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.

Wow, not sure what happened there. I edited the link in my post to a different one. Forward to 2:30ish to start the song. Hope that one works.

Holy %$!@ that Acrolite is cranked tight as Fk. It's a miracle the head dont explode from the pressure
I 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. :D

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 claim

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.

Even the old head still has plenty of life in it.

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.

It's a Kep! Gregg finishes the steel shells with a matte finish, so they do look like a titanium shell.

I own a Ludwig acrolite that doesn't have a center bead. It's a one off prototype snare.
