Hello,

all the best to all of you out there, too.

Conc. the Trixon kit: I'll NEVER understand how someone can play the 'rack toms' vice versa (like Billy Cobham and others).
Perhaps, because I'm just an amateur ... - ... or: That's WHY I'm still an amateur. :-)

Nevertheless, I guess it's fun to play and listen to the sound being unfamiliar if I would play the toms from left to right on this kit and the pitch rises ...
falling down to the boooom of the floor tom.

Ralf

Hi Ralf,
yes, wishing you and all your family are safe at these unprecedented times!!
Trixon did them like that due to the balance and also to enable the hi-hat to be used on the larger sized end..
yes it's a great kit to play and a very rare one too so I'm very pleased to finally add this model to my collection...
stay safe
