90% of gigs I take a modern Yamaha kit out, but tonight I took a notion and loaded an early 60's Ludwig super classic into the van instead.
Was a quieter gig and the old drums are less loud and have a vibe.

Stunned at how different they actually sound from a modern kit. Super Warm, really full, resonant and big. Not the loudest kit for sure but they really do have a thing that a modern kit cant do.
Wouldn't use them for everything but kinda blown away by the rich tones.

That's how I feel about my 74 Slingerland 3-plies . I have nice "modern" drums too , but generally they're all meat and no potatoes .
