He sold lots of his gear off at my local drum shop they're from Stourbridge which is about 7 miles away same as the Wonderstuff. I had one of his ride cymbals and got rid of it like an idiot.Now there's a name I've not heard in a long, long time. A long time..
Takes me back to my distant youth.

The acro is a killer snare no doubt. But there are (now especially) the same and sometimes even better options.
What remains is nostalgia feeling.
Don’t forget the hayday of the Acro was in a time when there wasn’t much else (nor Internet or global sales like today), and most (hit) recordings where done in the US, so it was designated to be the most recorded snare, even if there was a proper competitor to begin with.
