I also feel that I am a caretaker. I play and enjoy my old drums but I take care to do no harm to them.
The previous owners kept my drums for 45 years without even scratching them. I can't help but feeling obligated to show respect to them, and the drums by doing the same.
This is a recent development in my character. I have never felt this way about my drums before. Since I acquired these drums my attitude has changed.
Perhaps there is an unseen force that surrounds my drums. I feel special when I play them. Musicians that I frequently play with have noticed a difference in me that was enough for to them to make comments about. Hmmm??? Life is full of mysteries.
I kind of like old drums:)
