    It is in phenomenal shape. Fresh heads on it, everything works as it should. I couldn't be happier. It came with the rubber drum mute as well as a case. I picked it up for $160 and the dude brought it to me from 45 minutes away.

    Pics of other items!
    I think it’s a practice pad (that stores on top of snare drum / or mute) and maybe a UFO case.

    Another name for your drum I’ve heard it called is a Blackrolite.

    Just ran the serial number on it. It appears to be a 1983 model.

    Correct. They begin putting the numbers inside of a box in 84.

    Never can go wrong with an Acrolite. Every now and then I see a couple on CL or Facebook. Most are the Black ones like yours, but once in a while a grey one with B/O badges pops up.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    They’re really the same drum. Ones painted with the Black Galaxy finish.
    Both aluminum or made with Ludwigs “Alumaloy”
