Thank you, thank you very much....btw, welcome to the forum.
If you're purplexed enough, you could start a new thread, outling what you're looking for in a new snare drum. Maybe we can help you whittle down the field a little.
Unfortunately, it absolutely will pop up again and the add will not be updated. They'll sell it to someone else as an Acrolite and the odds of that person finding out they've been ripped off will be low. I've seen GC do it a dozen times.Thanks, everyone! I've decided to return it to one of the GC stores in my area (Fairfax, VA).
Just in case it pops up again, beware of an advertised 10-lug chrome "Acrolite" with a B/O badge, serial no. 1683596
Yep! It’s back on their site listed as an Acrolite. SMHUnfortunately, it absolutely will pop up again and the add will not be updated. They'll sell it to someone else as an Acrolite and the odds of that person finding out they've been ripped off will be low. I've seen GC do it a dozen times.
The machine at work again…Yep! It’s back on their site listed as an Acrolite. SMH
Yes there have been a few 10-lug Acrolites in the wild. I think @mlayton probably has one or ten squirreled away!Like others have said, not an acrolite. My guess is that is a Ludwig ss Rocker snare with a new strainer and a bo badge. Is there even such a thing as a 10 lug Acro? I thought acrolites were only 8 lug!
I've read that there are some Acrolites that got chromed, and some that have 10-lugs... these may have been special ordered that way or they may have been accidental at the factory. I also read that there are Supras that have 8 lugs and not 10... I suppose mistakes happen during production and it doesn't mean they're fake. What I bought from GC however, was definitely a steel drum (magnet-tested), so it was false advertising. While it sounded good, I took it back out of principle, and the fact that I wouldn't have paid $200 for a used steel drum that appeared to be frankensteined.The first red flag was: "Acrolite, chrome"
