Jun 22 1965 Ludwig Acrolite 14x5" 

Serial number: 256591

These drums need no introduction. 

This drum has been stripped, cleaned and polished in my workshop and fitted with brand new Remo heads and Puresound wires, all retailing over £50+. 

This Acrolite has scratches on the shell (to be expected; these drums came in awful cases which were used to carry a snare stand and sticks around in), this being said the hardware is in great condition, with original P86 strainer, baseball bat dampener and butt end.

The drum came to me with two badly matching hoops so I have invested £35+ in new 2.3mm chrome hoops which really do help to give the drum some nice body. I have done the same on my 60's Acrolite and it really helped. The old steel hoops don't do these drums any justice. 

I haven't had a 60's model Acrolite in for quite some time as they're proving harder to track down in decent condition so I imagine this won't last too long. These drums are selling for around £300, unrestored and without new heads or hoops so I think £325 is a great price to be had. Enjoy! 

Thanks for looking.
