Re: Another Premier question: date stamps/SN

Hi! I've had quite a few vintage Premier kits over the years but personally never seen an ink stamp! As for the accuracy of the dates, I'm not sure. I know that certainly when they had parts to use...

Re: Premier vintage 60s/70s

Hi! Just chipping in as a Premier fan, and I can't resist a Prem thread on here! I'll echo what others have said about avoiding pre-international - only because of the head issue. New ones are still...

Hi all.

Re: Premier Olympic Small Hardware

That's useful to know! I never heard of Pozi until read your reply Mark! Guess I must have just got lucky, or had a 'Pozi-like' Philips knocking around!

Re: Premier Olympic Snare Drum Questions

I've seen varying ones on different drums! If you remove the rods from one of the heads and measure the length of the thread on it, then you'll know the length of thread you need on your standard...

Re: Premier Olympic Small Hardware

Hi! I've encountered numerous Phillips-style screws when removing hardware from Premier drums over the years. I had the same problem, but found that through trying different Philips screwdrivers I...

Re: Premier Olympic Snare Drum Questions

Like others have said, very underrated drums these, and they do sound great.

On the subject of rods, Premier mixed and matched a lot of parts in the factory, so it wouldn't be beyond the realms...

Re: Slingerland snare project -- tips??

Good work! Really nice drum too - always strikes me as quite a contemporary fade design considering its age too.

Re: Please help identify vintage Premier

Nice kit! 14" floor toms from this era are particularly sought after too, so that'll add some extra value to it.

Re: 80's Premier 14x4 snare ID

It looks to be the one you've just posted above and is almost certainly 90s. The steel shell's a mystery though!

Re: Vintage premier speedboat lugs

Yes, Soundwaves had the speedboat lugs as did the earlier APK and XPK, before they went with the single, double-ended tension lugs. I've a few Premier parts but no spare washers I'm afraid. There's...

Re: 80's Premier 14x4 snare ID

The badge looks pretty modern too - similar to the 90s ones they used on the Genistas, which were thick, with rounded edges.

Re: 80's Premier 14x4 snare ID

Interesting snare. Mike Ellis is your man to find out exactly what model it is. Think he's on here, but you can reach him at Blenheim Drums also. He'll likely have any parts you may need too.

Premier Tom ID

Hi all. Bagged this 14" Premier tom recently on E-bay and was just wondering what model it is and what type of wood it is?

The lugs look like Royale, but the Royales I've owned in the past had the...

Re: 1979 Tama Superstars in Desert Burst

Cheers Sean. I've never actually played both bass drums at the same time, as I'm a double pedal guy, however, the bass drum sounds fantastic - great punch but warmth too.
