Default Info on these Premiers?

just picked up these ultra-clean drums, not sure of the year, or series. Badges say Made in England, so I know they're not too recent. I suspect APK, but I need a Premier aficionado's help:



Fusion sizes with a 22" kick.

Also, what's that finish called?

And just for fun, what are they worth? They're almost mint.

Thanks,

Bermuda

Finish is I believe Sunburst Lacquer and I think those are Genista's. Both are educated guesses, but I'm more into American made. I'll let someone else pipe in on value, I'm a cheapskate.

Wrong lugs for a Genista. I'm looking at my cats to see what that finish is called.

That tom mount came in the mid 1990's I think, but they still had the long tom tension lugs then, so I'm guessing late 1990's if still made in England? Nice finish though!

Hi Kevaruka!

Thanks for resurrecting this thread to provide the name of the finish. Please post pictures of your kit after you receive them!
