Nice, Where and when did it come from?
Never heard of the Beverley.

Beverley as pointed out above were British. Same shells as Premier, but different hardware. The Beverley 21 was manufactured as a rival to the Ludwig Supra I think.
Tama Superstar, 22, 22, 16, 14, 13 Desert Burst
Premier Genista, 22, 16, 13, 12 Black Lacquer
Premier Genista, 20, 14, 10 and snare Black Lacquer
Premier Resonator 22, 16, 14, 13 poly creme/black
Zickos 22, 16, 14, 13, clear acrylic and snare

As I understand it, the Beverley Cosmic 21 (21 because it costed 21£, they say) was made by Premier on 30´s tooling but in alu - as stated above in order to compete with/copy Ludwigs Supraphonic - hence the 10 lugs and the general design, quite different from HiFi´s and 2000´s.

Later, it also came in a 6½" version (the 8120), and Premier marketed their own versions, the 35 and 36 (5 and 6½" respectively).

In the last couple of months, I have bought myself a Cosmic 21, a 35 (because the Cosmic was a very much worn example, but sounds sweet) and a 36. All extremely pleasing snares to my ears!

A cheaper way to (almost the) the sound of a Supra.
