Re: Age

I define vintage for myself as something made before I was born. Acordingly to that, I have no interest in drum parafernalia after 1970. It's a personal point of view and of course I understand that...

Re: Ludwig floor tom correct legs

Thanks, Mark.
Yes indeed the legs it came with are too short to me and, as you can see, one of them has a little rust. Mine are 16,5" rubber included though. Now I know the legs I'm considering are...
