Default Re: Request help - ID this Ludwig Snare?

If it's really an 8 lug than more than likely it's a 60's acrolite that was painted black and someone added imperial lugs to it. An acrolite should have bowtie lugs and a supra-phonic should have ten imperial lugs. It actually looks kind of cool IMO and sort of resembles the look of the new black beauties that Ludwig offers now.

Even though this drum seems heavily modified I don't think the price seems all that bad. I guess it would need to be seen in person to make sure the paint job is decent and the strainer is a Ludwig.

Good luck!
