Can someone tell me more about these vintage Swing/Swiny drums?


Hi all,

I recently picked up these vintage snare (14x6.5) and bass drum (27"), among with some other vintage belgium drums from Sonorus, Rex and Marius Renatus.

I've been looking for some back ground info on the Swing of Swiny Trade Mark drums, but couldn't find a thing about them. Anyone who can help me out with some info, age and background on these drums, and perhaps even make an estimation of value?

Could it my any chance be related to early Premier drums? This stamp is on the bass head, but not very clear to read... I also added a picture of the parallel snare mechanism, tension rod heads en clips.
