I have found that there are drums that are just old, like a low end CB700. I don’t know that will ever be considered vintage. Nobody is schlepping one of those kits onto Antique Roadshow and some guy with a funny twisted mustache saying “Sir, this is your lucky day as this highly desirable CB700 drum kit will go at auction for $10,000!”
90s isn’t vintage yet. I don’t consider 80s vintage, though it’s closer.
40 years seems a good starting point , but I still find it hard to think of the 80's that way .
Badges influence my perception , Keystone, Brass/Black Singerland,RB Gretsch for example .
In the guitar world, pre-CBS Fenders have their own cache . Fullerton Rogers owned by the same outfit ? XP-8 ? Granitone B/O ? 5 ply Slingerland ?
