    The return of the famous "egg bassdrum" which was produced in the 50s and 60s by Trixon (Germany). The so-called "egg set" consists of the bassdrum and 10", 12" and 14" toms plus a 14" snare. Made from birch, the kit is available in a "White Peral" foil finish. Skins: Remo "Ambassador".

    Again available from St-Drums, Germany:

        Yes it does. I never liked the look of these. I wonder how hard it is to tune?

              I don't know, but I'm trying to imagine the chicken that came from that egg.

                  I remember reading a review in md about the original kit and some drummers loved it because they could get a few different bass drum sounds outta it due to the unusual shape. But yeah, finding heads were a problem.

                      OMG!!!!! I thought it was a joke. Who would make something like that. Please tell me it's a joke.

                        No joke. Really. It was quite popular in the 50s and 60s. The company is selling quite a few of these, I understand. I have no idea what the difference in sound might be. Certainly looks weird (and, I agree, it could've been a Photoshop job).

                          This is the original.






                          (from my never published book)
                          The company was founded in the 1960s by the German designer Karl-Heinz Weimer. The Luxus kit with small top and large bottomhead (!) or the Speedfire with an egg-shaped bass drum (!!) were available in the early 1960s. On the egg-shaped bass drum even two bass drumpedals could be mounted. There was also a Telstar drum kit with conical shells. Trixon also was available in the USA under the brandname Vox. And Buddy Rich endorsed Trixon drums for a while. In the late 1960s Trixon desided to setup a plant in Ireland, but the Ludwig ‘Beatles’ invasion was yet there and the conical kit wasn't succesful. The brand retired in the 1970s.
