Re: The matching snare

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Congratulations! Just great workhorse drums, and by changing heads, snares, tunings, you can make it sound like whatever you want it to. Don't ever let it get away!

I just finished building this snare, and I believe that it is a one of a kind in looks. I rarely see any wraps that feature stone, and this one particularly. It is Petoskey stone, which is only found...

Re: My P-86 does NOT fit in my Supra!

The holes in my Acro were tight. The screws with the P-86 went in like self tapping screws, but they went in OK. They are tight, just crank the screws in. If I remember correctly, the P-86 screw...

Re: Rogers Dynasonic Custom Built Snare 10 Lugs

I had a early 70's Rogers COB 5", It was in perfect (showroom) condition and got around $500. The finish on this one is a little rougher, but it is probably worth $400-$500, if everything works on it.

Re: what's the effect of central lugs on the sound

One comment that I have heard from some makers is that having a one point central lug has the potential of causing stress at that point because you have tension rods pulling in opposite directions...

Re: Should I get this snare?

The LM402 is as close to a do it all drum as you will ever find. Having said that, Acrolites are equally awesome. Some consider them to be the "little brother to the supras, but I think that unfair....

I have been intrigued by free floating design, but that means you put up with equal head tensions. On snares, I find the best sound to be when the snares side is around a fourth higher than the...
