the drum is probably the old imperial measurement tho i only remember the 12" and 16" being available. i believe premier still supply everplay heads in the old sizes.
good luck

edit
actually theres no longer any mention of imperial heads on the premier website, tho everplay were made by remo so maybe the guys here will have more info. i,m sure someone will get to you soon.

Hello,

We do make drum heads for premier kits, and you are correct they are metric sizes.

Remo makes a 10, 12, 16, and 20.

10" = 9 5/8's

12" = 11 7/8's

16" = 16 5/16's

20 = 19 5/8's

What sizes do you have and what type of drumheads were you looking for?



Have no fear, Remo is here!

I want to buy these drum heads now. There is no way to order these from the Remo store that I can find. How do I order these NOW!?

I found this note on the Remo store site:

"Telephone, postal mail, Fax, and email orders are not accepted."

Any Remo retailer should be able to order them for you.

I have now been to 3 Remo retailers in the past month, and still have no heads.

Somebody has some wires crossed some where. It looks like not only do most Remo reps NOT know they carry these heads, but the retailers look at me like I have leprasy when I explain my situation. Information concerning this - invisible - product is not getting around. When a Remo rep tells the retailer they can't help them, the hunt ends abruptly.

more sadness

hi guys. i'm joe, from Spain. I'm lookin' for those bloody heads. What i really need is 16" = 16 5/16's, now i understand. A normal 16' plain head doesn't fit in, 'cause it's a bit smaller. However, a 11' premier head fit's in a 12' hoop, 'cause the hoop is bigger. That's how i play my rack tom, with a 12' hoop. but there's nothing to do with the floor tom. i just want to get me both heads (batidor and resonant).

same problem here!
if anyone could give us the model numbers of the drumheads we are searching for, please!

hoping for quick response!

(@joevinent, I use the same "technique" for my rack tom! works for me... )
