1990's Ludwig Acrolite 14x5" Black Galaxy

Often dubbed the ‘Blackrolite’.

Not as vintage as my usual offerings, but equally as worthy. This is a very clean example, and comes freshly off my bench - stripped and cleaned. It is fitted with Remo Ambassador and Evans hazy heads and Ludwig wires, all with plenty of life left in them. This model does exactly what an Acrolite should and would compliment any gigging and/or recording drummers’ arsenal.

Text by Reverb: Initially marketed as a student snare during its launch in 1963, the Ludwig Acrolite quickly gained renown through the music world for the instrument's dry, aggressive "crack" and became a favorite among rock drummers. Made from a single aluminum sheet in a matte finish and housed in 2.3mm triple-flanged chrome hoops and bowtie lugs, the Acrolite is a durable piece of equipment with a refined edge. The 5x14 model benefits from a shallower depth with utmost sensitivity and a focused, sharp attack. The 1990s models, sometimes referred to as "Blackrolite," featured a new black sparkle finish that rounded out the original lifespan of the Acrolite series.
