I am considering cutting down my 80's ludwig power toms to standard depth. Aside from having to put new bearing edges I am wondering if there are any problems in doing this. It looks like I can cut where the first ( bottom ) lug holes are and use the top second hole as a template for drilling a new top hole? My reason for wanting to do this is to make the tom angles more manageable for playing which has been an annoyance since I bought them. ( I am relatively short ), and to cut down on the volume a little. I am considering doing this because I haven't been able to sell them for what I think is a resonable price and I have always liked the sound of them. The other question is do you all think I would be ruining them?
