I guess most of us have weird hobbies. Mine is to collect, restore and present vintage drum synthesizers. And yes, I know, I share this hobby with only very few neirds worldwide, but I know they do exist as I get a lot of emails and feedback. This is the reason why I started this blog. And don’t forget to visit my homepage: http://www.simmonsmuseum.com

    Hello, I´m a semi-profesional drummer playing since about 1965 in countless bands and styles. My last Group I was former too had a durance over 20 years untill 2008 (we performed own material in german-language and released 7 CD´s).
    Before I use a ddrum4 today, my monitoring on stage was supported from a SIMMONS TRIXXER; triggered from my acoustic drum-sets. This unit I own it even now and is part of my “private e-drum museum.”
    Now ! I miss a PHOTO of TRIXXER on your beautyfull website – If you want have it I would glad to send you pictures.
    With kindly regards, Martin Herrmann, D-Oberbillig/Germany, an der Schlicht 13

    Hallo Wolfgang !

    Vielleicht suchst Du es ja.

      Sehr nett von Dir! Das steht schon fast ein ganzes Jahr im Ebay. Einerseits ist der Preis sportlich hoch, andererseits funktioniert dieses Pedal ausschliesslich am SDX und an keinem anderen E-Drum dieser Welt. Und ich habe schon 2 von denen 😛

    Hello Wolfgang,
    I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog about the beautiful vintage Simmons Drums. . . so much so that you inspired me to make my own drum pads based upon the original SDS-V design. The drums have some of my own modifications. I’ve posted a blog about it and gave you and your Simmonsmuseum’s Blog a plug and a link. I thought you might be interested in checking out my post. Thanks again for your wonderful blog! Here’s the link: http://jeffjewkes.weebly.com/1/post/2011/09/my-simmons-drum-inspiration.html

    I have a SDS-6 that I purchased new in the late 70’s that isn’t fully working. I wondered if you would know where I could get a schematic for it.
