Vintage 1960’s Premier “55” Outfit Drum Kit Black Diamond Pearl

These drums are in excellent condition. We have dismantled, cleaned and polished each drum and the chrome to the best of our ability.

Please see below for more details on each drum.

The 12×8 Tom (pre-int size)

The 12” tom is in excellent condition. The chrome has cleaned up excellent. The lugs are in excellent condition with very little pitting. The hoops are in excellent condition with also very little pitting. The drum is fitted with a Vintage Coated Ambassador on the batter and an unbranded black head on the Resonant side. The wrap is in excellent condition with a few very light scratches. This is also fitted with the original damper & original tom holder. Overall the condition is really good for a 50 year old drum.

The 16×20 Floor Tom (Rare Size)

The 16” floor tom is in excellent condition. It is a very rare size. The chrome has cleaned up excellent. The lugs are in excellent condition with very little pitting. The hoops are in excellent condition with also very little pitting. The drum is fitted with a Ambassador on the batter and the original Everplay head on the Resonant side. The wrap is in good condition with a few very light scratches, the seam on the has come away from the drum as some point but has been stuck back on (see photos). The legs hold very well and are also original. Overall the condition is really good for a 50 year old drum.

The 20×14 Bass Drum

The bass drum is in excellent condition. The chrome has cleaned up excellent. The lugs are in excellent condition with very little pitting. The hoops do have some light marks and some flaking of the paint as you’d expect for a drum this age, it would be and option to sand them done and repaint them but we feel the look of the hoops only adds character to the kit. The drum is fitted with a Remo CS Head on the batter and the original Everplay head on the Resonant side. The wrap is in excellent condition with a few very light scratches. There has been an extra tom and cymbal added at some point using original era Premier parts, so it can be used both left handed and right handed (see photos). There are no extra holes, it is a good solid bass drum! 

 
The snare stand pictured is not included. Instead we have a rogers tom arm.
 
I have been as honest as I can in the above descriptions but if you require anymore information before buying please don’t hesitate to contact me on.
 
Come along and have a play!

We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels.
