Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drum - Acrolite Snare Drum History - Ludwig Acrolite

So why is the Acrolite the Champion of all snare drums? To start off with, the Acrolite was made in huge quantities and became the starter snare drum for so many young drummers during the 60's and 70's.

And the most important part of being the Champion is the sound! These drums sound great for any playing situation. Add that to a very affordable price makes the Acro the Price-For-Sound champ!

Price will vary on the Acrolite based on the different versions. A basic price outline is the early Keystone versions from the 60's that have the smooth aluminum shell sell for more then the 70's version with the Blue and Olive Badge. Condition and originality always play a role in value.

There are also Acrolites that were "First Generation" and Acros that are deeper then the cataloged version. These will bring the most money because they would be rarer then the standard versions.

If you have a question about your Acrolite or want to sell yours, then let The Drum Experts help! Just email us a photo and we will get back to you.

There are little nuances between different versions of the Acrolite and we will go in more detail as the web site grows
