Late 70's Ludwig Acrolite 14x5" 

Serial number: 1793864 - dating it to late 70's, 1978-79. 

These drums need no introduction. I believe every working drummer should have one in their arsenal. They are certainly peachy and perform wonderfully. This one is no exception.

With original P85, hoops, internal damper and butt end. The tension rods are perhaps a bit longer than ones I've normally seen on 5" drums. They are perhaps old stock from a 5.5" or 6.5". Two of the tension rods also don't match the others, but all work fine. Under the microscope you can see the strainer has a little kink in it, but it still works as well as a P85 can. Some of the lug mounting screws were stripped but these have now been swapped and secured.

There are scratches, to be expected, but this one plays beautifully. 

Freshly stripped, cleaned and polished, fitted with Remo Vintage A, Ambassador heads and Puresound wires.
