Popular among jazz drummers across Europe, Trixon drums became real innovators at a time when most drums were very similar in their looks and sounds. Their thin, three-ply shells metric sized gave a really lovely, resonant sound and came in the standard glitters and pearls of that era. The mounting sockets were unlike anything else on the market, with lovely attention to detail in the design of the tension screws and kick drum rods engraved with the Trixon logo.
