Re: Vintage WFL Ludwigs, need info, advice
I'm a vintage drum collector/player - yes, drilling holes in vintage drums is not good. But, they are still very nice drums/hardware/finish....and everything about them. They are certainly not worth what an unaltered shellpack would bring but they are great drums. I'm sure you're looking around lots to see what the value would be for these....but, in the end, they are worth a lot to you if you like them and that's what counts.
Again...they are very nice drums - congratulations! Extra holes or no extra holes - nice find!
