Re: Why are we addicted to vintage drums?
I recently restored a Ludwig Supraphonic that was made one day after my 11th birthday, which was just after the Cubs' last World Series Championship. (Just kidding, I'm not QUITE that old). The drum sounds great, but I doubt it sounds that much better than a new one. It does have a muffler, which I prefer. The new ones don't always have one. Aside from that, I think my love for that drum is purely nostalgic.
