New to the board and looking to start my journey into learning to play the vibraphone. I'm 50 years old and have played various instruments (keyboards mainly) over the years. The vibraphone has always appealed to me and I'm excited about learning to play.
I'm looking at a 60-70s pre-Ludwig M55 that's for sale in my area. The question I have one simple question (for now): are the older M55s harder to breakdown and move than the Pro-traveller versions?
Anything else one can share about the pre-Ludwig models would be greatly appreciated.
