Question Premier Resonator black shadow ?

I bought this drum kit wich is supposed to be a Premier Resonator.

It only as the Premier badge. Not the Resonator under . Probably some do , some dont ... I think the first ones didn't have it ... wich would mean it's a 1983 ( the year they came out ) or arround that.

Could you guys help me identify it please ?

For sale 1000 Canadian 450 747 0186

Why is that shell black??? Most all of the resonator shells were just wood. I don't get it ...

Can you tell the year ??? It looks like early 80's to me .... ?!

And why it doesn't say '' Resonator '' underneath the badge ?? Weird ...

83-86 I'd say look like an early one 83/84. I had one just like it I just trade it on the other day. Heres a pic.

Thanks man ! I'm thinking of a power stroke 3 for the bass drum and probably Evans G2 for the tom ! What did you put on yours ?

Powerstroke bass is a good call, actually coated ambs work really well on the toms.
