So well said. I feel exactly the same.My 1976 Acrolite. It's nothing special. It's just a great drum. I can tune that thing for any gig or session and quickly dial it in and get it right where it needs to be. I can also tune it way up or down between songs, if called for. It responds well to both brushes and sticks. I also love the internal muffler on that thing I can adjust with the turn of a dial. I don't have to pull out the t-shirt in my gig bag or mess around with my wallet. I miss that feature on most "modern" snare drums.
Ha, same here!
I guess that's a different way of seeing things. I don't know exactly what you meant by that in relation to my post but OK!A meal can be made of appetizers.
