Re: Why are we addicted to vintage drums?
As was already mentioned, for me it's the mojo and what it represents. Like many here I've come full circle and am basically playing the drums I lusted about when I was a kid - stuff from the 70s. Bobdadruma has done the same thing from his era and has his Ludwigs from the 60s.
I've had new kits and yes, they can make the same sounds. But those will be the vintage kits for the kids who are in their early teens now when they hit their 40s ;)
