Since the beginning Trixon also built Vibraphones. Until the mid 50s they have 3 different models: Tone-Master, Tone-Revue and the little Tone-Piccolette. Later only the Tone-Master was built.
3 octaves f - F",  A=880Hz
The older ones have all sound sheets in the same width (4 cm / 1 1/2inch), so the vibes are not so big over all. Later, I guess in the late 50's, the first octave has bigger sheets (5 cm / 2inch).

These both were made in the second half of the 50s.

The models since the mid 60s have the extraordinary croco finish on the sides. Here a photo in the factory.
