Hi all.
Interesting lots:

2. An original end 50's TACTON kit - extremely rare set in good condition. This model is just after LEFIMA factory nationalization -- long before moving to TROWA plant.

3. Concert TACTON snare - beg 70's ---after join to TROWA (but I doubt that it's original - I sure that shell and strainer were changed by owner).

George.
Another part of the story is poorly covered in the press. The former Lefima factory from the late 50s to the early 70s produced drum sets under the Tacton brand. The logo was made on a black background in an oval. In later models of drums there were peculiar lags.Tacton snare drum, unfortunately without heads. Other than that, this drum is complete with eight tensioners. The wooden shell has a diameter of 34.2 cm and the height is 12.5 cm. The inner damper and the snares are present and the snare mechanism is very refined. stamped metal drum rims.
