Hi. Iīm Erik,
Swedish producer at eatraxx.
Bought this drumset from an old English guy who gave up playing.
Seems to be with all original parts but I donīt have a clue about year,
if itīs vintage or just like 80s - or the exact name of this kit. Would appreciate some info if anyone has it.
Basdrum, 2 toms, one floor tom, 2 bongos, hihat and cymbals.
Says REMO Weather king Pinstripe Bass drum
Thanks!!

Erik

Hi Erik. I think I can tell you quite a lot about those drums, but first please let us see a picture of the whole kit.

The Premier logo is older than 1990 for sure. I don't think it is APK or XPK lines.

It looks like a kit I seen posted on the following vintage drum forum website:

If it is, its the powerhouse line (1975). Check out the link for more info.

Your picture also looks like a kit Ringo used before 1964: http://ringosbeatlekits.com/Premier_Kit.html

Nice to hear from someone from Sweden. Both my grandparents came from Sweden - surname Risberg. I miss them both terribly.

Probably very cool drums. Especially if you didn't pay a lot for them looks like excellent old Premier chrome and low profile die cast hoops. For sure older than XPK. Probably late 60s or 70s. Likely birch with beech reinforcing rings. Only foreseeable problem would be if they are pre-international, and modern heads won't fit properly. Can still get metric heads, but theyare hard to come by.

Hello Erik;
It's been a while since you posted this question and there has not been a definitive answer for you yet. I have been playing Premier drums since I bought my first kit in 1964. The shape of the tuning lugs indicates this kit is of the same vintage. I actually have this wrap on the kit I have been playing since December 2011. I sold my original kit then which was a Premier blue pearl bought as above.
The mahogany wrap was also on the kit Ringo Starr played at the time the Beatles came to fame, until he bought a Ludwig after they had a few hit records! I have just bought my original kit back so the mahogany one will be up for sale shortly. I added drums to the pearl kit in 1968 and the lugs had been changed slightly and had a small point around the rim. In your picture, they are flat as my 1964 originals were. Hope this helps.
Kind regards,
Allan
