Re: Another Premiere snare ID question.

Trilok is correct it's a 1005 steel snare with non-standars hoops. The badge puts it at 1987-1994.

Re: Question about 1960s Premier paint on bass drum hoops.

Re: Giving my Premier 1005 a good Bath and Polish !!

I was thinking the same thing, the 1005's were all Olympic badged till '78-ish I thought. Regardless looks in great condition.

Cabria rods will be identical
