Important Information on TRIXON USA:
Since spring 2008 on Ebay America appear newly manufactured drums under the name Trixon. These drums have nothing to do with our good old vintage Trixon drums. All parts come from actual production made in China. They are also sold under the name of Platin and Dimavery. It is only used the old badge and the lettering. Jim Laabs (initiator) isn't authorized to use the name Trixon neither by me nor the successor of the company Trixon in Germany
Unfortunately there is no communication to me by Mr. Laabs!

There are also new drums under the name Trixon in the UK, also manufactured in Far East. But they don't use the logo, badge and the history of the real Trixon brand.
Distributor is ABC Music.

Wichtige Hinweise zu TRIXON USA: 
Seit Frühjahr 2008 tauchen auf Ebay-Amerika neu gefertigte Schlagzeuge unter dem Namen Trixon auf. Diese Schlagzeuge haben nichts mit unseren guten alten Trixon-Schlagzeugen zu tun. Alle Teile stammen aus aktueller Produktion aus China. Diese Trommeln werden u. a. auch unter dem Namen Platin und Dimavery angeboten. Es wird lediglich das alte Badge und der Schriftzug verwendet. Initiator Jim Laabs ist weder von mir noch vom Nachfolger der Firma Trixon in Deutschland autorisiert, den Namen Trixon zu verwenden! Leider war eine Kontaktaufnahme zu Laabs nicht erfolgreich.

Seit einiger Zeit gibt es auch in England Schlagzeuge, die unter dem Namen Trixon von ABC Music vertrieben werden. Aber auch diese stammen komplett aus fernöstlicher Produktion. Wenigstens wird nicht das originale Badge und Logo verwendet, und auch nicht Bezug auf die Historie der Firma Trixon genommen. 

Let's start the new year with some Beat Groups came of New Zealand. Roger Watkins sent me the photos, many thanks!


Here are some photos of Anita Ekberg from 1959 - hope you get crazy like I do. Many thanks to Frank from Italy for sending me the photos!!!
