Default CB, or Westbury vintage

Lots of love for these OLDER shells, so which one do you feel made the better quality drum?..Not the new gear, but the decent shells from the 70,s

Answer;; Westbury, hands down. Solid shells, nice detail, no glaring flaws, traditional sizes, tight wrap etc
Weakness; hardware, not the best, but very few had solid stands back then...even the 6 lug cos snare bites back with conviction!

Thx for all the feedback.

I don't know anything about Westbury.

MIJ I'm guessing? Are they better than other MIJs? Just asking, because I really don't know. I'd like to see some pics.

Don't mean to annoy the drum snobbies here, but this traditional size Westbury jazz kit is quite remarkable, as is the 6 lug snare drum...esp the snare drum! Played a gospel 6 song set, and it proved to me...that the drummer makes the difference. There is no reason to feel ashamed to play these in public..regardless what THEY say.
