Default How to Play Red Hot

The translation for this nice Trixon kit on Reverb is interesting as it gives the impression these drums will produce a red hot result. Given what the Beatles were getting done in Hamburg in that era, it would be no surprise. Who knows but maybe Best or Starr stomped on them once or twice?

The was configurated in Hamburg between 1960-63 (as the
"Luxury" 0/200 between 1950 - 1970 in the catalogue).

It is a model in the so-called "style mix" produced.
with built-in components from 2 eras! Medium bass drum TG2 with
already inch boiler sizes. All boilers with new, otherwise metric skins,
which have never been played on before! All drums with TRIXON-badges. It is
all around the original finish in "gold-croco". The foils are
nor those from the delivery and therefore show age-related traces of use.
The original tensioning screws/tyres, feet, fittings incl. all shock absorbers
of the BD or all drums are present. Drum boiler of the snare, TT + FT with
"tear-drop" holding bases, BD with the later angular clamping brackets
and sash clamping screws (type C). The clamping tires were all mounted in a
German specialist company new chrome plated! Apart from the age-related natural
optical signs of age no rust on the remaining metal parts. The

Wow that's a cool kit and extremely rare to find in any kind of good condition. The "crocodile" finishes were extremely fragile. Parts of the lugs were plastic and broke down no matter how well they were taken care of....just chemically degraded.

I am still holding out for that mint aqua sparkle conical kit to appear! The odds of that? Oh, about a trillion to one!

Thanks for posting this! Always cool t see the real deal!
