Can one really get the fat, warm tone of a maple shell out of an acrylic shell? The answer now is unequivocally, yes! With Trixon Acrylic Snares you can have that arena-rock sound without the arena-rock prices.
Trixon Acrylic Snares are chemically welded instead of the older method of “tabbing” the seams. This creates a uniform area for vibration characteristics and a seam that is as strong as solid acrylic. A 45 degree bearing edge is also a standard feature. The acrylic itself is created using lower amounts of petroleum and high amounts of a patent-pending renewable “green” acrylic. This allows us to not only reduce the carbon footprint of acrylic drums but also not be enslaved to the constant rise and fall of petroleum.
Our shell hardware uses Low Mass Multi-Point Cylinder Lug Technology™. This technology allows for a single cylinder lug attached to the absolute middle of the drum shell to be anchored into the shell by multiple attachment points. The natural physics of our low mass cylinders direct tensioned-energy equally into the multiple mounting points on the lug. The arrangement of this hardware in relation to the shell minimizes the amount of metal-through-wood contact and maximizes sound producing area. Multiple point anchors assure equal drum head tension throughout the snare.
Trixon lugs, hoops and tension rods are CNC designed and created with our Infinite Tuning Technology™. The ability to tune the drum head to an almost infinitely desire of tension without fear of stripping the rods allows the players a greater range and the ability to tune for different sounds. Die cast copper hoops are spun to exact specifications before being TIG welded and laser cut for the tension rods. Die cast hoops resonate along the drum shell and increase sharpness, clarity and overtones.
Most importantly for our fans and players of Trixon Snares is our quality control process. We use X-Ray technology and random selection to ensure that every drum we produce is of the highest quality. We pride ourselves in being able to produce drums and incredible quality for players on honest budgets.
