Re: Vintage Vs. Modern
I love both! I have new and old drums.
I enjoy playing my old Gretsch with its round bearing edges and its classic sizes.
I like my new drums equally well.
I'm glad that I have both.
I will never sell my vintage Grestch kit! I bought it new in 1974.
The 14x22 bass drum, The 13x9 mounted tom, The 16x16 floor tom.
I love that kit!
I also couldn't do without my newer drums.
All of my newer kits are in smaller sizes for easy transport and play at gigs.
I suggest owning several drum kits from different years and of different sizes and configurations.
Life is too short not to have several kits.
I kind of like old drums:)
