Representing the Mahogany Duroplastic crowd. There's a little bit of Ludwig and Gretsch thrown in too.

those premiers look AMAZING!! Especially the WMP set. Those look like Pete Best has just bought them, and is about to take them to Hamburg to play with some flunky group called The Beatles (they'll never make it).

Davidh,

The Black Elite looks classy! A Black Premier (in 20, 12, 14) is still on my List...

Regards,
Lars

Love the Modern Classics. Are these still available (in the US) and what price did you pay? Sweet!

Cost me about 2000 / $3000 including the snare - a LOT.
Probably none left in the US - one place in the UK www.andertons.co.uk seem to have the remaining sets and would probably ship and take off the 20% UK sales tax

Premier stopped all this custom manufacture this summer so these great drums were a strictly limited run
