Vintage 60’s Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drum w Baseball Bat Internal Muffle



Here’s a vintage 60’s Ludwig Acrolite snare drum.  The fellow we bought it from took exceptional care of his gear and this snare drum reflects that care.  

  • 5 x 14”
  • 8 lugs
  • Keystone badge, serial number 532892
  • Baseball bat internal muffle knob
  • Minor scuffs in the sides
  • Very minor pitting on the hardware

Please note:  we are not 100% sure this snare has all the original parts.  The previous owner took his drums apart for cleaning and we’ve noticed a few had switched-out parts.  Please look over the photos.  By bidding on this you are understanding that we have disclosed that not all parts may be original and that we have described it to the best of our ability.

Great vintage snare.  Perfect for an add on to your set or for the collector.  In very nice shape for the age.
