That should be from the same period as the other one that was discussed.

Thanks Mike!

Green glass, can I ask what you sold it for?
I've loaned mine to a buddy but will be getting it back soon.

Arrow Re: Dating an Acrolite

I thought you might ask.
Had it on CL for weeks here in Los Angeles at $140.00
No takers.
Lowered it progressively.
Finally at $100.00, I got a lot of responses.
Too many responses.
Sold it for $100.00.
But one guy said if it did not sell, he would give me $150.00.
Well I promised it to a guy and he got it for $100.00.
So price range in LA, CA is 100-150.
That is a lot of drum for 100 bucks.
But....NO SHIPPING.

I agree. There are way under valued but fantastic drums. It is not possible to make them sound bad.

Thanks for letting me know.

I got it back and have started using it but I need to fix something.
The little screw that's above the tone knob is missing. What is the correct size nut and bolt that goes there?
