Snare of the day – Premier 35

Today’s featured snare drum is a Premier 35 circa early 1980’s.

The drum features a 14×5.5″ beaded chrome over alluminium shell. Triple flange hoops replace the die cast hoops of the 70’s, and square head tension rods replace the slot head that Premier were famous for. Featuring 10 lugs, this drum is pretty much the English equivalent of a Ludwig supraphonic 400 at a fraction of the price. The drum responds well at all tunings.

Today I stripped and cleaned the snare, leaving the original Everplay resonant head on but fitting it with a new Evans 360 G1 coated.

Discounted by 10% for one day only here.
