Very interesting story: On the right picture send to me by Wolfgang you see a poster with "Emile Ford & The Checkmates". Drummer of the Checkmates was (and still is) Ray Du Val, a friend of Peter Isbell (you know, the owner of the fantastic drums seen on the drumset site) and plays a red pearl Trixon Luxus kit. He remembers playing at the Starclub with Emile Ford, and says it was in 1960/61.

Dank an Wolfgang Seidel, der mir viele dieser Fotos eingescannt und geschickt hat!

Thanks to Wolfgang Seidel who scanned many of these images and sent them to me!
He says, that the books "the beatage" and "starclub" are very interesting photo books with also worth reading textes. A tip for the sixties beat and R&B fan.

Dank an Piet Muys, der mir viele weitere Fotos eingescannt und geschickt hat!

Thanks to Piet Muys who scanned many images and sent them to me!
You want to read more about Indo-Instro-Rockbands go to his homepage!
says: "As you now in the early 60s many Indo rock bands played in the German clubs and bars, before the English beat bands take over their place.
 One important band The Black Dynamites also used Trixon. First all Indo-rock bands used German Höfner guitars, before the Fender Jazzmasters became the status symbol for Indo-rock."

Do you know further drummers playing on Trixon ? Please mail me!!
