Trixon Solist Elite Wood Shell with Die Cast Hoops 14″x6.5″ – Natural Color
Die Cast Hoops 14 by 6.5″ Natural Finish
Trixon snare shells are made out of six-ply Eastern Yellow Birch Wood. Eastern Yellow Birch is a domestically grown, straight and close-grained texture. It has a density of 44lb per 3′ and is a popular wood for high-end cabinet making, flooring and furniture.
Each shell layer is pure Eastern Yellow Birch. The layers are laminated using high PSI steam and low glue volume for a melodic and rich sound. Trixon Yellow Birch Shells feature a a trademark secret blend of glue that reduces the volume needed in it’s laminate shells therefore increasing the amount of wood available for producing sound.
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 hoops are molded to exact specifications before being TIG welded, chromed 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.
