I have the same kit. I would also have no issues gigging it if I still did that. However, I'd rather gig the Midtown's for ease of transport and shock factor.The only vintage kit I have is a 70's Pearl Wood-Fiberglass kit. I will be gigging with it this weekend actually. The old hex tom arms are not ideal for positioning but they are solid. Luckily by then they were using a solid spur design so that's not an issue.
