This is my favorite example of an Acro being used at the stadium level by one of the greatest to do it. Good lawd, what a sound. Music starts at 2:30.
I used to have his yamaha signature snare drum when I was a bit younger like 20. But it got ruined in my parents basement it flooded an the shell warped an hardware rusted was a incredible snare for a 13x6.5 shell... Of course they didnt give me the money to replace snare with their insurance claimI dig how, even at that tension, the Acro still has tons of body. Of course, Steve Jordan is playing it so that might factor in a bit.
Holy Sheet! 1050$! YOu could buy Two Acrolites for that !!! "Could be like this one with bowties added??? 5.5x13 steel.....

65 supra is nice I got a 76 Supraphonic 402 that is super shiny an clean only 2 scratches in the 2 years I've owned it I'm second owner.Still a lot of high valued endorsed drummers using the Supra and Acro as there main snare live.
I love my 65 Supra too. It has a vibe other snares don’t.
Mine is all beat up but it was used by jazz legend John Engels and got it for €150 at his auction so I leave it as is.65 supra is nice I got a 76 Supraphonic 402 that is super shiny an clean only 2 scratches in the 2 years I've owned it I'm second owner.
It's definitely a Kep! Gregg would often use rogers & Ludwig hardware on his earlier snare drums. When Matt was a DW endorser Gregg built him a snare outfitted with DW hardware as well.
It's a Kep! Gregg finishes the steel shells with a matte finish, so they do look like a titanium shell.Listening to the video now.
Are we all absolutely sure its a Keplinger?
It looks and sounds like a Dunnett titanium to me.
....btw, I have it on good authority that 10 was recorded on an older N&C Horizon that weighs about an ounce.
