    Default Possible new (old) snare day!

    Taking a road trip this morning to look at a 1968 KB Acrolite that looks to be in incredible shape with the exception that the original owner gouged their name into the shell below the bead. If it is not too bad I will probably pick up as I love my sons Acro and have wanted one for my kit for a while. I really like the looks of the keystone badge acros, so was happy to see this one go up for sale. Will post pics if I get it.

    Here she is! March 27th 1968 date stamp. The shell is in incredible shape with the exception of the small inscription of the owners name and drivers license number. You can't even see it unless you are right up on it. Need to put new heads on it, but otherwise it needs no work. Merry Christmas to me!!!!!!

    I think the person's name takes about 37.5% off the actual value. Work it!

    Thanks Bish! It took at least $100 off from what I have seen on Reverb/GC Used/Music Go Round, etc. It truly is mint with that exception. Going to put new heads on later today and take her for a spin!
