Premier Mayfair console set

Last week we took delivery of an early 1930s Premier Mayfair console kit in red glitter. 28″ bass drum mounted in a Premier console on wheels, with two toms, traps table and cymbal arms. Yesterday We happily delivered this beautiful piece of English drum history to its new home, a recording studio in England where it will be used on some upcoming film scores I’m told. So great to know that even 80 years after it was built, it’s still being used to make music rather than sitting on a shelf in a museum gathering dust. I love to see this old classics being played and can’t wait to hear the results in time. As we set it up, we wondered amount ourselves who the kit may have belonged to back in its day and what sort of gigging history it might have….
