What We Think

The Vistalite's iconic sound comes from an acrylic shell that is fused together with reinforced seams. Acrylic drums have been one of the shell materials that has an unmistakable sound that delivers a clear and defined cut that you won't get from most drums. The thin acrylic shell creates a crisp and full-bodied note that we love throughout a diverse range of tuning allowing these drums to be right at home in a variety of musical applications. The classic-styled lugs and Blue and Olive badge pays tribute to the original 70s era drums but with the precision of today's manufacturing.

The Vistalite comes in a variety of sizes and color options that can help you find your signature look and sound. Discover for yourself why so many have reached for the Ludwig Vistalite as their go-to drum today. 

Manufacturer's Description from Ludwig

Notorious for their attack as they are for their stunning crystalline looks, Vistalite acrylic drums are a statement both sonically and visually. Vistalite drums are produced to highest construction standards with reinforced seams and crisp bearing edges for optimum shell integrity and tuning range. Since 1972, Vistalite drums have been performed on and coveted by some of music's top players.

Manufactured under strict guidelines to retain shell integrity, today's Vistalite delivers pure, round tone through a fully-stabilized shell and dual reinforced seams; without succumbing to the cracking that plagued the kits of yesterday.


About Manufacturer

Touted as “the most famous name on drums,” Ludwig stands today as one of the most legendary and revered American drum manufacturers of all time. Founded in 1909 under the name Ludwig & Ludwig, the company has existed under a number of different owners and names, with the Ludwig brand operating today as a subsidiary of Conn-Selmer. Throughout almost 110 years of change, one thing has remained constant: Ludwig’s dedication to building high-quality drums with that signature Ludwig tone. Over the years, Ludwig drums have laid down solid backbeats and infectious grooves at the hands of drummers like John Densmore, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, and of course, Ringo Starr. Their iconic kits from the 60s and 70s remain highly coveted by collectors and players alike, but their new offerings continue to uphold the legendary Ludwig name just the same.
