A used one or brand new? Even brand new the most they for is like $230. I got my vintage one for $45.

I couldn't tell you what my cost. My parents bought it for me in 1979. I'll tell you I spent years thinking it was some POs entry level drum but I've growm to appreciate it over the years.

Right now its my main snare, the tuning range makes it never get old

Oh I love my ole' Acro. It's from the 60's with the keyhole badge and the Baseball Bat muffler.
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!

I have had three or four of them now, seems like every time I have had one, theres this kid that comes along with a little promise, poorer parents, and a whole lot of desire. The blackrolite I currently have I paid 64 dollars for it. And I use it occasionally. Its a great drum, I recommend it to anyone.

I found a very clean Acrolite at a pawn shop with the completely useless and oversized UFO case. I put one of my Trick to Ludwig kits on it along with the butt retrokit and I really like this drum!
