      Comments about Ludwig Acrolite Classic Aluminum Snare Drum:

      Great, classic snare drum. Tunes easy, great almost woody tone. Lightweight. Very sensitive, versatile. Rimshots are a dream come true! One main problem. Why would anyone pay 400+ for the re-issue w/o tone control muffle, when they can get an original for around 100.00.???

        Comments about Ludwig Acrolite Classic Aluminum Snare Drum:

        I got this snare used for almost nothing at an auction, I was the only bidder. I changed the heads to Remo and replaced the worn out snare wires for Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wires. It sounds better than the snare that came with my Ludwig Epic kit. The buzz caused by two of my toms has been completely eliminated and the tone is much sharper.
        I pretty much just play jam sessions with my friends; we are getting too old to play seriously. But this snare with the Epic kit and I am taken back to the days when Led Zeppelin ruled the Rock World.

        Comments about Ludwig Acrolite Classic Aluminum Snare Drum:

        Has an open sound, rimshots are really loud. Bright and sensitive. I would probably recommend the Supraphonic, or get this used for cheap

          Comments about Ludwig Acrolite Classic Aluminum Snare Drum:

          I have been playing drums for about 40 years, I have owned lots of snare drums. This has a sweet sound, you can tune it high and have a crack sound or you can tune it medium and have a little ring. I really like this drum and I will keep it forever thank you.
