many years, the Ludwig Acrolite snare drum has been the choice of students learning to play the drums. With time, its reputation has only grown. It’s now welcomed onto the stage or into the studio as well. The solid, seamless aluminum shell has a track record of durability. Made from the same components, less 2 lugs, as the Supraphonic. Now widely available in both 5X14 and 6.5X14 sizes. Featuring classic lugs, and the unique “Black Galaxy” finish that gives the snare an appearance that sets it apart.
Many drummers claim the Ludwig Acrolite snare 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 and wonderful sound. The price point is usually less than that of comparable Ludwigs. Even the venerable Supraphonic. As a result, we believe this is one of the better values on the market. We give it 5 Stars.
