Overview

Dry, crisp, and infinitely articulate: just a few choice descriptions one of the most popular aluminum snares ever, the Ludwig Acrolite. Originally introduced in the '60s as a student model but quickly currying a cult following of beginners and professionals alike for its distinctive dry tone and signature "crack," the Acrolite's iconic matte aluminum finish was superseded by the Black Galaxy sparkle "Blackrolite" in the 1990s. Capable of capturing the subtle ghost notes necessary in jazz while also delivering the volume and cutting tone to hold its own in punk or garage, the Acrolite is worthy of staple snare collection in any rig.
