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

Heh...I dunno....I love the odd Trixon concept drums....I love modern art and those drums are what I see as utilitarian modern art. They can be viewed as a sculpture or played as an instrument. Okay with me if they bring back some of those old kits mainly because the originals are almost impossible to find. Plus, the originals are still more...well...original than any reproduction will ever be so the repros are no threat to that. Same with all the old drums we loved. They can try to revive old ideas but they can't seem to come up with any new ideas that were as forward-thinking (hopeful?) as some of these old concept drums were. They were supposed to be futuristic, but that future is now the past. Everything seems to have been figured out and settled upon, now. Traditional drums, as we know them, now, are here to stay. But long live the futurists, too. Without at least some forward thinking, our traditional drum design would still be hollow logs and rocks.
