Hello....Goto www.nickhopkindrums.com ask for nick over in the UK he will have the rods you need. The wires for the royal ace are easy to make. Ive made up quite a few. If you have the original plates for the snare its an easy fix. If you don't have wires at all then its a case of making em from scratch. Also nick sometimes has the royal ace wires in stock...........sean

Sean's right, Nick is a good source. Some other ideas include:

- Blair Holden, he's on here. Track him down, he has lots of Premier stuff.

- Contract/join Premier drum groups on Facebook, I belong to three of them, GREAT resource for all things Premier.

- Try Tristan at https://www.drum-attic.co.uk/

Cheers.

Blair's in the US. I've bought from him, good guy. Here's his email address. I'm sure he won't mind you contacting him directly.
