Trixon 20/14/16/5x14 Drum Set - Telstar Champagne Sparkle NOS

Here we have a very rare Trixon Telstar kit from the sixties in Champagne Sparkle. This set is New Old Stock, unplayed, with original heads. This kit is particularly rare because of the conical snare drum. Usually these kits came with a standard snare. The sizes are: (depth then batter then resonant head) 16x20x16/16x16x14/8x14x13/5x14x13". We would recommend that someone add this to their collection. Everything is original and in working order. The snare mechanism has a tiny piece of plastic broken off where the tightener is, but it still works well. This set has a fair amount of the dark "age spots" that we often see on old sparkle finishes. The strainer on this snare is the version with plastic parts. Those parts are brittle and replacements are not available. The snare is best to leave as a display item. One of the wing nuts on the floor tom legs is also not original, and the bottom hoop has some rust. See video HERE.

Steve's comments:

 

This is an amazing find. This is one of 4 New Old Stock Trixon sets that we have. These drum sets come from a music store that I first visited over 20 years ago. At that time, these sets had already been sitting there unsold for 30 years. These 4 Trixon sets are New Old Stock. I had wanted to purchase these sets and some other drums when I visited, but wasn't able to. We have now been able to acquire these sets and some other instruments. The drums you see here have been unsold since they were delivered new over 50 years ago. Based on the colors and configurations, I have a theory as to how this delear may have come to have 4 different sets all at the same time: Back in the 60s and into the 70s the annual NAMM music trade show used to be held in Chicago in the summer. My guess is that these sets were on display at the show, and that this local dealer bought the entire Trixon booth. That practice is not unusual and I have done it myself in the past. It allows you to have a wide variety of a manufacturers product on hand, and there are often extra discounts, so why not!

Anyhow, we acquired these kits recently. Since they sat for 50 years they needed cleaning, but we have now finished the work.

Very cool kit here that is NEW OLD Stock from a local music store here in Illinois that closed many years ago. This kit has never been played!
