Ludwig Acrolite 5x14 1965 w/ Case. Original hardware. Killer snare drum. A must have for every drummer. The hardware has some pitting but no rust through the chrome. Case is original with a spot for a stand. Both locks and handle work just fine. Keystone badge.
It's a classic and always will be! Dry, but still bites and has good response. Fitted with Puresound snare wires. The internal muffler works great, throw works well. The shell has a fair amount of pitting and wear. Great player drum!
This Ludwig Black Beauty is in great working condition! Minor signs of wear shown in photos above. This snare comes as shown ONLY. No stand or accessories included.
