Acrylic drums deliver a combination of immense resonance and see-through cool looks, which has made them a favorite of decades of drummers who want to be heard (and seen). Originally made popular by John Bonham and his hulking amber-hued Ludwig Vistalite kit, fans of these see-through beauties have swelled in ranks with the likes of Dominic Howard of Muse and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. While vintage Ludwig Vistalites and their reissues are the most iconic Acrylic kits, many more brands have gotten in on the action including C&C, DW, Pearl, Crush and more. If you're set on the sights and sounds of an acrylic set, the choice is clear.
