Premier Drums Series Elite Drum Set
It’s fitting that UK drum company Premiere produces great drums for rock, since the UK has generated so many great rock bands over the years. The Elite Series is premier’s top of the line drum set with a sound that is perfect for rock music. The shells are available in either maple, birch, or a hybrid of the two called Gen-X. The fantastic ISO mount system produces nice sustain and a clear tone and the drums are made slightly undersized to help achieve the best sound when tuned properly.
The drums really hold their pitch well and are actually shipped with Remo heads which are a superior product to the usual stock heads shipped with other kits. Premier’s hardware is some of the best around it has a distinct look that is very cool; in particular, I find that the floor tom leg brackets are particularly easy to adjust and durable. As with most kits, there are several configurations and colors to choose from.
