The sound of the Ludwig Acrolite Snare has become an essential snare in the collections of most professional drummers and is also found in many recording studios as a favored “house snare”.  It has become an artist favorite for its bright, dry response, its lively projection and articulate play.

Triple-flange Hoops:
A lot livelier than their die-cast counterparts. These hoops help give the drum a more vibrant, open sound that gives it plenty of power when struck dead center and tons of articulation for ghost notes. Though they may not be as heavy as die-cast hoops, they certainly still deliver a sharp rim shot, crystal clear side stick, and reliable tuning.

P-85 Strainer:
The P-85 is the classic Ludwig throw-off everyone has come to know and love. Since it’s introduction in mid 60’s this throw-off has become the yardstick to which all other throw offs are measured. This thing is easily adjustable and provides precise and accurate snare tension. The cast butt-plate is super reliable and provides solid playability.    

Mini Classic lugs and Vented badge
Mini Classic lugs and vented badge, the seamless, beaded aluminum shell of the Acrolite snare drum reflects Ludwig excellence in quality and leaves no question that it is simply a tremendous snare drum at any level.
