Re: Premier vintage 60s/70s

For what its worth - Premier did not make metric drums - they were simply 'pre-international standard sized'

Re: Please help identify vintage Premier

No such thing as 'metric' drums, it's simply a pre-international size 11 7/8" tom

Re: Please help identify vintage Premier

Possibly late 60's/ early 70's. The inside of the shells will easily tell the wood type. The 11 7/8" rack tom is definitely Birch though.

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.
