They obviously fell into the right hands, because you are restoring these very nicely. Crazy that anyone would paint over that green sparkle wrap, but I guess people go with what's in at certain times. Green is pretty rare.

How do these drums sound? Probably a good rock sound.
Thanks buddy...
yes indeed...a friend had owned the set since 1982, and that's how he bought it.
loving the project and it was fabulous to see the green sparkle underneath all that paint!!
I Will let you know how they sound when the restoration is finished and for sure I will be gigging it too!!
update, another tom with paint nearly off ...

Cool Re: Latest trixon speedfire!!

Thanks for the update!! I`m enjoying this thread...

I`m curious as to how many plies the bass drum has? What wood species did Trixon use on the Speedfires?

Cheers

Hi Grantro...
6ply was regular for the bd shells without reinforcing rings. 3 ply for shells with reinforcing rings. and Trixons only ever used Beech or birch wood for the shells!
