Gorgeous looks and equally beautiful tone from Premier.
Premier’s flagship drumset range is the culmination of a production history spanning every key move in modern popular music. Crafted from the highest quality materials, Elite gives you drums as true musical instruments.
Elite’s immediate history as a natural development from the Premier Series, launched in 2003, gave Premier the opportunity to reassess the needs of today’s drummer and present you with an intelligent and exciting choice.
Premier kits are fitted with the flush ISO mount. A close circumference design which allows close tom placement alongside the well documented sustain, extended tonality and separation that shell mounting allows. Each tom is fitted with a pair of low-profile die-cast hoops, bringing further focus to the drum’s tone and its high-class appearance.
Not reliant upon just one type of drum shell, our use of North American maple and birch offer the Elite player detailed control of their own sound. Each tom and floor tom shell is undersized by 3mm allowing the head to seat flatter over the bearing edge extending the resultant tone and sustain.
Birch produces very strong mid to top end frequencies and maple is well known for its inherent focus of lower mids; built as a 7-ply un-supported shell. Drummers looking for power and projection or warmth and articulation are well catered for.
Gen-X is a unique offering with a 7-ply shell combining both our carefully chosen birch and maple in a well researched ratio (2-ply birch on the outside and 5-ply maple on the inside) that delivers the key sonic features of the two.
The Premier Series Elite is the ultimate offering for any drummer, offering stunning finishes that include vibrant woodgrain lacquers and lustrous sparkles in a combination of even-coat, fade, or burst applications.
