Vintage: Rogers (Up until early 70s).
Modern: DW Classics. (Best sounding modern drums that replicate vintage).
Best build quality does not = best sound. Many vintage drums that are highly sought after are not made of the best build quality (slightly out of round shells, less than perfect...
It will be interesting to see what DW does with Slingerland! Ludwig Classic Maple do sound great, The DW Performance series were a big surprise (in a good way). Which drum companies are making their own shells? That makes a difference imo.
