Extremely rare 1964 Trixon Speedfire drumkit. There are 8x drums in this setup: 3x single headed 13" / 9" / 8" concert toms, 1x 20" floor tom, 1x doubled headed 16" floor tom, 1x extra double headed 13" rack tom, 1x Speedfire bass drum and 1x 14" deluxe wood snare drum. I configured the kit several ways - the 13" rack tom and 16" floor tom provided a smaller 4 piece set up for blues/jazz and with it all assembled, you get the full 'kick your butt' Speedfire experience. And so does the audience.

I took good care of it of this kit. The Speedfire kit (especially the aqua sparkle) is notorious for its color fade. The brilliant turquoise sparkle (in some spots) naturally fades to what I describe as light green. All chrome is in great shape, all bits and pieces are here - nothing missing with nearly everything in its original state - except 1x 16" floor tom, the bracket is missing the tightening screw. Both bass drum skins are solid, no cracks, no splits, no puncture holes. *snare stand holding rack tom is not included.

History of Trixon: Originally hand built by Weimer in his Hamburg, Germany workshop, Trixon drums proved popular enough with jazz drummers in Europe that the company opened a factory in Hamburg/Bramfeld, which produced Trixon drums from 1956 until 1965. Trixon quickly gained popularity with American jazz drummers of the 1950s and had several major artist endorsements, including Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, and Lionel Hampton. There are photos of Ringo Starr of The Beatles playing Trixon drums during the band's early days in Hamburg, before his endorsement of Ludwig drums in 1963.
