I always wondered what Trixon kit, Bernie Dwyer, of Freddie and the Dreamers, played, and what the shells were made of. Were these good drums in those days?

The Trixon drum set I have is made of beech & I think many were. They were great drums in those days & still are if you get a vintage set in good condition.

Daves Drum shop in Ottawa . These are built like fine furniture . Odd ball sizes ,but kinda neat to look over up close . Been on display for a few years . Thin Sonor- like shells . Precisely machined hardware .

I've owned one Trixon set, in the late 70's, bought it for the 602 ride cymbal and promptly sold the drums. I'm sorry I didn't try it out. Years later my friend Marty Monson collected them because they were dirt cheap.
