Powerful Acrylic Snare with Vistalite's Trademark Vibe

This stunning Ludwig Vistalite snare drum features vintage-styled hardware for an authentic Vistalite vibe and precise bearing edges for the ideal blend of snap, crack, and sustain. This classic-styled snare has the look and sound of stadium rock of the 1970s with plenty of projection to fill a venue. The Vistalite snare's hardened acrylic shell delivers a louder, punchier, and livelier sound than wood, which is great for adding classic-rock textures to any kit, and makes the perfect complement to your Vistalite shell pack.

Ludwig Vistalite 6.5" x 14" Snare Drum at a Glance:
  • See-through acrylic shell for classic Vistalite tone and appeal
  • 1970s hardware for an authentic Vistalite vibe
  • Vistalite: part of the Ludwig Legacy
See-through acrylic shell for classic Vistalite tone and appeal

The Vistalite snare's crack, slap, and open acrylic sound lends an authentic vibe to classic rock and adds interesting new textures to black metal, indie rock, and Motown mixes where other snares come across too sterile. And since its see-through finished shell looks so great under stage lights, your audience won't be able to keep their eyes off of you.

1970s hardware for an authentic Vistalite vibe

This snare pays tribute to the original Vistalite series with classic-styled lugs and a '70s badge for Vistalite's unmistakable look right out of the box. Precise bearing edges and true Ludwig hoops strike the perfect balance of projection, attack, and sustain.

Vistalite: part of the Ludwig Legacy

Ludwig has enjoyed one of the proudest legacies in percussion since 1909, and is a favorite name here among Sweetwater drummers. The world has experienced Ludwig's game-changing looks and sounds courtesy of Ringo Starr on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964, onstage with Cream's Ginger Baker in the late '60s, and at Live Aid with Queen's Roger Taylor in 1985.

Ludwig Vistalite 6.5" x 14" Snare Drum Features:
  • Powerful crack and projection for stage use
  • The perfect complement to your Vistalite shell pack
  • Finished see-through acrylic shell delivers Vistalite's trademark vibe
  • Classic lugs and 1970s blue/olive badge provide an authentic look
  • Precise bearing edges balance attack and resonance
Add the power and crack of acrylic to your kit with the Ludwig Vistalite snare drum!

Back to The Future

Ludwig being the Most Famous Name in Drums, had this new old Idea to reissue this beautiful Limited Edition Vistalite Tequila Sunrise Snare Drum, which is part of series of drum kits limited to 100 total worldwide, 50 drum kits in the United States and 50 Kits for the overseas market. My take on this, Ludwig did a really good job on this, the look and sound will appeal to just about anyone who likes to have something classic but modern in there collection of snare drums. This snare drum brings a classic timeless sound that Ludwig has always been know for. My personal preference to bring this to its full potential is a 30 wire snare stand. I'm very delited Ludwig decided to reissue this for he other fourth coming generations to enjoy.
