Ludwig Acrolite Classic Aluminum Snare Drum Matte Finish 5x14
Ludwig’s Acrolite Classic Snare Drums are very versatile drums with an aluminum shell which sounds great for brush playing and really comes through when recorded. This drum is also great for big band gigs because its aluminum shell cuts through better than most drums and can compete with a big bands sound. Aluminum also tends to be more responsive than wood drums and you can tell the difference when playing softly on this drum. I prefer the five-inch depth model because it seems to have a more controlled sound than the six and a half-inch model. This drum also blends well with very dry cymbals and ones with a lot of ping.
