Those are SWEET. I like the custom autographed bass head, nice touch. I'd love to have one of those kits. Ian is a fav of mine. Wow it's been almost 40 years since Machine Head came out??? I'm gettin old LOL. I last saw Deep Purple back in 05 and they still put on a great show. Mountain was the opener. Took my boys and a few of their freinds. Good time.

Any idea what those kits are going for?? Eye Ball

Saw DP in '72 or '73 for the first time. I've always been a fan of Paice. I remember him playing Ludwig though... not any longer?

Yes right here!!! Saw DP in 1974 when i was 14 years old in L.A.,ca.To me Ian is the best R&R drummer till this day.The DP album "Made In Japan" 1972 is the best live album ever..Ian if i recall right he went to Pearl drums is 1990..He was using them in 1997 or 8 when i got to meet him after a show we sat and talk drums,music and i even showed him one of the O.C.D.P. snare drums that i made it was a 6.5x14 20 ply maple shell with 4 holes on the side wrapped in purple sparkle.He liked the drum so i give it to him. I went the next night to Arco in sac.ca he was using the snare drum that night.He give me a pair of stixs and signed drum head back stage passes for the show up in sac.ca the next night.....Mikey

They were out here on that tour as well... Only time I saw them live..
I think the kits start at around 5000.00 British pounds... whatever that translates to..

That's about $7.900 US give or take a few bucks. Would be cool to own one of those kits. Come on lotto!!! LOL

Yep DP was a great show and also the first time I saw them live. I can't remember for sure but think Ian played Pearl then. And yes Ludwig long ago.

Mikey that's cool you met Ian and built him a snare also!! Very lucky man you are. Must have been a great time too~!

Attention: these kits are designed for a lefty ...

Personally I don't give such signature kits any chances on the market. The Keith Moon 'Pics of Lilly' replica sets were a flop, if I'm right (selling prices on ebay never reached the target price).

I love Paicy too and I'm a fellow lefty! Lovely kits but Ralfs right - they don't sell very well because they are so expensive. I think in reality they end up going to rich rock collectors and the like.

With only 12 kits being made (4 kits in each of 3 colors black, silver sparkle and WMP) It'll be interesting to see. I'll take mine in WMP.

Ralf how long ago were the POL kits offered? I never heard about those. Were they exact replicas of the original kit? Those sound cool. Anyone have any info on them?

Ralf may know more, but the POL kits were pretty recent I seem to recall - last five-10 years? They were really nice-looking but just cost too much. I recall a drum shop over here trying to shift one on ebay for ages. They were true to spec with the three, 14" toms (or was it four!) and the design was great.

@brody,

are you talking about this one?
http://www.ebay.de/itm/310380998126?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

This ad is of an authorized Premier dealer in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

The ad says that the reissue of the original POL set was called "Spirit of Lily" and Premier obviously made them a short time before the British manufacturing stopped and the factory in England was closed. (I actually donīt know when that happened. Sorry, but Iīm no Premier expert!)
They exactly checked the original kit to reproduce it as close to the first issue as possible. It was a limited edition, but the ad tells nothing about the number of manufactured sets.
Youīre right, 3 8" x 14" rack toms, two 16" x 16" floors, two 14" x 22" bassdrums and a 5,5" steel-shell snare.
They were only available for a period of 14 months, each month as a tribute to the 14 years lasting cooperation between Premier and Keith Moon.
They were sold for 7.500,- Euros, and are now on for 4.900,- Euros bin - Ralf, youīre right!

Maybe some Premier-"maniacs" or -experts know a bit more about these kits?

Thanks Brody. I took a quick look on the net and looks like in 2006 Premier offered 200 sets over a 14 month timeframe. Spirit of Lilly was what the reissues were called. Wonder if they made all 200 kits? Price looked about the same (a tad less) than the Paice kit.

OK Who freaks....

1)How did the POL kit gets it's name?


2) how did The Who get their name?


Back on track.......

During my MASSIVE research on Premier recently,I read that Ian Paice was looking for a Premier 1960's-1970's 250s pedal in the last year or so,and I also read that That was Moonie's fav pedal,albeit with a Ludwig wooden beater!

Carry on lads and lasses...

Saw DP for the first time in 1968 at Creams farewell tour in LA DP opened for Cream and they tore the house down, it was their very first US show... but Cream was not intininated they played for over 1hour 40 min and it was unreal .. always been a deep purple fan since and i have seen all the lineups except the burn version Mark @ being my fav but the original lineup is hard to beat Rod Evans was a great front man and Richie Blackmore just tore it up back then..

I am so glad others on this forum put Ian Paice high on their list of favorites.So-will someone show me how to play the intro to "Pictures of Home"?His 1972 solo song"The Mule",which is on Y0utube,is the benchmark technicians drum solo,IMHO.Saw him when they toured "The House of Blue Light"album.RB spent more time backstage than onstage.
3 drummers most responsible for my future professional career,inspirationally-Ian Paice,Steven Jo Bladd of J.Geils Band,and my Grandfather Burger Kin

Absolutely love Ian Paice. He has some seriously quick hands and feet. Saw DP live in 1996 (with Steve Morse) when I was 16. One of the best rock drummers ever.

OK, Blair...

Although Iīm not a Who freak, Iīll try my best:

1) In 1967 Keith Moon and Premier were working on a special kit, and Moon was the leading force in design.
The kit got itīs name from the same titled song by The Who. Pete Townsend wrote this song because he was inspired by a pin up postcard of actress Lily Bayliss that he had seen in his girlfriendīs place.

2) In 1964, the bandīs name was "The Detours", and they changed their name to "The Who", taking the suggestion of Townshend's roommate Richard Barnes.

As said, I donīt know if these facts are historical correct - but I am eager to learn more!

OK.....I have heard different stories on the 2 questions........


no. 1) Moonie used to have lots of wank pics of girls on his bedroom wall....with a lot of them a certain girl named "Lily"...hence the title..

N0 2.)....The Who used to be called The High Numbers..
and when this guy would announce them on stage,he would go...
Here they are!...The High Numbers!...
then go..The Who?

After countless times of him doing that,the took the name The Who!


Sort of like when The Guess Who used to be called Guess Who?

Saw Deep Purple last month.

Very good show. Paice had a kit similar to those illustrated. No riser btw. The hihat looked even higher than illustrated. He was reaching up to it.

His fluidity and economy of motion were really impressive.

He is a terrific drummer.

The Deep Purp repertoire leaves me with mixed feelings--astonishing musicianship on the front line and drums, relatively dull bass parts and lyrics that seem juvenile beside the playing. Which is okay, unless the lyrics really really stink--I let them slide and enjoy the show.

Blair: I think I read somewhere that the 250 was Cozy Powell's favorite pedal too...Now if Ian is looking for that one Ill contact my friend Paolo Sburlati whos a very close friend of Ian to send him the pedal as a gift...Thanks for the tip!
