302's ya say?! What inspired that?I saw one of these 6.5" Acros online and fell in love! Tube lugs, keystone badge, P88AC throw AND P35 butt! I already have a 6.5" B/O badge Acro, so I knew it would sound incredible. Had my Ludwig dealer, Tony at 2112 Percussion, call up Ludwig and he ordered their remaining stock.
I put Gretsch 302 hoops and a coated CS dot on it. Sounds like pure rock and roll. One of my favorite snares.

I have the 18” in the same finish (although over 20 years they are not perfectly matched, but close enough for me) and wanted get something even smaller. There is just something I love about a 16” for quieter gigs. As for the 20”,I just think that is the most versatile for most other musical situations I’m in.Interesting that you got the 16” and 20” bass drums, instead of 18” and 22”. Thought process?
