Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

I've also got a set of '67 Burgundy Sparkle Ludwigs in 12/13/16/22 configuration and I would love to find a 14" or 16" floor tom to add to the set. I never use the 12" tom on this particular set. I...

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

Right, undoubtedly made in Indonesia or somewhere else in Asia. And lots of big words and marketing spin that ultimately means zilch. As I said, Trixon drums should have remained a distant memory.

Re: Can anyone help identify this drum?

I'm going to guess Duplex, but I'm not sure about that. I had a chance to buy an ancient Duplex snare drum years ago and walked away, as I had no practical application for it. The seller wanted over...

Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

Cool. I like alternating toms and shaking things up occasionally.

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

So, there is only one US dealer who owns the company, and most of what they offer are budget priced kits and so forth. Some of the sets feature outmoded, elongated power rack toms that went out of...

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

Did you ever see the photo of Bill Haley and his drummer and the Trixon set? The drummer has the same odd setup and both are wearing a king's crown.

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

This is a true story; when I interviewed Kenney Jones for my book, he told me he bought a Trixon Speedfire set ("It had a bass drum like a tank wheel") after he got in the Small Faces, and within...

Re: Rare Japanese vintage drums I can't find any info on- anyone??

It's definitely worth $25. Are there more drums? I have never seen that finish.

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

The average drummer wants drums that look like traditional drums. They don't want oddities that stray too far from what a traditional drum or drumset looks like. Obviously, you're not that type of...

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

Jim, read the post below yours. These reissues are too unusual for the average drummer to embrace, as they were years ago, here in the USA.

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

You misread my post, sorry to say. I clearly said Ovation electric guitars have very little collector value, not Trixon/Vox drums, which obviously have their fans. But, in terms of overall appeal to...

Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Everything old and weird is new again, it seems. To be displayed at NAMM 2020. I'm astounded. I know at least one member here who will be ecstatic. Whatever. To each his own.

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

Of course, that's what sound guys do, mostly because the many of them don't know how to EQ drums properly.

I once had a sound man tape up all my batter heads to the point that there was no ring...

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

I noticed the snare buzz, and all the bass drums sounded like dead shoeboxes with that stupid pillow inside. God, I hate that sound. It's so typical of drummers who have no clue that a bass drum...

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

I agree the toms and bass drums all sounded pretty much the same, and probably because they were tuned so ridiculously low. That video was hardly the last word on vintage drum tone.

Re: New Project! Big Fat 70s Luddys

I'm extremely leery about the tape method, but that's just me. I wouldn't do it personally.

As I'm particularly handy, I let Precision Drum take care of stuff like this. I wrapped a snare drum...

There really wasn't much difference in the tone of all those drums.

Re: OMG Say it isn't so . . . Neal Peart has passed

Neil was a private man and it's no wonder he kept his illness secret. I'm not a Rush fan by any means, but he was a great drummer and this is a terrible loss for fans of Rush.

I agree, but on two occasions, I legitimately didn't know I had a gig until I got a phone call and had to rush like a nut to make it to the venue on time. Both times, we started late. My fault, of...

Re: 1960s Rogers 22" or 24" WMP Bass Drum

You don't see many Rogers bass drums in 24." At least I haven't, except for one time, and I owned it. I bought a used Rogers set at Guitar Center years ago for the purpose of flipping. Now, I wish...

Nice, Howie. I know Rogers had that finish available, but never catalogued. I wonder why?

Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

I've been watching that set on Ebay. I think the seller is nuts. $3000? No.
