why not? I did because I chose the vintage build. It was the look I was going for. I have a ratchet I bought for a few bucks at home depot works great
My broadkaster is also a vintage build, so I got this tool as well. However, I though this tool is kind of crappy and was looking for a real wrench I did not know that those are considered good toolsJust don't lose it
I have the socket wrench thing that came with my Ludwig set. I find it to be kind of a pain, but it works. here is a pic of the wrench I bought at home depot. the closed end is a ratchet mechanism so works really well. it was around $5Awesome! Thanks for all your replies! A lot of helpful tips!!
I was wondering if it's only something collectors would like and not really use it when playing gigs.
I only own two kits, and both have the rail consolette: an old 60s ludwig and a new Gretsch Broadkaster. On my ludwig, I have the 13" tom on a snare stand because the rail consolette is already a bit corroded and worn out, and I wasn't too happy with it when trying to set it up. I think with the new broadkaster it works well.

Yep, that's been my problem with them since I hit a growth spell in middle school, I was never happy with the tom that low even at maximum height. I have always liked the look and vibe they have but not practical for me physically. Two of my remaining 3 kits are virgin, but I am most definitely a center post guy, but still love the look of all your cool rails!I used to up until the coronavirus. The reason being that I can't get my rack tom high enough as I have spent all winter/spring raising everything for better posture. Ends up I need the tom really high and the rail doesn't go that high.
