Please come with us to the Vintage Drum Shows we visited in the past!

After 2008 and 2012 in 2014 we were the third time in England to enjoy the UK NDF in Birmingham. 
It was a great show with great drums and kindest drum guys.

The Trixon stall at the show!                                                          And some impressions of the exhibition!

Martin, Dave Prince and Ingo                                                      After the show in Birmingham we spent two days in Liverpool

And we visited Dave Prince in London. Great pleasure to see his Drum Collection - most Trixon drums.

Peter came from England to visit this show. It was a pleasure to talk with him about Trixon!

3 men in a black car ... and a lot of drums ... 250 miles to drive!
See Marcos legs - you don't see the snare in a case under his feet. 

Don't buy more than you can put in the car! No problem - but you can guess how many Trixon stuff is in the back of the car ...

<<< Jim Chapin gave us a few lessons 
       of snare drumming.
       I hope Udo (sitting left) had all understand?!

Friday night: Unpack all the stuff out of the car and building up the exhibition
 and drinking some beer! Cheers Martin!
