Royal Rib Shell – 14 by 3.5″
Trixon steel shell drums feature exclusive sheet metal with a maximum thickness at the top rim that graduates into a slightly thinner thickness at the bottom rim. Our steel drums start off as continuous pieces of sheet metal and are laser cut and machine welded. After the shells are formed and checked for continuous horizontal thickness they are electroplated with chromium to seal out moisture and solidify the sound.
Along the horizontal center of the piccolo Trixon uses its Royal Rib™ which provides maximum strength to the shell mass while minimizing negative back-draft resonance.
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. Triple-flanged hoops are hardened internally before being TIG welded, chromed and laser cut for the tension rods.
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.
