I've really only heard the term "modular" in reference to Ludwig kits of the 70's and 80's. Their "Classic" line used old style tom mounts with 9.5 mm "L" rods that mounted in the shell brackets. The "Modular" drums refered to modular hardware which used 1" pipe tom holders (similar to modern Pearl brand, slightly larger) that mounted onto huge tom brackets on the shells. Other than the tom holders, the lines were pretty much identical.

I drink almond, soy and hemp milk, though agree bovine, ovine and caprine/hircine (any animal) milk will interfere negatively with healthy bodily function and ultimately impede drumming ability.

Modular is just a name who's meaning fits positively in the marketing scheme of drum gear. Any drum set/hardware can be rightfully seen as 'modular'.
