Default Trixon Speedfire set FOR SALE

SOLD: Drum set Trixon speedfire whith the original calf skin still on it !
What you see is what you get ! The foto's speak for themselves.
Everything still in the original wooden boxes.
Just one thing is broken: the elbow bracket of the small Tom . ( see foto's )but it is being fixed over the years.

Our asking price is 1200€+ transport .

This is a real collectors item so give a realistic offer please.
Are not restoraters, so the drum is sold as-is. At request you can test it in Belgium, but for delivery by ourselves we want a deposit a minimum of fuel both ways of driving .

We speak English, Nederlands , franÁais and Deutsch

We are living in Belgium. Considering the high risk and cost of shipping and insuring this kit, we are prepared to deliver it to your doorstep to a reasonable distance from Belgium at the price of diesel

More photos at request, please contact me in PM

Speedfire lasted from 1956 to 1970 and even though a host of international drummers including (and not limited to): Alan Ganley, Phil Seamen, Don Storer, Clem Cattini, Tony Newman, Charlie Watts, Dave Clark, Tony Newman, Moonie, Brian Bennett, Pete York, Clyde Stubblefield, John Starks, Sam Woodyard, Barrett Deems and Buddy Rich played Luxus sets; you’d be justified in asking the question as to who actually played the elliptical set. As I said the idea came from Lionel Hampton and he’s photographed playing a set live so it’s a good each way bet his drummers Alan Dawson and Curley Hammer did too. Otherwise Kenny Clarke and Bill Haley’s drummer Dave Holly used them along with a whole bunch of European show drummers .
Even Ringo Starr played at the Trixon when he was young .
