Did it melt?So Vox is a division of Korg and they re-introduced the Telstar drumset from the 60s (not a full-blown replica of the original, just mainly the bass drum). I SO need this kit for the Devo band.
But they said they may ship in three months. So it’s true. NAMM stands for “Not Available, Maybe May”

Steve Maxwell acquired some new old stock Trixon drums a while back and he posted a video about them. I think he said that this shape was actually to enable a second bass drum pedal to be attached (before double pedals existed).With the frequent postings about bass drum beater striking point, dead center etc, I also wonder about the sound and tuning.
I’m sure this was said back in the 60s . And I think that was the point. This is the same company that made the conical drums too. I’m surprised they didn’t debut those. At least those didn’t require special heads!If it was an improvement on "round sound", everyone would do it. Honestly, it just looks like a drunk fat man sat on it. Gimmicky looking.
And, as far as those heads--they look hard as heck to tune, yeah?I’m sure this was said back in the 60s . And I think that was the point. This is the same company that made the conical drums too. I’m surprised they didn’t debut those. At least those didn’t require special heads!
The early Trixon sets did - so you would get different tones depending on where the pedals were placed. Not sure of the wood, I'm sure it's the usual mystery woods used in alot of kits. Considering that some people are selling actual Trixon kits from the 60s in the $3000+ range, and this new one lists for $1799 (so hopefully street price will be much lower), I'm sure it's more novelty factor than sonic sensation.Did they not have some type of board in the kick to have two chambers?
