Re: So Who Built My Kit?

Thanks for chiming in Marc!

Wow, just when we thought we had this figured out, you came up with this information. Somewhere on the forum, I believe this Yamamoto was mentioned as a possible...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

I'm a sucker for red sparkle kits, and that kit looks immaculate. The price isn't crazy either, and the seller is open to offers, but the shipping is to high, at least for me.

Re: Evans 360 uv1

I've been hearing really good things about these drum heads, especially on YouTube. But I gather they sound like G1s, except they have a better coating.

Forum member, DrumBob, is big on these drum...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Oooof! I'd regret that myself. What a beautiful kit, and the sizes are spot on as well. I love the 2 floor tom set-up.

Great price to, especially considering the big sizes and condition, but the...

Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

Checking that pesky inflation calculator, that $100 was almost $500 in 75. Crazy, huh? Still a good deal, but I think the surfer wound up with a pretty decent board as well!:p

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

I can't imagine that you could make any drums in Wisconsin, or anywhere in the USA, for these prices. There cheaper, by quite a bit actually, than the entry level Ludwig Breakbeats and other name...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

According to this guy, this kit is a limited edition and limited run, so this doesn't look like a long term endeavor by Vox, or whoever is selling this.

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Ok, they have my interest. I dig it. I love the bass drum and the angled BD mounted cymbal arm. Looks very cool to my eye. Not sure about the wrap though. What the heck is that? I'd have to see that...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Ok, so now I'm really confused.

It seems that Trixon drums already have a full line of cheap drums, Chinese made I have to think, so what do you mean that Trixon is returning? Look like they...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

They are odd for sure, but in a good way. I like them. The bass drum is obviously cool as heck and the set up of the toms is as well, however, they look hard to play laying so flat like that.

Hey,...

Not for nothing, but if Kenny Jones let's his lady friends sit on his floor tom, then of course it's going to fall apart! DOH:eek:

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Well, I'm good with it.

Reproduce them all. Some guys want new drums, and they don't care about anything vintage and the problems that can come with them. Especially a brand like Trixon drums,...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Yeah, that's about $2300 American. Pretty steep for sure, but not completely out of line compared to some of the other boutique makers out there.

I don't know, so I'll ask, do they sound like...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

I'm kind of curious about how they'll be priced. These were pretty expensive BITD, so I imagine they will be again.

What do you guys think?

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

You are probably correct, these are a niche market kind of drum set and always were. But even the niche market can be profitable.

I don't see it as a bad thing, just another choice to consider.

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

From the title of the thread and the wording in your post, you seem to dislike this revival, yet weren't you all for the Slingerland revival deal with DW?

What's the difference?

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

In a live gig situation, I doubt anybody in the audience would have heard a difference in any of these kits.

And not for anything, but that MIJ sounded as good as any of those other kits and it...

Re: RIP Neil peart

I agree that the rock life can be really tough, but unless I'm wrong, I don't think Neil led the typical rock & roll life. He was in a good long time marriage with his wife and daughter, both...
