1960s Ludwig Pre-Serial First Generation / Proto Acrolite : 5 x 14

$379

1960s Ludwig Pre-Serial Acrolite Prototype / First Generation Snare

Size : 5 x 14

Finish : Aluminum

 

Often referred to as a the Acrolite Prototype, the first generation of Ludwig Acrolites featured a textured aluminum shell, aluminum hoops and aluminum lugs. Because of the fragile nature of the aluminum parts, these drums didn't last long and many of the parts were replaced by more durable brass / steel parts. This acrolite sports the original textured shell along with chrome over brass hoops. The drum may or may not have had aluminum bowtie lugs, but now has durable 60s steel lugs. As a bonus, the drum includes era correct heads and snare strand.  It is in unrestored condition and will look great once given some proper TLC. Please note there is a very small nick in the bearing edge. This appears to be a factory flaw.
