Ludwig has proven to be one of the world's premier snare makers for a century and counting. The Ludwig Acro brass snare drum builds upon the company's shell, hardware, and finishing mastery by offering stage and studio players of the day something altogether unique. The Ludwig Acro brass snare drum features a brushed 1mm beaded brass shell to supply lasting strength, beauty, and tone. It's crowned with polished triple-flanged hoops and a host of classic Ludwig appointments, such as bow tie Small Twin lugs and a weathered brass Keystone badge, that really up the old-school Ludwig vibe and response. You also get a P86 throw off for real-world performance demands and an added dash of that classic Ludwig character.
