Premier ‘Kenny Clare’ Resonator

Premier 'Kenny Clare' Resonator

Early 70’s Premier ‘Kenny Clare’ Resonator- 22,13,16 in Polychromatic Red.
The Resonator drums were the brainchild of the late Alan Gilby who had experimented putting ‘liners’ in Ludwig drums for his friend Kenny Clare. This led to production by Premier in the early 70’s, the liners providing a resonant chamber within the drum itself, holding itself in place. These drums became one of Premier top line kits in the late 70’s and production continued through the 80’s, with some cosmetic changes.
These earlier drums feature disappearing bass drum spurs and dampers which pierce the liner, features that were later refined. A lovely sounding vintage classic.
