Default Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Some drums that are super-collectible now (Trixon Telstar and Speedfire for example) are collectible simply because they came from a time when there were a lot of experimental ideas that were as much visual art as they were musical instruments -even though some of the ideas never really made great sound(subjective) -they looked cool(subjective).

I used to lust over the Ludwig Octa-Plus kits of the 70's when I was a kid. I must have run that string of melodic tom toms in my mind a million times! Now, you can't give those things away!

Premier Resonators were pretty crazy, too, btw.
