    Well I guess it makes sense for new 2020 drums. Maybe they should stick to guitars, amps and organs. 9EB9CF4C-E0A7-4E9B-82AB-9DEB5730426E.jpeg

    This is a ‘60s design. Goofy, but novelty counts for a lot in certain circumstances.

    They should offer a more psychedelic finish. The silver alligator skin finish does these no favors.

    These are a ripoff of Trixon drums, who offered lots of whacky shapes. I’m not sure this Vox kick drum looks like this on the inside, but this is the inside of the Trixon version. So there was arguably a useful reason for the shape...two different chambers, two different pedals, two different kick sounds.. [​IMG]

    Trixon and Vox worked together back in '67.
    Looks like a re-issue.

    Why would Vox stick with guitars amps and organs?

    Gretsch has drums. Marshall has Natal. Remember Fender/Rogers/Rhodes? Gibson just sold Slingerland in 2019.

    It is a free for all I tell ya. hah.

    This is the image I tried to post last night of the interior of these bass drums. Not sure why the image didn't post (the only difference is I'm now using a laptop and last night I was using an iPad.)

    Anyway, you can see from this image, this design offers the possibility of getting two distinct bass drum sounds out of one drum if you were to attach a pedal to each chamber.

    Theoretically. I don’t know how well it works. But with the amount of cork sniffing that goes on in the world of tone chasing, I don’t think it’s implausible. I’ll bet the difference between the two chambers is more noticeable than the difference between 9s and 11s on a guitar.
