Ludwig 1974 Snare
Originally introduced in 1964 as a student drum, the “Ludwig Acrolite” quickly became the choice of pro players in need of dry, cracking snare tone.
This drum’s serial number (1548544) indicates production circa 1974; made in Chicago, IL, USA.
The drum outfit includes the original circa 1974 clamshell hard case, with a late-model Ludwig imported stand, and a generic rubber practice pad.
I bought this drum new in 1975 to practice my rudiments; I gave the original snare stand to my drum teacher, as his was worn out, and it matched the stands on his antique WFL (William F. Ludwig) Drumset.
