Re: Why are we addicted to vintage drums?
The reality is that looks, nostalgia and brand appeal matter. And there's nothing wrong with that. We buy what we want, and there are obviously a lot of musicians who want vintage instruments. Like music itself, it's not supposed to be purely subjective or scientific. If a vintage kit makes you squeal, get it!
That's the whole beauty of it, man. No point in fighting it. They'll make you happy, and there aren't enough things in life that accomplish that, so take 'em when you find 'em, I say.
